Ho-Ho-Healthy Christmas Meal!

One of my favorite seafood is crab legs, so you have to imagine my excitement when I had it for Christmas dinner. Let me tell you, I enjoyed cooking it as much as eating it!  I know I know, crab legs can be pricey, which is why the key word here is Christmas...Merry Christmas to me!  If you ever feel like splurging on your cuisine, this is a way to go!  It's easy, delicious, and healthy!
