I am making this as a prelude to Easter dinner tomorrow. It is delicious and easy peasy which are two of my criteria for a recipe. The others of course are that a recipe have five ingredients and only three steps. While this has a few more than five ingredients, it makes up for it by being simple to put together.

This is another “Debbie” recipe—my fine gourmet friend who is the inspiration for a lot of my cooking ventures. She encourages me by telling me that “even Dave (her husband) can do it”, although if you remember from an earlier post, Dave, it turns out, is a great cook in his own right.

Hot Crab Spread

1 – 8 oz. package of cream cheese at room temperature

1 – 7 oz. can of crabmeat

2 tbsp. of chopped green onions

½ tsp. of jarred minced garlic

1 tbsp. milk

Dash of pepper (I love recipes that call for a dash—brings out my creativity)

1 tbsp. lemon juice

1/3 cup of slivered almonds

Combine all ingredients except for almonds. Mix well! Garnish with almonds.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Serve with crackers.

Kudos to my friend Nancy for making hot cross buns from scratch yesterday—they were delicious and provided just the right note for Good Friday.

Next week: a recipe from my sister Peggy for a great pork chop dinner.
