When Molly clued me in that you can make microwave popcorn without a packet of "microwave popcorn," I was amazed. What a cool idea!
Then, the more I thought about it, I became a bit frustrated. Why didn't I know about this before??? It's so simple. It's so easy. And it actually makes a lot of sense. How did those commercial microwave popcorn brands have me so convinced?
All you need is a paper bag (which can be used many times), a piece of tape, popcorn kernels, and of course, a microwave. The rest of the directions are here.
