Maryland Crab Potato Salad

One thing that many people still don’t know about us is that despite our blog name, we live in Maryland. Let me explain—when we started the blog a bit over 3 years ago, we were living in Springfield, Virginia. It was a great little spot, and we liked it a lot, except for the price. When we found the chance to move across the district to upgrade for a house (instead of an apartment), closer to the Metro, and lower rent, we jumped on it. This crab potato salad is just one small celebration of our time in Maryland.

You’re going to really like this potato (or yucca or jicama) salad. The crab, egg, and old bay add a flavor that is just in time for spring. Don’t just take my word for it, throw it together and try it out. The best thing is that it gets better as it ages in the refrigerator. Leftovers on day 3 and 4, if your leftovers last that long, are sweet. But enough from me, on with the crab potato salad.

Crab Cakes with Old Bay Horseradish Mayonnaise


Welcome to our new internet home!  We thought this crab cake recipe would be a great way to kick off the new site, as it’s a delicious and easy dish that will win hearts and stomachs.  We do make our own mayonnaise, and for this recipe, our mayonnaise consisted of: 1 egg, 1/4 tsp black pepper, 1/4 tsp mustard, 1/2 C coconut oil, 1/2 C olive oil.  Even though we do that, you should be alright with the clean mayonnaise of your choosing–just try and stay away from the canola or corn oil supermarket mayonnaises.
