Spring Break Celebration

What can be better than "Blog Candy" to celebrate spring break. Not only a celebration of spring, but also of families coming together to celebrate Easter with great food. I am going to share with you a fabulous appetizer recipe that I make often and it is a hit every time. Don't let the ingredients deter you, when these flavors come together it is a party in your mouth.

1 8oz package of cream cheese (softened)
1 garlic clove chopped or pressed
1 cup grated swiss cheese
4-8 oz imitation crab
3/4 cup bottled sweet and sour sauce
1/4 cup chopped almonds
1/4 cup chopped green onions

Combine the first 3 ingredients and spread evenly in a 8x8 baking dish.
Top with imitation crab, sweet and sour sauce, almond and green onions
Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes or until bubbly.
You can serve with fried wontons or crackers (wontons taste better)
(this recipe came from Pampered Chef)

So for your next get together serve this and leave me a comment of what you think of the recipe or just leave me a general comment for a chance to win a some blog candy. I will be giving away everything to make 6 of the "Hello Card" that is on my March 16th post using "Hello Again" stamp set, except ink, adhesive, punches and scissors. I will randomly pick a winner on Monday April 12th. I will only ship to the US. Winner has 24 hours to e-mail me an address to send this prize.

I will be away from blogging to celebrate my family and the time we have together during Spring Break.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Have a fabulous day!
