Here's a flavor-packed play on popcorn that will charm blue cheese lovers right out of their ballgame snack rut. The key to proper cheese distribution with a crumbly cheese like blue that doesn't take well to being grated is a quick freeze.

It’s almost time for the Academy Awards! As I gear up for some movie watching marathons, I like to pop my own corn, make my own nachos and mix up my own nuts. These are delicious when they’re still warm from the pan, and get even better throughout the movie, as the nuts soak up the curry and rosemary-infused butter.
