Candied-Popcorn Gifties and a Mini Frittata Party


Okay, so it’s not that frightful, but I’m in the Christmas spirit, you guys and I just can’t STOP.

Are you more than dried up on gift ideas this year? Maybe a tight budget has you on a leash OR you can’t stand insano crowds at the malls and shops OR you secretly prefer to eat the gifts as you wrap them?

Hi, hello there, welcome.

I decided to get crafty this year (don’t gag) and make some DIY-style-candied-popcorn-gifties. (Let’s pretend all those hyphens were totally necessary.) If this tickles your fancy, peep my Tablespoon article for my step-by-step instructions!

AND, while I have you (You thought you could get away from me that quickly? Guess again.)

I’m pretty sure that I could put money on that fact that your muffin tin is desperately pleading for a change of pace in its life that doesn’t include flour or baking powder.


Yea-aaah! Make some mini frittatas and host a very merry brunch with all your best pals and watch “It’s a Wonderful Life” 259 times while experiencing the scariest coffee buzz known to humans.

As far as fillings? The world is your frittata. Just have an EGGCELLENT time.

I’m so sorry.

More peeping for your eyeballs!

    I made caramel corn last year as a gift. I unfortunately ended up with none for myself. I'm gearing up for a full day of jam making today, but as of right now the coffee isn't cutting it.

      I forgot to put in "so people will stop complaining they don't have any" after jam making

    Mini frittatas? I'm into that. I'm also a fiend for stove-top popcorn. Mm hmm!

    I need mini frittatas in my brunch & mimosa loving life. Goat cheese and spinach, nom nom nom.

    I don't even like popcorn - but I want to lick the candy sweetness off of each and every popped kernel. Then I'll give those out as gifts. I'm so sweet, aren't I?

    I really enjoyed that last sentence of yours. It made my day. And yes, my muffin tin is sick of all the muffins I've been making lately. I'm sure it will enjoy a nice batch of mini frittatas with some pancetta, tomatoes, basil, and a little bit of mozzarella. Mmmmm...

    I LOVE homemade gifts! I just posted a scone mix gift, but this looks way yummier.

    Those little frittatas are lovely! And excessive hyphens are always necessary.

    What a nice idea. It'd be nice to have some of these ready to go for breakfast grabbing.
