Popcorn and a Book

As we head into the colder months, what better way to spend the time than snuggling up with the ones we love — while sharing a big bowl of popcorn and a good book!

Spread a blanket on the floor, cozy up in a warm bed or build a reading fort of your own creation. Pick an old favorite or find a new book to explore.

I’ve included some cozy reading suggestions and my absolute favorite popcorn recipe below.

Yummy things first! POPCORN!

I came across this popcorn recipe years ago through a friend. This is fabulous savory popcorn to make year-round.

You will need:

  • A big bowl of plain prepared popcorn
  • Melted butter (anywhere from half a stick to whole stick, depending on your butter preference)
  • Old Bay seasoning
  • Nutritional yeast seasoning (dairy-free with cheese-like flavor — trust me, this is a game-changer!)


Once the popcorn is popped using the desired method, pour the melted butter all over. Next, sprinkle equal parts Old Bay seasoning and nutritional yeast all over the popcorn. Start light until you find a flavor level you enjoy. I’m a bit heavy-handed in my preference.

That’s it! Give the bowl a good shimmy-shake, then dive in and enjoy! Just writing up this post has me craving this delicious snack.
