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


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

  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.

Blueberry Crumble

oh now this is looking wonderful

Yield: 4
Serving Size: 1 cup

  • 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
  • ¾ cup rolled oats
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

  1. In a medium bowl, stir together berries, flour, sugar and lemon juice. Pour into base of MicroPro Grill, set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together crumble ingredients. 
  3. Once combined, sprinkle over top of berries.
  4. Place cover in casserole position and microwave on high power 15 minutes. 
  5. Let cool for 5 minutes to thicken slightly. 
  6. Serve warm.

Oh yes this does look like a great idea for a quick and easy dessert. You could serve it over ice cream or frozen yogurt or by itself.

I know this is blueberry, but I bet you could also switch up the frozen fruit if blueberries aren't your thing, or to just try something different.  I have a mixed berry frozen fruit combo I am going to try this recipe with.  yummm can't wait.

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

  • 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

  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


  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)


  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.
