Crab Puffs Recipe

VAV!/June 30, 2015/Contributed by Bobby of the Blog Chef.net Crab puffs are placed high on my list of appetizers. Crab puffs are a perfect snack for any party or get together. There are many ways to make crab puffs but this method has to be my favorite. Instead of having the crab baked right into the dough, the puffs are baked in the oven, cut in half and then filled with a delicious crab mixture. Over-all there is a little work involved with this recipe but nothing major. The crab mixture is delicious enough to eat by itself. Everyone around my house just devoured these; they were gone in no time. The recipe calls for canned crab but imitation crab will work as well. If you are in need of an amazing appetizer, give this recipe for crab puffs a try! Enjoy.

Victory Mail

Pictured above: A sergeant compares two rolls of microfilm, together containing 3200 letters, to an equal number of traditional missives. National Archives (111-SC-142-170365-B). VAV!/June 22, 2015 Used during World War II by the military, V-Mail , difficult for the enemy to intercept, fast, and free, augmented standard mail delivery. Postal and military officials encouraged the use of V-Mail because it was specifically designed to reduce the weight and bulk of mail to and from overseas armed forces. This reduction of mail allowed space for movement of vital war supplies and still ensure the fellows overseas would receive their mail in the most efficient and expeditious manner possible. The actual process of V-Mail was the result of almost four years of planning. The U.S. followed Great Britain's Airgraph service (already partnered with the Eastman Kodak Company in 1941 to launch the Airgraph service) and  integrated microfilm technology into its wartime system.
