Answers - Easy #34

Pairs figure skating is on at this moment...let's see if I can get through this entry in time to watch one of my favorite Olympic events.

Boy, I suspected we all have diverse tastes, and last weeks question proved just that!  I got hungry writing about food, and then reading the replies.  Popcorn made it onto every did chips and salsa.  No surprises there!

>Robin< commented in the original entry and she's the only person I know who eats humus.  Before I knew Robin, I didn't know humus existed, and now every trip to the grocery store brings Robin to mind when I pass by the deli section.  I'll never be the same.  If you have a minute, drop by her journal and say hi; she lost her aunt to cancer today.

>Barb< also responded in the original entry and she included the new flavor of a long time favorite, toasted almond crunch ice cream.  Hmmm, almonds, toasted, in ice cream.  Say no more...sounds good and I would love to have a dish right now.

In her journal >Christy< tells us she is a chocolate girl, much to the delight of her sons who found it easy to convince her to bake them some brownies.  Yummy, yummy brownies!  Maybe we can convince Christy to make some for us...or perhaps post the recipe if she has time.

Speaking of recipes and sweets and popcorn, here's a great recipe for quick and easy carmel popcorn.  :)

Caramel Popcorn

2 bags microwave popcorn (popped)
1/4 cup light Karo syrup
1 stick butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 brown grocery bag, or large plastic container with lid

Put popcorn in bag or container.  Combine syrup, sugar and butter in deep bowl.  Microwave on high for 2 1/2 minutes.  Stir and cook another 2 1/2 minutes.  Add baking soda.  Pour over popcorn, shake in bag or covered container until well coated.  Turn onto cookie sheet to cool.

And on that thought, I'll close this entry with these beautiful, handmade...cakes.  Amazing.



Hard to believe that those are cakes!  Thank you ladies for playing along; I'll have another question posted tomorrow!

Those cakes are INCREDIBLE.  I've made some cute cakes...but that's just art!! Who made them?  Did YOU?   Thanks for the recipe too.  When I can cook again I just may have to make some.

WOW....I was ready to be envious of those bags...and I find out they are cakes.  Who could eat them ?  I wonder if there is a lipstick, comb and change purse in each one?  Linda
