Monday Feature: Blog of the Week!

It's another beautiful Monday down the Jersey Shore, which means we have another Blog of the Week to share!

We chose The Cooking Blog, a cooking and food weblog by Wendy Cooper. It is her collection of recipes, articles, and ideas that she loves and chooses to share with her readers and fans.

Our favorite recipe:
  • 8 soda crackers, finely crushed
  • 2 cans (120 g each) canned crabmeat, drained
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) finely chopped green onions
  • 4 tsp (20 mL) light mayonnaise 
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) hot pepper sauce
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) Worcestershire sauce 
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) dried oregano leaves
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) grated lemon rind
  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) corn flake crumbs
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) grated Parmesan cheese
  1. In large bowl, combine crackers, crabmeat, egg, onion, mayonnaise, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, oregano and lemon rind. Divide mixture into 12 portions and pat into small patties, about 2-inch (5 cm) rounds; set aside.
  2. In large, shallow dish combine corn flake crumbs and cheese. Coat all sides of patties in crumb mixture. Place on lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 400°F (200°C) 8 minutes, turn and cook 8-10 minutes longer or until crumbs are golden brown. Makes 12 mini crab cakes.
Serve warm with heated pizza sauce for dipping.

Why We Love This Blog: This is not your ordinary cooking blog. The recipes are a mix of some of her own delicious concoctions and some that come recommended by magazines, websites, and more. There is also an eclectic mixture of posts and articles that are food-related in some way.

Why You Would Love This Blog: In addition to easy-to-follow recipes for any occasion, you can find helpful tips for Christmas gift ideas, videos on a variety of food-related topics, and fun facts about fast food and restaurant life.

See for yourself at and come back next Monday for an all new Blog of the Week!

Feel free to comment with any suggestions to blogs we may want to feature!
