My DH loved this recipe, but I think it would taste better if it was changed to half sour cream and half with mayo. I really didn't care for the celery seed, so I would change it to Italian seasoning or Old Bay Seasoning. I used fresh crab meat and I added a bit more Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. I bought one of those mini crock pots and it fitted about 1-1/2 cups, so it only worked well for a group of four. I will use the rest of the dip for a family gathering this week. I served it on toasted pita triangles. I would do this one again, but with the changes. Thanks for the posting
