How to make popcorn in a fry pan in 5 minutes

Popcorn is a snack loved by all especially kids. I'm yet to meet a kid that doesn't like popcorn while watching a movie. In this recession economy, buying popcorn for a  large family has become quite expensive, so, recently I remembered my easy home-made popcorn, which is affordable and saves time too.

A biopsy revealed that a 56mm cancerous tumour had been growing inside me. At 26-years-old, the doctors believed it would be best to give me thorough treatment to ensure this was nothing more than a small setback, in what could continue to be a healthy life. Since diagnosis, I have had six cycles of chemotherapy, a double mastectomy, a lymph node clearance, and radiotherapy. It's been gruelling - but I feel blessed that my partner pushed me to go to the doctor when he did, and proud that I had the courage to do so. As of September 2016, my tumour was successfully removed. I am now back at work, and using my experience to try and help the breast cancer charity Coppa…
