There are several recipes that I have been wanting to try, but New Year’s Eve gave me the opportunity to try the scallops.

I have included a before and after the oven photo. I tweaked the recipe in one way. Instead of salt I used Old Bay; I do that a lot. The scallops turned out really well. I will be back to Judy’s blog for other recipes. Next time I will try a dessert, the only question is which one….
