Prompt: Make. What was the last thing you made? What materials did you use? Is there something you want to make, but you need to clear some time for it?

Disclaimer: A gourmet I am not. Nor am I a photographer. I am just a girl in need of a new digital camera who loves to cook.

I was so excited to read this prompt this morning as I made my coffee because today I happen to be making one of my favorite appetizers for a Junior League General Membership meeting. In December the meetings are in-home and the hosts ask that each attendee bring an appetizer to share with the group. Like all good recipes, this is one that I got from a friend and have since shared with many other friends and family members.

1 package of fake crab meat
1 package English Muffins, cut in half
1 t. Lawry's Seasoning Salt
1 t. minced garlic
1 jar Old English Cheese (Kraft)
5 T Miracle Whip
2 T Butter

*Please note: I am making a double recipe so that is why you are seeing two of everything.

Start by mixing the seasoning salt, minced garlic, Old English cheese, Miracle Whip and butter in a mixing bowl.

Microwave in 30 second intervals until fully melted, stirring between each session.
Add drained crab meat to cheese mixture and mix.

Spray a cookie sheet with Pam and place English Muffins onto sheet. Spray each muffin Pam.
Add the crab and cheese mixture to the muffins.
Until all are evenly coated.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Remove from the oven...
and Enjoy!

Note to food bloggers everywhere...this picture taking business while cooking is tough stuff. Hats off to Pioneer Woman and Iowa Girl Eats!

So while I on ocassion cook I wish I would do it more. I also wish I would take time to sew. I am hoping with the new house, a kitchen that is mine, windows that need covering; both items will become a priority and a regular occurance.


  1. YUM. We have a family recipie that's very similar and sooooo delicious. I have had these for breakfast! AND you can freeze them and then pop them in the oven whenever. And now I'm hungry....
