Maryland Crab Cakes

Maryland Crab Cakes


1 tsp Mustard
2 Tbsp Mayonnaise
1 tsp Old Bay Seasoning
2 Dashes of Worcestershire Sauce
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
1 Large Egg
1 Red Chili, seeded and finely chopped (optional)
4 Sprigs Italian Flat Parsley, finely chopped
1 Scallion (white part only) finely chopped
450 g Lump Crabmeat, picked over to remove cartilage
40 g Saltine Crackers, crush into fine crumbs
Sea Salt to taste
Freshly Ground Black Pepper
Oil for frying (peanut or canola oil)
Lemon Wedges
Tartar Sauce


In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the mustard, mayonnaise, Old Bay seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, large egg, a pinch of sea salt, and some pepper.

Gently fold in the chili, parsley, scallion, crabmeat, and cracker crumbs with a rubber spatula until just combined.

Shape the crab mixture into 10 to 12 pieces patties (about 45 to 50 g each patty).

Heat the oil in a large cast-iron pan or non-stick pan until hot. Lower the heat to medium and shallow fry the crab cakes for about 2 minutes on each side. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels and serve warm. Serve warm with some lemon wedges and tartar sauce, if desired.

Raw Energy Bars~Chocolate, Cashew, And Almond

I get energized everytime I make Raw Energy Bars at home. I have tried several recipes and flavors before; but, this Chocolate, Cashew, and Almond flavor is currently my favorite!

Not only are these bars good for you, they also taste great! So, if you are into raw energy bars, then you may want to try this recipe. If possible, please send me your feedback as well.

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
