Top Review by Mille®

Well, Donna, it's funny that you are making those comments. I'm from Laurel, just in case you're interested. And maybe the reason you never saw melted butter in a crab cake recipe is very simply because you never saw this recipe before! And, as for the recipe's Maryland authenticity, you might be interested to know that it is a recipe that is made available to the public by Phiilips themselves!
