I've been wanting to try this recipe for several months. I finally gave it a whirl on Friday night. I made it according to the I Heart Eating recipe except I used popcorn kernels and prepared it on the stove. I don't have a microwave so I melted the Hershey's Cinnamon Baking Chips on the stove as well. I loved the smell of popcorn and cinnamon, very calming. It tasted like a snickerdoodle cookie - not too sweet with great balance of flavors. The popcorn is a sexy treat that everyone would enjoy. I suggest feeding it to your mate for extra kisses. I highly recommend this recipe. Enjoy!

What's your favorite popcorn topping?

I promised a Facebook friend that I would make something healthy. I picked edamame, an immature soybean in a pod, because I always wanted to cook them. I gave them a little kick by using smoked paprika. I boiled my edamame instead of steaming or microwaving them. I loved the nutty smoked flavor of the bean. You will too. Enjoy!

What's your favorite bean?
