  • Melt the butter in a pot over medium-low heat; cook and stir the onion, garlic, mushrooms, and Cajun seasoning in the melted butter until the onion is tender, but not yet browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in the flour. Pour in the milk; cook and stir until thickened and beginning to bubble. Add the scallops, salt, and pepper; continue cooking until the scallops are opaque, 5 to 7 minutes. Fold the vegetables into the mixture and cook until the vegetables are reheated, 2 to 3 minutes. Serve immediately.

This was so awesome. I fed six people off this and they all loved it. According to my husband the bite is like fresh horseradish. It has a bite however it goes away quickly. Read More

this was pretty good but I accidentally let it boil down a little too much... it turned into a sauce and so I made spagetti and ate it over spagetti. my husband liked it a lot more than I did. Read More

This was quick easy and fantastic! I didn't have all the vegetables so I just used fresh corn of the cob and I used corn starch instead of all-pourpose flour but otherwise I followed the directions and it was wonderful. The whole family enjoyed it even my picky 7 year old! Read More

I've made this twice now and I can't give this enough praise. It is one of the best soups I've ever had and it's so easy to make! I normally add a bit more milk (I use about 3 - 4 cups of milk) than what is requested just because I like more broth in my soups. It always comes out delicious! Read More

We made this for New Year's Eve dinner. Easy to make with using frozen vegetables to save a lot of prep time. We also added some half-and-half in addition to the milk. When we added in all the vegetables at the end there didn't seem to be enough liquid and the half-and-half added some depth. Read More
