Specialty Recipe

Virginia Crabcakes

After a busy day of governing the Commonwealth of Virginia, I like to sit down to my favorite dinner of Virginia crabcakes. Some days, if I am lucky, I can indulge in my favorite dessert, which is fudge cake. I am including these recipes so that you too can enjoy these delicious treats. I encourage you all to come visit the beautiful Commonwealth of Virginia. James S Gilmore, III, Governor of Virginia
