Party Popcorn
1 of 16

This post was inspired by my good friend Naomi, who always has a bowl of homemade popcorn amped up with some great mixture of herbs and spices at the ready when her guests arrive for cocktails. I thought I'd try her technique with a few spice/herb combinations of my own, the first being marjoram -- one of the unsung heroes of the herb world, in my opinion -- and paprika. This is an easy hors d'oeuvre for when you just don't feel like whipping up a tray of canapés or an elegant cheese plate. I've added some other flavor ideas at the end of the recipe, and I'd love to hear your suggestions in the comments section!

Get the recipe.
