First Dish From Your Reciepies

All good dishes begin with good ingredients. So, I go where I can find fresh ingredients The market. So much yummy stuff there I felt it in my bones I would find planko. Not only did they have the planko but 3 different kinds of crab cake mix. I got the planko as directed. The next set of photo is some additional goodies I got:

Following HITO’s directions yielded the following:

And thus the finished product. Not too bad heh? Pinot Grigio, Remoulade, Spring mix with walnuts, apples, Hito’s  Famous Crab Cakes.

    Everything looks good in black or white, I have found.

    Hope they were yummy.

    4 boneless breast chicken, diced, cooked
    1 can cream of chicken soup
    1 c. Cheddar cheese
    1/2 c. milk
    1/2 c. cashews
    Garlic salt

    Mix all ingredients in bowl and add into center of crepe. Roll up like a tortilla. Top with cheese. Bake at 350 degrees until cheese is melted, about 10-15 minutes.

    1 c. flour
    1/4 tsp. baking powder
    1/4 tsp. salt
    1 1/4 c. milk
    1 egg
    1 tbsp. butter, melted

    Beat ingredients until smooth. Pour 1/4 cup batter into greased non-stick 7 or 8 inch pan. Rotate until batter has covered bottom (or until brown).,1639,154189-232193,00.html

    Letting crepe batter rest in the fridge a 1/2hour, then bring to room temperature…helps, and the pan is the right temp when a drop of water skips across it.
    These can be made ahead of time a couple days, then bake the day you need them.

    Place a sliced banana into a crepe. Add 1/2 scoop of your favorite ice cream. Add any topping (caramel, butterscotch, hot fudge, etc.) Fold over sides. Top with whipped cream, nuts, sprinkles, etc.
    To flambe, pour banana liqueur, grand marnier, etc. over the top. Dazzle your guests by lighting it and serving the crepes aflame.
