Have a spooky good time making popcorn ball spiders!

Fall time is fun time and I love looking for fun ideas to do with my family.  These popcorn spiders are simple and fun to make!  They make great party favors and are easy to create with your children.  Of course they should always be supervised.

I used this simple recipe I found on chow.com

If you use less popcorn, you can just reduce your ingredient portions.  I used 3 cups of popcorn, so I just divided all of my ingredients by 3.

To make the color of my spiders, I used both green and red food coloring and put a few drops of each in the bowl after applying  the binding ingredient and mixing it thoroughly.

To form my ball I used my Goodcook.com Popcorn baller.  It is so simple to use and makes great popcorn balls!  It also keeps my hands from getting sticky!

Makin Bacon with my GoodCook.com Bacon Press

I have always been jealous when I see people with flat bacon and wondered why mine always curled up when  I made it.  Now I know the secret, thanks to Goodcook.



I was recently sent the bacon press to review and I love it!  It is so simple to use and made perfect bacon for my family!  It felt very comfortable in my hand and wasn't too heavy to hold. I simply laid my bacon on my heated Goodcook Cast Iron Grill pan, and set the bacon press on top. I turned my bacon once to cook both sides.   The result was perfect bacon!
