Crab Cake Lite

Crab Cake Light pushes the crab meat front and center.  Supporting flavors include just a touch of light sour cream, flat-leaf Italian parsley, minced yellow bell pepper and salt to suit your taste.  Remember, salt brings out the flavor of the crab meat.  Panko breadcrumbs and an egg keeps the crab meat together.  Patties are formed and then chilled in the refrigerator.  Finally a pat of butter sits on each pattie and baked in the oven.

Sausage Beans Roasted Vegetable Soup

What makes this sausage, beans and roasted vegetable soup so delicious?  Red bell peppers, tomatoes and garlic are roasted, then blended with a vegetable broth and seasoned with a herb bouquet garni--creating a beautifully rich yet subtle flavor-filled soup base.  Sweet Italian sausage and a Vidalia onion add a layer of sweetness and texture along with cannellini beans.
