- WHO'S THAT GIRL: A higher education obsessed foodie who is documenting her life in the kitchen. I love to cook delicious, gourmet-style foods for those I love and always welcome a challenge in the kitchen. With that challenge comes an impromptu nature. I tend to avoid following recipes to the exact, so you are not likely to find very many posted here. Being that I am a Libra and am learning to be free in the kitchen, the story always goes, "A pinch of this and a smattering of that!" Thank you for visiting -- and happy reading!

Reasoning Goes Out the Door
Jurors, please meet wonton wrappers, feta cheese, panko and one teaspoon of butter.
Please don't ask me to explain what came over me.
Please don't ask, "Why the curiosity?"
Just accept that this is the way I am. I have.
*loud, methodical laugh interspersed with: "What was I thinking?!"*
So, yes -- I got all curious about these four ingredients, wondering if combining them would amount to anything interesting.
The answer: Nah, not really. This will pretty much go down as a failed experiment.
Honestly, I didn't have any foresight here. I was just wondering what would come of mixing these. All I got were pretty bland, dried out wonton wrappers. Even when the feta kept them moist, having baked them in the oven for a good 5 minutes or so, the result was substandard. There was no melding of flavor, no electric party on my tongue. Nothing.
A failed attempt to redeem this appetizer included the introduction of some jalapeno jelly. Yeah, that served no purpose to be heard of, other than to aggravate me further.
Don't try this one at home. But at least I had an audience.
