One Month Ends & Another Begins

The past few weeks have really just been a whirlwind of activity.  October is the month when all the Apple Houses open up.  There is apple picking, festivals, and all kinds of happenings that center around apples.  I, myself, have been to 3 apple houses in these two weeks to get my fill of apples.  And with all these apples I have been canning them, drying them, and trying new recipes.  Apples are one of my favorites.

Go! Go! Gadget Tuesday - Let's Talk Popcorn

I'm not sure if I have ever let it be known, but I love popcorn.  It is one of my favorite snacks, well, besides chips (regular, bbq).  I am not really a sweets person I would rather go for salty.  Now, this leads me to this new gadget (I have had for a while) I found at Sur La Table.  
It is a very great popcorn popper for the microwave and no oil is needed.  It is so easy to use and clean-up is a snap.  I cannot have the conveniently packaged popcorn because I cannot have dairy  (the butter) and a few other ingredients (which is a discussion for another time).  The 'poptop' popcorn popper allows me the fun of a popcorn snack without making me sick.
If you are looking for an easy-to-use popcorn popper.  This is definitely the ticket.
