There's always room for Jello!

Today, I am posting a delicious new gelatin recipe that would be perfect for Cinco de Mayo. The red, green & white color would work well for Christmas, too. Yikes! Am I getting ahead of myself here? Lime, Coconut & Strawberry flavors really speak "celebration" to me.

Gelatin desserts don't seem to be in vogue as much now.  But I can tell you, my experience is that when they are served, they disappear! Comments like, "I haven't had Jello in... forever!", or "Gosh, I forgot how refreshing Jello is", always accompany the presentation of this cold, flavorful, jiggly beauty.  C'mon, the colors are even mouth-watering!

What better way to "cool down" the spicy/fiery flavors of a good Mexican feast?  Not counting Margaritas here. :)

Isn't this a beauty??

For an easier to read copy, click on "Featured Recipe" above.

In the next couple of days, my newsletter subscribers will receive this recipe, one for Simply Salsa, and another for "Unexpected" Margaritas (they are easy AND delicious).  I might throw in a couple more, who knows?

Products you'll want to prepare & serve all that delicious goodness are On Sale Now.

I Vote "NO" for bagged lettuce!

I have purchased my share of bagged lettuce, in the past.  Won't be doing that in the future.  I just read an article, yes another one, titled "The Truth About Bagged Lettuce".  (Click on the title to read the article.)  There were some new ideas to consider; such as the water usage to triple-wash, for one. 

As a Tupperware consultant, with a Tupperized kitchen, I not only know better (cost vs. convenience) but I have the tools to do salad right.  I am making a commitment to use the tools I have & "ditch" the bagged lettuce for good.

The convenience of opening a bag of lettuce is pretty enticing.  But I (you) can duplicate it with just a little effort.

  • Buy whole heads of your favorite greens
  • Wash them yourself
  • Spin them dry
  • Tear into bite-sized pcs., or not
  • Store properly for maximum keeping time & freshness
Tupperware has a couple of tools that can help. 

Our salad spinner is terrific.  It is a large capacity, the bowl comes with a seal so that you can actually clean/serve your salad in the same bowl.  The seal makes the bowl great for potato, pasta and layered salads too.  Normally $49.50, it is on sale on my website for just $27.  I don't know for sure how long the sale will last...

The second very helpful item is the FridgeSmart Containers.  These will keep your produce fresh longer, I promise!  By controlling airflow & moisture, according to the needs of the particular type of produce, you can keep things at least 3 time longer than if store in plastic in your "slime drawers"!  These are also available as a set or individually on my website.
I will be using that big container (e.) to store my torn lettuce in the future.  I'll still have the advantage of instant salads, and it'll stay fresh longer!

Traveling Wine Tasting & Snack Set

I had a great time at our Tupperware Organization Sales Meeting/Rally on Monday night!  Lots of fun, training, tips & recipes are always a part of the evening. 

This rally had a Tourist theme, because it is getting closer to vacation time (Yay!) and also because Steff was giving away a cute travel-themed rolling suitcase FULL OF TUPPERWARE!

She asked us all to dress like tourists & to bring a travel idea to share, using Tupperware.  I put on my pedal pushers, flip flops and Hawaiian shirt, and also put together a wine tasting & snack set to keep in the car.  More than once, my husband & I have been on a "drive" and decided on an impromptu picnic.  Nothing worse than having to buy a cheap corkscrew, knife, plastic glasses and paper plates for a little wine & cheese!  Especially when you have all these thing at home. :(

This kit is now safely stowed in the trunk of my car.  We're ready for wine & snacks anytime!

First a note:  I have not been able to log into this blog for a few days.   This morning, everything is fine.  Have any of you had this problem recently?

Tupperware's new Winter/Spring catalog has some new products that I just love!  Counterscaping Containers for liquid and dry products, are pretty enough to sit on your counters, convenient to your prep & cooking area.  I've included the link to a 2-minute video about them, below.  I love having ingredients at hand when I'm cooking.  I am also NOT a member of the clear counter club!   Those who know me, know I love my stuff around me. :)  That being said, I can see these containers on a nice tray, stashed in a cupboard or pantry, and brought out only when needed.

Liquid Container Set - $39

Dry Seasoning Container Set - $36

It would be great to hear what you think about this new product!  So please leave a comment, either way!  Thanks!

Focaccia Tiles

I've been looking at the "Food & Drink" category on Pinterest again!  It is a constant source of inspiration for me.  This morning, I found this gorgeous photo and delicious-sounding recipe for Focaccia Tiles.

This recipe presents so many possibilities!  There must be hundreds of yummy things with which to top this no-knead focaccia bread.  The author's choices are just a place to start.  One topping for me would be Butter-Balsamic Caramelized Onions.  What would you like to add?

Next time I am having friends for drinks & snacks, this will be on the menu!  I'd probably cut it smaller, just nibble size. 

It's 4:52 am & now I'm craving caramelized onions. LOL!


P.S.  It's a double sale flyer week @ Tupperware!  You can shop from TWO sale flyers, for this week only.  The Modular Mates® Storage containers are still on sale, and there is a really cute set of Valentine's Day Canisters, too! *Ü*

Oh My Darling, Clementine!

I love this time of year!  One of my favorite fruits, the Clementine, is abundant & grown right in my own "neighborhood".  These little beauties, a type of mandarin orange, are sweet, easy to peel, and almost always seedless.  One perfect little package...

I found a recipe for Clementine sorbet on Pinterest that sounds delicious.  I am going to try it this weekend.  Here's the photo, and the link to the recipe is in the caption.
