Feeling Crabby?

Jul 19th

This week all my posts are geared around our upcoming one year anniversary.

As you know I love cooking and that’s one of my favorite things about marriage.

There’s nothing better than coming home, grabbing a glass of wine and cooking a great meal.

When done with hubster it’s even better!!!

When it comes time to pick a recipe to make I turn to my Sunday Supper cookbook!

What’s that? Take a look HERE.

It’s filled with amazing recipes, helpful cooking hints from my in-laws and lots of memories.

Since hubster loves crab this post is for him!

I learned to make this crab dip over the 4th of July weekend.

The best part of cooking this for the first time with my mother & sister-in law was the extra advice.

“Outside the box” aka off the recipe guidance.

And because I am nice…I will now pass on to you!

This is a great recipe for warm summer nights!

Start with a cup of softened cream cheese.

A half cup of mayonaisse.

A tablespoon of Dijon mustard.

Whip, Whip, Whip!

Throw in a 1/2 tablespoon of lemon juice.

Time for secret tip! Wash the crab meat and then squeeze a lemon on.

Add to bowl along with chopped Italian parsley.

Mix and the dip is done! Now time for the sides.

Chop a pint of cherry tomatoes.

Throw some balsamic vinegar on top.

Add some salt and pepper. Then roast at 350 degrees for about 5-7 minutes.

Place in a little bowl.

Make some buttered saltines by mixing garlic, parsley and butter.

Spread on the saltine and bake at 350 degrees for 5-7 minutes.

Enjoy by using a buttered saltine to dip then throwing some roasted tomatoes on top.
