Cookies and Cream Popcorn Cookies and Cream Popcorn I have really bad luck with making popcorn – Ryan has even forbidden me from making popcorn in our apartment after consecutively burning 2 bags in the microwave within the same week. I love a small bag of kettle corn as a snack, but unfortunately I’m not very lucky when it comes to popping them, and the terrible smell of a burnt bag of popcorn seems to linger for weeks. However, after ignoring my microwave popcorn restriction and making this amazing cookies and cream treat, I’m pretty sure I can now make popcorn whenever I want. Ryan, myself, and a few friends I shared this with were all 100% addicted to this popcorn and the fact that it’s so easy to make is a scary thought – bikinis beware! Making this is SO SO easy, as in the hardest part is not burning the popcorn. Freshly popped kettle corn is mixed with crushed Oreos and melted white chocolate and laid out to dry.
Funfetti Cake Batter Popcorn Funfetti Cake Batter Popcorn Ever since I made Cookies and Cream Popcorn a few months ago I’ve been waiting for the opportunity to try a new flavor of candied popcorn. Not that I really needed an official occasion for such a delicious concoction, but I wasn’t about to trust myself with a batch of this stuff just sitting around the apartment. So when I was invited to a pool party a few weekends ago, I knew this would be the perfect treat that would feed a lot of people but be easy to throw together. And let me tell you, this funfetti popcorn was definitely the right choice – it literally disappeared within the few minutes after I showed up!!

Apple Nachos! I have no clue where I originally saw this idea years ago–but in today’s blogging world, apple nachos have become just about as ubiquitous as raw ballz… But, there may still be a few folks remaining who aren’t tuned into all the apple nacho hoopla. If you’ve never tried them, give ‘em a whirl! They are ridiculously easy and taste much more awesome than they sound. Plus, my kids LOVE them as a midday snack. And did I mention how silly easy these are to toss together?

While searching for the perfect edible Valentine’s Day treat, I found countless cupcakes, candies, and cookies. Then a friend introduced me to CAKE POPS…a rolled up ball of cake dipped in candy coating on a lollipop stick. This was perfect and began my search for all things cake pop.

Salted Honey Butter Caramels A couple weeks ago, a few of the girls I work with and I took out our (now-former) coworker Dana for a good-bye lunch at nearby Landmarc restaurant. One of my favorite spots in the city, the food at Landmarc is reliably delicious, but even more so are the generous handfuls of homemade butter caramels that come out complimentary along with the check. Soft, chewy, with just a slight tinge of burnt sugar, these caramels are absolutely addictive. Salted Honey Butter Caramels

Salted butter caramels 16th December 2010By EmmaPhotography by Emma I love the intangible feeling of Christmas – that big, warm, swelling feeling that rises up inside you. The closer we draw to Christmas (9 days and counting) the more palpable this feeling becomes. It’s in the shop windows, it’s in the Christmas trees – strung with lights that twinkle in darkened lounge windows and it’s in the Christmas carols that float on the sticky, humid summer air. I go out of my way to soak it all in. I have taken my place in the queue that forms in Franklin Rd; it inches slowly past houses curtained in Christmas lights, past front yards filled with gold and silver baubles, past Christmas stockings strung from porches and angels hanging from rooftops.

Insanity. That’s what this is. Pure In.San.It.TEEEEE. You know those days when you’re in desperate need of sugar and you’ve already downed more gummy vitamins than recommended while seriously considering how many more you can ingest without causing severe harm to your internal organs?
1) FOR THE CRUST: Preheat your oven to 300°F. Spray a 9" x 13" pan lightly with cooking spray, or line with parchment, and set aside. 2) In a medium-sized bowl, beat together the butter, sugar and vanilla. Add the flour. At first the mixture may seem dry, but will come together as you continue to beat at medium speed.
