Just One Handful…

We have been popping popcorn nonstop for the past 4 months.

So at this point, I have a love hate relationship with it.  Every time I test a flavor, I make a full bag of popcorn to test it with.  You would think after a couple of handfuls I would be able to put it down.  Nope. I can’t even stop eating it even if I find the flavor horrible!  I eat the entire bag…. every time.  As much as I love popcorn, I don’t want to end up looking like a puffed kernel.

So that’s why at 11am, when I wanted to test three flavors, I only popped one bag of popcorn.  I ate the entire bag, but I didn’t feel guilty, because I was at least testing out three different flavors.

Maple & Vietnamese cinnamon, pictured above, tasted like warm, buttered, cinnamon toast.

Thyme & Sea Salt with Grape See Oil made me feel like I was sitting on sea bluffs, high above the Mediterranean.


Rosemary & Parmesan was fragrant, hearty, and the perfect snack on a cold rainy/snowy day.


I think I can do this. 3 flavors and 1 bag at a time.

    Sounds like the best job ever! At least you’re not testing dessert recipes.. Those start to “show” much more quickly, if you know what I mean… 😉

    Hi Hannah,

    ha, thanks for your comment. Yes, those “show” much more quickly, but at least you can stop with one. You can’t stop eating just one kernel… 🙂
    I need to test out some of your dessert recipes soon! They look delicious!

    Thanks again,
