Homemade Popcorn

Making popcorn from scratch is easy and leaves behind all the additives and fake butter flavorings that aren't good for us. Homemade popcorn is a great snack and can be made in minutes.

Founder & Director Anthony Valentine graduated from the University of New Hampshire with a degree in Culinary Arts & Nutrition in 2013. He was later diagnosed with IGA Nephropathy (IGAN) in April 2017. On January 31st, 2019, he received a new kidney from his mother. Post-transplant life will never be the same, and neither will his diet. So, combining his diagnosis of IGAN with his degree in culinary arts and nutrition, he created Cukebook.org. Cukebook is a website that documents recipes, guides, tools, and resources designed to help people fighting chronic kidney disease.
