How are things in your world today? I’m busy in the kitchen all day but hopefully finding time to sneak out later to get a pedicure because (drum roll please) I teach my first yoga class tomorrow! Yikes. I’m a little scared. Okay….a lot scared. But I think a lucky pedicure will help that, don’t you? Going out into the community and teaching classes to people who might normally not be able to get in the studio is a big part of my training. So once a week, I’ll be going into a local high school and teaching the teachers after school for an hour. Someone say a prayer!!!
I also experienced my first huge fail with The Recipe Box Challenge yesterday. Such a bummer but I guess that’s why it’s a “challenge”. I don’t know why it worked in 1942, but trust me that you can’t make cookies using shredded coconut and sweetened condensed milk as the only two ingredients. It just doesn’t work.
But for right now, let’s talk about this popcorn. And the fact that it takes just like funfetti cake.
One of super fun freelance projects I do is write for The Tasty Kitchen Blog. I LOVE it and have been doing it for about a year and a half now. Once a month, I’ll hunt down a creative new recipe posted by a Tasty Kitchen member and then I’ll recreate that recipe in my own kitchen and post my step-by-step photo instructions. There are so many fantastic recipes on that site that it’s always hard to choose….but as soon as I saw this birthday cake batter popcorn (original recipe by Mrs. Schwartz’s Kitchen), I knew I was done for.
Hellooooo rainbow sprinkles! How I love you.
On top of rainbow sprinkles, there’s also white chocolate and yellow cake mix in this sweet crunchy treat. It only took five minutes to make and then I had my hand permanently in the bowl for the rest of the day, which I deemed as okay since popcorn is a whole-grain treat. Obvi.
The white chocolate and cake mix combine to make the most delicious sweet topping that hardens on the popcorn….trust me, it’s pretty irresistible. And dangerous…but mostly just amazing.
The only thing on my mind now is how to make birthday cake batter popcorn balls!!!!
I really want to be the type of yoga teacher that presents my students with a popcorn ball after savasana.
