A Glorious Spring Day and a Favorite Recipe

We are having another glorious spring day in Forks.  We have rooms available tonight and through the weekend, which just happens to be "Rainfest".  There will be a quilt show and classes for quilters this weekend and a beach clean up on Saturday.  Come on over and join the fun! Last week we were invited to a dinner where we needed to bring an appetizer.  (Obviously not a party for vampires...)  Anyway my sister helped me out with one or our Aunt Marge's specialties, a hot crab and artichoke dip.  It went over really well.  There wasn't much to bring home. 

Give it a try!


  • 14 ounces artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
  • 6 ounces crab meat
  • 1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
  • 1 1/3 cups Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons lemon juice

Mix all the above ingredients together and bake at 400 degrees for 15 - 20 minutes.  Serve with bread or chips.  Enjoy!
