Win a Butter Keeper!


This butter keeper is so cute, I’m dying to have one, but I’m going to give one away to one of you instead! It’s a little ceramic pot that keeps butter soft and spreadable at room temperature for up to 30 days. It’s a really neat trick that works by creating an airtight seal with water you put in the base. What will they think of next?

  3. Mrs.Turkey says:

    This is the cutest thing….I’d really like to win this item. I submitted a recipe for an appetizer called “Party Rye”.

  4. Casid says:

    I submitted the Chewy Granola Bar recipe I made last night. My kids devour the store bought ones so I adapted the All Recipes version to make it healthier. Kids still love them!!

    I just ordered a butter crock from Amazon!! I needed a good storage solution for the wonderful Amish butter I bought from the local Amish bulk food store. I can’t believe how much better that butter tastes than the regular store bought stuff!

  5. debbie says:

    I submitted Fennel & Apple Salad

  6. rephiddy says:

    Hi Suzanne,
    I added yogurt cheese savory or, sweet to the recipe files today.
    It’s listed under a whole lot of categories so it will be easy to find.
    I would love to win the butter keeper too!


  7. Plum Bush Cottage says:

    I’ve seen these and wondered about how they worked. Pretty cool.

    The recipe I submitted is Cider Braised Pork with Carrots and Onions.

  8. KentuckyFarmGirl says:

    That butter keeper is so cute!

    I submitted Dreamsicle Fudge.

    My SIL makes this and calls it Dreamsicle Fudge but I have also seen it as Creamsicle or Orange Creamsicle Fudge.

  9. Phyllis Ryan says:

    Put in a recipe for Corn Cakes. We had them last night with dinner and my husband had leftovers with syrup for breakfast.

  10. Nancy says:

    HELP…I always seem to have trouble finding out who won the previous contest! Who one the Ball Blue Book???

  11. daiseymae says:

    Hey there! I submitted a recipe for Rhubarb Cake. It is delicious!

  12. sahmcolorado says:

    I posted Pigs in a Blanket!

  13. Brenda H. says:

    These butter bells are great I bought mine from the local cooking store. The only down side is to remember to change the water every 3 days. The butter stays so soft their great to have.

  14. JulieJ says:

    I have looked at butter bells for years, but never purchased one. Time to get posting on the recipes so I can have a chance at one for free!

    I posted a recipe for French (almost Russian) Dressing.

  15. JulieJ says:

    I posted an Almond Pound Cake recipe that I found on a the self-sustained living blog. It’s great plain but I’m thinking it would be fantastic with strawberries over it!

  16. JulieJ says:

    Janie’s Broccoli Cheese Rice casserole has been posted. I have to see how many other recipes I can get posted to increase my chance of winning that butter bell! My 15 y.o. daughter will no longer eat margarine because her health teacher told her class how close margarine’s molecular composition is to plastic, so now she only wants real butter. I don’t really mind though because I like butter better anyway but it would be fantastic if it was room temperature and could be spread easily.

  17. Connie says:

    I submitted Smoked Trout Spread. My daughter begs for this when she comes to visit.

  18. Moopsee says:

    I submitted Perfect Pumpkin Pie — a terrific recipe!
    Thanks for sharing this opportunity to win!

  19. Megan says:

    I added “Pastelitos” it’s a cookie recipe! Melt in your mouth! I want to go eat some right now! These other recipes people added look great too! I’m going to have to try them out!

  23. cityMousE says:

    I submitted my Dad’s Chili!

    Now I have to go shopping and make some.

  24. Pam G. says:

    Hi Suzanne, I’ve submitted my recipe for Pina Colada Fruit Salad. It’s always a hit whenever and wherever I serve it. I hope you like it! This salad is quick & simple to prepare. It’s great for a quick breakfast with fresh hot muffins! I’d love to have your Butter Keeper to display beside this salad with some muffins.

  25. Liz says:

    I submitted a fantastic recipe for Frosted Cherry Pie that my family snarfs down the second I make it. Think warm, homemade, Hostess Cherry Pie with almonds on it. Aarrggh. It’s so good. Especially with ice cream or cold milk.

  26. Pam G. says:

    I also submitted a second recipe today. This one is for Fresh Fruit Dip. I’ve been making this for over 40 years and everyone loves it. It’s fast and super easy to make, as well as pretty to serve. Great for Bridal or Baby showers.

  34. sahmcolorado says:

    I submitted Fluffy Multigrain Bread. 🙂

  35. Sharon mommafox says:

  36. Sharon mommafox says:

    Submitted a recipe for Creamed Cabbage. Uses cream cheese in the sauce. Good side dish with Ham Loaf or Ham Balls.

  37. Ruthmarie says:

    Asparagus Quiche is my contribution and perfect now that the season is on here in CA … leftovers make a nice quick breakfast! Surprisingly lean in calories thanks to the cottage cheese …

  38. Pete says:

    Just added Brandied Peaches!

  39. Neener says:

    I have this very same butter bell and I love it. Keeps the butter perfect for spreading. Sometimes a pain to remember to keep the water changed, but well worth the effort. I’ll skip the contest since I already have one, but good luck to the rest of you posters. The lucky winner is gonna love it.

  40. Dede ~ wvhomecanner says:

    Creamed Chipped Beef – but if my number gets chosen, choose again – I have a butter bell also 🙂

  46. Sharon mommafox says:

    I submitted a recipe for Black Bean Salsa. Gonna make some of Dede’s Rotel so I’ll have plenty to make salsa!

  47. lavenderblue says:

    Healthy Butter Spread recipe here so there’ll be something to keep in the butter holder. Of course, if you have a butter bell I guess you don’t need to make your butter spreadable. And if you have a cow…

  48. lavenderblue says:

    Then I had to submit Mrs. Beecher’s Cocoa Cookies, to make up for the healthy in the other recipe.

  49. kellyb says:

    I just submitted a recipe for Chicken and Wild Rice soup. Hope you enjoy

    I just added the Tamara’s Egg Bake. Got it out of the local paper a couple of weeks ago. Tried it this morning & it was great.

  51. Sharon Duffey says:

    Seasoned crackers. This is the best at Christmas or for parties. My friend made huge amounts of this for gifts & would make it in a 30 gallon garbage bag.

  52. Sharon Duffey says:

    Seafood salad. Great for summer meals when it is too hot to cook.

  64. Jill B says:

    I put in the pecan pie muffins.

  65. Ruthmarie says:

    Enchilada Casserole posted … my family prefers this Mexican-style casserole over the time-consuming enchiladas. Doesn’t break my heart as easy assembly of anything home cooked is always a personal preference!

    My recipe is “Nadyne’s Grated Sweet Potatoes” and it is a MUST TRY for anyone!

  67. Becky C. says:

    This submission is for 3C Bread. The 3 C’s are: Cherries, carrots, and coconut! This bread is wonderful when heated, with a dollop of butter melting on the slice………..

    Home-made Chocolate Ice cream….I’m getting hungry!
