Ingredients

1 tablespoon olive oil
3/4 cup chopped scallions
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cups seafood broth or clam juice
2 cups low-fat (1%) milk
3 tablespoons dry sherry
1/2 teaspoon Lemon Pepper Seasoning
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
Pinch cayenne
1 pound crabmeat, picked free of shell
1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives

Directions

Heat the oil in a large saucepan until hot. Add the scallions and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 3 – 4 minutes. Stir in the flour; cook 1 minute. Slowly add the broth and milk; bring to a boil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until smooth and bubbly, about 8 minutes. Stir in the sherry, Paula Deen Lemon Pepper Seasoning, white pepper, and cayenne. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, until the flavors are blended and the soup thickens slightly, about 5 minutes longer. Stir in crabmeat; heat through. Sprinkle with chives. Serve at once.

I just loved your show. I am so glad that I can still reach you on the web. I too am from La. Was born in Morgan City. One of the first baby girls born in the Lakewood Hospital there. My mother had married a military man. and we traveled around a lot. My brother took over our fathers house after he passed. I was just telling him the other day that I miss the smells of home. My dad's house is on the Atchafalaya River. So the smells of fish and the salt water smell so good this time of the year. Paula you are a very special person. and I know a lot of people think so. I will always be your number one fan up here with all these Yankies. You are truly a devine southern woman... Don't let anyone change you honey...

ALTHOUGH I CANNOT AFFORD ANY OF THE DEAN RECIPE BOOKS, I THOROUGHLY ENJOY ALL OF THE FOOD NETWORK SHOWS THAT ARE PRESENTED EACH DAY ON THE FOOD CHANNEL.  PAULA IS SUCH AN INSPIRATION TO ME WITH HER FAMILY MEMORIES AND FUNNY MOMENTS.

AND, NOW THAT YOU HAVE A LIGHTER SIDE TO THE RECIPES, I ALSO ENJOY MAKING THESE RECIPES SINCE I AM DIABETIC.

THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE TO ENTERTAIN AND EDUCATE ME WITH YOUR WONDERFUL RECIPES!

SINCERELY,

MARIA

Paula, I am glad to know that I am not the only person who makes Easter Baskets for their adult children and mail them across the United States. My Daughter lives in Long Beach, CA and I not only sent her a basket but her husband and my granddaughter Reese. We also buy special Russel Stover Bunnies for each child too. My husband has the list in his phone... Sara .. Cookies 'n Crème.... Sidney and Stephen.. Peanut Butter Etc. It one of my favorite things to do for my kids.. no matter how old they get. And passing it along to my Grandchildren. It's even more special to me knowing we share a family tradition. Blessings and Happy Easter!!
