I just ran across this and thought I would post it here. Sounds like it would be amazing, I just like that it is inspired by a book! (See Note) "This crab dish is as much of a treat as digging in to a good book: It’s adapted from a scene in the novel The Hours and featured in The Book Club Cookbook (Tarcher/Putnam), which pairs recipes with great reads. The casserole offers lean protein and doses of vitamin A and folate. Plus, Self substituted soymilk for cream and replaced butter with olive oil, giving this storybook recipe a healthy ending"
