About this Cook
I haven't been cooking for very long, I am getting better each day though! I love finding new recipes to try.

Microwave Popcorn
I have tried this 2 times now and it has worked out fabulously! To all of the reviewers and readers who say that the bottom of the bag has blown out on them or that there were too many unpopped kernels, I would like to offer you some advice to fixing these problems. First, I sprayed one bag with canola oil and inserted it into another brown bag that hadn't been sprayed (be sure to spray the bag BEFORE putting it inside the non-sprayed one!). This seemed to help from the bag becoming too greasy and blowing out on the bottom. Second, I found that if you pause the microwave when the bag is getting 75% full and empty the popped kernels into a bowl then putting the bag back into the microwave for the remaining time, that helps to pop almost all of the kernels. Hope this helps those out there who have had trouble with making this popcorn! :)

Awesome Broccoli-Cheese Casserole
Exceptional! I followed the recipe to a T except that I did not add onions, I am not an onion fan :P Turned out great! I baked for 45 minutes and all seemed to be well cooked and the cheese was melted perfectly! I will definitely make this dish again!
