Honey-Apple Frozen Yogurt with Pecans

Days are getting so hot where I am, that this is the kind of stuff I've been eating for breakfast lately.  I figure it's probably more healthy than most boxed cereals, so I'm okay.

Honey-Apple Frozen Yogurt with Pecans
2 cups plain Greek yogurt
1 cup apple sauce
1/3 cup honey
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup pecan gems

Combine with a wire whisk until blended.  Freeze in ice cream maker.

Dave's Molasses Popcorn

Summertime is movie-watching time, and nothing pairs with a good movie like popcorn.  Of course you could go to the theater and eat popcorn with fake butter flavoring and oil... or you could save some money by staying home and watching something on your own screen and eating Dave's delicious, gooey, buttery Molasses Popcorn.

1/2 cup popcorn kernels
1/2 cup Butter
1 cup Brown Sugar
1 cup Molasses
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/2 Tbsp baking soda

Pop kernels of corn either in an air or oil popper. Put popped corn in a large bowl and set aside.

Combine butter, sugar, molasses and corn syrup in a medium saucepan.  Bring to a boil.  Cook to 255ºF (using candy thermometer).  Remove from heat and quickly stir in baking soda.  Pour over popped corn and stir gently until combined. Cool and serve warm or cold.
