Yes Yes its the Mid April Brochure at Tupperware

I know I haven't been really active here (or really anywhere, except in front of a tax form) but I had to do another quick post to tell you that the Mid April Brochure is open TODAY on my Tupperware site!  
And there really are some great things in this one.

Some awesome things are on the short term piece as well. Personally I LOVE the Lunch it Containers to make your own Bento Box type meal on the go!  And you get 4, that's right 4 at this price!!

If you are into protein shakes the Quick Shake Container BOGO is perfect for you.  Its also great for mixing up eggs for scrambled eggs, or salad dressing and marinades.  OH OH and I forgot, salad in a jar is so much safer this way ... works awesome!

I already have a few of these babies or I would be grabbing this one - its a steal!












The Power Chef Premium System is a hostess bonus this month, but you can also get it from the regular catalog, if you are not interested in being a host.  However, if you are thinking about it, we can do it as a book/FB party if you want.  We just need to have some items entered as if they went to a party.  So if you are interested ... message me and we can chat.
Oh and the mega bowl collection .. yeah that's ONLY for a hostess, but it really is da bomb for Summer dining.

The items below are available all month (you know until the next mid month brochure happens) but you really want to think about Summer and Cinco De Mayo that will be coming soon, sooner than we think.  These are great for Summer and all kinds of Celebrations.



The Goody Box Set it pretty sweet, especially if you want something for a group lunch at the park.  
A few of these and you could easily transport your family picnic in a picnic basket or  cooler and everyone could have their own without leaving any "extras" behind or having a lot of trash to find a place to dispose of.  
As easy as it goes to the park, it will come home and then you can pop it into the dishwasher ready for the next trip.

Oh and those ice cube trays .....




These things are the bomb!
I have some just to make coffee cubes for iced coffee this summer.  Or leftover tea for iced tea this coming season.
How about freezing some fresh fruit for flavored water bottles?  Might just help with your water intake too.

I also have used them for freezing fresh herbs before they go bad ... and then I can just pop out 1 or 2 without having to figure out what to do with the rest.  And with the seal top, I don't need to worry about the transfer of flavors or "smells".


You can even make your own baby food (the power chef and smart steamer is great for that) and then you can freeze it in your tray and have fresh food for you precious little one and know exactly what you are feeding them.  No more jars for them.

Like I said, there are so many great things in this mid month brochure.  So it these have sparked you interest, check out my Tupperware Site for these and of course the regular Catalog.

It's almost Party Time ... are you ready?

Oh my gosh, I can't believe I've been gone for so long ....
Tax season is / has been especially bad this year, it's been a killer  year.  
Sorry for being MIA ... 
BUT its almost PARTY time.  
Are you ready?


If you had the Tupperware Serving Center you would have a good start.

I love some of the great ideas for using this piece.
Taco Bar
Sundae Bar
Cupcake Bar
Salad Bar
Fondue Bar
Make your own Snowman Bar


I really love this piece.
So many uses for this baby.

I've even seen folks use it for non-food things 
Craft Center
Office Supply Center
I bet you could even have a Lego Center

I have more than 1 in my house, but only use it for food items.  I know I need to "break out of my shell".

I do love that you can use the "lid" as either a tray for things like crackers or breads or put some ice in it to keep your shrimp bowl cool.

One of the great things about this one ... YOU can pick it up on my Tupperware Site OR you can Join My Team this month (ends April 28th) right from my site and then you can get this baby for just $5! 

That's right, in addition to all the great things you get in your kit, you could add this versatile piece for just an additional $5.

Can't wait to be able to share with you all the great things for the upcoming Tupperware Birthday Month (May) and even the Summer Catalog!

If there is something that you are looking for, message me or check out the online product catalog on my site because the new catalog comes out and that thing you were looking to get is gone.

Andrea Pearson's Birthday SALE

I really needed to share this with you.
Many of you love to read.
Some love to read books that are filled with fantasy and action and tension/nail-biter scenes that are "safe to read" no matter who is around.... Andrea's books fit that bill.  
I like that anyone can read them because there is no sex/swearing but plenty of thought was put into these books to make them interesting.



To celebrate my author friend's birthday today, with her own celebration in mind, she's got a limited-edition box set on sale that contains 11 of her award-winning and bestselling urban fantasy novels for only $2.99!! Regularly priced at $31.99! 

That's right, you can have all 11 of her novels at a huge savings!  
Come check it out! 

This would be an awesome gift for those YA readers that you know.  You could get for yourself (you know you deserve a gift right?) or for someones upcoming birthday or Easter.  No one needs to know that you got it at a fabulous price!

It is available on Amazon with this link, so I'm not sure how long the price will be this good, so don't be dilly dallying.  I know it is available right now at that price, but with Amazon, you never know.

Oh and you don't have to take my word for it.  These series have had over 100,000 downloads so you know its not just me saying I've read them all.

Let's make her number 1 for her birthday ... now THAT would be an outstanding present for an author, don't you think?

YES its a New Mid Month Brochure from Tupperware!

It's a new mid month Tupperware brochure so of course I need to share what is happening this month for the up coming holiday ...


Now I really love these pieces.  So much so I will be grabbing a few more for myself.
The Art of Spring Lunch set is great BUT if you think you want it GRAB IT NOW!  We already know that it could be on short availability .. so don't wait or you could end up with a substitution.

And if you are a snack bar person .. how about making ones that are more "natural" and with less fat or sugar by getting the snack bar maker.  And the snack bar keeper is a great addition for more than just your home made snack bars.  I understand from my manager that they are great for taking PB crackers to work or school without worry of them getting crushed!


For the upcoming Easter Holiday you want to stock up now on these cuties.  I love the Jel-ette Molds for making personal mousses but fruit filled jello would be good too, among other things.

And since this is Regions week ... here are some awesome "deals" you can grab starting today and ending on March 17th!  But it appears, unless they change it, that these great deals need to be ordered by me directly and not just from my website.  I will do a paypal option for payment on this week.  If you just want the over all regions week (the last picture in the list) or anything else from the website, you can order right from here until March 29th, 







The other option for Regions week 
that is available on the website
and can be ordered on this party.


That are available from my Tupperware Site

Quick Easy Breakfast Sandwich

I know my hubby likes those fast food breakfast sandwiches when he didn't have time for breakfast before running out the door in the morning.  I know not a great thing but you just have to know when to pick your battles .. 
This is one way to "easily" pick the right battles, or should I say not pick that battle.

I can make these and stick a few in the freezer for those .. I'm late moments.




Yield: 2

Ingredients

  • 2 English muffins
  • ¾ cup liquid egg whites
  • 2 slices desired cheese
  • 2 pieces desired breakfast meat (Canadian bacon, sausage, bacon)

Instructions
  1. Cut muffins in half and toast them in toaster, or at 350° F for 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
  2. Pour egg whites into Microwave Breakfast Maker and microwave at 70% power 3–4 minutes or until egg white is cooked through. (If using two Microwave Breakfast Makers at once, cook four minutes.)
  3. Allow both muffin(s) and egg whites to cool.
  4. Cut one egg white in half and place on half of English muffin.
  5. Add cheese and meat, then top with remaining muffin half. Repeat for each sandwich.
  6. Place in Freeze It™ container until needed (up to one month).

Reheating Instructions
  1. Place sandwiches in Microwave Breakfast Maker and cover.
  2. Microwave on high power two minutes, flip and microwave on high power one minute longer.
  3. Remove sandwiches from Microwave Breakfast Maker to towel to absorb any excess moisture. 
  4. Serve immediately.
I am going to try making a few with the English Muffins as noted here and then a few with some biscuits and see if he likes those better.  It can be our "test case" for the recipe and the Tupperware pieces.  I love making him the guinea pig without him knowing.  

He did like them when I made them with whole eggs last year .. so now I can see if egg white sandwiches will work.

Yield: 4
Serving Size: 1 cup

Ingredients
  • 4 cups frozen blueberries
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice

Crumble Topping
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, melted
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup brown sugar

Happy Sunday


Some days you just have to stop and be thankful for the day.
You need to be thankful for who you are.  
And where you are in relation to what you want to accomplish.



But you need to recognize that sometimes, no matter how good you believe you are, people may see you differently than you see yourself .. 



Think about it.
Are people seeing you how you believe you are?  
If not, why not? 
Could this be the possible reason?

Let's make sure that who we think we are is what we are projecting.

Mediterranean Salmon the Tupperware way

Do you like Salmon?
Do you think that you can't make Salmon at home?
Is it a daunting recipe ingredient for you?

Check this one out.  It won't be daunting anymore.




Yield: 4

Ingredients
  • 1 tsp. plus 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup chopped zucchini
  • ½ cup chopped eggplant
  • ¼ cup golden raisins (optional)
  • 2 tsp. chopped fresh rosemary
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • ¼ tsp. coarse kosher salt
  • 4 (4 oz.) salmon fillets, skin-on

Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, toss together 1 tsp. of the olive oil, cherry tomatoes, zucchini, eggplant and raisins until well coated.
  2. Transfer vegetables into the base of the MicroPro™ Grill.
  3. Microwave on high power 5 minutes with the lid in the grill position.
  4. Remove from microwave; transfer vegetables into a serving bowl. 
  5. Fold in rosemary and salt; set aside.
  6. Brush salmon on all sides with remaining olive oil. 
  7. Place 2 salmon fillets in MicroPro™ Grill, skin side up, with lid in the grill position. 
  8. Microwave on high power 4 minutes. 
  9. Remove salmon, sprinkle with coarse kosher salt to taste.
  10. Repeat with remaining salmon fillets. 
  11. Serve warm with vegetables.

I am still testing out my MicroPro Grill.  It is that new to me.  
But so far I am liking it.  
I can use it to actually grill in the microwave but can also put the lid in the casserole position and make some pretty interesting desserts and then decide if I want to drop the lid to the grill position to crisp up the top.  

I'm going to be doing a cobbler very soon, that I will be sharing the recipe for, so stay tuned.

Lemon Chiffon the easy way

I was thinking that I wanted to make this but didn't have the Jel-ring by Tupperware.  I know how can I as a Tupperware consultant not have a Jel-ring.  But alas I don't.  
But what I do have are the Jel-ettes that were released in the past year.  I am going to try this one in those jel-ettes so that I can easily take them to work.  I may unmold this Lemon Chiffon one at a time and cut it in half for two separate servings .. depending on how dense this one works out to be.




Yield: 16
Serving Size: 1 slice



Ingredients

  1. 2 cups water
  2. 3 oz. box lemon flavored gelatin
  3. 8 oz. container whipped topping (or 2 cups heavy cream and ¼ cup powdered sugar)

Instructions

  1. Heat one cup water in 2-cup Micro Pitcher for 2 minutes or until boiling.
  2. Stir in gelatin until dissolved.
  3. Stir in remaining water and place in refrigerator until no longer warm. About 30–60 minutes.
  4. If using heavy cream, pour cream and powdered sugar into base of Power Chef™ System fitted with paddle whip accessory. 
  5. Cover and pull cord until whipped cream forms, about 60 seconds. 
  6. Pour into medium bowl.
  7. Slowly pour cooled gelatin into whipped topping or whipped cream and stir until combined. Pour into Jel-Ring® Mold and refrigerate until set (approximately 4–6 hours or overnight).

The way they are

This could go over many people's heads.
It could cause a lot of folks to be "mad" at me and possibly unfriend me.
I know but it is a chance I need to take.

There is too much hate going around.
Too much fear mongering.
When all we see and say are that things are "bad" or "evil" or "wrong", perhaps those things are not whats' wrong....

Think about this one.



Yes there is evil around.
Yes there are bad things happening.
Yes there are those who wish to do us harm.
Yes there are those who are "different" .. 

But not everyone or every thing is bad or evil.  Just because something is different doesn't make it different in a bad way.

We need to stop looking at things with a BROAD scope and really start looking at things as they really are.  

Start looking at PEOPLE and THINGS they way they truly are .. not with that broad brush that hurts all of us.

Going for what you want


Tell me what do you think?
Can you see it?



Isn't it time we stop being afraid and start working TOWARDS what we want .. you know that thing that you can ALMOST see. But because of FEAR it continues to be just out of reach?

Let's move PAST the fear and work towards getting what we want.

Let's enjoy the fruits of our work when we walk past that which is holding us back.  

Time to say bye bye to FEAR.

Are you with me?

Sausage, Peppers and Onions with a twist

I know my hubby would like this one.
He is definitely a Sausage, Peppers and Onion kind of guy.  
How about you?





Yield: 4

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. Italian Sausage Links, cut into pieces
  • 2 green bell peppers, seeded and chopped
  • 1 yellow onion, peeled and chopped
  • ½ cup beer
  • ½ cup chicken stock
  • 2 tbsp. grainy mustard
  • 2 tbsp. corn starch
  • ½ tsp. kosher salt

Instructions:

  1. In the base of the Microwave Pressure Cooker place sausage, peppers, and onion.
  2. In a medium bowl (Thatsa bowl is perfect) stir together beer, stock, mustard, corn starch, and salt. 
  3. Pour over sausage and peppers, stir to combine.
  4. Secure cover onto base. Microwave on high power 10 minutes. 
  5. Remove from microwave. Let stand 10 minutes or until pressure indicator valve is in the down position.
  6. Serve with rice, pasta, potatoes, creamy polenta, or on a bun.
Personally I would have done a quick brown of the sausage, before cutting into pieces and putting into pressure cooker.  It would have given a better presentation and probably added an additional depth of flavor to the "sauce".  But you can do as directed above or add that browning step ... its' your kitchen you have the control.

Hope you enjoy this one.
Let me know if you try it and what you think.

If you need any of the Tupperware pieces mentioned, hop on over to my Tupperware Site and you could be making this one very very soon!

Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening for Every Day People

Teeth Whitening Cost


I don’t know about you, but I love looking at pictures of models and actors and seeing their beautiful smiles.  I really do envy them their beautiful white teeth.  Ok yes, if we are going to be honest here, that is just one of the things I envy.  
But to be honest, I don’t have the money to have caps put on all my teeth and professional teeth whitening is equally expensive, so when I was asked if I wanted to test out a tooth whitening product from Smile Br!lliant, I was all for it.

And then to make it an even better or sweeter deal, my daughter and I got to try this product together!  We got to check it out and see if there was any difference between “older teeth” with 4 crowns, that would be mine and “younger teeth” that had also been through quite a few years of orthodontic work, that was Jenn’s
Now this product is not for young children who's teeth are still developing, I believe they say for no one under 18, but since neither of us fall under that criteria, we were both good to go.

What I really liked about this product was that each whitening kit is made to order.  You make your impressions so that your trays are made for you and your teeth, not a “one size fits all” set of trays.  Doing your impressions was really very easy.

As you can see from the picture, you receive 3 sets of impression materials, just in case you do make a mistake, but seriously the hardest part was making sure that you mix the two impression materials (1 black/gray (catalyst) labeled and 1 blue (base) labeled container into a consistent mix. And even that wasn't very difficult, especially if you have ever played with clay or play doh.  
It’s then very easy to take your impression by putting the materials into the dark blue trays and placing they up and around your teeth. Once completed you send the forms back to Smile Brilliant labs to make your personal whitening trays in a prepaid envelop.


When our trays came back, the first thing that came to mind when I saw them, after I saw how “interesting” our bite and teeth sizes where, was that they reminded me of what I thought those invisible braces look like.  Because they are made for your teeth, they are very comfortable to wear.  

As you can see, your teeth fit into their own place in the tray like a second skin.  Each tooth has it’s own “sleeve” so to speak covering both the front and back of the tooth.
I was very happy that I didn’t feel like I had a huge piece of plastic on my top and bottom teeth.  I could close my mouth completely without wanting to gag.




Doing your whitening is a breeze.  With the custom-made trays, there was no problem with placement of the whitening materials like with those whitening strips.  Every time you do the whitening, the gel comes in contact with your teeth completely, no gaps, no tooth too big or too small.  Even those “paint on” style whitening products always seemed to leave too much room for error, or missing application spots.

The whitening gel and the desensitizing gel come in syringe type containers that make it a snap to set up each time.  We found that the whitening gel syringe was firmer than the desensitizing gel so you needed to be more careful pushing the plunger on the desensitizing gel syringe so that you didn’t get too much in each tray.  We found that there was enough material in each syringe so we could use each syringe 3 times, just remember to keep the tiny "cap" after you open it the first time to keep the contents fresh. 

Before we started we took “before” pictures.  I have to say I was really shocked and couldn’t believe just how “yellow” and “off color” our teeth looked.


We have well water, very hard well water so we don’t have any of the benefits of city water, which means that if fluoride assists in any way other than cavity prevention, we didn’t get those benefits.
The instructions are easy to understand and the actual process again was easy.  The only thing that wasn’t spelled out, or at least we didn’t see, was how often to do the whitening so we did not do our whitening every day as we could/should have.
Even with this miss-step, we were very happy with our results. 



If you are looking for something to brighten your smile or just make you feel like you have the whitest teeth that you could have, Smile Br!lliant is an affordable solution for you.   Have I gotten you thinking about whitening your own teeth?  Here are some things to know before you whiten.

But you don't have to just take my word for it.  Check out some others who have tried and loved Smile Br!lliant 

And someone, yes it could be you, will be lucky enough to be able to try this tooth whitening system very soon.  
You see, Smile Br!lliant has graciously offered to sponsor a giveaway prize for one of my readers.  
You can enter to win your own system at   www.smilebrilliant.com/g/katsdaily

Although not everyone can be the winner of this giveaway, Smile Br!lliant is going to make it even more affordable for you to try this product.  
When you go to Smile Brilliant to order your system, use the code “katsdaily5” and they will give you a 5% discount on your purchase.   
Which will make it even more affordable!
Pretty sweet right?

I know I am really happy with my results, which look even better than the pictures (I found it much more difficult to take the pictures than I expected).  My Jenn is too, and will probably be looking to get more product to make sure that her teeth continue to shine. 

Still thinking about it? Check out this video by Danielle Mansutti from last year ... yes it really is still this good!






Don't want to wait?  Grab your own today here.  
And don't forget your 5% discount!
I am betting you won't be disappointed .. I know we aren't.

It's February 2nd and you KNOW what that means plus more

Yes it is the beginning of February - I can't believe it is the start of the second month of 2017.  I'm having a hard time believing that January is already over ... where did it go?

Today is the day that little "Phil" comes out of his hibernation spot to tell us whether there will be 6 more weeks of winter or not. 

Unfortunately I believe that is exactly what he will tell us, although I would be ok with it IF we only had the cold without ice and only a limited amount of the white stuff.  I really don't want to see the 17 inches (or more) that got dumped on us at one time last year.





But the beginning of February brings another month of goals (and incentives) for my LimeLight by Alcone business.

I would LOVE to have earned the LBB (Little Black Box) to keep my makeup in by the end of February.  
It would make it so much easier to take everything with me to do parties/makeovers because everything would be 1 one place.  
We haven't seen it "in person" yet, but it does look like it would hold almost everything needed.

But even earning the two new lip gloss colors would be great.  I mean I just started in December and I already promoted during January I am over the moon.  Oh did I just date myself there?  Does anyone say "over the moon" anymore?

Have you checked out LimeLight by Alcone?  
Do you know what it really is?
This is an awesome company, that has been around since the 1950s when it was providing makeup and skincare to the theater industry. Until 2 years ago, the only ones who could get these products were professional makeup artists and those in the movies, television and theater.  





Today we can get the same great products, because LimeLight by Alcone realized that we too were demanding great makeup and skincare.  
Our makeup is a very highly pigmented makeup, so you can use less and still get an awesome finished look.  It is leaping bunny certified (some products are awaiting certification) for which we are very proud.

Our skincare is natural, cruelty free and gives everyone a wonderful "canvas" to work with.  I have seen some other guides share pictures of some of their customers who have had unbelievable results.  I hope to be able to share some of my customers results soon.  I know my skin is so much clearer and brighter with less wrinkles, and the "bags" under my eyes are significantly decreased. I can't wait to be able to say that they are gone ...

Just to give you an idea of why we love our products and why they are safe for most consumers ... 


If you are interested in any makeup or skin care products, I hope you will stop by my LimeLight by Alcone page and pick up some of our great products.  
If you have any question, please just give me a shout.  If I don't have an answer at my fingertips, I will get it for you.

Or if you really want to go for gusto and join in our great group of woman (and men), talk to me and I will get you set up
(or you can sign up from my page) then you too can be on the cutting edge of this wonderful product line.  
I know I am really glad I took the leap of faith.  It is a wonderful company to work for.

Do I have your attention??  
There are so many things that you can do with this Micro Grill in your Microwave!  I really like mine and I have only started to "play" with it.

Happy Chinese New Year

I just want to share a very Happy New Year with my friends who are celebrating the Chinese New Year.




Just as January 1st has special meaning and celebrated each year, the Chinese New Year has special meanings and is celebrated globally as well. Unlike the January 1st New Years, Chinese New Years celebration goes on for an extended period of time.

This year it goes on until Feb 11th ending with the Lantern Festival.

Each new year brings a new symbol, this year is the Year of the Rooster. But there are actually 5 different types of Roosters, Fire, Wood, Earth, Gold and Water, each with their own identifying characteristics.

This year is the Year of the Fire Rooster.

Fire Roosters are known for being trustworthy, punctual and responsible (especially at work).

On the whole, Roosters are active, amusing, popular, healthy, outspoken, honest, loyal, talkative and charming.

They are also known to enjoy the spotlight - but can be vain and boastful, so we must carefully when we chose our words.

I am a Rooster, a Fire Rooster.
How about you?
Do you know what your Chinese birth year was?

Here is a chart to help you figure it out.


Whatever Animal Sign you are in the Chinese Zodiac .. 
I wish you much luck, love and happiness in this year of the Rooster.

Medical Romance Box Set Review

I had received Medical Romance, Her Doctor Three Book Box Set by Grace Devon, as a gift to "broaden" my reading authors, as some thought I was "stuck in a rut".  I thought it might be an interesting read because I like to read almost all genres and honestly hadn't read much in the romance genre in awhile.




Overall this is a good 3 short story book collection with common themes and characters.

Medical Romance box set
You quickly meet up with the characters in book 1, Her Chief Resident that continue into books 2 and 3.  
You can read each of the books in this series without having read the other books, but they do have a nice flow together and you see how the characters have grown/changed from book to book, although each book has its own character focus.

There were some spelling and grammar errors in each of the books in the set and at times, and at times I wondered if it had originally been written with the characters in "different sexes" as some pronouns were "mixed" .. his for her, he for she, I was able to keep with the story flow. Perhaps it needed a second beta read (I am assuming there was one) or a more diligent editing group.

All of this aside, it was a good quick enjoyable read. I was able to overlook these blips and read these books as it was meant to be read. It also made me realize that doctors go through a lot more than just seeing patients and that they really are "people" with real emotions.  I know this is easy to overlook when you are seeing them professionally (I know as this past year was full of visits to different doctors/specialists) unless you are also friends with or have family members in the medical field.

Because it was a collection of short stories, there were some very quick story line movement from start to finish that could have been flushed out more had they been intended as individual novels instead of short stories, yes you can get each separately as shown above


With this "change" in showing the lives and events of the doctors and patients of Baily Mills Hospital, it could have been made into a great read, not just a good read with just a little more of those details.

I would recommend this (or these individually) to most readers.  If you are a lover of the romance genre or an "older" young adult reader, as there is some sexual content, this would be a good quick read for your kindle.
