I've always said if dips were a food group, I'd be married to them.  I love them all.  Hot, cold, veggie, fruit, cheesy, whatever, just as long as it's gooey and I'm using something {preferably food} to scoop it up with.

The holidays bring out the best in dips, don't they?  You go to parties and they are lined up on the table upon which you turn around and every outlet on the kitchen counter is filled with crock pots.  Here's the thing, if you don't like dips, I don't like you.

Kidding.

Kind of.

I created this Hot Crab Dip for two reasons.  One - I had a brand new glass pie plate from OXO to bake it in.  And two - nothing screams the holidays other than crab meat.  I rarely eat it, but that doesn't mean I don't like it!  This cheesy, onion-y, loaded with crab meat dip is perfect for holiday parties.

Or dinner.  Whatever you like.

Once this set is in your hands you can start filling up these beautiful containers.  The pie plate, is for what else...pie.  Maybe my pecan pie?  The loaf pan for my famous banana bread.  The 3 quart baking dish for my Iowa Ham Balls {yes, these are a delicious thing}.  Prehaps the 2 quart baking dish for my Holiday Peppermint Sugar Cookie Bars?  And finally the smart seal containers for all the leftovers.

You're set for the week.  Or month.  However you want to look at it.

I personally LOVE that the lids are clear.  Ever have so many leftover containers in your fridge, but have no idea what's in them?

Mom, if you're reading this - I'm speaking to YOU.

Just being able to see your food when opening up the fridge door makes the world of difference in my opinion.

But gah, let's move back to this dip.

I served it one night with our Sunday supper.  Send the press, we ate crab dip for dinner!  I may or may not have served fruit as a side.  A blueberry or two or three.  You know, to make it feel a bit healthier.

It was a well rounded meal in my opinion.  Says the woman who says dips should be a food group.  But here's the thing.  Every single person in my family LOVED it.  This is coming from a family that rarely has fish or seafood in our meal rotation.

What I'm getting at is if my tough critics enjoyed it, I'm guessing it would go over well with a group of well-rounded adults.
