Key Lime Pie

I'm not crazy about traditional key lime pie.  It's too tart for my liking and it's not my favorite consistency.  Good news for people like me:  The Gourmet Cupboard's key lime pie is much fluffier with a cream cheese and cool whip base.  It's simple- no cooking involved- and it's so yummy!  I bet it would make a wonderful start for one of the cool whip fruit salad recipes too...I'll have to try that sometime soon!  Do you like key lime pie?

Homemade Chili

Or should I say Semi-Homemade.  Last week I made chili using a mix from The Gourmet Cupboard. It reminded me of Josh's grandfather's homemade chili recipe...a true Texas chili without beans.  It was delicious and I hope to make it again using a cornbread mix to go with it.
Chili is such a regional recipe.  In Texas, it can't really be considered chili if it contains beans. A few years back, Josh and I visited Cincinnati and when the locals discovered we were from out of state they insisted that we must try their chili.  Everywhere we went, we saw advertising for"delicious chili," so of course we immediately found a restaurant and ordered a bowl.  I was shocked to see that it was served over spaghetti noodles!  In addition you could order onions, cheese, etc piled on top.  Very interesting and different than what we were used to!  How do you prefer your chili?  I would love to hear how your region enjoys the dish!
In the meantime, check out TGC's version along with all the other tasty mixes we offer.  The choices really do make dinner simple and quick!

A New Adventure

Hello Readers~
 I wanted to let you know all about my new business.  I have signed up to be a distributor for The Gourmet Cupboard.  Some of you may be wondering- What is The Gourmet Cupboard?  Well, we sell over 200 different mixes like soups and meals to feed your entire family.  Available are dips, wonderful desserts including many sugar free, cookies and bars, beverage mixes and much more!  Each one is handmade using only the finest gourmet ingredients at just the right proportions.  Each mix includes all of the dry ingredients; you simply add a few additional ingredients (sour cream, cream cheese, water, etc).  The products are all individually handmade in southeast Texas and most contain no preservatives, msg, or chemicals.

          Don’t cook?  All of the mixes are really simple to make!  Anyone can cook delicious foods with the help of The Gourmet Cupboard!! 
On a diet?  You can make many of the mixes using low fat ingredients.
On a budget?  Our mixes are very reasonably priced.  Where else can you spend around $5 and literally feed your entire family? 
          If you would like to host a party, I would love to set up an online party for those of you out of town or an in-home party for those of you nearby (Western Montana).  I’m flexible to help arrange the type of event that earns you the most free products!  By hosting either type of party, you would earn 15% of the total amount sold in free products of your choice (for all parties $100 or more).  
          Our mixes are great for giving as gifts, to have on hand when company drops by, or just for serving to yourself and your family.  They have a shelf life of 6 months to 1 year. 

          Contact me if you would be interested in having a party.  Here is a link to my website.  You may email me using the link on the right hand side of this page.  Many thanks to my friends that have already signed up to host a party- you won’t be disappointed!  Please feel free to purchase mixes directly from my website as well.  I think you will love the selection and ease that The Gourmet Cupboard provides!
