"My Third Attempt at Crab Cakes. The first recipe I tried ended up too watery and the cakes didn't stick together and ended up breaking apart when I was frying them. I used a different recipe my second attempt and they were too bland although they stuck together this time and they were crispier when I baked them. My third attempt was a combo of the two recipes with my adding of the seasoning and mayo. Turned out very well and pleased my family as an appetizer for our Thanksgiving meal. I used leftovers for a salad the next day. One of my first semi-original recipes since I'm new cook."
