  1. This was very clean tasting and yummy. Enjoyed this different recipe for popcorn, thank you!
  2. We don't use a microwave and popped the popcorn the old fashioned way on the stove top.<br/>Didn't have fresh parsley on hand but it was still really good using dried parsley. No salt is necessary because the lemon plays the role quite well on its own. We really liked this! Very different! Thanks for posting!
  3. The whole family enjoyed these popcorn - a real nice and fresh change to the regular popcorn. We had the lemon/parsley combo and my oldest has asked me if we can have it 'whenever we have popcorn' - so it was definitely a success. Thanks for posted. Made for Gimme 5 tag
  4. I made the lime zest + cumin variation. I also added some chili powder. We enjoyed this very much. I can't wait to try the other variations. Thank you for posting. Made for PRMR.
  5. Being the pop-corn freak that I knew I just had to try these different variations to top popcorn that I have somehow never put together. I like the orange/rosemary one the best:-) TYSM for lots of options Doug!~ Made for ZaarStars!~
