Bradley's Creamy Maryland Crab Dip

Bradley's Creamy Maryland Crab Dip

 I made creamy crab dip to share with everyone at The Write to Cook. I decided to make this recipe because I love crab! It is traditional recipe from Maryland where my mother grew up and where all of our extended family still live. Maryland is known for their blue crabs and, even though I have never lived there, I have always experienced crabs because my Grandfather used to fly freshly steamed crabs into Bermuda for us to enjoy and I have even gone crabbing when visiting my Maryland relatives. It was great to make this recipe which is a favorite at our family celebrations.
