Coconut-Cocoa Popcorn

at

I love popcorn.It’s my vice; it’s the one snack I always need to have when I’m watching a movie, reading a book, or just looking for something to snack on. It’s light, it’s delicious, and it’s flexible! Whether you like it sweet or salty, popcorn is one of those snacks that you can have either way, and it still tastes delicious.One of my new favorite popcorn creations is a little on the sweeter side, but it satisfies that craving without going overboard, and there’s no sugar added – well, except for whatever…

Not in the sense where I will only drink coffee that was ground by blind Belgian Nuns by a mortar and pestle made solely from pure gold, but in the sense that I like my coffee how I like my…

Wine & Reason

at

I love a good bottle glass of wine. A crisp, chilled Sauvignon Blanc does the trick after a long day. Like today – today was a long day, and you can bet that my wine glass is pretty full right now. Okay, half full – but that just means there’s room for more wine!You know who else loves wine? My friend Richie. He loves wine so much, that he’s started a blog called Wine & Reason. Basically, it’s wine on a budget, paired with whatever reason you need to buy wine. Sometimes, my reason for buying wine is…
