Garlic Butter and Herb Popcorn I love popcorn. It’s almost always the snack I reach for first. And for just about any time of day. Afternoons, evenings, while watching television, or while playing a game with the grandkids. More often than not, it’s just good old popped corn with butter and salt. But every once in a while I like to fancy it up a little bit. I read somewhere recently that popcorn is the new cupcakes. Start out with a large pan that has a tightly fitting lid. Add the oil and popcorn and increase the heat to medium high. When most of the kernels have popped, remove the pan from the heat. Enjoy! Garlic Butter and Herb Popcorn Popcorn coated with garlic infused butter and tossed with herbs and celery seed. Ingredients 1/4 cup butter 2 tblsp. canola oil 2 garlic cloves, crushed and peeled 1 cup popcorn kernels 2 tblsp. herbes de Provence (or dried herbs of your choice) 1/4 tsp. celery seed 2 tsp. salt Instructions Choose a large pan with a tight fitting lid.

Cake Batter Pancakes I’m fairly convinced that the world would be a better place if more sprinkles were involved. I know. I just made pancakes. It seems I have an unnatural obsession with cake batter. Well I do. When I develop recipes, I try to make all of them for a purpose. Case in point: it isn’t anyone’s birthday. But I don’t need an excuse to eat cake and sprinkles. And because pancakes always need some sort of topping, I went with a sprinkled glaze. Because nothing goes better with cake than more sugar! These are just plain fun. Sure, they would be best for a special occasion like a birthday, but they also work on a random Saturday in January when it’s -2 degrees outside and all you want to see is some sunshine. That wasn’t me. And yes, this means you will have an open box of cake mix, just like you did with the cake batter bark. Cake Batter Pancakes makes about 12 pancakes 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour 2/3 cup yellow cake mix 1 tablespoon sugar 3/4 teaspoon baking powder pinch of salt 2 eggs assorted sprinkles

Naan Recipe: If You Can Make Pancakes, You Can Make Naan Naan is one of my favorite components of an Indian meal. Sometimes when I go to an Indian buffet, I’ll hit the buffet one last time for naan only so that it is the last flavor in my mouth when I walk out the door. What is Naan? Naan is an Indian bread that is similar to pita, but so much better (don’t even try to debate it with me)! Why Did I Make a Naan Recipe?

Romancing the Stove - StumbleUpon Green Mac and Cheese Mac and cheese is the ultimate comfort meal for Mandi and me. We make it when it has been a rough day, or on a Sunday night to relax. It is very easy to make, super addicting when you eat it, and the best thing is there are always leftovers to bring in to work for lunch. Pretty basil flower. We are using the tops of broccoli in this meal, but don't toss out that beautiful stalk! This is some sausage I had in the freezer. A food processor would be better, but I was able to blend this up well after a few times of shutting it off and pressing everything down. Everything ready to go. Recently I had truffle mac and cheese as an appetizer at a restaurant and it was really tasty. Onions, Broc-stalk, salt, pepper, cayenne. After 10 minutes when the onions have sweated down, look to the bottom of the pan to see if there is any oil left that has not absorbed into the veggies. Meanwhile, Mandi made some breadcrumbs. We like to try different pastas when making mac and cheese. YUM cheesesauce. so good!

Black Pepper-Garlic Chicken Here's one on my favorite Stir-fry recipes, inspired by Black Pepper Chicken served at Panda Express Restaurants. The savory sauce took a bit of tinkering, but I think this copycat version is really close... and it's delicious, too! Please... don't forget to start this recipe with Velveted Chicken. Ingredients: 1 lb. Stir all of the sauce ingredients together in a small bowl, allowing about 10-15 minutes for the flavors to mingle/mature while you slice the vegetables. Stir-fry: Heat 2 Tablespoons oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat until almost smoking. Add the sliced red/yellow onions to the skillet, stirring constantly for about one minute. Add the sliced celery, green onions and chopped garlic to the skillet. Add the stir-fry sauce. Add the velveted chicken, reduce the heat to medium and stir to coat. Serve over prepared Basmati or Jasmine Rice. Enjoy!
