Crunchy Edamame Recipe

crunchy-edamame-recipe

Are you a couch snacker like me? When I sit with my hubby at night to watch TV I love to snack on crunchy food. The thing is that finding something healthy is not easy. Now my problems have been solved with this easy Crunchy Edamame Recipe. 4 Ingredients and a sheet pan is all it takes to make these itty bitty delicious concoctions.

If you’re not familiar with Edamame, they are just green soybeans sold frozen or refrigerated either in pods or shelled. Edamame is usually boiled with water and eaten at Japanese restaurants. Due to their high levels of Fiber and Protein I buy them regularly. My girls LOVE THEM, when they don’t want to eat chicken or beef I give them edamame and they are super happy. They prefer them in pods so they can peel the shell themselves.

This Crunchy Edamame Recipe allows me to snack at night while fitting in my jeans the next day. Since they are baked and not fried it makes a very big difference. You can serve them as toppings on a salad instead of croutons, as a crunchy appetizer with cocktails or simply as an after school snack for the kids.

Easy Pumpkin Muffins With Orange Maple Glaze

pumpkin mini muffins

Have you ever had a little craving for something spicy, sweet and citrusy at the same time? These Easy Pumpkin Muffins With Orange Maple Glaze will surely hit the spot! I bet after you have one you won’t be able to stop. They are tiny, spongy and packed in with a lot of flavor. There’s chocolate chips in each one to trigger those “happy” feelings in your brain.

Now that fall is here, the leaves are falling, the weather is cooler (well anywhere but here in Miami anyways). Pumpkin is something that I long for. It has this rich complex flavor accompanied with spices that I makes me want to cook everything. From the savory soups to decadent desserts. I even buy the Pumpkin spiced candles to fill my home with this intoxicating aroma.

These Easy Pumpkin Muffins are great by themselves but add the Orange Maple Glaze and it’s perfection in a single bite. Who can resist a basket of freshly baked muffins? If you’re hosting a brunch or a breakfast I promise you they will be a hit. They are also great as an afternoon snack with coffee or tea. Another great idea is to give them out as presents to neighbors, new parents or even the in laws!
