20130612-150102 Hey kids! We are back, had to step away for a few days... you know how it goes. The Polska Popcorn Princess strikes again, this time with basil infused olive oil. Oh my, add a little of that to you air popped, non-GMO, organic maize with a touch of mineral salt and you'll be munching up a guilt-free storm in no time. I'm working on getting the PPP to regularly blog for THE GOODS, she is quite the popcorn aficionado plus has a fitness trick or two up her pant leg. Cross your fingers all. Check out the PPP's other raved about recipes Dilly Kaz Corn and Lemon Poppy Seed. And yes I'm working on infusing some olive oil myself and will share once I've got it down.

LL + Gosi Always Ugh I love my Gosi Bear, she hosted date night this week and after enjoying the delicious dahl she made from scratch, she then magically whipped up an amazing sweet popcorn. Move over Buckie's lemon poppy seed loaf, this is all I'll ever need. Lemon Poppy Corn 1/4 cup organic popping corn 1-2 tbsp sweetener - i.e. xylitol, coconut sugar 1 tbsp olive oil 1 lemon juice and zest (2 tbsp juice) 1 tbsp poppy seeds dash mineral salt Mix oil, sweetener, juice and zest in small bowl. Air pop the popcorn and toss with zesty lemon goodness and sprinkle poppy seeds and a touch of mineral salt. For more Polska popcorn magic, see Gosi's Dilly Kaz Corn recipe. It's also crazy delicious, guilt-free.

Photo Cred Lisa Who knew! You can sprout organic popping corn, I mean it makes sense it just didn't occur to me until I saw these guys at Sorauren Farmer's Market on Monday evening. The Kind Organics booth had a wide variety of sprouts and greens as usual but these little fellas caught my attention. Now I'm not even sure that I like them, they're a touch weird, they start off bland and a bit grassy and then your mouth fills with that sweet taste you only know if you've had wheatgrass juice or too much stevia. They are really cool looking, just almost too sweet if you can imagine. I'm going to toss them in the dehydrator and see if I can make a smoothie sweetener out of the dried powder. If it works you'll hear from me and if not... let's just pretend this post never happened.
