      On Christmas morning, I woke up sick as a dog. :( So picture 5 twenty-somethings running around the kitchen playing 'chef' while I supervised from my deathbed. (Well, that's a little melodramatic, I suppose. Actually, it was just the couch, but for a while there...) My youngest son's fiancee bravely volunteered to tackle your Crab Imperial and was absolutely amazed at how easy it was to prepare such an elegant dish. It drew rave reviews from a tough audience, and she was so proud! Besides being delicious, this is both impressive and highly 'doable' for cooking novices. Thanks for a great recipe that helped 'save the day', KathyP!
