Crisp cool weather is on its way to our part of the world, and you know what that means? Time to get serious. Serious about FOOD. This week, Megan and Kelly talk it up about all things eating. Which one grew up on from-scratch for every meal and which one endured the agony of fish sticks? Whose recipe fail is most embarrassing? What kitchen secrets will they spill? All of that plus meal planning recommendations from the Sorta Awesome community, plus a personality-filled Awesome of the Week!

Megan’s secret to stovetop popcorn: In a pot with a lid, melt 1 T. coconut oil over medium-high heat. Add ½ c. popcorn. Put lid on pot, shake kernels so they are coated with coconut oil. Keep lid on as corn pops, occasionally shaking pot to keep bottom kernels from scorching. When popping slows to 3 seconds between pops, remove pot from heat, pour popcorn into bowl. Pour over ½ c. melted butter. Sprinkle with sea salt. Toss and enjoy!
