Good morning

Let's get this day started ....




What is going on in your life?
What new adventure are you starting this week?

Can you believe it is already the middle of October?
Where did the year go?

I probably should have added this at the beginning of the year, but lets get our thoughts started now.  That way IF you haven't started your adventure already - you could start putting things into place so that you will have everything ready for the new year.

What do you think?
Is it a plan?

Yup that's right it IS Friday ... the 13th



Are you superstitious?



Are you scared yet?

Do you have any "bad" memories of this day?
Share so we can all feel like we can tackle anything ... 'cause obviously you did.

Just a thought

With so many feeling like they need a miracle ...


And, yes sometimes I am included in that comment.

I do try to remember all the wonderful people and things that I have in my life.
And remember that miracles happen when we need them most, but also when we are grateful and thankful for those things that we do have.

Let's face it ... why should we be given more if we aren't happy and grateful for what we do have.
Sometimes its just that little thought when we see folks that are in a situation that is worse off than our situation ...
But for the Grace of God, go I

Chocolate "to die for" Brownies

Don't know about you, but sometimes I just have this "craving" for something rich and creamy and of course chocolate.
I think this one from my Tupperware site fits the bill.


Yield: 16
Serving Size: 1 brownie
Ingredients
    For the brownies
  • 2 cups milk or semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 3 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp. brewed coffee or espresso
  • ¼ tsp. coarse kosher salt
  • 4 eggs
    For the Buckeye topping
  • 2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp. coarse kosher salt
  • 1 cup milk or semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3 tbsp. heavy cream
  • 1 cup chopped peanuts
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325° F.
  2. In the ¾-Qt. Stack Cooker Casserole, stir together chocolate chips, heavy cream, butter, vanilla, coffee, and salt. Microwave 45 seconds. Remove from microwave, let stand 2 minutes; stir until smooth.
  3. In the base of the Power Chef® System with paddle attachment, add eggs. Cover and pull cord until well beaten. Remove cover, add 2 spoonfuls of chocolate mixture to eggs, cover and pull cord until well mixed. Add remaining chocolate mixture and pull cord until well mixed.
  4. Transfer chocolate mixture to the UltraPro 2-Qt. Square Pan. Place pan in oven. Bake 25 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center of the brownies comes out clean. Remove pan from oven; let stand.
  5. Meanwhile, make the Buckeye toppings. In the ¾-Qt. Stack Cooker Casserole stir together peanut butter, powdered sugar, granulated sugar, vanilla, and salt. Microwave on high power 30 seconds or until soft and spreadable. Spoon mixture over brownies; using a knife spread evenly over brownies.
  6. In the large 2-cup Micro Pitcher add chocolate chips and cream. Microwave 45 seconds; let stand 1 minute, stir until smooth. Pour chocolate over peanut butter, spread evenly. Sprinkle top with peanuts, gently press into chocolate.
  7. Refrigerate 20 minutes to set. 
  8. Cut into 16 pieces, serve chilled or at room temperature.

How about you add some ....

Limelight by Alcone into your life??

I am sure you have seen me post on Facebook, either on my page or in my group or Pinterest about how much I love my Limelight by Alcone products.
How the skin care is second to none and leaping bunny certified (which is a really big deal), or how I am loving my professional quality makeup.  You know the same makeup used by some of the biggest and best makeup artists on TV and Theater stars.

This month, you can join my team and get paid a bonus (that even I can't get) just for joining in October.

Interested?


These bonuses shown above are in addition to what you can earn as a Beauty Guide in training.
The kit itself is worth its weight in gold (and no it doesn't cost that much).
Oh and our products may seem like they cost a lot ... but they last so long that it seems like you are stealing them.  The colors are unbelievably pigmented so you get to use less than you think you would need compared to your "old" makeup. 

If I've peeked your interest, either in joining my team or trying the products yourself, you can check out my Limelight site or message me with questions.

I have to say many of my products have lasted 6 months or more!
So you see, I really am feeling like I am stealing ... since I don't have to buy more every month.

#UltimateKitchen #FrenchPress for a special coffee experience

I know there are many of us, yes me included, that run on coffee. 
I do take a break a few times during the year, but I use to kid that coffee runs through my veins, especially during tax season.  I find at times like then that I am a "chain coffee drinker", or so it seems.

And, Yes we do love coffee, so its not just that we need it, but we love the flavor, the texture, the taste.  And making coffee in a French Press with a good ground coffee makes that experience even better. 

https://ultimate-kitchen.com/product/french-press-coffee-maker

When I was asked to try this product, I was all for it.
Yes I have a one cup coffee maker, and I do still have it on my counter ... but this is perfect for those times when we want to savor a cup or two.

Before I even made my first cup, I really liked the way it looked.
It had a sexy look.

And of course it seemed to fit perfectly in my hand.

I can definitely see using this for when company comes to visit.  I can just see their eye light up when it comes on a pretty tray with breakfast.  
They will realize that they truly are welcome in your home, that is, if they had any doubt.










Even the box gives you everything you need to have a great first experience.  


















Everything except the coffee that is.



From the first try, this press made great coffee, but as with anything, your taste may want to use more or less coffee. Or make your ground coffee a bit coarser, depending on whether you have a dark roast or a medium roast.



It can be a bit of a trial and error, but even the "errors" have a good flavor and texture.  
If you have a favorite brand of whole bean coffee, this would be perfect for you.  
But remember, you don't need to actually grind your own beans, almost everywhere you can get whole beans, you can have them grind them to your specifications.  

Here was my first experience.

But trust me when I tell you, there have been and will be many more uses.  Yes this was a definite win for me when I was asked to review this product.


I did receive this product for free or at a steep discount as part of the Tomoson.com review program in exchange for my honest review. 
Regardless, I never recommend anything that I don't feel would be of benefit to my readers.  
Reviews for this product may have been posted on Amazon or other outlets based on availability.

Mid September 2017 brochure!

Yes it is that time of the month again ...
No not THAT time, 
it's time for the 

And there are some really AWESOME pieces in this brochure!

Check it out .. its APPLE time 
and we have some awesome awesome things to go with 
Apple Time!


I LOVE my Mandolin for so many different things, but to slice up apples on a nice even thickness for apple pie, apple dippers, ... can't wait for you to see how well these work.
And of course we all need an apple corer!  I need to get a few. Don't ask.

Oh did I say apple dippers?  Check out the dipper bowl ... makes some great dippers for your fruit, but its all about the apple in September right??  (chocolates are perfect right?) 
I also LOVE the color of the vent n serve pieces.  

Perfect for apple time but also for tomato sauces you want to heat up without worry of "staining".
And of course the kids lunch sets (Cars and Wonder Woman) are fantastic.  They could be the hit of the lunch crowd!



And with any mid month brochure, there are short term sale items and this month it will be for 3 weeks!!!  AND it has 2 more of the Modular Mate Sets ... at a big discount!  



Don't wait until January, when we normally have our Modular Mate sales.. I would grab some now and then you can pick up more in January if you need to.  

Have a question?  Give me a shout.
Want to join my team?  Talk to me OR you can join right from my Tupperware Site and I will give you a shout out and help you on your way.  It is fun to Party for a Living!
