    Just Like Mama's

    Remember when your Mom would fire up the Popcorn pan?  For us it was Saturday night TV. Maybe a scary movie or The Twilight Zone. We could hear the pan being filled with the rattle of kernels. The aroma and finally ..yep..the Popping. I love that sound. It's so happy. I...

    It Is So Easy

    Popping the corn in a kettle is so easy. Not only does it save a ton of money (yes, I do eat a lot of popcorn...) but I also know what goes into the pot with the popcorn.  When I have gone the microwave route, and I will when in a hurry, or when given no other options, I often...
