Momi Tips on Creating Meals and Memories
It was three years ago when we started baking cookies and cakes and experimenting with dishes. My Firstborn loves Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, so we often use a pack of Reese’s as an ingredient for our homemade cookies. The price of the peanut butter flavored chocolate isn’t too friendly, so we opted for Lily’s Peanut Butter.
Versatile Kitchen Staple
We grew up having Lily’s Peanut Butter at home. It’s my favorite sandwich spread. And as we grow up and evolve, so did Lily’s. The brand is not just the sweet peanut spread that we’ve come to love. It has become a versatile kitchen staple that transforms ordinary dishes into exciting, delicious, and nutritious meals.
Among the cookies we bake, the boys love the most our Crunchy Peanut Butter with Chocolate Bits Soft Cookies. They could wolf down a dozen in one sitting. They pair it best with cucumber juice or mango shake. Another favorite is the Blueberry Peanut Butter Muffin which my children love to bring as snacks at the school. We’ve also tried Peanut Butter and Walnut Loaf Bread. Our boys love to have them especially when we stay at home and watch movies on Fox Movies or HBO Hits.
Unforgettable Childhood Memories
We seldom buy cookies, loaves of bread, and cakes. We prefer to bake them ourselves. Aside from making sure of the ingredients we use, we also create childhood memories which the boys can look back to when they become parents themselves. We need no complicated elements to bake our cakes and cookies. A simple jar of Lily’s Crunchy Peanut Butter or its Chocolate variant is more than enough to create healthy recipes.
More than just comfort food, Lily’s Peanut Butter’s sweet creaminess excites happy recollection of wonderful past experiences. Such memories are the likes of whipping cookie or cake batter which bring laughter, friendly smiles, and fun giggles to everyone. That there may be batter splattered all over the kitchen counter, on the floor, and even on their faces, everyone continues to work and have fun. For this mother, we could always clean the mess anyway. What is more important are the memories that come with the baking, the naughty dipping of fingers on the batter, and the time spent working on our homemade cookies.
Healthy Meal Ideas
More than as a snack and breakfast option, Lily’s Peanut Butter is also a healthy ingredient for making savory dishes, peanut-based dips, and yes, even homemade ice cream. For one, my mother’s Kare-Kare is made extra creamy and buttery because of the sweet creaminess of Lily’s Peanut Butter. After sauteing the onion, garlic, and meat, she would pour Lily’s Peanut Butter into the pan. And I so love the smell it creates, making me recollect those days when my mom would do everything for her only daughter, cooking Kare-Kare even on ordinary days included.
As a wife to our hardworking head of the family, I show love to him by preparing his favorite Lumpiang Sariwa with Lily’s Peanut Butter-based dip. And for my children, I love whipping not just cookies, but homemade peanut butter flavored ice cream for them. They also love our fried tilapia with soy sauce and peanut butter sauce.
Healthy and Natural Peanut Butter Brand
Contrary to the belief that peanut butter is unhealthy, it, on the other hand, contains brain-boosting vitamins and minerals to keep one’s memory sharp. It also contains dietary fiber, iron, potassium, and protein. The oil that pools on top of a newly opened jar of Lily’s is proof that the product is free from chemicals, emulsifiers or stabilizers. The brand is 100 percent natural and free from harmful additives with only natural sugar and iodized salt as added ingredients to create that creamy and sweet peanut butter spread Filipinos have come to love and appreciate.
Meals and Memories
I grew up with my mom cooking delicious meals her only daughter would request. She made it look easy even though she works solo doing all the household chores, parenting a child, and working for a living. I will always remember her Kare-kare and its sweet, creamy taste and equate it to her undying love and care for me.
Now that I am a mother, I would like my boys to have the same fun memories of their childhood. These memories are what would boost their self-confidence, strengthen their faith in their family, and build their character to be better parents soon.
