One of my favorite snacks is crab puffs. They are extremely easy and fun to make. This recipe is mostly assembly so these measurements are not very exact and are easy to adjust.
You are going to need:
1 Package of wonton wrappers (small ones)
8 oz. of cream cheese
1 can of crab meat (about 8 oz.)
Tongs and/or a spatula
Fork and/or spoon
First, combine crab meat with cream cheese. Mix until you have a fairly even consistency. Take one of your wonton wraps and put about a teaspoon of your crab and cream cheese mixture, and place it slightly off center on the wonton wrapper. Fold the wonton into a triangle and then fold the side corners of the triangle toward the center. (This is the way that I usually fold them. Feel free to experiment.)
Fill the pan with oil. There should be enough that the crab puff will be mostly submerged. It should be hot enough that the crab puff immediately starts sizzling. Set each crab puff into the oil folded side down. Fry for about thirty seconds on both sides. (You will know you need to flip the crab puff when the edges start to bubble and change color. Please do not go wandering off this is not something that can be left unattended.) When the crab puff turns golden brown on both sides, remove the crab puff and set it on a plate with a paper towel to drain.
Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
Alternate versions: You can leave out the crab meat entirely or substitute with a can of shrimp or salmon.

How to Cook a Sweet Potato (Video)
Sweet potatoes are best known as a sweet dish served at holiday dinners along with side dishes like green beans and stuffing. Instead of being relegated to the desert course along with other sweet sensations, like puddings and pies, they enjoy the company of their savory siblings surrounding the main course. But, ‘sweet’ is not the only way to enjoy these tasty tubers. In fact, sweet potatoes were originally served roasted and salted, just like every other potato.

A twice baked potato is exactly what it’s name implies : a potato that’s been baked two times. But, simply popping it in the oven twice isn’t really all there is there is to it. A twice baked potato has been prepared in a certain way. A way that infuses the flavor of your seasonings throughout the entire spud. Think seasoned mashed potatoes in a skin.
