No stars, because I think the problem was my particular Italian seasoning. Neither my 3 year-old daughter or I ate more than half of our popcorn... there was a very bitter taste to it. She said it was "too spicy". I used my new-ish container of store brand Italian seasoning, and I think it was the problem, not the recipe, so I don't want to ruin this recipe's 5-star rating. If I make it again I'll re-rate with stars. Thanks anyway.
