Spicy Dreams

Before I head to the garden for a fun-filled weekend of digging and planting, I thought I'd share with you some spicy deliciousness I recently found on Pinterest.

At least I think they were on Pinterest.

As usual, I wrote the recipes for these 4 different popcorn spice blends, but failed to write the source. I also didn't "pin" the recipes, so they may not have come from there at all.

I really don't know as much as I think I do, but I'd appreciate it if ya didn't tell the family.

They think I'm a genius.

And I can live with that teensy-weensy little lie.☺

For my favorite popcorn recipe, go here. Omit the salt if using a seasoning blend; you can always add more later.

~Italian Blend~

1/4 c. canned Parmesan cheese
1/2 t. dried oregano
1/2 t. sea salt
1/4 t. black pepper
1/4 t. crushed red pepper

~Cajun Blend~

2 t. paprika
1 t. onion powder
1 t. garlic powder
2 Tb. sea salt
1/2 t. black pepper
1 pinch cayenne pepper

~Southwestern Blend~

1-1/2 t. chili powder
1 Tb. paprika
1 Tb. ground cumin
2 Tb. sea salt

~Curry Blend~

1 Tb. curry powder
2 Tb. sea salt
1 t. turmeric
1 pinch cayenne pepper

Mix and store in shaker style containers. Shake on popped corn. These would be great on pasta, rice, baked potatoes, or different meats too.

I wish I could tell you which was my favorite, but it was too close to call. I loved them all.

In order to declare a true winner however, I should probably taste these again tomorrow.

And Saturday.

Maybe Sunday...☺
