As seen on TV.

   Are you hungry? Are you watching your calories? Do you like delicious food? If you answered "yes" to at least one a question, this post is for you. No, this time I didn't come up with the recipe myself, I just copied it from Lisa Lillien from the Food Network show "Hungry girl". She always has great ideas on how to make guilt free dishes without scarifying the flavor. This recipe especially caught my eye. It combines all of my favorite ingredients, is perfect not only for lunch, but also as an appetizer for a party, and is super fast and easy. Oh probably I should tell you what dish I'm talking about, huh? The Crab Rangoonies, yeah this name didn't tell me anything either. Here is the recipe:

*  8 oz. flaked imitation crab-meat
*  1/2 cup fat-free cream cheese
*  2 wedges of The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese
*  3-4 chopped scallions
*  1 tsp soy sauce
*  2 cloves garlic (minced)
*  1/2 cup chopped parsley
*  salt and pepper
*  small square wonton wrappers (about 30)

    To make the filling, combine all the ingredients except for the wonton wrappers in a bowl, breaking up the cheese wedges as you add them. Mix until uniform.

     Lay one wonton wrapper flat on a dry surface. Spoon the filling into the center, moisten all four edges by dabbing your fingers in water and going over the edges smoothly, fold the bottom left corner to meet the top right corner, forming a triangle and enclosing the filling. Press firmly on the edges to seal. Place each rangoonie flat on the baking sheet, spray the tops with nonstick spray, and bake at 375F for about 12 minutes until golden brown. They are very good on their own but you should definely try them with my signature dipping sauce, because it just makes them unbelievable. To make the sauce mix equal parts of teriyaki sauce, BBQ sauce, ketchup, and lime juice! It's awesome!

   Just be careful... they are super addictive! They might be diet friendly (4 of them are about 140 calories) but it doesn't really matter if you end up eating 20 of them... and it's not that difficult!
