Popcorn . . . crunchy, light, and downright cool the way it POPS—it’s a snack that just feels right with a movie, served at a party or, for some aficionados, as a daily staple food. Here you’ll find seasonings and toppings that aren’t going to be spiked with a sugary coating or artificial “I-have-no-clue-what-that-is” kind of ingredients. This is popcorn for healthy families who like tasty treats—or at the very least it’s popcorn for moms that are trying to get the junk food out of snack time.
When we were growing up, Momma always had a bean crock that was big enough to hold a monster batch of bran muffin batter.

Every child should learn to cook basic meals that include the full range of nutrients from different food groups. This one-pot meal is a great one for younger kids to help with and can be quickly learned by older children to do completely on their own.
