New Cooking Adventures for #SundaySupper

So this weeks theme is all about trying something new. Something we’ve never made before, something we would like to experiment with. So let new cooking adventures consume your Sunday!!! Grab a cup of coffee and dive into new ventures in the kitchen this week! This fabulous event is hosted by The Foodie Army Wife. Thanks for hosting such a daring event Conni!!

Besides once you see what I’ve chosen your going to want to check out my recipe, one because it rocked and two because, well I despise anything fishy. I vowed to never cook anything sea worthy in my kitchen. Like ever. Never. However………I did it. I’m not sure what made me choose a seafood dish, there are plenty of things I have yet to try. Baking a cheesecake for example, or making Polenta, or how about a simple coffee cake, I’ve never made any of those, I’ve never even made a Prime Rib or Beef Tenderloin yet! Gosh the more I write this the more I wonder why I chose a fishy smelly dish!


SundaySupperOh yes that’s right, my husband. He loves Scallops and I love making him happy. I love making him things he loves. I knew I wouldn’t eat them and I was afraid it would smell up my kitchen, or worse even, my whole house!! AH! However when my mom and I passed the “Fish” department at the local Meat store down the street (our new favorite place since moving) I couldn’t help but grab a package of scallops. Mom promised me that they wouldn’t smell up my whole kitchen. I knew my mother-in-law was coming for dinner this week so I planned it around that and now had 3 people I could feed them too (luckily my sister is on my side when it comes to smelly yucky fish items!). I went on the search for a Scallop recipe that would be easy yet good, how was I to know since I don’t even like them you ask??? I didn’t……I went with my mom’s opinion on baking them in a breadcrumb mixture. Not only a breadcrumb mixture but when I read the recipe and realized the only thing I didn’t have in my kitchen was the actual breadcrumbs, I decided to make my own!! I used a handful of whole wheat saltine crackers and Italian seasoning and popped them right in the food processor and wala……..instant breadcrumbs!!! Yay me!

  1. When I go out to eat, scallops is the one item I order more than any other. It is my favorite seafood, but I don’t much care for cooking any kind of “fish” at home. I do occasionally, and scallops are always my fave!

  2. My hubby and daughter love scallops too and would die for this dish. Have to make it for them!! Kudos to you for doing it!!

  3. Perfect timing… I was just thinking last week that I wanted to try scallops at home after seeing them at our farmer’s market. Now I’m not so timid 😉

    1. Diana, if someone that hates them like I do can make them…….anyone can LOL!! 🙂 Enjoy!

  4. I could eat scallops almost any day and any way. I have to try this one with the crunchy breadcrumbs. Yum!

  5. Fabulous dish! I’m the scallop lover in the house, but I haven’t been able to convert the hubby. Maybe your yummy recipe will do the trick 🙂

  6. We love scallops and I can’t wait to give your recipe a try. How can you go wrong with half a cup of butter and all that cheese?! Yum!

  7. Now that is going outside of your comfort zone :). Scallops are so delicious and not in the least bit fishy. Just simply divine. Your version sounds fantastic!
