Last weekend Kara and I went, along with my roommate Alana, Kara’s friends, and our Moms, to this place in Mount Prospect called Dave’s Specialty Foods. We got a big enough group together so that we could have a private session with Dave. Dave cooked while we ate and drank. A perfect situation. It was a blast!!
Since we were heading to the burbs for Dave’s anyway, Alana and I went to Kara and Cliff’s so that Alana could see their new digs. While we were there, Alana joined us as guest blogger for the day and she showed us a yummy snack.
At our apartment we eat TONS of popcorn. Mostly in the form of Skinny Pop (absolute fave), but sometimes we’ll make homemade too. Alana made this popcorn a couple months ago and we both loved it! It’s so easy to make and it’s a great snack! Thanks for sharing your recipe and joining in our LLP antics girl!
4 cups popped popcorn
oil for cooking popcorn
¼ stick unsalted butter
3 tablespoons fresh dill, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, whole
1 cup parmesan cheese, finely shredded
In a medium skillet over medium heat, heat the butter. When it’s starting to melt, add 2 cloves or garlic, stirring around while the butter melts completely. Cook the garlic, just until fragrant, then discard the cloves and set infused butter aside.
In a large bowl add popped popcorn, dill, and parmesan cheese. Pour the melted butter on top and put the lid on top of the bowl. Shake until combined then season with salt.
