Crab Rangoon Dip


When I spotted this Crab Rangoon Dip over at Bake Your Day last year, I knew I had to try it. It took me a good while but I finally tried it out. It was delicious! I did have a few small tweaks, like baking the chips to save time rather than frying them.

If you have the time and patience, I would recommend frying the chips for more flavor and crisp. If you bake them to save calories or time, please note that you have to watch them very closely in the oven. They go from being lightly browned to totally burnt in a matter of seconds.


Crab Rangoon Dip
Makes many servings

  • 24 won ton wrappers, cut into 1-inch strips
  • Canola oil, for frying
  • 8 ounces (1 block) 1/3-less fat cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup light sour cream
  • 6 ounces lump crab meat (I used imitation crab meat)
  • 1 Tbs. honey
  • 1 tsp. soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 green onions, sliced, optional 
  • (I also added very finely diced red onion, a few tablespoons worth)

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut won ton wrappers into 1-inch strips.

2. Stir cream cheese and sour cream together in a large bowl. Add crab meat, honey, soy sauce, garlic powder, sugar and green onions. Transfer to a baking dish and bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes, until the dip is warm though.

3. Add 1-2 inches of canola oil to a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Fry the won ton strips in batches for 1-2 minutes each, until lightly browned and crispy. Transfer to a paper towel-lined baking sheet to cool. Serve with the dip.

Cassie's Notes:
Alternately, you can bake the won ton wrappers for a healthier option. Lightly spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray and bake at 375 degrees until lightly browned and crispy.

Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad

This tasty Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad has a secret ingredient that gives the texture of the salad a wonderfully creamy texture. What is it ? Freshly whipped cream folded into the chicken, almond and grape salad. It works and it is wonderful.

Serve on a bed of curly lettuce, with crackers or on a croissant. Enjoy!


Chicken Doritos Casserole

I'm not even gonna pretend that this anything but what I call "Trash Food." Every once in a while trash food is the best kind of food, comforting and totally delicious. Chicken Doritos Casserole fits that description perfectly. Enjoy!


Stick of Butter Rice

This delicious side dish was a hit at my house. The raving over this recipe was intense. To put it mildly, everyone loved it.

Personally, I felt that the amount of butter could be cut down a bit in this recipe. I'll leave that up to you guys to decide what you think is best. I think I would go with 1/3 cup and see how that goes next time around. If you have unsalted butter I'd also recommend that you go with that, instead of the standard salted butter. Between the condensed soup and broth, it can get a bit salty.

Note that for this recipe you want to use standard white rice, not instant rice. Enjoy!


Old Fashioned Ham Salad

Besides making ham and pineapple sandwiches, Ham Salad is my favorite way to use up leftover ham. For a delicious treat, serve this Ham Salad with butter crackers and slices of Swiss cheese. It is crazy delicious. Enjoy!

Cheesy Shrimp Ciabatta

For out last get together I made this delicious Cheesy Shrimp Ciabatta. This is an appetizer that shrimp fans will love. In our family this is one of our most favorite recipes. It's so delicious!

You can go with a baguette instead if you would like bite sized portions, but it is hard to beat a fresh loaf of ciabatta bread. The baguette slices will get much crunchier so if you prefer that mouth feel, you can go with a baguette. A fresh French bread would also work great. Enjoy!


Moist Cinnamon Streusel Pumpkin Coffee Cake

Moist and so flavorful, this Pumpkin Coffee Cake can be enjoyed year round and is particularly good with a cup of coffee.



A light glaze decorates the top of the coffee cake, along with a sprinkling of pecans.


Enjoy!

Cheeseburger Meatloaf (Keto/Low Carb)

Would you like to hear what I discovered yesterday? Well, I realized I had accidentally turned off comments on the blog for the past two months. Yikes!

About two months ago I was getting hit with a spam comment barrage so I had turned off comments for the evening, fully planning on turning them back on the next day. Whoops! Apparently I totally forgot. My apologies.


Onto the meatloaf. You get a pretty substantial serving here at only two carbs, leaving you lots of room for vegetables on the side to make up the majority of the carb count in your meal.

Of course, it doesn't have the exact texture of a traditional meatloaf, but I found it to be a great substitute. It is not tough and the diced onion lends some added texture, flavor and moisture. I would recommend going for a fresh onion for this as opposed to onion powder for this reason.


I had this with a sugar free ketchup. Tasty and even the kids loved it, onions and all. Enjoy!

Glazed Kielbasa Pineapple Bites

I found these tasty Glazed Kielbasa Bites at Real Housemoms a few weeks back. They are incredibly quick to put together and bake. If you are feeding a large crowd go ahead and double the amount of kielbasa & pineapple. The sauce should be enough even if you double the main ingredients.
