My family has a tradition every year of having popcorn and fudge on New Year's Eve. We always have microwave popcorn. Well this year I decided that microwave popcorn was just not good enough. No more film stuck to the roof of my mouth thank you! So I got on the google machine and looked at about a gazillion recipes and tutorials for stove top popcorn. I made 2 big batches a couple days before New Years Eve (and an obscene amount since then!) to test it out and figured out how to make it perfect! It was surprisingly easy. I will never use microwave popcorn again!

New years day at my house growing up meant the Bitner family party and hoppin john. We have hoppin john every single year. Hoppin john is a black eyed pea, carrot, bacon delight! It traditionally is made with a ham hock but my mom always put bacon in it. You put it over rice and it is so good! They make it onthe south and it is supposed to bring you good luck! Who doesn't need a little lucky charm every once in a while? Oh it sounds wonderful right now! What traditions do you have on New Years Day?
