Sweet and Salty No-Bake Popcorn Cookies | The Croods

Salty and Sweet No Bake Popcorn Cookies from Foodie with Family

I love movies of all kinds: comedy, drama, action, adventure, COLIN FIRTH (because he gets his own category), HUGH JACKMAN (because he does, too), classics, musicals, suspense, animation (both silly and serious)… I love all of them.

Grandma’s Snickerdoodles

Grandmas Snickerdoodles from Foodie with Family

My family lives, talks, dreams, plans, prepares, preaches, and eats food. We don’t breathe it, however, as aspirating food is generally acknowledged to be a bad idea.

Raise your hand if you, like me, love snickerdoodles beyond any other cookie on the face of the earth.  Raise your other hand if you, also like me, really don’t think snickerdoodles need to be messed with to make them wonderful.  Raise your foot (since we’re running out of hands) if you think tinkering with…

Oftentimes, the ordinary things are the ones that bring the most pleasure; a cool breeze on a hot day, sitting quietly next to your kids on the couch, studying puffy white clouds in a cerulean sky, eating the first sun-warmed berry of the season or curling up to sleep at night between cool, clean sheets….
