I tried this soup before many years ago when a teacher made it for me. It was delicious! After trying your sweet corn pudding recipe (which my son loves) I decided to try this soup. I served it to my lovely food critics ( brother and son) and they raved over it. The first time I didn’t use enough crab and too much old bay seasoning. I just made it again this weekend and it was sheer perfection!!! I can’t wait to try another one of your recipes. God Bless!
