two yums...

i wanted to share this glazed pecan recipe that i found the other night because they were oh so good and super easy.

i put them in a salad along with baby spinach, dried and sweetened cranberries (craisins), and feta cheese, and topped it off with a raspberry walnut vinaigrette dressing. it was a big hit at dinner with the girls in my home group, and since it was so simple, i had to share.

the other "yum" i came across on a stranger's blog that i follow, and have already tried it out because i was so excited (and hungry for a snack). i'm a big fan of popcorn, but not of the greasy and overly buttery kind. i've popped my own for a long time using a pot on the stove, olive oil, and kernels... but doing it this way keeps me from having popcorn very often because of the time it takes and dishes it dirties. so, i was happy to discover the recipe.. just drizzle a tiny bit of olive oil over about two tablespoons of popcorn kernels, put them in a brown paper sack, and microwave. amazing, right? i'm sure you could put melted butter on before or after popping, so try that out if you'd like. easy, cheap, and delicious.

I didn't realize that you were responsible for the tasty salad. The pecans made my night.

Make your own microwave popcorn is one of my new favorite tricks. It's way less messy and crazy cheap.
