Tea tins three Lg_72

I store my new Lipton tea bags in tea tins that I’ve collected over the years. Each time I take out tea bags, I enjoy a fond memory about where I bought the tea tin.

Vegetarian recipe: Avocado Lime Deviled Eggs

Kap deviled eggs vegetarian_72

Summer time + picnics = deviled eggs served in Tupperware! I have my own deviled eggs recipe but I make this Avocado Lime Deviled Eggs recipe for my son. The Kup Kap on the wine glass keeps flying insects out. My son is a vegetarian and eats nothing with eyes! 


1 dozen hard cooked large eggs, peeled

2 medium avocados, seeded and pulp scooped out

¼ cup reduced fat, light mayonnaise

4-­5 teaspoons lime juice

¼ teaspoon garlic powder

¼ teaspoon ground red cayenne pepper

½ teaspoon salt

cilantro leaves and/or green onions, chopped, for garnish


  1. Slice eggs in half lengthwise. Scoop out the yolks and place in a medium bowl. (Be careful not to damage the white halves).
  1. Add avocado to bowl, and mash yolks and avocado thoroughly with a fork until fairly smooth. Add mayonnaise, lime juice, garlic powder, cayenne and salt. Stir well to blend all ingredients.
  1. Place filling in the whites using a small spoon or pipe in with a pastry bag and decorative tube.
  1. Garnish as desired. Serve immediately or refrigerate in a tightly covered container.

Kap Prairie Thyme wine_72

It’s time to move outdoors to your deck, the neighborhood park, or a balcony. When you do move outside, remember that flying critters are waiting for you. Put a Kup Kap over your glass to keep the insects from taking a swim in your favorite drink!

For a quick snack with your wine, spread Raspberry Jalapeno Ambrosia condiment by Prairie Thyme on a cracker and top with a cheese cutout. We’ve used Prairie Thyme condiments for years. The great taste comes from all natural ingredients. There are recipes using the condiments on their web site.


Mister Donuts in Osaka, Japan

Colleen traveled by highway bus from Tokushima to Osaka, Japan to explore the area. She stayed in the new Hankyu Hotel which has a unique feature.

Reporting from Japan she writes, “I’m on the “Ladies Floor” at the hotel, with a ladies room with ladies things. Because I’m a lady!”

A lady needs a cup of hot tea to bring calm at the end of her day.

Colleen travels with her own cup lid so she used it on her mug of hot tea. She knows a Kup Kap designed with Thinsulate insulation by 3M used in Arctic clothing holds in heat longer than a ceramic lid.

Colleen writes, “Winding down with some Mister Donuts (very popular here!), some note-jotting on my pretty new memo pad, and some herbal tea with a Kup Kap on the cup.”

Herb Tea Echinacea from Japan

Kap Japan tea and cup_72

My daughter Colleen gave me Herb Tea Echinacea when she came home from Japan. She knows I take Echinacea tablets if I feel a cold coming on. She also chose a tea cup for me with colors that I love.

The Echinacea tea has a mild celery taste. I stirred a splash of raw honey from a local bee keeper into the mug for more health benefits. The Kup Kap keeps the tea hot so I can sip it. Slowly drinking hot Echinacea tea is much more fun than swallowing tablets!


Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Espresso Beans

Kap Trader Joes Choc Espresso Beans_72

You can get your caffeine fix in liquid form or in a solid form. I call Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Espresso Beans “portable coffee” easily carried and stored. When you pop one in your mouth, you’ll taste chocolate then coffee when you bite into it!

These espresso beans were made by using the panning process. The dark roasted 100% Arabica coffee beans are covered with hundreds of layers of rich dark chocolate which is finely sprayed onto the beans in huge copper bowls. The tilted bowl turns like a rock tumbler and makes the candies shiny.

Only $4.49 will get you a 14 ounce tub of kosher certified Dark Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans at Trader Joe’s!


Where to find Girl Scout Cookies

Kap Girl Scout cookies_72

The first Girl Scout cookies were baked in their families’ kitchens under the supervision of their moms. In the 1920’s and 30’s, one dozen cookies cost 25 – 35 cents. Today ABC Bakers and Little Brownie Bakers are licensed to produce the cookies for the annual sale. There are eight different kinds including vegan cookies.

If for some reason you can’t eat the cookies, buy for gifts or donate cookies to a community senior center or teen center for their next event. Your support = her success!

A grateful email and photo from one of our fans:

Hello Koffee Kompanions!

I was given two of your creations as a Christmas gift by Ginger. As a writer, French press snob, and obsessive coffee drinker, these have been a godsend.
