Fresh Recipe: Dill Pickle Dip

Image result for Tupperware dill pickle dip

I have always loved the simple yet yummy dill pickle! Growing up we used to make them from the kirby cucumbers grown in one of the family gardens.  As I got older I learned some their health benefits. They are full of antioxidients, full of vitamins and minerals, improves digestion, can help control diabetes, are said to reduce ulcers, they are even good for hangovers!  Did you know? Cleopatra claimed pickles made her beautiful!?!!

My youngest mini eats them like they are going out of style so when this recipe was introduced to me at a Tupperware event I knew I had to make it again.   Apparently it is THE DIP to make in Canada and once I tried it I knew why.  I hope you love this Dill Pickle Dip as much as I do.  Please share on!

Dill Pickle Dip
1/4 cup pickle juice
8 oz softened cream cheese
1 cup sour cream
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 dill pickles, quartered

Insert the blade attachment into the PowerChef. Add pickle juce, cream cheese and sour cream.

Mince 2 garlic cloves (or use to taste) in the Chop N Prep Chef or use the Garlic Wonder Gadget. Add pickles and process until desired consistency is reached.  Serve in a Chip N’ Dip or Serving Center Set.

Enjoy!!

Fresh Recipe: Basic Muffin Mix

Basic Muffin Mix

Growing up my mom would often make muffins.  Not from the bag, from scratch.  We’d have oatmeal, bran, chocolate chip, fruit, strudel . . . you name it.   As I matured and started my own family the desire to make my own muffins for my girls began –  but what recipe???  I looked at different recipe books, searched online and was a little overwhelmed by the number of different ones out there.  So I went back to mom and she shared this amazing secret –  she always used this basic muffin mix and just added to it.  Let me tell you, it changed everything and I am super excited to share it with you!

Basic Muffin Mix

1 cup Self Rising Flour
1/4 cup Sugar
1 Egg, beaten
1/2 cup Milk
1/4 cup Vegetable Oil
1/2 tsp Vanilla

Stir dry ingredients together. (If adding chocolate chips or blueberries, stir into dry ingredients)

Mix Wet ingredients together and stir into dry, until just moistened.

Pour into muffin cups.  Bake @ 400 degrees F for about 12-15 mins.

Additions: (this is where the fun begins!)
1/4 cup Mini Chocolate Chips
1/2 cup Blueberries, Strawberries, etc
2 Tbs Amaretto and 1/4 cup toasted chopped Almonds
1/4 cup Cocoa Powder and 1/4 cup Mini Chocolate Chips

**the sky is really the limit**

Of course, my Fresh Product Pick for my measuring cups to my mixing bowl is Tupperware and you can get yours here!

Have fun and comment which additions you like best!

Fresh Recipe: Hot Cheese Puffs

I love to entertain and during the holidays that can make things a little chaotic juggling the kids, activities, family etc.  This family recipe of Hot Cheese Puffs is one that I can prep ahead of time and freeze.  So all I need to do is throw in the oven and enjoy.

Change it up by stuffing them with olives or jalapeños for a fun twist.

Hot Cheese Puffs

1/2 c butter
2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
1 c flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp paprika

Cream butter and cheese. ((grate the cheese fresh from a block using Tupperware’s GrateMaster for the perfect consistency and less preservatives.)) Add remaining ingredients. Roll into pecan-sized balls. May be frozen or baked immediately at 350 for 12-15 mins.
