One Year Ago and Another Caramel Post

One year ago today, I was posting about Chocolate Covered Fleur de Sel Caramels, trying to figure out how the heck to work with Blogger, and hoping this little blog would be of interest to one or two people. Little did I know that a year later, I would be posting about caramel again (again!), that I would still be trying to figure blogger out (how the heck do I create a recipe index?) and that I would be part of the fabulous Food Blogging community. Countless times I've turned to food blogs for tips, answers and inspiration and I haven't been disappointed. There is so much talent and creativity out there, in the blogging world, I just hope I've contributed to it a little bit. Of course, this blog would be a lot less fun without all of your comments and I want to thank everyone who took the time to read and comment, it means a lot to me. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I love you guys!

Caramel popcorn is one of my favorite things in the world and I'm not sure if this is a good or a bad thing, but I've found a foolproof recipe to make it myself. It is crazy good and easy to make. Really, I could make it every day! Well, OK, maybe every week, because this makes A LOT of caramel popcorn.

The first blog post I saw about caramel popcorn was on Aimée's blog. She had presented it in such a creative way and I've been itching to make some ever since. I used this recipe from The Amateur Gourmet which is very similar to Aimée's only that it doesn't require a candy thermometer and it's called Never Fail Caramel Corn. With a title like that, how could I not try it? For the popcorn itself, I turned to Elise and found the Perfect Popcorn Recipe. My microwave is going to feel very lonely on movie night from now on!

See? I told you I found tips and inspiration from other food blogs! My blogroll is getting longer every day, and that's a good thing! I just wish there were more hours in a day so I could visit more blogs, cook more, bake more, take many, many more photos and oh, yes, maybe bake a little more. :) Here's to another fun year!
Pin It!

Happy Blogoversary! The popcorn looks soo yummy!

I forget how I made my "menu list", something to do with my labels, and the elements page. As for being on a seprate pg of it's own, I have no idea other than making it an entry, then linking to it. Sorry to confuse you, Good luck! Love your blog!

I could eat a whole batch of this right now. Not a good idea to be surfing just before dinner, I might so something impulsive!
Thanks for the shout out. I adore caramel corn too, but as I have no self-control in that area, I can't make it to often.
