Last week, we put some Toronto community members' culinary skills to the test with a disaster dining challenge. One of the contestants, Chief of Emergency Management Ontario, Dan Hefkey shared with us these yummy recipes with canned crab for when you are in a pinch.  We thought they would be perfect for Food Friday. Thanks for sharing them Dan!
