Crab Cakes


These are the best crab cakes I've ever eaten. I got the recipe from Cuisine magazine. Every time I make them I hear alot of oohs and ahhs and requests for the recipe. There's a local family-owned restaurant in town known for their crabcakes. My teenage niece said they were the only crabcakes she likes, until she tried these. These are even better.
