Forgive me with this yummy treat!

December got away from me.  I was busy.  And I would be lying if I didn't tell you that I had second thoughts about this blog.  I kept thinking it was silly.  I know very little about actual cooking or nutrition.  And I hardly do anything new or inventive.  I make my mom's food and then find yummy recipes online.  Nothing new. 

But then a few people said some pretty some stuff to me. (Thank you Sharon for the final boost!) And I realized - I might not know very much about cooking.  And I might never make something insanely new and inventive.  But I LOVE FOOD.  That's why I started this blog.  Because I love food.  I love cooking yummy things and then getting to eat them.  I love trying new recipes.  That's why I started this blog.  Not to impress everyone with my amazing cooking skills or my creative recipes or even my knowledge on nutrion - cause there won't be any of that here.  Just lots of yummy recipes.

I won't be as dedicated to my weekly posts as I was. There will be at least one a week but don't be hopeful on more. And we'll still do Follower Fridays so if you're not following this blog, hurry and click that button! I want you to be able to share your recipes too.

So to my awesome 29 followers - forgive me for being M.I.A. for a few months?  And let's get this thing started again! 

This was one of my "neighbor treats" for Christmas.  It's freaking delicious!  My one neighbor told me she ate it in one sitting - it's addicting.  Enjoy!  And yes I'm buttering you up with this buttery recipe to get your forgiveness....gosh I'm hilarious.

Buttery Nutty Popcorn (with M&M's)
10 cups poppped popcorn
1 1/3 c. sugar
2 c. butter
1/2 c. Karo Syrup
1 tsp vanilla.

Pop the popcorn and set aside.  Place aluminum foil on cookie sheet.  Grease the aluminum foil.  (I used PAM)  Melt butter and sugar together in a pan.  Boil until it turns a light carmel color (about 5 minutes)  Take off heat, add vanilla.  Pour over popcorn.  Stir until all popcorn is coated.  Mix cashews and mixed nuts.  Pour onto the aluminum foil.  Top with M&M's.  Put into little goodie bags to give away or just DEVOUR the popcorn yourself! :)
