I haven't quite gotten the kitchen back together. Everything is still in boxes or wrapping. Though that doesn't seem to make you any less hungry... ever...

So here's a quick way to dress up popcorn. It uses my absolute favorite spice company, Penzey's Spices


For fresh > 1 cup popcorn kernels, 3 tbs coconut oil, 1/2 tsp good salt

For easy > 1 bag of microwave popcorn

If you're using microwave popcorn, put the bag in the microwave and press "Popcorn".

For fresh, heat the coconut oil in the bottom of a medium sized pot or high sided pan. Make sure it has a lid or you'll be cleaning up popcorn for awhile. Add the popcorn kernels to the pot and swirl in oil over medium high heat. Keep the lid on but vented a touch. In 5-10 minutes it will start to pop. Keep swirling so the fresh kernels can hit the oil. When it stops popping heavily or your pot fills (either one works) take it off immediately and dump it into a bowl. Sprinkle with the salt mixture and toss well.

Now to make it awesome:

Take about 1/4 tsp of Penzey's Spices "Brady Street" seasoning. Sprinkle and toss well with about 2 tbs of melted butter and popcorn. I'm telling you, it's like heaven!

Once I have pots and pans again and a kitchen I can move in without knocking stuff off counters, I'll post some more!
