G.H. Cretors Popped Corn

Caramel corn, caramel apples, apple pie and pumpkin spice. There’s nothing like food to get you into the season! How about a story on simple ways to enjoy fall seasonal favorites?

With a history in popcorn dating back to 1885, GH Cretors makes its caramel corn the old fashioned way: by hand, in copper kettles. Cane sugar, brown rice syrup (a non-GMO alternative to corn syrup with a lower glycemic impact) and real butter is heated over a flame and then stirred slowly by hand to develop its rich complex flavor and crunch. Using 100% natural ingredients, no artificial flavors or colors, locally grown Non-GMO popcorn, and special, “mushroom” variety popping corn resulting in wonderfully large, fluffy kernels, GH Cretors offers a healthy twist on a delectable classic snack.

I can honestly say that this is some of the best popcorn I have had. One of my favorite foods is caramel corn, and this carmel corn is absolutely delightful. I could easily have sat down and eater the entire bag in one sitting! It literally melts in my mouth. Bill’s favorite popcorn is the Cheese Corn. It was very cheesy! The Chicago Mix gave us the best of both worlds!

If you are looking for a non-GMO snack or just a great snack over, GH Cretors popped corn!

101 Breakfast & Brunch Recipes

With school getting into full swing, every family is looking for ways to start their days off with a quick & hearty breakfast. The newest photography cookbook in the bestselling Gooseberry Patch series, 101 Breakfast & Brunch Recipes, is filled with recipes that fit the bill!

With 4 chapters filled with recipes for every day, from the busiest marathon days to those lazy weekend mornings, it’s one family cooks will find themselves reaching for alongside that first cup of coffee. It’s packed with photos for each recipe, so while they may be out of eggs, they’ll never run low on inspiration.

Some of my family’s favorites have to be:  Johnny Appleseed Toast, Cereal-to-Go (this is a great snack too!), monkey bread, french toast casserole, etc.  I could go on and on and on.  Bill has been planning our weekend breakfasts for the rest of this month.  Like all of my other Gooseberry cookbooks, I love how easy the recipes are.  The ingredients are things you either have in your pantry or can easily get at the grocery store.

If you need a great cookbook, I highly recommend 101 Breakfast & Brunch Recipes!
