Crabby Cakes for Crabby People
(Click to watch my latest Culinary Confession as I seek the best crab cake in Baltimore.)
This week, I want to share an article I wrote for the Archdiocese of Baltimore Catholic Paper, The Catholic Review, with our Grace Before Meals “fam.” As you know, the Maryland scene is quite proud of its seafood specialties but, in particular, the Maryland Blue Crab. This mean-looking crustacean packs a sweet flavor when boiled or steamed and, of course, seasoned with a Chesapeake Bay favorite – Old Bay.
(Steak and cakes – the best of both worlds.)
In this Culinary Confession, I sample some of Maryland’s best crab cakes. You can try to determine which is the best for your taste buds. I would think determining the best would be an impossible task, which is why I picked places that are close to locations where people can pray for divine inspiration.

During the months of July and August, our team will offer our members a walk down memory lane with some of our previously published blasts. This will give our team a chance to prepare for the launch of our new website and the highly anticipated book, Spicing Up Married Life.
(One of the featured recipes in the new book – complete with color photos of each dish.)
We will definitely offer some updated news, tips, and recipes with these Blasts from the Past, but we also want to make sure the fun stories, prayers, and recipe exchanges are not forgotten.
In the meantime, I pray that you and your family have a blessed summer, safe travels, and many opportunities to celebrate the greatest gifts of life – the food on the table and the blessed lives of the people around it!

Let us pray: Lord, we pray that this time of vacation for family and friends will be a time of recreation – to be recreated and renewed. Keep all travelers safe and focused on their ultimate destination in Heaven. With the prayers of the angels and saints, we ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
