popcorn popping...















Loooove popcorn! And microwave popcorn... so easy... gotta love it. Uh-oh... maybe not such a good idea. Read a little about why not on shelterrific's blog and then some more here. Oi, every day it's something. Well, normally, I try to take most of these warnings with a grain of salt... otherwise I'd lose my mind, there are so many! This one alarms me though, we eat quite a bit of microwave popcorn, usually once a week with the kids for a movie night or a special snack. Luckily shelterrific provided what appears to be a good alternative. Healthier, cheaper, and it looks yummy, too! A combination I can live with! Learn to make your own microwave popcorn here.

have made popcorn this way several times since i read this. I love it. I didn't read the article but I read about it and it just confirmed to me that we shouldn't be eating store bought microwave popcorn for other reasons besides the hydrogenated oil. this is easy and cheap and much better I think. I throw a chunk of butter in with it and it is perfectly buttery! My new favorite -healthy!- snack!
