Make Popcorn!

One of my very favorite websites I found since beginning my love of blog reading, was this:  Tammy's Recipes.  There are a lot of reasons I liked it but the #1 is that her recipes are tried and true, and really good!  I use her site like a virtual cookbook, just searching for the category I need.

Anyway...every Tuesday she has a gathering called Kitchen Tip Tuesdays.  Most weeks I try to join in, and I wanted to share something simple that we love:

Popcorn!  Why?  For 15 dollars at Walmart we purchased this hot air popper a few years ago.  I love that it doesn't use anything besides hot air to cook the corn.  Even more I like that we have no cancer causing chemicals to inhale by way of microwave popcorn!  I'm becoming a little obsessive about using natural foods these days.








So here's what I love about popcorn:


  • Whole grain
  • can make tons of different flavors (try our Caramel Corn recipe!)
  • crunchy
  • fun kid snack
  • CHEAP, especially when made this way
When we were in Law school (by we I mean my husband :) whenever food money was scarce I loved the comfort of our Sunday treat of hot popcorn.  Our other favorite penny-pinching comfort food was homemade bread (will be posting more on that in the coming days).

Do you love home popped popcorn?  What makes it special?

  1. There is nothing better than fresh air-popped popcorn... except adding caramel! :)

  3. Popcorn is a huge favorite in our house, but we haven't found an air popper here in Guatemala. I have looked and looked and when in Canada, I searched for one, too, but couldn't find it before we came back down.
