Caramel Corn & $5 Dinner Mom Cookbook Review

First, I am hosting Presto Pasta Nights this week! Email me with your Pasta Recipes and I'll include you in the round up on Friday! Just put a link in your blog post linking to my blog and Presto Pasta Nights!  Crabbymomofthree at comcast dot net.

One of my very favorite blogs is $5 Dinners.  I've made many of her recipes, used cooking tips and printed recipes from her site.  Recently she sent me her latest book.  I LOVE it and I have many recipes bookmarked to make. 

In flipping through the cookbook, my kids all of a sudden stopped me. 

"Mom! You have to make this caramel popcorn!"

So I did. 

Never mind that it had a billion calories and I ate way too much of it. 

It was delicious and the kids loved it!  I look forward to making many more recipes from this awesome book!

  10. Caramel popcorn is the only popcorn I like (I know, I'm weird, everyone loves popcorn). I could easily sit and eat an entire bowl of this. Which is probably why I never make it. I'm going to look for that cookbook, I've never heard of it, but it sounds great! And what's one more cookbook.....

  11. Haha that sounds like what I do whenever I bake every week...make something with about a billion calories and then eat way too much of it.

    This looks so delicious and worth the calories!

  12. OMG! I love caramel corn and have to try this. I'm sure it's worth every calorie!

  13. I wouldn't be able to portion control that caramel corn. It looks soooo good. have a great day.

  14. That caramel corn looks delish. I think I'd have to eat all of it if I made some :)
