Parmesan Popcorn with Rosemary Butter


It’s Saturday night, which equals movie night at our house. We love going to the theater to watch movies and as well as watching them at home. Dennis and I have enjoyed going to the movies since we started dating. For our first date, we went to see Friday the 13th, Part 3 in 3D. I am not one for scary movies, but I went because I thought Dennis was so handsome and I wasn’t going to pass up the opportunity to go out with him when he asked. He told me it was his strategy to take me to a scary movie so I would snuggle up closely to him and hold his hand. That first date was almost 35 years ago.

I am someone who needs a bowl of popcorn when I’m watching a good movie. Tonight, I decided to make popcorn with rosemary butter drizzled in and freshly grated parmesan sprinkled over the top. I also added about two teaspoons of sea salt to the popcorn.


Tonight, we’re going to watch Shot Caller. Looks like an action/suspense flick. It’s a pre-theater release on DirecTV. Last night we enjoyed going to the Arclight Theater to see Atomic Blonde staring Charlize Theron. She was fabulous, and did all of her own stunts. I highly recommend heading to the theater to check that one out.


  • 1 cup popcorn kernels
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 teaspoons dried rosemary
  • 3 tablespoons shredded parmesan
  • 1-2 teaspoons sea salt


  1. Heat oil in large kettle.
  2. Pour kernels into pot, put the lid on and cook on high until the kernels have all popped.
  3. Place popped corn into a large bowl.
  4. Melt butter and rosemary together in small saucepan and pour over popcorn.
  5. Add salt.
  6. Grate parmesan and add to popcorn.
  7. Mix together.


Until next time, Kris

I love when my house is filled with people, having friends and family over for a meal feeds my soul. There is nothing I enjoy more than preparing for a dinner party, a holiday dinner, or a book club meeting when it's my turn to host ... If I could, I would own a Bed and Breakfast! This would ensure I'd always have someone to prepare a meal for. Being with others and sharing my table is what I look forward to most. I was born in Wisconsin and after I got married in 1987, my husband and I moved west for his job. He had just graduated college and we were married a couple months later. An interesting tidbit about me is that I never cooked a meal before I got married. I taught myself how to cook and found that I really enjoyed it. One of the first meals I made after we were married was a shrimp pasta dish. I made this for myself when my husband was on business travel and I had so much fun inventing this meal - this was the start of my love of cooking. I probably won't be posting much on shrimp dishes, since I am now allergic. Big bummer! I was allergic to lobster, and then had an issue with scallops, so just never had a shrimp after the scallop incident. Why couldn't I be allergic to something less enjoyable?! My favorite celebrity chefs are Ina Garten and The Pioneer Woman. I hope you enjoy my blog!

  1. Hello from your old neighbor on Pueblo Vista Lane – I still think you’re one of the cutest couples I’ve ever met!! I discovered your blog a short time ago and was so excited to have found you. You’ve always been an amazing cook – we shared some delicious meals in your home! Love your blog, love your recipes, love hearing about Dennis and Kylie (remember Kyle’s first babysitter?!! Heehee). Sending you cyber hugs from the Owens’ family!


    1. Hi Debby! So great to hear from you! Every once in awhile, I drive past our old houses. We had such great times 😊. Remember Elmo? A few weeks ago, I was trying to think of how old Taylor is. He must be at least 21, maybe 22 new? Sending big cyber hugs to you as well! I miss you. 😊. I’m glad you are enjoying my blog. I would love to write a cookbook one day.


      1. Hi again, Kris – I would absolutely love it if you wrote a cookbook! You really should do it. If you have time to get caught up, my email is (I’m not on FB). I have sooooo much to tell you about the family but don’t want to bore your readers…LOL. It’s so great to reconnect with you!
        P. S. My apologies to Kylie for calling her “Kyle” in my last comment (stupid autocorrect!).
