Good Eats...

Lately I've been on a mad hunt to find a seafood market that sells garlic crab trays. What the is heck is a garlic crab tray you ask.

But  food treasures like these just don't exist outside of my home state or anywhere on the west coast for that matter.
So I decided to take matters into my own hands (and kitchen) and concoct a little something of my own. Get into this food gluttony ;D .

First off... boil a few clusters of precooked snow crab  a large pot of water seasoned with cayenne and Old Bay seasoning(for extra kick).

In a separate sauce pan add a full bottle and a half of Parkay squeezable spread . Season with more Old Bay seasoning , garlic powder,cayenne and parsley flakes(optional) . I never really make exact measurements but if I had to guess I'd say add a tbsp of each or adjust it to your taste.

Place it at heat setting of medium until boiling . And then add approx.  1 1/2 tbsp of cornstarch to thicken the butter.Stir and remove it from the heat  .Set aside (it'll thicken as it sits). 
Then place the crab clusters in a steam bag or large oven bag . Pour the sauce mixture into the bag, over the crab.  Give the bag a toss  to evenly coat them.

Throw it on a plate and get to diggin'. I added some pasta with sauteed shrimp. Glass of Red Moscato..Dinner is serve!

Hello World...

For awhile I've been wanting to get into the blogging scene..And the procrastinator me kept putting it off. Well I finally got the guts to pull one together. So here it is ..My new found love. Embark on the journey with me. Through my (almost daily ..o.k. maybe weekly ) musings. Me honing in on my craft for makeup artistry and photography. Or just random post. Whatever it maybe just hope you've come to kick it with me for awhile ;D
