These are even better w/a hint of liquid smoke and sprinkle of cinnamon & sugar! YUMMERS!

Had the first handful from the garden, and wanted to fix them quickly -- only subbed slivered almonds for the pecans. Just perfect ! Gathered more for DD's BD dinner, and 15 y/o twins were so taken, they went out to the garden and tried them raw ! This will be summer-time frequent side ! Thanks for posting, Lainey

It was my first time trying sugar snap peas. I think it's not really my thing. Mine were a little bit bitter. I don't know if it's like that usually. But combined to the butter and pecan, that's really good. They were not all bitter. I'd try this recipe with snow peas. Thanks Lainey :) Made for Photo tag
