Take a crack at these scrumptious crab cakes while the gettin’ is good! Usually around this time, I get a craving something fierce! This year, have at a handful of new yummy recipes ripe for the last leg of summer, along with one or two ‘golden oldies’ we just can’t quit!

The Crab Cakes [above] comes from a really cool cookbook called Recipe Revival from the folks at Southern Living. Theirs is a consistent and traditional way to make crab cakes — with the focus on the crab! It features fresh backfin crabmeat, a special blend of jumbo lump and special grade crabmeat.
