Zucchini fritters are very similar to the style of a potato pancake. They are very vibrant in color and are a great choice to make once you garden is overflowing with zucchini's in the late summer. These zucchini fritters come out tender and light with a crispy exterior. The creaminess of the feta adds a great boost in the flavor and goes great with the zucchini and herbs within the fritters. The fritters go great with marinara sauce or the more tradition yogurt style dipping sauce that most recipes include. Check out the recipe below in post.

Crab rangoons are basically crab and cream cheese wontons. They are popular appetizer in Chinese restaurants all across the country and are one of the easiest things to make. Crab rangoons are packed with fresh crab taste and super creamy cheese oozes out as you bite into them. You can substitute the rangoons with imitation crab to get more of the fast food chinese restaurant flavor, but in opinion the real crab is so much better. These are really fun to make with the whole family, just don’t let the little kids around the oil! The crab rangoons can be made a ahead and even frozen for dinners or snacks down the road.

For a game day snack and appetizer, the classic chicken wing is still an all time winner for fun and creative flavors you can make with them. These spicy bourbon wings have the flavor of the bourbon, plus the slight heat of the hot sauce give you a bit of a kick at the end. The skin gets really crispy but the chicken on the inside is still nice and juicy. The main factor is you need to find a great flavor bourbon that has great flavor but don't feel bad about poring it down the sink at the end. I use medium blend Kentucky bourbon that is around 10 dollars a bottle and turns out good, but use whatever quality you enjoy since it is a factor in the flavor.
