Caramel Glazed Scallops - Celebrity Cook Along

Did anyone else feel at a loss when you couldn't get into Blogger on Thursday and Friday? I almost always post Foodie Friday's. This week when I couldn't get into blogger, I had to pass on Foodie Friday. Also, we were camping in the lovely 40 - 50 degree weather this weekend, so no Pink Saturday either!! Then I come home and my Thursday post of From The Good Life is noo where to be found!!! I don't save my posts anywhere else, so it is gone! I've tried before to recreate a post I've lost and just come up with the words.

It's good to be back and I am thrilled to join this month's celebrity cook along over at Happier Than A Pig in Mud features Paula Deen's recipes. I love Paula, she's so entertaining to watch. I've made quite a few of Paula's recipes. My intent was to try a new recipe for this month's event but time just wasn't on my side.

I've made Paula's recipe for Caramel Glazed Sea Scallops several times. I love the way the scallops caramelize with this recipe. This easy preparation makes a beautiful presentation. You can find the original post here!


  1. Hi Julie! Your scallops look great! I remember eating the little ones that were breaded and deep fried then dipped in cocktail sauce (bad I know!). If I was camping in 40 degree weather I know I'd be happy to be home! Thanks so much for joining the Cook-Along:@)

  2. Oh yum! I love scallops but recently have developed a shellfish allergy, so I'll have to figure out how to do this with chicken or fish! I'm still waiting for some comments to come back, and I had to re-edit the post for the last day of Browniepalooza. It's making me thing about moving away from Blogger...

  3. It looks delicious on the plate, great shot! That glaze looks fantastic. I'm allergic but my husband would love this dish.

  4. This looks delicious, and I will definitely need to try this :) Hope you had a good weekend.

    P.S. I am SO happy Blogger is back in full swing!

  5. This is definitely going in my scallops! The glaze looks like it makes the dish..

  6. It was a frustrating time with Blogger being down ~ happy it is working now!

    The scallops do look delicious! I don't make them often and now I have a craving :)

  7. I was very behind schedule already and then Blogger went down for 2 DAYS!!! When it did come back up, I had lost an entire post that I had already finished, but had to start over. Anyway, I have a husband that is wild about scallops. I can't wait to try this recipe. Thanks for posting it.

  8. Leave it to Paula to figure out a way to add sugar & butter to a healthy seafood!! LOL
    Your bright plate & pretty green beans on the side makes them look very appetizing, though.
    Thanks for the link to the recipe!


  9. Your scallops look delish~ I'll have to check out Paula's recipe, thanks for the link :-)
