We are super excited to announce our biggest contest yet! When Kraft contacted us months ago about doing something fun together we never imagined it would be this fun! Kraft is one of those classic American companies that has touched our lives (and our tummies) from day one. To this day I still use Kraft Singles on my grilled cheese and I know there's a box or 3 of Mac 'n Cheese in Salli's pantry! So, without further ado, here's the scoop on this sweet contest...
