I like to serve my family really (weird) unique things for dinner.


It's my effort to come up with a quick supper because soccer practice was canceled and we didn't have any frozen pizzas on hand stretch their taste buds and broaden their food horizons

We also enjoy seeing what funny more grown-up foods they'll actually enjoy.

I doubt we'll ever have Spicy Crab Dip for supper ever again because 2 children would starve...but this would make a great appetizer dip for a party...say a pumpkin carving party on October 23...details to come!

Spicy Crab Dip

2 garlic cloves, diced
1/2 c. sliced bottled roasted red peppers
1 1/2 tsp. red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper (more for spicier flavor)
1 block light cream cheese
1 6-oz. package crabmeat

Melt cream cheese on medium heat.  Add garlic, peppers, vinegar, and cayenne pepper. Mix well.  Gently fold in crabmeat.
Serve warm on yummy crackers!
*adapted from Epicurious.  They suggested to blend the first four ingredients in a blender.  We liked the texture of the peppers.

 The verdict:  Two takers...two leavers!

So...would you take this or leave it?

hmmm...I would try it and see if I would take it or leave it! But I do have a saying "never knock it until you try it" so that is why I would try it and give a verdict after the taste buds have done their job. :)

I would totally take it! As long as it wasn't too spicy. But I loooove crabmeat, so that would probably override the spiciness anyways. Can't wait to try it! :)

I would totally try it. Sounds really yummy!!
I've had lots of those last minute meals lately because my cupboards are almost bare. I at least found out that henry loves garbanzo beans....harper HATES them. It's fun to experiment though!

Yum. Have a great crab dip recipe from Janet Shrock, equally love it or hate it. Seems that's the way with crab. Once my poor brother-in-law, Trevor, mistook it for one of those creamy jello salads and tried it. He is completely anti seafood of any kind. Poor guy!
