5 Tips from Betty Crocker

Hopefully you are all enjoying summer.  With the kids back in school, you moms may be feeling a little different about summer.  Betty Crocker & Erica Domesek from P.S.-I made this, would like to offer you several tips to making the rest of summer even greater!
Tip #1:  Pie Lovin'

Try Mini S'mores Hand Pies which has everything great about a s'mores in one.  It has crunchy graham cracker, melted chocolate, gooey marshmallows all wrapped in a pie pocket for easy eating.

Repurpose old pie pans by making them into multi-wick candles.  Set short wicks in a pie dish & pour candle wax into the dish.  You can add your own scents and colors to make the candle new and unique to you.

Tip #2:  Spice It Up

Try fresh Sriracha Refrigerator Pickles has a hot, Thai inspired sauce that spices up the average refrigerator pickle.  The best part is there is no canning needed!

Use bold, colorful beaded trim and ribbons to make a great summer inspired necklace for yourself or someone special.

Tip #3:  Move Over, Meat

Try a vegetarian alternative to meat like the Monster Veggie Burger.  It is loaded with fresh vegetables and chickpeas, making veggies the most important thing on your plate.

Use veggies as name tag holders for a meal get together.  Cut the veggies in half and hollow them out.  Cut out paper tags and put the guests names on them, then slice and opening on the top of the veggie to slip in the name tag for the display. 

Tip #4:  Backyard Green Grocer

Try making some Green Garden Fries with fresh veggies from your own garden or a local Farmer's Market.  You will oven fry them and then dip them in a delicious Greek yogurt dipping sauce.

After you plant the seeds in your garden, cut out the flower or produce pictures from the seed packets and decoupage them onto plain notecards.  This will create a cute collage(s).

Tip #5:  Switch Up the 'Wich

Try a new twist to the original sandwich comfort food with the Greek Grilled Cheese Taco.  For this you would use grilled Greek halloumi cheese & fresh veggies & herbs stuffed in a flour tortilla.

There is a new, fun way to serve up food for the family.  Use a frisbee or flying disc and line it with a colorful bandana.  Arrange sandwiches and other tasty snacks on the disc and serve them to the family.

These are just 5 of the 10 great Betty Crocker tips that were available at their website here.  You can also get more great tips from Erica here
