Tupperware Tuesday: Whip N' Prep Chef


Running a little late with today's post... but better late than never!

Today I'm featuring one of Tupperware's newer products.  I hadn't used it until recently, and since I used it the first time, I'm in love!

The Whip N' Prep Chef is basically a manual mixer.  It whips just about anything in very little time, and doesn't need to use electricity.  I've used it several times to make whipped cream, and mousse.  It is so quick!  The way that the whisks are designed, every turn of the handle is the same as whipping 27 times.  It is so simple!  You just turn the handle and in a few seconds, you have nice whipped whatever you are making.

Some suggestions for using this product:
Whipped Cream
Simple Mousses
Beat Eggs for Omelettes (Makes them very fluffy)
Light Batters (Crepes, Pancakes)

Here is what Whipped Cream looks like about 2 minutes:

Here's the Chocolate Mousse Recipe that I use... It's as easy as 1-2-3! 

1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
2 tablespoons of Cocoa
3 tablespoons of Sugar

Pour all ingredients into the Whip N' Prep and mix until it forms nice peaks.  Top with Whipped Cream and Crushed Oreos.

Now for today's post... I have a ton of assignments due, and at times like this its hard to focus on why I'm really doing this... Teaching is my passion. I know that, but sometimes I need a little inspiration.  A lot of times, I turn to quotes for inspiration and to remind me that all of this will be worth it...
