Top Review by Dancer

Hi Dancing, I left a review on the recipe above in 2003 and I really hate giving a bad review so I tried the recipe again with some leftover crap we had. I changed the recipe by using montery spicy jack and increased the old bay seasoning to 1 tsp. Sorry about tweeking it but I love crab and just had to try. It still needs a little something, just haven't figured it out yet. but I will keep trying lol thanks for the recipe. Dancer^
