Teresa and husband Everett hang out in the garden that inspires so many of her recipes.

"I make this Warm Crab Dip frequently," says Teresa Bacon of Raleigh, North Carolina. "I like to serve it as an appetizer when I entertain friends. I brought it to my neighbor's party along with homemade sourdough bread and it was a hit.

"I also serve this dip with sliced cucumbers or tomatoes from my garden. What grows in the garden dictates what I cook. When you are overrun with veggies, you try to fix them in as many different ways as you can so as not to get tired of them. This crab dip is one of my husband's favorites.

"I have a passion for cooking. It is therapeutic for me. And I enjoy cooking for those I love and seeing them enjoy what I cook. Cooking to me is love and comfort."
