Fran and John Krause have spent a lot of time on the Delaware shore where John grew up. They have a home at Bethany Beach where they enjoy time with family. When any of us visit, we go to restaurants where we can crack fresh crab s or enjoy crabcakes that are almost as good as these. Quality crab meat is the key.

When Laura Lombardo got married in the Outer Banks, Fran fixed these for about 18 family members one night prior to the wedding.
