My Inspiration . . .

I've always had a love for baking, but it wasn't until I was in college that I had a desire to learn how to cook. In 2009, I decided to start my own cooking blog so I could access my recipes from anywhere, and ktmadeit.com was born.

I love trying new recipes and finding ways to make them healthier & happier on the hips! I love everything about food: the taste, the smells, the presentation, the experimenting, etc. I love to entertain, so I figured this was a great way to bring people together. Hope you enjoy trying out some of the recipes. Happy cooking!

Parmesan Bean Salad


{ Prep Time: 10 mins / Difficulty: Easy / Yields: 4-6 servings }

Ingredients:
1 cup shelled edamame (I used frozen edamame - just make sure to defrost before adding to salad)
1 (15-oz) can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup finely shredded parmesan cheese
2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp fresh rosemary leaves, finely chopped
1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp finely ground black pepper (8-10 grinds)

Directions:
1. Chop rosemary and parsley; (keep separate) and set aside.
2. In a large bowl, combine edamame, cannellini beans, parmesan cheese, parsley, and salt and pepper.
3. In a small non-stick skillet, heat olive oil over medium-low heat. Once oil is hot, add the garlic and cook about 1 minute. Remove from heat and add rosemary.
4. Pour garlic mixture over bean mixture, and toss evenly to coat.
5. Serve chilled.
