Crab Rangoon's...

You know you have something extra special when your Taste Tester's face and body language says it all! Recently I was spending the day baking in the kitchen and staging my food photos. We had a serviceman at the house, he couldn't help but comment on the aroma's as I was cooking & he was moving about room to room working. When I was done...I offered a few food samples to the young man....
As he was leaving, I happened to catch his response through the kitchen window. His body language was all I needed to see....the tilt of his head and his sigh of joy from the taste was all I needed to know that he was very happy with my Crab Rangoon's! Ohhhh, that was sweet, it put a small on my face!
