Baked Maryland Lump Crab Cakes
I'm giving this recipe 5 stars because this is the first recipe for crab cakes I've found that is baked. Who doesn't love the flavor of a pan fried cake? But the calories and fat make it a meal that I just can't feel good about making for dinner. This is a great compromise. The crabcakes are tasty (you can spice them up if you like) and I felt as if I wasn't compromising for a lo-fat dinner. I made a simple buttermilk dill sauce which the kids loved on top, so overall this was a winner. Here are the revisions I made and the dill sauce recipe... I split the egg between two regular eggs and 1/4 cup egg beaters. You really do need a binding agent. I doubled the bread crumbs just so that it would stay together better. I chilled the mixture in a bowl and then used an ice cream scoop to put on the baking sheet. I think the time in the fridge helps the breadcrumbs expand and the whole mixture thicken enough to stay together. Also, watch the time, it could easily get dried out. I probably did 12 minutes one side and mabe 8 the other side. That's all the change I made. They were good but I might add some more spices next time. As for the buttermilk Dill sauce: 1 cup mayonnaise 1/4 cup buttermilk 1 tsp. dried dill 1.5 tsp. dried parsley leaves 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice 1 garlic clove, minced, add some lemon zest if you have it I'll add this to my recipe box and anytime crab meat is on sale it will be on my table!

Portuguese Steamed Clams
Growing up just 8 minutes from Rhode Island I had to try this recipe...I grew up with food like this. We just finished dinner and it was a clear thumbs up with everyone in my family. (even my picky 6 year old). The broth was so tasty and crusty bread was great to dip into it. The best was so easy that my 10 year old could have made this recipe by himself. Quick, Easy and what a treat. What could be better than that?

Bar Cookies from Cake Mix
I'm constantly baking for my church's bake sales and coffee hours and I have little time to spare. I used this great basic recipe to bake for our latest bake sale. I figured I had some cake mixes on hand and it was quick and easy. I decided against the choc-chip variety because I know there will be a ton of that at the bake sale. My combination was: Spice Cake Mix instead of a white cake and instead of choc. chips- toffee bits. So the end product is spice bars with toffee and walnuts- they are moist, yummy and will be great with coffee. Thanks for a great basic recipe that I can change weekly!
