This year it was just Jordan and I for the holidays... with the impending move, we're hoarding money like crazy and travel and gifts just didnt really fit in. However, holidays can be saved, what with the miracle of Facetime and the recreation of culinary traditions...
This is part 1 of a series i'll call "how we ate our way though the holidays"
I never knew that crab dip was a Christmas tradition for so many people... That was, until I started googling, looking for the crab dip my mom has made for the past bazillion Christmases... However, it seems most of you enjoy hot crab dip. and while i'm never one to turn up anything warm and cheesy, these holidays had specific demands - recreate the traditions...
so when google failed, i called my mom and just asked for the recipe.
Oh? Did I forget to mention that there was a block of cream cheese involved? One of my favorite culinary phrases has got to be "serve over a block of cream cheese"...
