Wheat Crackers
AMAZING BASE RECIPE! I did a few things differently : 1) I used cold butter instead of oil. I chopped in the butter into the flour, to make a coarse crumb mixture, as if making a pastry dough. 2) I rolled it out extremely thin. The rye flour that I used was so amazing at making it NOT sticky at all, so it rolled out paper thin, almost like a tortilla. The crackers came out amazingly crispy and buttery, without the greasy texture. In fact it was a rather dry texture, but it tasted buttery and crispy. I will definitely make this recipe again...and this time I will add fresh chopped rosemary, with a bit of garlic powder and heaps of black pepper for a kick and boost.

Cheese Garlic Biscuits II
These are very good ( in terms of a simple, base cheddar garlic biscuits ). These do not taste like the Red Lotbster biscuits ( as claimed by the author ), but they are close. If you don't have Bisquick ( which seems to be the magic ingredient to all light, airy, buttery biscuits ), add a bit of pancake mix / buttermilk mix to it. I added some dried parsley to mine, to give it a prettier look. It's nice to see the bright green flakes in the biscuit as you bite into them. These are so easy to make...which makes them a keeper in my books.

Thai Crab Rolls
This is such a great party appetizer, side dish or main dish item. I am definitely keeping this in my recipe books bc it is so easy to whip up. Some of the changes I added are : 1) If fresh crab is too expensive or unavailable, canned crab, mixed with shredded " imitation " crab ( usually made of fish ) can be used. However, it is better to use fresh crab. 2) I added some finely minced green onions, to add some more flavour and variation to the colour of the mix. 3) For a different twist, you can add cayenne pepper ( to make it spicy and biting ).....or in my case, a teaspoon of Thai red curry paste for a very authentic taste. If you do add Thai red curry paste, it would be wonderful to also add some minced fresh basil leaves to the mix.
