Day 2 of the Cooking Cottage started bright and early with breakfast, coffee, and professional blowouts (more on that in a second).

Specifically, my morning started with Starbucks coffee and seasonal favors of Bailey’s creamers: Pumpkin Spice, Red Velvet Cupcake, and White Chocolate Peppermint Bark.

The seasonal flavors sounded so delicious, I actually had a little trouble deciding which one to try first. I eventually picked the Red Velvet Cupcake, which was awesome””I definitely tasted the cupcake flavor in there!

While breakfast was going on, Bailey’s provided professional blowouts from local stylists for all of the editors.

Fancy, right? What a nice way to start the day!

A little while later, Sigrid Benedetti, a professional pastry chef, demonstrated how to make three delicious baked goods using the seasonal creamers from Bailey’s.

Sigrid made Pumpkin Spice Cookies, Red Velvet Brownie Whoopie Pies, and White Chocolate Peppermint and Macadamia Nut Tartlets. Holy yum!

How pretty are the tartlets? They would be perfect for the holidays!

After the Bailey’s demonstration, Becky Grassi with Tupperware gave a fantastic cooking presentation. Honestly, I didn’t think I’d be so excited about Tupperware, but now I want all of their products!

Beccy showed us how to make five recipes in just 45 minutes using a few different Tupperware products. It was pretty incredible to watch and, again, I’m surprised how much I enjoyed it! I didn’t realize how much I liked Tupperware until today!

The first product that we had a chance to try firsthand was the PowerChef System, which is basically a food processor minus the electricity.

We used it to make smoothies using fresh and frozen fruit and a little bit of apple juice.

We just pulled the cord several times to pulverize and blend the fruit.

Fresh fruit smoothie in no time!

You can also make guacamole in this baby””just throw in all of the ingredients and pull the cord! Fresh guac without the mess!

I also loved Becky’s idea of making chopped salads with it. She suggested layering chopped veggies, olives, cheese, etc. on the bottom of a Tupperware container and then layering mixed greens on top for an easy, transportable salad that won’t get soggy. Genius.

The other product that I really loved (and plan to buy) is the SmartSteamer, which is a two-tiered cooking system that lets you steam multiple foods at once. For example, Becky made steamed chicken with a pesto sauce, red bell peppers, and green beans in 12 minutes in the microwave. Seriously, she cooked an entire meal in minutes! She just put everything in the SmartSteamer and then nuked it. Dinner done!

Side note and a little more love for Tupperware”¦

During Sigrid’s baking demonstration with the Bailey’s creamers, she tested out the mini food processor from the PowerChef System to grind up some macadamia nuts for one of the recipes.

Maybe Sigrid was skeptical of its abilities, but she was so surprised and excited about how well it worked!

I love her expression!

The little chopper worked great and ground the nuts with just a few pulls of the cord!

After the cooking demonstration, it was time for lunch, which included recipes made using Tupperware products.

I love that the salads were served in Healthy Salad on the Go Sets!

It was a beautiful day, so we all headed outside for a picnic by the pool.

I ended up combing chicken breast, guacamole, and Greek salad for an epic lunch. It was so tasty!

  1. Cooking Cottage looks like a great time! I haven’t bought Tupperware in quite a while, but it looks like I need to change that now that I see those cool new products.
    My favorite flavor coffee creamer is Brown Sugar Maple Latte. I hope to see it in the stores soon. Enjoy your trip, Tina!

  2. Haha, I love y’alls expressions as Sigrid is making the tarts: “We are going to knock this chick down if she doesn’t let us taste these goodies soon!”

    My mom used to rock the Tupperware parties back in the day. Classic.

    Normally I put boring old milk in my coffee, but I love just the regular Bailey’s flavored creamer when I want something a little special in my coffee. Double classic.

  3. I knew I was a real adult when I started getting excited about Tupperware! I’ve wanted to get a food processor but didn’t want to deal with the mess, the Tupperware one seems to have solved my problem. I also love the idea of a healthy salad to go, that would be so helpful at work, I always forget silverware!

  4. I’m so jelly. Like this is awesome! Getting your hair done in the morning? Sounds so wonderfully amazingggg! Red velvet cake creamer? Whattttt? So yum
    Can i like please have those tupperware products. Must go check these out. Are they online?

  5. its weird how much I like tupperware and containers these days, I think its because I pack my lunch so much! Either that or I am just boring! LOL

  6. You had me at coffee and blowouts. I love the International Delight Almond Joy creamer. So. Good. My second fav is their caramel macchiato but they don’t sell it in the 32 oz bottles where I shop. Looking forward to reading more about your awesome trip!

  7. Did you confirm with the Tupperware folks that their products are BPA free? I’d be leery about using them if they aren’t, and I certainly wouldn’t put them in the microwave!

  8. Total tupperware nerd right here. I seriously have a collection of all kinds of sizes and shapes for different meals. Somedays I take 8 different tupperwares to work (breakfast, lunch and snacks) But I did not know there were so many tupperware gadgets! Gotta get on that

  9. Ok, I must be late to the game – I never thought about baking one giant cookie and then cutting it up! Usually I get so bored between sheets. Am so trying this for the next bake sale.

  10. That kitchen is amazing!!! I would love to try that powerchef system, do you think it would work with frozen fruit? Or is it more for soft ingredients?

  11. I love the new vanilla heat creamer by international delight.
    Also, Thanks to your blog i tried the variety pack of angry orchard. yummy!

  12. The tupperware looks awesome- sure has come a long way!! Am I the only one wondering about that raw chicken though? Was it cooked in the microwave? I’d love to know more about how that works!!

  13. I grew up with tupperware and I remember going to parties when I was younger with my mom. They’re great!

    And I LOVE coffee creamer. Bailey’s is actual my favorite and I’m even more excited now that you posted a picture of the Pumpkin Spice one! Irish cream is my absolute favorite, mixed with hazelnut coffee… awesomeness!

  14. Tina: Is the house that the event is being held at available for rent to individuals? I tried searching online for Cooking Cottage, and I didn’t find any results. If it is, please share the link or contact info.

  15. I am so excited about that red velvet cupcake creamer flavor! I just recently discovered the Bailey’s flavors and I’m currently obsessed with the ‘vanilla brown sugar’.
    My vegetable steamer is probably my favorite thing in my kitchen, but I had no idea Tupperware made one, and the fact that you can make chicken in it is awesome!!

  16. I now need Tupperware! I didn’t realize how cool they had gotten. I love the salad kit bowl thing. I see a purchase in my future!

  17. I cant remember but are Tupperware products guarantied, my concern with the powerchef system would be the cord. we had a salad spinner and after awhile the cord broke. also those Healthy Salad on the Go Sets are great I need to get one!

    1. @jen: I must say to im happy that the Healthy Salad on the Go Set holds 6 1/3 cups the products in the stores that are similar only hold a small amount and when I eat salad I like a huge salad as I tend to add a lot of different veggies!
