Crispy Edamame
Oh yeah! I used shelled edamame -- since I buy the big bags at Costco -- and steamed them 3 minutes then shelled them. I towel-dried them, drizzled a tablespoon of oil on them, and then grated parmesan on top with my rotary grater. Using my hands, I tossed them with a pinch of kosher salt until they were all coated well. Then I added more cheese! I didn't measure the cheese, though... I just coated every bean. Then I cooked them for 10 minutes, stirred them, and five minutes more. The cheese is super crunchy and delicious. The bean stays chewy on the inside, so they are like crispy french-fries by comparison.

Ice Cream Sandwich Cake
It went fast at the cookout I brought it to! The hot fudge sauce doesn't pour very easily, and so the final layer didn't spread very well. I covered it with foil and the entire top layer stuck to the foil! *Fortunately* I had decided to put the top layer of whipped topping on right before serving. So I scraped all the fudge and caramel off the foil, spread it in an unattractive layer on top, then covered it all with whipped cream, and then red-white-and-blue sprinkles for Memorial Day! Huge hit.

Party Pinwheels
Maybe one packet can be too salty, but if you add in enough other ingredients it really mellows it out. I added all the ingredients directly into the blender to create one cohesive, spreadable "dip" (it is, by the way, fantastic as a dip, too). By blending it so smoothly it covered more than only four tortillas. I added a whole can of drained corn, a whole can of rinsed/drained black beans, and a teaspoon or more of cumin to warm up the flavor (not enough to make it spicy, though). These things disappeared and I was asked multiple times for the recipe. Really, though, stir in whatever you like, and don't be afraid to blend it on medium speed. It really distributed all the flavors well.
