Rachael Ray’s Cinnamon Popcorn #SundaySupper


Cinnamon Popcorn

Are you obsessed with celebrity chefs?  Do you watch Food Network and The Cooking Channel in your spare time?  Do you have tons of celebrity chef cookbooks?  If you answered yes to any of those, you are in for a treat today!  The #SundaySupper event this week hosted by Tammi from Momma’s Meals at is all about our favorite celebrity chefs.

I had a hard time picking my favorite, I like so many!  But in the end I went with Rachael Ray.  You either love her or hate her, and I am a fan :)  When I first started watching the Food Network, she was who I watched.  I am not sure that she got me interested in cooking, because I always liked cooking, but she definitely made it more important to me.  I remember watching 30 minute meals in my college apartment, probably when I should have been studying.  I really don’t have a favorite recipe by Rachael, so I decided to try a new one this week.

A local popcorn store here sells Cinnamon Popcorn.  I tried it, and I could have sworn it tasted just like Red Hots candy.  It was a little spicy for my 7 year old, but I love it.  Then the next week my Everyday with Rachael Ray magazine came in the mail, and she had a recipe for Red Hot Popcorn.  I was excited to get in the kitchen and try it.  It is super easy to make, and tastes just like the popcorn store.  It is such a festive color too, it would be perfect to put in gift baskets or give to neighbors for the holidays.

Pumpkin Biscoff Bread #SundaySupper


Pumpkin Biscoff Bread

It is getting to be that time of year.  The time where we all need gift ideas for neighbors, teachers, caregivers, the mailman etc.  It can be hard to come up with those little gifts each year.  I am a firm believer that, if you put the time and effort into making something, it will be much more appreciated.  So I would much rather bake someone cookies than buy them a gift card.  Today Susan from The Wimpy Vegetarian is hosting the #SundaySupper “Holiday Gifts from the Kitchen” event.

We moved into our house over the summer.  We live on a long cul-de-sac, and I have yet to meet all of our neighbors.  I was thinking of baking mini loaves of bread this year, and delivering them around the block as a way of meeting everyone.  The first time I saw this bread was at Love From The Oven, where she used applesauce and flax meal.   Then I saw Budget Gourmet Mom had a version with Greek Yogurt, and I was sold.

This made 4 mini loaves, or 1 full sized loaf if you don’t feel like sharing.  Pumpkin and Biscoff were pretty much made for each other.  This isn’t the first time I have had the combination, and it won’t be the last.  This bread is tender, and full of the great pumpkin flavor you love.  I printed the recipe, and glued it to a colored piece of paper.  I then used ribbons and a plastic gift bag to package it.  All set for delivery!  If you really liked your neighbors you could get ceramic mini loaf pans.  I have seen them at Michael’s craft store for $1.99.
