And here’s what’s for dinner tonight: Hot Crab Dip based on this recipe by the lovely Paula “Ya’ll-need-to-add-at-least-three-sticks-of-butter-to make-it-taste-reeeaaal-good” Deen.


  • Crabmeat from Trader Joe’s (You could get it somewhere else but I think you should buy it at TJ’s.)
  • Lots of mayonnaise
  • Couple of dollops of sour cream
  • A bit of cream cheese
  • Heaps of grated Parmesan
  • Some minced onions – green, white or red
  • Half a red bell pepper
  • Some garlic based on how smelly you want to be later
  • A tad bit of Worcestershire sauce
  • A bit more lemon or lime juice
  • A bit less hot sauce
  • A dash of dry mustard
  • Salt and pepper to your liking (I have to defer to Trader Joe’s again: they have this new delicious Lemon Pepper. Perfect.)
  • Some grated Asagio cheese
  • Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Finely chop garlic, onions and bell pepper and saute in frying pan with a bit of olive oil.
  • Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and stir until thoroughly mixed. Scoop the mix in a casserole dish and sprinkle with grated Asagio cheese.
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes.
  • Serve hot with fresh toasted artisan bread.
