From pickles to popcorn

I love to share things that I learn from my love of cooking. I recently learned that you can make your own healthy microwave popcorn just by using a paper lunch bag and your microwave. Ditto for quick & easy kettle corn. I’ve also learned that you can make pickles in three hours.

And I never knew how easy it was to make my own granola bars until I tried it. Or my own bread crumbs. Or my own caramel corn. Do yourself a favor and don’t make my caramel corn. You will take the first bite and won’t be able to stop! You’ve been warned. – Jenny Jones
