my grandma would be so proud!

November 21, 2013

I have always been a voracious reader.  If I am bored, I will pick up whatever is around and read it.  When I was younger and we used to go hang out at my grandma’s house after school, I loved looking through her magazines: Ladies’ Home Journal, Good Housekeeping and Reader’s Digest.

In fact, I loved RD so much that my mom sent me a subscription to it when I was a freshman in college.  I am pretty sure I was the only 18-year-old on SMU’s campus that looked forward to Reader’s Digest coming in the mail each month.  I still love it.

So imagine my excitement when I got an email this morning from Reader’s Digest letting me know one of my recipes was featured on their Perfect Christmas Appetizers roundup.  How fun!

Thanks for reading!  xoxo

Crabmeat over Boursin
1 pound cream cheese, at room temperature
8 ounces whipped butter, at room temperature
1 tsp. garlic salt or Greek seasoning
½ tsp. dried parsley
½ tsp. dried oregano
¼ tsp. dried basil
¼ tsp. dried dill
¼ tsp. black pepper
¼ tsp. dried thyme

Combine the cream cheese and butter in the bowl of a food processor. With the machine running, add the seasonings, and process until smoothly blended.   Check and season to taste.

Crabmeat topping:
2 lbs. jumbo lump crabmeat – gently handpicked for shells and rinsed
lemon pepper seasoning, to taste
3-4 green onions, sliced
Season the crabmeat to taste with lemon pepper and finely chopped green onions.  Let sit in refrigerator an hour or so before putting on top of the Boursin for the flavors to meld.

To arrange:
Spread Boursin on platter about 3/4″ thick.  Gently pour and arrange the seasoned crabmeat over the Boursin.  Garnish with curled green onions and lemon halves. Serve with melba rounds.
