Muffin Tin Monday + Giveaway!



Well, I totally skipped a week - we did colors of the rainbow instead of blue/ purple for Muffin Tin Monday, oops. Our tin was so pretty and fun that we'll probably just do the same again next week! I had Lucy help plan what to put in the tin, choosing one item for each color. We had cherry tomatoes, carrots, yellow pepper, broccoli, frozen blueberries, and grapes with sides of ranch for dipping. The peppers were new for us and Lucy said they were her favorite item in the tin! We had macaroni for lunch and put the tin in the middle of the table for everyone to share. See those adorable little cups? They are Dippy Cups, an awesome new find!


Dippy Cups are little silicone cups perfect for ketchup, ranch, BBQ sauce, yogurt, and more. They are a perfect small size and we've been using them constantly since receiving them for review. See, I even took picture of a few meals: (Yes, I'm a well trained Muffin Tin Mom, lol.)



The great thing about these is that they are super easy to clean up. They don't have ridges like the silicone cupcake liners do, so food doesn't stick inside them. I'd highly recommend any mom with young kids have a set of these on hand! It also saves me from hearing the "my cheese is touching my ketchup" complaints. Dippy Cups were invented by a mom (of course!), and you can purchase them directly from their website. They come in a package of 6 bright rainbow colors.

I also have one package to give away. Leave a comment on this post letting me know why you think you would love Dippy Cups. You can leave extra comments for:
- following my blog,
- being an email subscriber, and
- blogging about the giveaway (linking back here and to the Dippy Cup website).
I'll close the giveaway next week Monday, April 5 at midnight. Thanks for stopping by!

(There is still time to join the Bake and Take Day fun here!)

*Giveaway closed. Congrats Susan!*

  1. I would love the cups! I like that you all shared the veggies and dip along with mac and cheese. JDaniel might eat more of the veggies if he saw me eating them too.

  4. I love it! I think it would be easier for my daughter! She is always getting ketchup on her other food and then won't eat it!

  6. My kids would love these! At every meal I put a big plate of fresh cut fruits and veggies in the middle and we all munch off it. So often they take way too much dip though. These would help eliminate that problem.


    Totally unrelated: Did you do something to disable right clicking on links not too long ago? I am an obsessive tab user and always opened the links in new tabs so I could look at the products you were talking about, but your site doesn't allow me to do that anymore. :( I find it very frustrating.

    Great tin too. My daughter says she want to eat all those veggies up. Hope your kiddos did.

  26. Courtney - I did disable right click as a way to protect my photos since I was putting so many of my kiddos on here. I didn't even think about tabs not working for people, that would drive me nuts too! I'm sorry!

  34. Very cute tin! Love the bright colors! The dippy cups are great! Something like that would definitely stop the "the ketchup got on my carrots" fussing at mealtimes. And no ridges would be great!

  46. What a great idea the Dippy Cups are! Not only for meals, but when I cook/bake, I like to prepare ahead of time. They look to be the perfect size for 1Tsp of this and 2tsp of that, etc.

  48. These look great! The fun colors are so bright and festive - also I too am not a big fan of my dipping sauce touching all my other food :)

  50. I totally forgot about the muffin tin! We have a 5 year old who doesn't want her food or condiments to touch each other. Wonderful idea!!
    The 2 year would probably use less ketchup if he wasn't smearing it all over his plate. The Dippy Cups are a great idea. All I have now are breakable so I am worried about the kids using them. The Dippy Cups would be great to take on picnics too!
