happy halloween, granny style.


Happy Halloween from Little Red Riding Hood and her Granny.

Have any awesome plans tonight?

We did, until my back went kaput on me AGAIN. I am now really feeling my part as a legit granny. Somebody bring me a walker please. With tennis balls.

So we have plans to lay low. No hooligans come to our house for candy, so we get a spooky night all to ourselves.

If you're planning on staying in tonight too, here are some of my top picks in brilliant movies and the gift of the recipe of MY granny's famous caramel popcorn.

You're welcome.

Wait Until Dark 
an Audrey Hepburn classic if there ever was one.

Dial M for Murder
Can you ever go wrong with Grace Kelly and Alfred Hitchcock?

My Granny's caramel popcorn recipe:
**Makes a huuuuuge batch**


1 1/2 cups popcorn kernals (or at least three bags of ready made, plain popcorn)
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup light Karo syrup
1/2 cup butter
1 small can sweetened condensed milk


Use a popcorn popper to make popcorn. Melt butter in a saucepan and pour in sugar and syrup. Stir until mixture starts to boil. Add milk and stir constantly while pouring. Stir often at low-medium heat. Let boil until a dollop of the mixture will hang together in a cup of cold water. Pour over popcorn and stir with wooden spoon (or your hands!) until well coated.

Eat until you have to unbutton your pants.


  1. love the clever costume...you the grandma and you baby little red riding hood. so cute!
