Caramel Corn Makes It All Better


caramel therapyWhen the going gets tough, caramel corn makes it all better.

You wouldn’t think so, but it does.

The elections are still months away, and the outlook is bleak. Winter came and never left. The school year is dragging on. Spring break is over, and your kids are behaving like sociopaths.

It’s time for caramel corn!

As a well-traveled adult, I know different people in different parts of the country have allegiances to various corneries. Garrett’s in Chicago, Vic’s of Omaha, our local Buddy Squirrel… I love them all, and am certainly open to new possibilities.

Since I’m not a food blogger, here is a link to Sally’s Baking Addiction. Don’t be daunted by the 10 cups of popcorn – popcorn is really fluffy, and once the caramel goodness is mixed in, it’s more compact. I suppose when you’re a food blogger like Sally, you have to include information about storing the leftovers, but…


…at our house


we wouldn’t know.
