Usually, like most people, my movie go-to snack is popcorn.  Just the smell from the theater is all I need. I’ve actually been known to watch movies just so I can eat popcorn. (The Mister is a die-hard Star Wars fan whereas I could care less – but it’s all good, I have popcorn!)

But as we all know, this Sunday isn’t just any old movie night, it’s the Oscars. And a celebration this big deserves an upgrade to your typical everyday popcorn.

The great thing about popcorn, is that you can add just about any flavour to it – sweet, savoury, it doesn’t matter, it’ll still be amazing!

Personally, I like my popcorn with a little kick! (My tolerance for spicy has definitely gone up over the past few years.) but I’m also a sucker for anything with cinnamon!

So today, I will be sharing with you, my favourite popcorn recipes – one sweet, one savoury.
