Most of us have been stuck at home for months now watching everything we can find on Netflix. There’s nothing like getting comfy on the sofa with a bowl of popcorn and a good movie. You might want to get creative and give your movie nights a popcorn upgrade.
Toss popcorn with finely grated Parmesan, a sprinkling of Italian seasoning and red pepper flakes.
Drizzle lightly buttered popcorn with a small amount of sesame oil, then sprinkle with sesame seeds and crushed seaweed snacks.

5 Ways To Use A Vegetable Peeler
The humble vegetable peeler has hidden talents.
Easily Peel Fruit: To peel soft fruits and vegetables, like tomatoes and peaches, you usually have to briefly dunk them into boiling water. Using a good vegetable peeler is so much easier and faster. Look for peelers with serrated blades for the best results and select not-too-ripe fruit.
Shaved Cheese: Give salads, pastas and roasted vegetables a restaurant-style finish by garnishing with generous amounts of shaved Parmesan or pecorino romano cheese.
Vegetable Pasta: Shave long strips of zucchini, carrots (even sweet potatoes and squash) to transform them into pasta substitutes. Serve raw or briefly steamed with your favorite sauce, or toss with a vinaigrette for a fresh and nutritious salad.
Spreadable Butter: Is there anything worse than trying to butter toast or bread with rock hard butter straight from the fridge? Use a vegetable peeler to scrape off thin and perfectly spreadable butter ribbons.
Chocolate Curls: Peel the edge of a slightly softened chunk of chocolate to create curls, or the flat surface of very cold chocolate to make shavings. Keep your creations in the freezer and use to garnish cakes, pies, puddings and seasonal fruit.
