I got so many useful comments from the community on my cookie dilemma entry that I figure it's time to throw out another mystery for your consideration…. (Bonus lesson: do NOT refresh your blog entry while previewing it, or it is gone Gone GONE forever! Sigh.) My wonder MORE

About this Cook
I'm a writer and publishing exec for a couple of niche magazines in Baltimore, MD. Four years ago I married the greatest guy in the world, and we have two four-legged babies -- Arwen the Wonder Pup (a Silky Terrier) and Casey, the Best Kitty Ever (a black tux cat).
My favorite things to cook
Lasagna; strawberry shortcake; a million different chicken recipes; marinades for all the meats my husband loves to grill; creative salads; holiday meals for our family. I really love summer meals when I can pick fresh vegetables right from our garden and turn them into dinner!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas cookies, my Mom's 1-2-3-4 cake, my Dad's peach cake, and my sister and I taking turns hosting Thanksgiving and Christmas meals for the family.

Karyn's Cream of Crab Soup
I'm from Maryland and our wedding theme was "Love, Honor and Old Bay," so I love the stuff -- but even I had to say this is WAY too much! But other than that, this is awesome Cream of Crab, better than most restaurant versions (and we've had it everywhere). Will make this again and again!

Roasted Red Potato Salad
I add a few different things to my version, but the best thing I got from this one is the idea to roast (rather than boil) the potatoes. They don't get mushy or "starchy" that way, and the roasting really gives them a richer flavor. Very tasty.

Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie
Delicious -- can't wait to take it to our playoff tailgate tomorrow! I used the big, flaky kind of crescents, so I had more than enough dough for top & bottom. I sprinkled some crushed pecans on top with the butter, cinnamon and sugar, just because I had them left over from the crust of a regular cheesecake I was making -- that turned out to be a tasty addition. But this is an awesome recipe as is, and I'll definitely be making it again.
