Nuthin' like a Nuker!

This is for those of you who only use your Microwave Oven as an expensive popcorn popper or a very large hot water dispenser! (You know who you are!)

For the next several days, I will be writing about how to get the most out of your microwave. I’ll be including information and recipes that have a “Tupperware” flavor – no surprise there*Ü*! But rest assured, that you could use your own microwaveable cookware, glass, crockery or high-quality plastic. Cheap stuff won’t work…we’re really cooking here!

My microwave oven is one of my favorite kitchen tools! I use it nearly every day. I do admit to using it to heat water for a cup of tea and for reheating leftovers, but I also cook in it!

Any steamed vegetable dish I serve comes from the microwave. I cook meats, poultry, fish, eggs & even bake in it. That’s not saying that I don’t use the stovetop, regular oven or grill. But usually, some part of every meal comes from the “Nuker”! I hope this series will inspire more of you to do the same!

Here are some interesting tidbits about your microwave oven:

Here’s a quick and really delicious appetizer recipe to get you started! Super Bowl Sunday IS right around the corner, after all…

Parti-Arti Dip
(low carb - NOT low fat!)

½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
½ cup mayonnaise 1 can artichoke hearts (14 oz., drained)
1 can whole green chilies (7 oz., drained)
2 chopped green onions

Place all ingredients in the Quick Chef* & turn handle until chopped & well combined. Place contents into a 6-cup Heat ’N Serve* container. Microwave on High for 3-5 minutes until hot.

Serve with tortilla chips, pita or French bread, or fresh veggies.

Enjoy! Chris

P.S. Next time, we'll bake a cake (or two)!

*The Tupperware products mentioned in this recipe, the Quick Chef & the Heat 'N Serve container can be substituted by your food processor & another approx. 6-cup microwaveable container.

Some Deals Are Just Too Good to Pass Up!

We all know January is a time for resolutions, and one of them is usually to “get organized” and the other to “eat more sensibly”. I can’t think of a better way to do both of those things than to customize your kitchen with Tupperware’s Modular Mates!

Have a completely customized, organized and sanitized pantry can save you so much time, space, waste & money!

Organize the Kitchen in Your Life!

Have you ever…

~Discovered that you have 2 or 3 of the same item, in the very same cabinet, on the very same shelf, and they’re all open?

~Been frustrated by a lack of shelf space or cupboard space?

~Had to toss brown sugar or stale crackers?

~Been reluctant to open your cupboards in front of guests?

~Been forced to buy smaller, less economical amounts because larger quantities won’t keep?

~Been hungry for chips only to bite into one and have it taste awful?

~Had to clean up pasta or flour spills from half-opened bags?

Tupperware has the answer!

~With Custom Kitchen design, every Modular Mate has a permanent position, so no food ever gets “lost” or duplicated.

~Modular Mates stack together so every inch of your shelf space is put to use.

~You’ll never have to throw away hardened brown sugar again. Modular Mates are virtually airtight, prolonging the shelf life of ALL your staple foods.

~Custom Kitchen planning with Modular Mates will organize your cabinets or pantry so well, you’ll want to show them off or even leave your cabinet doors open! *Ü*

~Buying in bulk is easy with containers made for storing the most economical sizes.

~Even if it takes a year to use them all up, storing your crackers in Modular Mates will ensure they are going to be fresh when you are ready to use them.

~Modular Mates seal tight and stack snuggly. Nothing ever has a chance to spill or to get into (creepy crawlies) or get out of (creepy crawlies) the container!

Here's just a sampling of the deals for January!

All Modular Mates are on special for 40% off, EXCEPT the Modular Mate Tower, which is 50% off!
