Author Notes

Aunt Dottie claims she hates to cook. But she has always requested Thanksgiving in the family holiday dinner swap and her Thanksgiving turkey and stuffing (yes, inside the bird) is fantastic. Every other family holiday event finds her special crab dip on the appetizer table. She never forgets to send us all home with our own little plastic cream cheese container full of extra dip to tide us over until the next holiday. —Eliana60
