I love crab soup and was practically addicted to it when I lived in coastal Virginia. This is a wonderful recipe and takes me back... Thanks!

I am making this for the second time; forgot to let everybody know how delicious and easy it is to make. We love it; I used half and half and it was plenty rich. My DH is a native Virginian, and this suited him just right! Thanks for a keeper.
