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.
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!!

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.
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. I usually gobble up a couple right at the table and tuck the extras away in my purse for a surprise treat at a later date. The night after our lunch, I found myself laying in bed thinking about those caramels.

16th December 2010 By Emma Photography 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?
Every Fall we make caramel popcorn, it is a tradition in our house. Over the weekend we were hanging out at home with the baby and watching football. I thought it was the perfect day to bust out a batch of caramel corn, so I asked Josh if he could watch the baby while I went to work.
Happy Wednesday, beautiful people. Factoid for you: Getting my car serviced stresses me. To deal, I totally made Churro Tots. Throw in stress eating and calls to dad, and it some how made everything okay. I encourage it!
Last weekend a friend I decided to neglect our school work and go for a hike in the snow followed by dinner and a movie at my house. I had all the ingredients on hand for some tasty Corn and Cheese Chowder which was perfect way to warm up after a cold hike. My friend said she’d be in charge of bringing ingredients for us to make dessert and I was so excited to see that she’d picked out these truffles! Eating the cookie dough is usually one of the best parts of making cookies, but then you feel bad because you’re supposed to be making cookies- not snacking on the dough! These cute little truffles taste just like cookie dough and since they don’t have any eggs, they’re totally safe to eat. These can be decorated in all sorts of creative ways and they’ll look like a suitable ‘grown up’ dessert, even though you’re eating cookie dough!
