Remember a few days ago when I said the next few weeks on this here website were going to be a mix of super easy recipes and super fancy recipes? Welcome to the fancy part…I give you these very dramatic, very scrumptious, very holiday-colored crab towers! And I know, they LOOK all complicated, but remember this is me you are talking to, and I don’t do complicated. So if you are looking for a show-stopper first course for your holiday table, look no further and let’s make them!
Crab cakes are an absolute favorite in my house, and not just any old crab cake. Nope, we roll with potato chip crab cakes, which swap out the usual bread crumb filler for crushed potato chips. And since I have flipped many a crab cake when cooking in a frying pan only to have it break apart into crab cake crumbles, this recipe calls for baking them in the oven. No flipping required.
So if you are looking for a good, basic, delicious crab cake recipe with a little pizzazz, look no further because you have found it. Let’s make it!
Well, my battle of the burgers has been going on for a week now…first there was the tavern burger, and then there was the diner burger. And I know how we all do love a good hamburger, no matter what your preference is on how it’s prepared. But every once in a while it’s good to shake things up a bit burger-wise, and for that reason (along with the seafood deliciousness) I now present….the crab cake burger!
Which is exactly what you hope and dream it is – a tender on the inside, crispy on the outside, slathered in tartar sauce crab cake, nestled onto a soft roll and ready for you to take that first scrumptious bite. Ready to rock your burger world? Let’s make it!
So, crab cake muffins. If you have been reading Framed Cooks for any amount of time you are used to the fact that I will muffin-ize pretty much anything. French toast. Meatloaf. CINNAMON ROLLS. I have a recipe for cheeseburger muffins lurking in my pile of things I need to tell you about. So I guess it was only a matter of time before I took one of the Southern husband’s Very Favorite Things and cooked it up for him in muffin form. Tender on the inside, crispy on the outside crab cake muffins. Let’s make them!
I wrote this recipe for creamy, dreamy avocado coconut crab soup when the Southern husband and I first started the Whole 30 last summer, but even if it didn’t have All The Healthy Things in it, it would still make my top ten soup list because it is both so dang delicious AND it is ready in about ten minutes. Yep. You are five minutes away from a bowl of that deliciousness you are looking at up there, and how perfect is that? And when you put that together with the healthy personality of this soup…well, what are we waiting for? Let’s make it!
I love sushi. There’s something so fresh and delicious and healthy about it – it’s the very definition of good and good for you. And while I am usually up for trying to recreate my restaurant favorites in my own kitchen, there’s something about making sushi rolls that I just can’t wrap my mind around. So I decided to tackle that favorite of all favorites, the California roll…but in salad form. Thereby saving myself and the Southern husband from a meltdown in the kitchen from me trying to roll up all the delicious ingredients in seaweed paper. That sound you just heard was the Southern husband heaving a giant sigh of relief.
