Love Cooking Company review and giveaway

I don't know if any of you know this about me but I love to bake. Sometimes I use it as time to relax, some times it is a fun activity to do with my children. We actually bond over cookies and cupcakes and have fun doing it.  When I got the Mrs. Fields Half N Half Cooking pan, Sto N Go Dessert Carrier, and Scoop N Cut Cookie Tool from Love Cooking Company I was so excited.  The first day I had off I took the opportunity to bake cupcakes in my Half N Half cupcake pan. I didn't even wait for the kids to get off of school, I in fact wanted to surprise them but I ran a little too late. They walked in on me pouring the batter and their eyes got extremely big. I had dyed the batter pink and purple for the girls, orange and green for the boys.

The cupcakes were a huge hit with my children but I can see them great for any occasion.  I already have green and red planned for Christmas and black and orange for Halloween.  When I asked my children to rate the Half N Half  on a scale from 1 - 5 one said a five another said 12.  I'm not sure if they meant it the way I took it by I would give it more than a five if I could too.

The Half N Half although very simple, it's a cupcake/muffin pan with a separate
plastic removable piece that has a divider in the middle for the mix.  It is a genius idea it's one of those things that makes you say, why didn't I think of that. You may think to yourself I don't need that . Why would I want to make cupcakes that are different colors. But it's not just colors you can easily do strawberry chocolate cupcakes. If you are a muffin eater, this can be used for muffins too can't decide what flavor you want? Have them both in one muffin.  The pan is a great quality and all the cupcakes baked quickly and evenly. It was super easy to wash and as you can see I'm very messy! All the excess came of with warm water and a sponge no scrubbing required.

With holidays around the corner Mrs. Fields Sto N Go and Scoop N Cut Cookie tool are perfect to bring homemade treats to everyone you visit.  With the Scoop N Cut there is no guessing when it comes to cookie measurements. When I do cookies they come out different sizes, one is huge the others are little. When that happens they don't all cook evenly.  All you do with the Scoop N Cut is scoop some cookie dough and drop it on the pan. There are two sizes to choose from but either way all of your cookies will be even. The middle doubles as a cutter for the cookie dough that is in a roll. Then to carry them, the Sto N Go is perfect. It is made of a very sturdy plastic and has two adjustable shelves. it lays horizontal and the handle is on top so you carry that way as well. you can also use it for brownies or other treats.
