I'm a little behind here: Secret Pal question #8:
What is your favorite supper for a hot summer evening?
Being from Maryland, my favorite summer recipe is Maryland Crab Cakes. The link will take you to a recipe for them that was on Martha Stewart. These are wicked good and authentic Maryland style crab cakes. Of course it takes Maryland blue crabs to really make a Maryland Crab Cake, but not everyone is lucky enough to have access to those. Maryland Crab Cakes are traditionally served with sides of French fries and cole slaw, topped off with a pitcher of beer. I haven't made any this summer. I think I will have to do that before I go back to school. When it is really hot, I like salads so that I don't have to heat up the stove.
*Edit* My darling son who is currently living in Pittsburgh, left a comment as to how crabcakes should be eaten: "Not any beer will do. It must be a s---ton of Natty Boh (National Bohemian). Eating crabcakes with out Natty Boh is like eating a Primanti's without a cold Iron City. Its just not right."
