I am working with the COOL WHIP brand this year and the 2012 COOL WHIP Creative Campaign is based on the notion that “What you add makes it.” It’s a reminder to all Moms that the little things she does, like adding a dollop of COOL WHIP to an otherwise plain cake or pie, turns ordinary into extra special.

I think it’s so true that what you add makes it.  Any special touches to your desserts will make everyone feel so special

Be sure to check out the COOL WHIP  Facebook Page for more helpful information.

Be sure to be on the lookout for me in the following magazines…May issue of Food Network Magazine and June issues of Family Circle, and Real Simple!

Take a look at this gorgeous Chocolate Lasagna below that was inspired by me and will be featured in my upcoming COOL WHIP ads.

We all know I am an OREO cookie fanatic, so those cookies layered with COOL WHIP, pudding and cream cheese make for an extraordinary dessert.  You are in for a treat with this one!
