MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 15, 2010

The description of this recipe really made me want to try it. I LOVE crab meat, so I figured this was going to be a winner. After spending $25 on the ingredients to make this, 45 minutes later I was emptying my $25 into the trash. The flavor was just not good. It was fun to make, but tasted horrible. I was really hoping that this was going to be as yummy as the description implied.

The recipe description incorrectly mentions cream cheese. There is not any cream cheese in the recipe and it is correct as printed.

We apologize for the error.
