Homemade Popcorn Maker
Popcorn has a reputation as an unhealthy snack, but when eaten in moderation, it actually has some health benefits. Popcorn contains whole grains that are essential for a balanced diet. With a homemade popcorn popper, you can enjoy delicious popcorn time and time again without having to worry about the unhealthy oils and flavorings you find in microwave popcorn.
The original slow cooker, a crockpot is a large electric cooking pot used to cook stews and other dishes. When you slow cook your food, it distributes flavors more evenly. And best of all, crockpots are safe. In fact, you can leave your crockpot unattended all day. Toss your ingredients into the crock-pot before work. When you come home you should have a ready-to-serve meal.
