Bombay Mango Chicken Salad

What's for dinner in your house tonight?
I know in the summer at least, we like to do lighter dinners and salads fit the bill.  But to be "filling" we need to make sure we have to add some protein.  This salad seems to hit the mark.

Yield: 8
  • 1/3 cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup low-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp. curry powder
  • 3 tbsp. lime juice
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 3 cooked chicken breasts (poached or steamed in the Tupperware®  SmartSteamer), diced
  • 1 ripe mango, peeled, pitted and chopped
  • 1 cup red seedless grapes, halved
  • 8 oz. can water chestnuts, drained
  • ½ cup salted, roasted cashews
  • salt and pepper

  1. In your favorite large bowl whisk together the yogurt, mayonnaise, curry powder, lime juice and honey.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and gently combine with the dressing.
  3. Serve immediately or refrigerate for up to three days.

Tupperware has so many ideas and ways to make your meals interesting as well as easy.

Lemon Raspberry Cake in Minutes

I love the flavors of this cake.
Lemon goes great with so many things, but add some raspberries and I'm in heaven.  And then make it so I can have this any time in less than 30 minutes .. yes you heard me - from gathering the ingredients to cutting/serving in the Tupperware Stack Cooker.  I keep telling you it is super versatile and worth its weight in gold!  Here's another reason I think so.

Yield: 8
Serving Size: 1 piece


  • 1⅓ cup all-purpose flour
  • ⅔ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ¼ tbsp. salt
  • ½ cup canola oil
  • 1 cup reduced-fat (2%) milk
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • ¼ cup fresh raspberries

  1. Spray ¾-qt. Casserole/Cover with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Combine all ingredients except raspberries in a medium bowl and whisk until combined.
  3. Pour batter into greased ¾-qt. Casserole/Cover and arrange raspberries on the top. 
  4. Stack and microwave on high power 15–20 minutes. OR 
  5. If making cake without stacking, microwave on high power 6 minutes.
Not a big fan of raspberries or want to try a different fruit?  I bet blueberries instead of the raspberries would be awesome in here too.

Make your own Cereal Bars

I know a little bit ago I showed you how to make your own Pop Tart type treat and told you there were so many more options.  
If you are "older" and buy those cereal bars from the grocery store or quick marts, here I'm going to share a make your own version.

Serves: 8-10 bars


  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp. table salt
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, melted
  • ½ tsp. vanilla
  • ½ cup honey
  • 10 tbsp. desired jam for filling or 1½ cups fresh strawberries, hulled & chopped using the Power Chef.


  1. Place oats into base of Power Chef fitted with blade attachment. Cover and pull cord until oats are finely cut.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine oats, both flours, salt and baking powder.
  3. In a small bowl, stir together egg, melted butter, vanilla and honey.
  4. Pour butter mixture into flour and stir until combined.
  5. Place dough onto Silicone Wonder® Mat and roll out until approximately ¼″ thick.
  6. Trim off edges of dough with the edge of the Silicone Spatula to make a rectangle.
  7. Using the edge of the Silicone Spatula, make as many 3½ x 4″ rectangles as possible with the dough. Re-roll any remaining dough.
  8. Spread 1 tbsp. of jam or chopped strawberries onto each piece of dough. Fold dough into thirds to close the bar and gently press down the ends.
  9. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  10. Place bars onto baking pan lined with Silicone Wonder® Mat. If desired, sprinkle with oats and bake for 15 minutes or until lightly brown.
  11. Store in sealed container up to three days or freeze up to one month.
I really love the idea of making things myself and Tupperware makes it so much easier.

Interested in any of the Tupperware pieces used above, you can grab them from my Tupperware Site day or night.

SuperSummer Specials Until July 1st

I had another post I was going to do today on how to make a healthy snack or portable breakfast for those grab and go days, but I got this in my email this morning and I had to share this one first.  But don't worry that post will show up soon.

The prices on this flyer are ONLY available until midnight July 1st, but at these prices, I think they may just go fast.  I don't know what the stock numbers are, but if they are something that you would want - you should order sooner rather than later so you don't miss out.

They are available at these prices online, so you can shop on my Tupperware Site at any time this week and still get these great prices!  

Wonderlier Bowls are a staple (or should be) in our homes.   
The pitcher is a GALLON size, which is not the norm.  Most pitchers I see are at most 2 Quarts, so this one is a no brainer quick I want one pitcher.
The tumbler set is perfect.  I personally use mine by putting some of my chosen drink in the tumbler and freeze it.  Then I can add the rest of my drink and have a cold drink without having it watered down.  

Oh and just because I can, IF we sell at least 15 of these pieces this week, I will have a mystery drawing that will include everyone who makes a purchase.  The mystery drawing prize will be something Tupperware, the prize will depend on the number of pieces sold - more pieces the bigger the prize.

Don't miss out on these great pieces that will make your summer stress free and stops the worry about broken glass while at the pool or beach or event dining on the deck!

What matters

I really like this one.
Sometimes we think because we were at one time considered one of the "bad" kids, or we were labeled as "difficult", that we don't have a worth.

That is definitely not the case.  
You see .. it really doesn't matter where you have been, yes that is part of you, but doesn't have to define you.

We all have "baggage" to carry.  
But we all need to "learn" and "grow" from our experiences, from who we use to be, to become who we are meant to be.

Here is a great way to make you matter every day.

When we learn these not so simple facts, and start putting them into practice in our lives ... then and only then, will we be able to put our past where it belongs, in the past, so that we can be judged by our here and now.

I love how this ends .. 
Don't strive to make your presence noticed,
Just to make your absence felt.

Become that person that everyone looks for when you aren't there.  Be that person that everyone wants around.

Eggs for Brunch or any day

I love having my Stack Cooker from Tupperware.
I get to make whole meals in the microwave (yes I know but with the Stack Cooker you wouldn't know its from a microwave) in no time at all.

Here is a great idea for a brunch or with the Stack Cooker any morning.

Yield: 8
Serving Size: 1 cup

  • 8 eggs
  • ½ red bell pepper, cored & halved
  • ½ green bell pepper, cored & halved
  • 1 small onion, peeled & quartered
  • 1 cup cheese
  • 1 tsp. coarse kosher salt

  1. In 1¾-Qt. Casserole, whisk together eggs.
  2. In base of Power Chef® System, fitted with blade attachment, combine peppers and onion. Cover and pull cord until roughly chopped.
  3. Whisk pepper mixture, cheese and salt into eggs in Casserole.
  4. If making a whole meal, stack and microwave on high power 15–20 minutes or until eggs have cooked through. OR
  5. If making alone, microwave on high power for 8-10 minutes or until eggs have cooked through.
  6. Slice and serve warm.

This looks really good and will make you look like a "star" in the kitchen without breaking a sweat.  So many things you can make with the Stack Cooker that I think it should be in every kitchen.  If you don't have one, you should hop on over to my Tupperware Site and check it out.  If you purchase from my site, message me and I will send you a file of recipes to get you started.

Tupperware ideas in Essential Tools for a Savory Summer

As a Tupperware Consultant, I get to see first hand what Tupperware feels are Essential Tools for each season.  
I am going to show you those items that are available in the current Summer Catalog. Some may be available in the Fall Catalog, but until I see the actual pre-released catalog, I can't tell for sure.

1) Fridge Stackables Family Set
With two 2¾-cup containers and one each 1.5-qt. container, grid and seal, it’s perfect for taking sandwich contents for picnic or beach outings.  

It's great for all kinds of "road trips" or just your daily lunch preparation.

2) Corkscrew
Uncork a cool glass of wine on those warm summer nights. Easy to use, and easily pops any cork without breakage every time.

3) Ice Cream Scoop
I scream, You scream, We all scream for ice cream! Cuts through the hardest ice cream, scoop after scoop.  My hubby "requested" this one to replace an old scoop we had.  He loves this one.
4) Hamburger Press and Keepers Set
Set of four seal-together Keepers, with top seal, press and ring to shape burger patties for backyard cookouts.  Great for making your burgers (beef, chicken, turkey) ahead of time too!
5) Zest ’N Press® Gadget
Add a touch of flavor to water and other beverages for a more fulfilling way to hydrate all summer long.  Or add that little "extra" (lemon or lime zest or nutmeg and so much more) to your dishes anytime.

6) Quick Chef® Pro System
Fresh summer salsas made exactly to your liking. Turning the handle easily controls the speed of processing, so your dish can be whatever consistency you desire.  

You can even make your own home-made ice cream with the help of this baby!

7) Fridge Smart Set
Helps to keep your fruit and veggies fresher longer.  The new design offers better air circulation and moisture protection for even longer lasting FRESH produce.  I rarely throw out anything now, we get to buy on sale and eat it all!  
Right now available as a BOGO, don't miss out. 

As you can probably guess, I have all of these, so you can say that I agree with Tupperware. And yes I really do use them, some every day and others at least weekly.

Its all about choices

We always need to remember that we are the one who is ultimately responsible for our actions.  We are the only one who is responsible for our own happiness.

Lately I think that is something that needs to be taught to an entire generation (maybe 2) because they seem to think they are "entitled" or that they are "owed" something because they are here, or a certain race or religion or nationality.

Whatever happened to "earning" the things that we want?
Whatever happened to "respecting" others even if they are "different" than we are?  

I'm not talking about handing over the keys to the kingdom to make others happy.  Their being happy is not your responsibility, it is theirs. 
They need to make their own choices and be happy about it.

What do you think?
Am I totally off base?
Have I gone left when everyone else has gone right?

Happy Anniversary Honey

Today is our 35th wedding anniversary.
I can't believe its been 35 years.

Its been an interesting 35 years filled with all kinds of wonderful things.   This is not to say it has all been sunshine and roses, but you never promised me a rose garden.

Of all the wonderful things that have happened over the 35 years, the best has to be Dan and Jenn who have given us more joy (and yes frustration and fears) than anything else.  In many ways they are so very similar, in others, so very different.  And I wouldn't trade them for anything in the world.

If anyone is interested .. or if you would like to surprise us with an anniversary gift, here are the "traditional" gifts for this year.


Traditional Anniversary Gift: Coral
Modern Anniversary Gift: Jade
35th Travel Gift Ideas: Cayman Islands, or U.S. Virgin Islands

I will say that I don't have any coral or jade and we haven't been to either of the Islands noted above, but we are game for anything.

Just kidding.

Happy Anniversary Love

Happy Father's Day 2016

I just wanted to stop and take a few minutes to wish each and every father among my readers, followers, friends and yes my dad too,  a very 

I know that you are busy, as you always seem to be, but I also know that when your child calls, you will be right there because that is where your heart is.

We sometimes seem to take you for granted, as we go about our day, but honest dad we really don't.  We always seem to be running in 3 different directions at once, always trying to do even more than our best.  
But, you see dad, that is because we want to be like you.  
Yes even your daughters are trying to be just like you, because whether she tells you or not, you are her hero.

Finding Dory at Lunch

Do you have a child that is in love with Dory, even before they have been able to see the movie?  Or maybe you just saw it and already they want to "find Dory".
I know when my kids were little, they would find something that they loved and we had (yes HAD) to find everything with that character.

If you have a lover of Finding Dory, Tupperware has the answer for you.  Check out this lunch set.
Set includes:
  • Sandwich Keeper, 
  • Snack Cup and 
  • 16-oz. tumbler with liquid-tight seal and flip-top spout
I need to get a set just for me ... I love to collect the Disney items we have at Tupperware.  

Check out Finding Dory and so much more, on my Tupperware Site.  You can shop any time of day or night .. and of course if you have a question, just give me a shout.  I love to talk about Tupperware.

Cannoli Dip made easy

oh yummm 
I can see this being an awesome dessert this summer.
Having a big BBQ, with all kinds of finger foods, to me just screams that you need to have something "lighter" for dessert with a nice cup of coffee.  Not too sweet and definitely NOT bland.


I think this could be perfect for this "need".  
What do you think?

I am thinking this could end up being a staple this summer.
Yes you could serve in a waffle cone or cup or maybe even those little dessert pastry mini cups (can't for the life of me think of what they are called right now).   I can see all those boxes of cones that have bits and pieces in the bottom being used for this.  Or even graham crackers ... yes definitely a winner in my book.

Oh let me see if I have everything to make this today.

What do you think?
Is this something you could see yourself making this summer?

Mid June Brochure Specials by Tupperware

I really love the Tupperware FridgeSmart Containers, and not just because I am a consultant.
I have my fruit and veggies lasting so much longer than before, which means when I buy in bulk, I don't throw out my savings.  
If I purchase from my local grocery store, I still have the benefit of having those purchases last longer than just having them in the refrigerator.

As the video shows, your fruits and veggies are stored in your refrigerator to keep them "organized" and "fresher" longer.  And as luck would have it you can get not one set but two for the price of 1 set in this mid month brochure, ending July 8th on my Tupperware Site.  You can get both sets for yourself or share with your girlfriend or family member so you both can start saving money by not wasting your fruits and veggies.

These are only available for a short time, ends June 24th at midnight, so if you are interested in these, don't miss out.  I love the Beverage Set for the Summer.  the Large FridgeSmart Container is great for those "long" veggies.

Check out my Tupperware Web Site to purchase any of these sale items or anything in the Full line Catalog.  
Want to do a party, a book party or a Facebook Party?  Talk to me and we can get you set up so that maybe you can earn some free Tupperware too!

And if you want to do what I do ... let me know.  We can chat about all the benefits of being a Tupperware Consultant.  If you want to just join my team ... you can even do that right from my Tupperware Site too by clicking the "Join Us" tab on the left.

Trust yourself enough

This could be interesting, if we could just do it.

I know it really sounds like a simple thing to do, but in may cases it is one of the most difficult thing for you to do.

But I do know that when you have the enough faith in yourself, to trust in yourself, there really isn't anything you can't do.

Shall we jump?

Let's get STARTED

Just a little push to start your week.

A lot of us, me included, think that we are not "good enough" to succeed.  
We have to continually remind ourselves that we don't have to be "great" or even "good enough" ... we just have to get started.

Thanks Les Brown for the reminder.
Now all you reading this ...

You can thank me (and Les) later.

#Granted an Urban Fantasy by Michelle Merrill

I am keeping Big Brother happy with this disclosure. 
I received this product for free to facilitate my review, in exchange for my honest opinion. I will only highlight products that I feel will be of benefit to or enjoyed by my readers. For more information regarding product review, please refer to my media kit

When I began reading this book, I was thinking it would be like the old "I Love Jeannie" TV series reruns that I remember from my childhood. I mean it is about genies after all. But that really was what I thought and I was so very far from the reality of this book.

Yes one of the main characters and a few others are genies, but it is more about self discovery.   

First Brielle, a genie, learns about herself without magic and how much she believes magic, or lack there of, defines her.

Addie, her first assignment, learns how much she needs to believe, in friendship as well as wishes, when Brielle comes into her life and starts breaking down the walls around her heart.

Brielle, and all genies, only have 3 weeks to grant wishes to their charges.  Brielle has not, as the story begins, granted a wish and therefore has not received her magic yet.  

She desperately needs Addie to make a wish so that she can receive her magic, but to also free Addie from her self imposed loneliness.

When genies start disappearing before their weeks are up, aka die, the search is on to find the cause while also trying to grant Addie at least one wish before the end of the three week time frame and to receive her magic.

I enjoyed this book for a number of reasons.  But the fact that it is a "safe" book for younger readers without making it a "kids only" book, makes it a great choice for anyone.

If you believe or want to believe in magic and would like to read Granted, it is available at a discounted price of $2.99 from June 30th through July 7th.  Let me tell you , this is a great deal.    On June 30th, Future House Publishing Blog Readers can enter to win an autographed copy of Granted.  They will also be giving away some more printed copies on July 1st on Goodreads.

I hope you will check this one out at launch - yes it was a nice book for all ages ... the only requirement?  Keep an open mind, so you too can believe in magic!

Edit - the launch has been delayed - check out Granted on the new release date of June 30th.

I hope there will be an adjustment to the discounted price noted here as well as the giveaway.  I'll let you know what I hear as soon as I hear it!
