My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Scallops In Tomato Sauce

Today is my wonderful sister's birthday. Don't worry I'm not telling your age. She is younger than me. The whole world is younger than me. Living in California she eats more seafood and veggies than bacon grease and meatloaf.

This is an old recipe that I found again in the mess of cook books Joyce sent last week. I thought she might enjoy making this. She may or may not remember it from years ago.

Happy Birthday Sweetie!

Scallops In Tomato Sauce
4-6 servings
print recipe

2 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 pounds sea scallops
Parsley, finely chopped
2/3 cup chili sauce, homemade or Heinz
1/3 cup catsup, Heinz
1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons prepared mustard
1/8 teaspoon garlic salt

Combine all ingredients for sauce and set aside.

Saute scallops in butter until brown and tender, 5 to 8 minutes. Pour sauce around scallops and heat just to boiling. DO NOT boil. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.


  1. The scallops in Alaska are the best in the world. Large, meaty & there is a guy who sells fresh Kodiak scallops right from his truck once a week - yum! In the Wednesday newspaper the location of where his truck will be on Thursdays is posted. He also has fresh shrimp. The seafood here is amazing.

    Happy Birthday to your sister!

  2. I have been craving scallops let alone being "normal" again!!!...:)JP
