While browsing the internet I found a group of bloggers and cooks who are cooking together from Mark Bittman's cookbook The Food Matters Cookbook. 
The Food Matters Project is about a group of people who are looking to incorporate the philosophy of eating more plants and fewer animal products and processed foods into their diets and lifestyles.

Sarah from and Kate from founded this group. 

Each week a recipe is chosen, cooked, and then blogged about. The recipe for this week was Seasoned Popcorn. The recipe is basic popped popcorn but you decide on the seasonings.

 I decided to melt some butter and garlic together and then after straining out the garlic I poured it on the popcorn and sprinkled Smoked Paprika Salt on top. It was such a nice change from my usual store bought-microwaved variety.

You can follow our progress as we cook our way through the cookbook over at

The host for this weeks recipe is Kate and you can find the recipe on her blog
