Bumble Bee for the Holidays
I love to cook especially for the holidays and have some go-to recipes that I always make each year. That being said, I always grab a new recipe to try out for my friends and family. This year I am thinking of trying this Cajun Crab Fondue made with Bumble Bee Crab. It looks so creamy and yummy – I think I would serve it with toasted baguette slices and also some raw veggies for the healthy types!

This would be a great appetizer for Thanksgiving – sounds yummy with a beer or a glass of white wine on the couch with the football games on and your family chatting!
