Garlic Naan

I am totally in love with this Indian style bread I found at my local Kroger. I bought the garlic version, but it comes without garlic, too. Made by International Fabulous Flats, this Naan is preservative-free. It can be prepared on a pan, the grill, the oven or over an open flame on a gas stove. Talk about versatile! Ideal to take along on a camping trip.

I tried heating it on a pan (we're talking 2-3 minutes!), then used it to make a flatbread melt and a veggie roll. Worked ideally for both.

Later on, I tossed one on the grill (again for a couple of minutes), brushed it with a little bit of olive oil and everyone raved about it.

Grand Pops Best Kettle Corn

Before I hit the road to Malice Domestic, I stocked up on road trip food. Half the fun is getting there and munching on slightly sinful foods on the way is even better. Right?

I was eager to rip into this bag of Grand Pops Best Kettle Corn. Made in Richmond, Virginia, it contains no saturated fat, no cholesterol, and no trans fat. In fact, as healthy snacks go, this treat isn't too bad because popcorn is full of fiber and apparently considered a whole grain.

Now, I have to admit that I'm a sucker for foods that are both salty and sweet. I have, however, encountered popcorn that was so cloyingly sweet that it was almost heavy.

Grand Pop has the right idea. Just a hint of salt with an occasional burst of sweetness. In a word -- delicious!
