Naomi says: Every New Year’s Eve, I celebrate with my family by going whole hog on dinner. Dinner is usually some kind of filet with seafood. This year, I found a recipe for a drunken crab pot and I knew it was for me.

Now, I had grabbed crab claws instead of the crab legs that the recipe called for and I will never make that mistake again. I also added shrimp and those lil morsels were T-A-S-T-Y! I will make this again. It was simple, quick and enjoyed by my boys.

Make sure your crab legs are split and don’t overcook!

So, here we go!

2 bottles premium ale ( I used Sierra Nevada)
2 lemons, cut into quarters
5 garlic cloves, peeled and split in half
2 pounds crab legs, split (or a combination of 1 lb crab legs and 1 lb shrimp)
1 t. Old Bay Seasoning
Drawn butter, for serving
Lemon WedgesDirections:1) In a very large pot, place beer and Old Bay Seasoning and bring to a boil. Place strainer in pot.
2) On top of strainer, place crab legs,shrimp,  lemons and garlic.
3) Steam for NO MORE than 5 minutes. Shrimp will be pink.

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript.
