Alicia's Awesome Crab Rangoon

Alicia's Awesome Crab Rangoon
I invented this recipe many years ago… when I was in high school. I loved eating crab rangoon at Asian restaurants, and of course there were none of those in my hometown of under 1,000. Like a lot of recipes I come up with, this one was invented out of necessity. And it was awesome . I’ve only tweaked it a little here and there, and it just gets better every time. Since the crab in the filling is already cooked, I’ve even made the filling and served it as crab dip. You can also make these ahead of time and freeze them uncooked. Here’s the details… And here’s the recipe… Alicia’s Awesome Crab Rangoon 1 12 oz package imitation crab meat (leg or flake style), chopped 1 8 oz package cream cheese, softened 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger 1/4 teaspoon paprika 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice 2 green onions, chopped wonton wrappers Mix together all ingredients except wontons.

Korean BBQ Tacos Kalbi Taco (actual size at 1440×900 MacBook Pro resolution) Korean BBQ tacos have been a street food phenomenon since LA’s Kogi BBQ trucks started drawing hundreds of hungry Angelenos to street corners around Southern California. Kogi’s popularity spawned a blatant knock-off, inspired others to start their own mobile food ventures, and compelled other Korean establishments to add Korean tacos to their menus, such as SF’s Seoul on Wheels, Namu, and John’s Snack and Deli, and NY’s Seoul Station). For food bloggers, creating our own version of the dish we don’t have easy access to becomes a fun little project. Seoul on Wheels’ Korean tacos at Oakland’s Eat Real Fest 2009.

Crab Rangoon Recipe | Free Online Recipes I eat Crab Rangoons nearly every time I go to the buffet – they are definitely one of my favorite things to eat there. One problem I have is the crab Rangoons at some buffets don’t even have crab in them, just cream cheese. In my honest opinion they still taste good with just cream cheese and green onions though but the buffets shouldn’t have them labeled as “Crab Rangoon” if there is no crab in them. So if you don’t eat seafood or you don’t like crab meat then just leave it out. Crab Rangoons are fairly easy to make, if you’re making a large batch taking time to stuff and fold them all might take awhile.

Tomato Basil Pizza The other day, I was looking at the overload of tomatoes that I bought as the season was winding down as the end of summer nears. But I realized that I was being gradually shoved out of my small kitchen by them, so I oven-roasted the louts with garlic and herbs to reclaim a few precious inches back of kitchen counter space. Yet when they were finished, I looked in my refrigerator, and there wasn’t any room in there either. So I was left holding a bowl of roasted tomatoes that needed to get used up. Coincidentally, I also had a round of yeasted dough in my refrigerator from a batch of recipe testing that hadn’t found its meaning as something else yet—as experimental leftovers are want to do. So I took it out, which made room for the tomatoes – but then I realized that was defeating the purpose, so I decide to use both of them. I’ve oven-roasted plenty of tomatoes in my lifetime, especially when I need to pull and extract as much flavor as I can from less-than-exemplary specimens. Pesto
