The Best Homemade Popcorn Recipe

The Best Homemade Popcorn Recipe

When it comes to snack foods, there is one that reigns supreme in my book: homemade popcorn. My kids love it too, and its a sure fire way to make movie night in feel complete. Popcorn is a whole food, and an ideal snack. This recipe is so simple, just three ingredients, but it’s really all about the method that makes this the best homemade popcorn recipe: it’s warm, crispy, never soggy, with minimal wasted un-popped kernals.

3 Dessert Recipes I Perfected During Quarantine

The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever

Happy National Dessert Day! I know I am not alone in saying that I never baked as much as I did during the winter phase of quarantine.

Front Porch Progress

Serena and Lily Pacifica Sectional

I’ve made some progress on our front porch, and since Serena & Lily is having their Friends and Family Sale, I figured it was time to share the space thus far.

Since my inspiration board for Bear’s first nursery was one of your most favorite decor posts, I thought I should share my plans for Bear’s big boy room that is currently in the works. His current nursery is the closest bedroom to ours, so we are going to leave it as a nursery and move Luke out of our room and into that one while Bear “graduates” and goes down the hall.
