Crunchy Creamy Crab Cakes…YUM!

I spent this New Years Day with my husband’s family having a day of resting, celebrating, playing games, and eating some good food!  We wanted to start the year off as a family, focusing on what we wanted 2012 to be about…and one of those things was quality family time.  For me, having a great meal and fellowshipping around the table is one of the best ways to bond as a family!  For our dinner on January 1st, I decided to make Dungeness Lump Crab Cakes with a side salad and Rosemary Bread!  And then I quickly had to make a “new year’s resolution” not to “shellfishly” eat the entire plate before dinner started!   These cakes are very rich and creamy on the inside while maintaining a crispy crusty coating on the outside…and they are just in-crab-ibly delicious!  And no, I  will not apologize for the silly seafood puns!

Naughty Enchiladas…but I won’t tell!

I have a confession to make to all of you lovely people who might be readers of Chocolate Covered Everything.  SOMETIMES, I make food that is naughty, naughty, naughty!   My definition of a naughty recipe is when people ask for it, I feel slightly embarrassed as the ingredients are maybe not the MOST healthy…you might even call them naughty!  I think you get the picture!  Now with regards to this enchilada recipe…I do realize there are many more healthy ways to make enchiladas (and I have I promise!)…but I am of the belief  that every once in awhile it is ok to be a little naughty!  This is one of those times!  Trust me.  I won’t tell on you…

I want to preface this story with the statement that my husband is most definitely NOT a greedy person.  However, for some reason when I make these enchiladas, he turns into a greedy little enchilada hoarder!  I have invited people over for dinner to share these enchiladas and he has been so adamant about not sharing that I ended up serving something else!  haha…I have to admit it does make me feel good that he loves them that much and like clockwork, as soon as the enchiladas are all eaten the greedy little enchilada hoarder retreats back into his little tortilla cave!    Now on to the recipe!
