RECIPE: BUFFALO WING POPCORN

* Open up your Next Issue app to find the other game-day dishes!

bon-appetit-buffalo-popcorn

Ingredients

  • Nonstick vegetable oil spray
  • 8 cups popped plain popcorn (from 1/2 cup kernels)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup Frank’s Red Hot Original sauce
  • 3 tbsp. unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Line rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Lightly coat parchment and a large bowl with nonstick spray; add popcorn to bowl, and set baking sheet aside.

2. Bring sugar and 1/4 cup water to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring to dissolve sugar. Boil, swirling pan occasionally, until caramel is a deep amber color, 10-12 minutes.

3. Remove from heat; stir  in hot sauce and butter (mixture will bubble vigorously). Return to a boil and cook another 3 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in salt baking soda, and cayenne. Working quickly (and carefully—caramel will be hot), pour caramel mixture over popcorn and toss to coat.

4. Spread out popcorn on prepared baking sheet and bake, tossing once, until dry, 15-20 minutes. Let cool.

5. Do Ahead: Popcorn can be made 4 hours ahead. Store airtight at room temperature to keep out moisture.

Seahawks’ Richard Sherman writes ‘trillest’ Sports Illustrated cover story of all time


Richard Sherman writes “It’s About More Than Me.”

February 2nd issue of Sports Illustrated available in Next Issue Thursday, January 27th.

Ever since Richard Sherman’s infamous rant at the 2013 NFC Championship (above), the Seahawks cornerback has made a name for himself as a lover of big plays, a notorious trash-talker, and one of the NFL’s most divisive players.

With the Seahawks’ second straight Superbowl this weekend, Sports Illustrated knew Sherman would jump at the chance to ignite some more controversy. Right? Not totally. In a surprise turn of events, the “best corner in the game” actually took some convincing.

Sherman eventually agreed to star on the Superbowl-week cover and to write the cover story himself—but only on two conditions.

sherman-sports-illustrated

1) The whole “Legion of Boom (the Seahawks starting secondary) had to be included—five major contributors on the cover and the rest of the defensive backfield inside.

2) No Seahawks gear. The guys wanted to take this photoshoot as an opportunity to fully express themselves. Hence, the “trillness.”

So, what can you expect from this self-penned story?

How Sherman feels heading back to the biggest stage in the game, how he depends on his brothers in the Legion of Boom, healthy dissing on NFL management, and a big announcement of his own.

Read the full story in the February 2nd issue of Sports Illustrated, available in your Next Issue app 1/29.

Twelve must-reads for travel, the home, and making a home on the road


next issue guest curator jennifer moodyI’m Jennifer, a road warrior from Fort Worth Texas. Although I spend over 200 days a year on the road and absolutely LOVE to travel, I’m also passionate about restoring my 1924 Craftsman bungalow, baking, and devoting time to my volunteer work. Jetsetter’s Homestead is my daily chronicle of travel-life balance—from surviving chain hotel rooms, to planning how to use all those frequent flyer miles, to just whipping up a quick meal when I’m settled at home.

Here are a few of my recent finds for all areas of my life—whether traveling, at home, or that grey area in-between.

4 must-dos (and must-reads) for MLK weekend


Martin Luther King Jr.

This weekend, we celebrate one of our country’s greatest leaders in the fight for equality. In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. on what would have been his 86th birthday, we’ve compiled a list of musts for your weekend, from ways to pay tribute, to ways to give back, to some extra #WeekendReads for those of us lucky enough to be spending Monday away from work.

Enjoy!

1) See the movie everyone is raving about. “Selma,” the first major motion picture to look closely at the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr.’s life, recently scored Golden Globes nods in the best actor, director and motion picture drama categories. Learn how director Ava DuVernay made one of the most important films of the year, then hit the theaters to see it for yourself.

2) Give back to your own community. Why not honor the legacy of MLK by making a difference? Money has plenty of volunteer opportunities for Monday, January 19th.

3) Learn more about the legend himself. Sometimes it’s a little too easy to stray from the meaning behind a day off work. Educate yourself with TIME’s report on MLK as a child, along with Sports Illustrated’s video on how the NBA (and the world) would be different without Dr. King’s efforts.

4) Enjoy some long reads for your long weekend. Just head to this week’s #WeekendReads and open up your Next Issue app to get started.
