I love butter. This is a fact that is well established, well known, well proven, and well demonstrated. My fridge is filled not with sticks of butter, but pounds. As an ingredient, I believe in butter. Butter is a church of which I am a member. If butter ran for president, I would vote for it. It adds color, flavor, beauty, and joy to absolutely everything I cook.
It adds meaning to my days.
Purpose to my life.
What I'm trying to tell you is this, ladies and gentlemen: I wouldn't want to live in a world in which butter didn't exist.
Have I mentioned lately that I love butter?
Today I'm happy to announce that I have joined up with Land O'Lakes to help sing the praises of a brand new product they're putting on the market, one that is currently rocking my world.
It's called Butter with Olive Oil & Sea Salt.
I've tried it. I've cooked with it. I've smeared it on warm, crusty bread. And I can tell you without hesitation that I absolutely love it. It has a slightly lighter quality than regular butter, there's just a hint of olive oil flavor and the saltiness is just delish and really sets it apart.
Over the next few months, I'll be sharing brand-new recipes using this luscious new butter in cooking posts and videos over on landolakes.com. And if you watch Food Network and the Cooking Channel, you'll see occasional spots featuring me, the new butter, and all the deliciously neato things you can do with it (as well as some wild floral shirt, my unruly cowlick, and a pair of large earrings. And my unruly cowlick. Wait, I already said that. Never mind).
My fun with Land O'Lakes will begin later this month, and I'll let you know whenever I post new recipes over on landolakes.com. TV spots will begin showing this fall, featuring back-to-school recipes and easy dishes made with fall ingredients.
As for me and Land O'Lakes, there's hardly a more fitting partner for me to team up with. I'm proud to say that their butter has bulged out of my fridge for years and years, and I love them as a company. Land O'Lakes is a member-owned agricultural cooperative based in Minnesota with 3,200 producer-members, 1,000 member-cooperatives, and 9,000 employees. Though we're on totally different ends of the bovine spectrum (ahem), I consider us to be agricultural friends.
I'm excited! We're going to have lots of fun.
(Oh, and one last thing: Yum.)
