Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information.

Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, and Riesling are my top picks for Crab. Chilled crab tastes great with pinot grigio. Warm crab (especially with butter) can be matched with a buttery Chardonnay or a crisp fruity Riesling. One wine you could try is Gifft by Kathie Lee Gifford Estate Chardonnay. It has 4 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 20 dollars.

Our 2015 vintage of Gifft Chardonnay exhibits richness, depth and complexity, balanced by a lively acidity and an essential freshness. Featuring the gorgeous tropical fruit flavors that are the hallmark of Monterey Chardonnays, Gifft Chardonnay strikes the ideal balance between rich and refreshing

Tips

Price Tips

  • Avocados are one of the "clean fifteen", so you don't have to buy them organic if you don't want to spend the extra dough.

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • If you find that you're always missing lime zest, purchase lime extract and substitute a 1/2 teaspoon extract for every tablespoon zest.

  • An average lime yields about 1.5 to 2 teaspoons of lime zest. If you're making key lime pie or something and end up with more zest than you need, freeze it!

  • You should not store your onions with your potatoes because the gases they emit will make each other spoil faster. For more information about selecting and storing onions, check out this lesson about onions in the academy.

  • The average fresh lime contains 2 tablespoons of lime juice (just in case you are substituting bottled lime juice).

Green Tips

  • Since pesticide residue is most likely to be stored in the skin/rind, it might be advisable to buy organic limes if you're using them for zest.
