Bilingual is Better


Last month I mentioned here that I had been chosen to be one of four bloggers to be featured on a national print and digital campaign for Cool Whip Whipped Topping. Well, I just got a sneak peek of the ad that will start showing up on newsstands mid-April  for the May issues of Every Day with Rachael Ray, Better Homes & Gardens and Cooking Light!  Then, in mid-May, June issues of Parents Magazine and Everyday Food will roll out with mi cara and a mention of SpanglishBaby on the ad.

While it’s still a bit odd to see myself on an ad, I do love the text: “Ana is passionate about making sure her daughter not only speaks two languages but also eats from both sides of her cultural heritage: Latino and American.” 

Check it out!

Those cones I’m holding up were inspired by me and are actually made with pudding and Cool Whip!

The Cool Whip cones actually brought back memories of one of my childhood birthdays when my mom made clown ice cream cones which I loved. Of course, I can’t remember what they tasted like, just how very special I felt about this fun treat and how cool they looked! For some reason, it’s one of my earliest childhood memories. Don’t even know if my mom remembers making them (I need to ask her!), but I can now tell her that her adding that special touch did make me feel special.

I can’t even begin to tell you how crazy, busy my life is lately and having fun, easy and tasty treats to make with my girl can turn an ordinary moment into an extraordinary one. Any little special and unexpected treat in my girl’s day, like these Cool Whip cones, is what I’m always looking out for.

Want to learn how easy it is to make them?
