Happy National Ohio Day! Today we all celebrate the 17th state to join the union. But you knew that, right?
We're residents of Columbus - Ohio's capital - and we're proud to live in the Buckeye State. Our 2 million metro residents work in insurance, banking, education, research, light manufacturing, creative businesses and government. We are home to a world-renowned zoo and Jack Hanna; the Muirfield golf tournament and Jack Nicklaus; the Ohio State University and its Buckeyes; NHL hockey and pro soccer teams; arts; and an award-winning science museum. Best of all, our city is a great place to find a job and raise a family.
When you visit Ohio (or fly over - haha - we know), you'll see cities, forest, farmland and water. Nearly all of our upper border is made up of the coastline of Lake Erie, the shallowest of the Great Lakes (and part of the US border with Canada). We claim a whole bunch of past presidents, and are the birthplace of the Wright Brothers of airplane fame, and astronauts including Neil Armstrong and John Glenn. Plus, the entire state is full of friendly, resourceful folks.
So, let's all celebrate with some cookies, OK?
We're giving away a really fun FAMILY BAKING KIT in early November! It's the perfect way to introduce your family to the joys of creating together.
The kit includes two child-size bright green aprons; two nested sets of star and flower cookie cutters; two Progressive PrepWork decorating squeeze bottles with 6 metal decorating tips; a set of 5 Wilton food decorating paintbrushes; a Wilton mini icing spatula; and of, course, a SideSwipe beater sized to fit your KitchenAid mixer. We may include a surprise or two, as well!

With October's shorter days and (for some of us) cooler temperatures, the kids are moving indoors and looking for something to do. Why not spend some time with your loved ones and share the joys of baking with your family? (For those of you in the Southern Hemisphere - family baking is fun in the spring, too!)
Throughout this month, we will bring you simple and fun recipes that even your kids can make. So grab your mixer, a few cookie cutters and some food coloring and get baking!
P.S. Please post your results with hashtag #FamilyBakingMonth. We'd love to see what you're up to!
P.P.S. If, like ours, your results turn out a little less than professional, say your kids did it ;)
This is prime baking season, with lots of treats using apples, pumpkin, chocolate and nuts. To help improve your baking, we'll be adding more tips on our blog and continue to provide tested recipes using seasonal ingredients. We also will add videos to our website and our new You Tube channel, featuring mixing demos and technical help for your mixers and SideSwipe.
We also have a special events planned and some new products coming......so stop back often!
