But these days aren’t too bad, either. I look forward to catching up on my cooking shows on the weekends (The Kitchen is my fave right now) and getting inspired to try new recipes from some of my favorite chefs!

If you are in charge of bringing the chips and dip to your next potluck or get together, you’ll definitely want to make this Paula Deen southern hot crab dip recipe. You actually might want to make double this recipe because it’s just that dang good, y’all!

It’s just like a spicy dip from the south should be made. And I like to sprinkle a little bit of Old Bay Seasoning on mine to give it a more cajun feel – of course you don’t have to if you don’t want.
