Basic Granola Recipe. Dutch Oven Kettle Corn. Popcorn Balls! My new holiday cookbook comes out today, and I’m so excited.

Popcorn Balls!

For so long, as I was working on the cooking and writing and editing, today was just this distant, faraway date that I never thought would get here. But it’s here! Time actually marched on! I really hope you enjoy the book, guys. It was a labor of love, and my camera is a sticky mess.

Homemade Chex mix is something I've traditionally reserved for the holidays, making big batches in the oven and wrapping portions up as gifts for family and friends.

Being diehard Ohio State Buckeyes fans, our Saturday afternoons are penciled in for watching college football from September through November, and somehow our garage has become the neighborhood game day hotspot (which I love!). I figured this past Saturday was the perfect opportunity to test out my new slow cooker Chex mix recipe. I've since tweaked the recipe a little more, and in my opinion, it's even better.
