Baked crab wontons-4

A couple weeks ago I talked my husband into letting me take a cruise with 50 other fabulous bloggers for a photography conference.  I’d like to say this is “work” but being on a cruise with camera in hand is more like my happy place.  The best part is Royal Caribbean is our sponsor, so they are ALREADY treating us like royalty and the cruise doesn’t take place until January.

With the cruise approaching I think beach bodies are on everyone’s mind.  I mean we are taking a cruise during winter but will be traveling to beach destinations with CAMERAS.

Eek is right…..  

Baked crab wontons

It’s salads, baked foods and NO fried foods.  Yea right whom am I kidding?  Whenever I start a diet it lasts just a couple of weeks but I’m going to try really hard to throw good meals in every once in a while.

Today I’m starting off with these easy baked crab wontons.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE crab wontons so baking them just made them so much better instead of frying them up.  Plus its one step closer to getting a beach body by January.

ENJOY ~ Meagan

  13. I love how healthy this is. I think you’re right–the key to ‘dieting’ is throwing a few more healthy meals in there. Especially delicious meals like this!

  14. Crab wontons are my favorite but I hate the frying in oil part. This is an awesome alternative!

  16. This is my kind of appetizer! Pinned!

  17. What’s a good sub for cream cheese. Wouldn’t they be just as good without cream cheese, maybe mayo?
