Perfect Popcorn Every Time. Your Kernels Will Be Entitled To Higher Office

An hour before popping corn (freshly popped is always the best), sprinkle a little warm water on the kernels. Or keep our popcorn kernels in the freezer. Either way -- warm water or freezer -- your popcorn will be fluffier and have fewer
duds.

A COMFORTING CUP FOR THE COMMON COLD

Prepare a cup of healing tea by steeping equal parts of cinnamon, sage, and bay leaves in hot water.

Cinnamon has antibacterial properties, sage works as a natural expectorant and bay leaves help clear congestion. Steep for five minutes, strain, and just before drinking, add one tablespoon lemon juice.

Sweeten with a little honey if you desire. Take a deep breath and exhale joyously. Skaal.
