Growing up in Maryland I was always around seafood. Taught by my grandma, who was a wonderful cook in her own right! It was not till later in my life that I perfected this wonderful tasting crab soup! Loaded with vegetables and crab meat, perfect for a cold day. My teenage daughter absolutely loves it. There are many wonderful receipes on this site and this is one that should not be missed. I hope you enjoy!
