There are only six ingredients in this dip: crabmeat, mayo, cream cheese, chopped onion, hot sauce, and lemon juice.
My tips: chop the onion very finely . . .
. . . squeeze the room-temperature lemon over a small strainer to catch the seeds,
and bake the dip in a pretty, Pfaltzgraff oven-safe casserole dish.

I’ve never tried it with the Rice Krispies, but my family always makes them with crushed graham crackers. Makes them absolute perfection. People that don’t even like peanut butter think or peanut butter balls are amazing. Reminiscent of butterfingers and Reese’s. You should definitely give it a try. Same recipe, but swap Rice Krispies for crushed graham crackers. You won’t regret it.
I’ve been meaning to share that recipe, but keep forgetting. It’s one of my teenager’s mastered items in the kitchen and I need to get how he tweaked the cookbook recipe to make it his own.easy recipes
I’ve just made this today and it was so delicious ! I did not have egg noodles and replaced it with rice noodles but it turned out so good. I did not have bean sprouts and instead, I used red and bell peppers and added a few slices of left over steak. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe. verduras de hoja
Sleeping is awesome and I bet about 99.7% of us aren’t getting enough of it. Make your nap even more treat-like by changing your pillow case (it gives you that ‘new sheet’ feeling with less work), taking off your bra and spraying a bit of lavender or eucalyptus essential oil onto your pillow.persian food
