  1. This is very simnilar to my crab dip recipe and looks yummy! Cream cheese is a key element in it too! Guess you can't please everyone!
  2. This recipe was HORRIBLE! Tasted like cream cheese mayhem! DON'T USE CREAM CHEESE! It tastes HORRIBLE!!! A complete waste of good crab yesterday! NO ONE LIKED IT! Especially ME!!!
  3. This was easy and wonderful! I took it to a fondue party and it was loved by all. The only change I made was to use sherry instead of white wine. I just love the smell and taste of sherry with shallots and cream- YUM! I also used half and half and it turned out great. I used canned crab meat and of course fresh would have been better, but it was still great. I made this a few hours in advance and was able to re-heat it in the microwave and then poured it into the fondue pot. I served it with blanched broccoli and cut up crusty french bread, so good! Thanks, will definately make it again!
  4. Wow! This was fantastic! I made this for a Christmas Eve get together and everyone loved it! I served it with blanched broccoli and crispy breadsticks. Thanks!
  5. Amazing recipe Bethany! We just got a fondue pot and this was the first recipe I made in it. We loved the combination of mustard and crab and lemon, and the white wine really made it even more special. I took your advice with the steamed broccoli and I also toasted sliced French bread and brushed it with olive oil and rubbed it with garlic. Again, this was a fantastic recipe and I did take a pic and will post it later! thanks for posting!
