um.... Friday Treasures? Dress up your popcorn

This week's treasures are my five seven favorite things to put on popcorn. Popcorn is my yummy go-to healthy snack but I have to dress it up a little to keep it interesting.

1. Jane's crazy mixed-up salt. Best condiment ever. I use it in sauces, on veggies, pretty much everywhere. If you are a meat-eater, I've heard it makes a good marinade.

2. Popcorn Seasoning. It comes in many different flavors, but ranch is my fave. Harkins theaters have the seasoning for free, by the way, but Cinemark theaters make you buy your own little jar. I miss Harkins. (P.S. movie theater popcorn is not a "healthy snack")

3. Pizza popcorn: oregano, parmesan, and crushed red pepper. I also have something in my spice rack called "pizza seasoning" which works quite well.

4. Margarita popcorn: A bit of fresh lime juice and salt.

5. A little cinnamon & sugar sprinkled on top. Sweet. Use the ratio of 1 tsp cinnamon to 1 Tbsp sugar.

6. Cajun Seasoning. I recommend the "Slap Ya Mama" brand. It's what my MIL cooks with (she's from Louisiana). You can order it online, but I have also seen it at Cost Plus World Market.

7. If you can handle it... hot sauce. Especially Cholula brand.

If the toppings won't stick, I like to use a light spritz of water or an alterna-butter spray like 'I can't believe it's not butter'.


  1. I have some of that "Slap Yo Momma" seasoning in my spice cupboard as I write this..

    Yup a cajun from Louisiana but use Tony's every day.. ask your MIL to send you some it is awesome!

    Glad I found your blog thru Kam's giveaway! I am a new follower of yours now!

  2. Thanks for the advice! My MIL doesn't live in LA, she lives in AZ, but they sell Tony's at the grocery stores here. I have bought it before.

  3. Just found you through the #0 Days of Lists Flicker. And I had to come comment ... I LOVE hot sauce on popcorn. :D
