Customize your popcorn!

cinnacorn Move over, plain buttery popcorn!

Popcorn is mostly associated with movies and sporting events, but can be an enjoyable light snack at anytime in the day depending on the kind of popcorn you have and the kind of toppings you add. Next time you’re in the mood for popcorn, try it one of these ways:

Healthier Popcorn Brands:
Smart Balance Light Butter
Newman’s Own Organics Pop’s Corn, Light Butter
Quinn Popcorn Olive Oil & Herbs
Jolly Time Healthy Pop Butter
Black Jewell Kettle

Optional Popcorn Toppings:
Dark 85% Chocolate: Simply place two squares of chocolate in a microwavable bowl and microwave for under a minute. Use a spoon to break up chocolate and drizzle overtop popcorn. Add nuts as well, if desired. 

Cinnamon: It works on just about everything, including popcorn. Sprinkle a light helping overtop for some cinnamon flavor.

Cool Ranch: Those dry packets of dressing have so much more use to them other than just for salads. Ranch fan? Use half a tablespoon of dry ranch dressing to sprinkle over your popcorn to create a tangy taste.

Buffalo Sauce: Add 1 tablespoon unsalted butter and 1 tablespoon buffalo sauce in a microwavable bowl, combining well. Microwave slightly and immediately drizzle overtop popcorn. 

Smoked Paprika and Olive Oil: Adding a slight amount of olive oil and sprinkling paprika adds a little bit of kick to your popcorn.

Neighbor Gift Tags for Remodel Purposes

This past November we purchased our first home, a cute little capecod that needed some updating as well as additional square-feet added. Because we live in an area where there seem to be a lot of remodels, gut-jobs and new home builds currently happening, we know firsthand just how inconvenient the noise (and mess) can be sometimes.

So I thought up a peace offering; a bag of cookies just to say we’re sorry for our construction that has been happening and will happen for the next few months ahead. It’s also a nice little way of introducing yourself to your new neighbors as well. Plus, it helps that they turned out cute!
