Ladies and Gentlemen! Start Your Ovens... its baking season!

Recently a customer asked me to track down a Tupperware Silicone Fluted Baking Pan that she needed for a simple cake recipe a friend had given her. The process reminded me that I should dust my silcone bakeware off and do some baking too. I baked these muffins and shared one with a neighbour who asked me to post the recipe.

Greta's Blueberry Muffins

I was lucky enough to get to know Greta, the woman who was head of food services at an exclusive, private club in Vancouver. Just before she retired, she was kind enough to share her recipe for the best blueberry muffins I have ever eaten.
I guess it pays to rave about someone's cooking!
This recipe makes 24 large muffins that freeze beautifully. They are great to have on hand for breakfast or make them into mini's for snacks after school.

Pictured are my freshly baked muffins, baked in the Tupperware Silicone Muffin Pans. These muffin pans make great muffins and are easy to clean - things that are important to me when I bake.

Greta's Blueberry Muffins

5 cups flour
2 cups wheat germ
1-1/2 cups sugar
2 Tbsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

3 eggs
1 liter buttermilk
1/2 cup oil

3 cups fresh or frozen blueberries

In large bowl, mix together dry ingredients. In separate bowl, whisk eggs; add buttermilk and oil. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix lightly just until moistened. Fold in blueberries. Scoop into Tupperware Silicone Muffin Pans or lightly oiled or paper lined muffin tins.

Bake in 375 degree oven for 20 - 25 minutes or until lightly browned on top.

Thanks Greta! Now we can all enjoy these muffins!

FridgeSmart Containers are a Necessity!

Just look at what I picked up in my basket at the local farmers market! I couldn't resist showing you what I do with it when I get home.

My 2 butter lettuces are rinsed and placed in a large FridgeSmart Container, where they will be refrigerated until I prepare a salad for dinner. You might notice the fresh broccoli in another FridgeSmart Container, and last but not least, those beautiful greens of Swiss Chard and Beets will occupy a third large FridgeSmart Container. Everything is ready to prepare, and will keep way better than if stored in a plastic bag.

And did you notice? I didn't need to pick up even 1 plastic bag at the market! Can you tell? I love my folding baskets and my Tupperware! They save me both time and money, and I have the freshest produce in town!

Record Breaker Month is Here!

Statistics show that September is actually the start of most people's year - that typically we are more productive between September and the end of the year, than during any other period in the year.

School is back in and the casual life of summer is over... even for those of us who don't have little children. And what I've noticed is, that many of us are looking to get organized, whether we need containers to transport a lunch, or just to house the produce in the fridge. And would you believe it? Some have even mentioned the words "Christmas shopping" already! And of course, Tupperware can help with Christmas baking, by saving us time, when we use the fabulous bowls and little gadgets, and save our creations, when we store them in the virtually air and liquid tight Tupperware containers.

September is a special month in the Tupperware world too. It is affectionately referred to as "Record Breaker Month". During the month of September, Tupperware Consultants are challenged to break their previous best September month of sales. To support us in the field, Tupperware offers awesome host exclusive gifts, as well as amazing consumer offers. So for you, it is truly the best time of year to host a party! You can get organized, and purchase those reusable containers, that will save you lots of money, and reduce what you send to the landfill. A win win situation. You can also start your holiday shopping with our brand new catalogue, and find some unique items you will love to have and to give! And Hosts, Tupperware love to give you FREE Tupperware products to thank you for hosting.

Give me a call or drop me an e-mail to fit Tupperware into your September!
