Welch’s Share Your Moments + PB&J Cookies! #Sharewhatsgood

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Welch’s. I received product samples to facilitate my review, and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

This photograph of my cousin, daughter and son at his graduation party in July makes me smile every time I see it. It reminds me about what’ important in life — sharing memories and good times with the ones you love. In the end, that’s the only thing that really matters! Family is so important to me, I grew up surrounded by a family that celebrated together for every holiday and birthday — sometimes several times in order to make sure everyone could join in. It was crazy and chaotic at times but there’s no way I would trade my family for anything!

Besides spending time together, I know that food also creates memories — at least with our family! Like so many, I grew up on Welch’s products. To this day, Welch’s 100% grape juice is my favorite store-bought juice. I have always like the intense grape flavor and natural sweetness. We also always had a jar or two of our favorite flavors of jelly from Welch’s in the cupboard. That’s why as a mom I trust Welch’s whenever I need to make my daughter’s peanut butter and grape jelly sandwich for her school lunch. And when I want to whip up a batch of jelly thumbprints for my husband or step-dad as a special treat, Welch’s grape or strawberry jelly will be the one I reach for.

    Those cookies look yummy! Welch’s is the brand I buy to. I still prefer to buy my Welch’s Jelly in those glass jars that you can reuse. I love those.

    I think this is a great recipe idea! I’ve always loved thumprint and peanut butter cookies – but I never thought to marry the two.

    Since it’d have protein and fruit in it, I’m wondering if I call it breakfast ;)
