I've enjoyed cooking and baking ever since my 4-H days in rural Iowa. The zesty seasonings in this bisque nicely complement the subtle flavor of crab.

This is our family's FAVORITE soup! (It's hard to save it for special occasions now, because it's SO EASY!) We like this as an appetizer with California rolls (sushi) on the side. Makes a great (and different) first course!
