One of the best things about being a food blogger is encountering some of the most amazing people that share a common love for all things food. Today a great group of friends have come together to have a virtual baby shower to honor Amanda of the fantabulous blog, {i am baker}.

Amanda is expecting her fourth child and what better way to celebrate Amanda’s new baby boy than with fabulous food. If you have never visited Amanda’s blog, I’m going to demand that you stop by immediately. Once you lay your eyes on her incredible cakes, you’ll be hooked and will catch yourself feverishly checking Amanda’s blog for her latest creation!

I like to keep you guys on your toes, so instead of the predictable sweet recipe, I decided to create a spin on one of my favorite finger foods…Crab Rangoon. There is a Chinese restaurant in town that I simply adore and have been frequenting since my sophomore year of college. The restaurant doesn’t have much curb appeal and the interior leaves much to be desired. A giant Buddha welcomes you into a dark atmosphere with discolored lace curtains, crooked booths and satin menus that appear to have been gnawed on by something.

But…I keep going back because they have the most amazing Crab Rangoon on the planet. These little bundles of bliss are fried to perfection with the ideal ratio of crab to cream cheese and their dipping sauce is to die for. I could potentially eat them every day of the week and be completely content in life. However, as appealing as a daily fix of Crab Rangoon sounds, they are fried and my rear end would probably expand to exponential widths. Plus, the owner scares me and a daily dose of her could potentially land me in therapy.

If you have some time, definitely take a few minutes to click around and check out what these other ladies created. I’m betting you’ll be smitten with everything you see!

Congratulations, Amanda!

Ingredients:

1 can (6 oz.) white crabmeat, drained and chopped

4 oz. (1/2 of 8-oz. pkg.) cream cheese, softened

2 tablespoons light mayonaise

½ teaspoon Sriracha

2 teaspoons finely slice chives, plus more for garnish

fresh ground pepper to taste

12 won ton wrappers


Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a mini muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray.


2. In a medium bowl, combine crab meat, cream cheese, mayonaise, Sriracha, chives, and pepper. Mix until well combined.


3. Place 1 won ton wrapper in each 12 mini muffin cups. The edges of the won ton wrappers will extend beyond the mini muffin tin cups and may need to be folded slightly. Fill the center of each won ton cup with crab mixture.


4. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until edges of cups are golden brown and filling is heated through. Garnish with reserved chives.
