As a busy mom of 4, I often have the challenge of finding recipes that are tasty enough for kids, yet not the traditional chicken-nuggets-or-hot-dogs kind of menu my kids would eat everyday if they were allowed to do so. Add the convenience of using the crockpot, which is such an amazing time saver, and you've got the makings of a great recipe.

This simple seafood soup feeds 8-10 people, and has the Kenny children seal of approval. It is also fairly inexpensive, with ingredients that you can find in any grocery store. We usually serve it with homemade bread & a big salad.


3 cans of cheddar cheese soup, 3 cans of cream of potato soup, 6 cans of milk, 1 8oz. package of imitation crab meat, 1 can of chopped or minced clams, 1 can of shrimp, choice of spices to taste.

First, empty all cans of soup (both kinds) into the crockpot. Add 6 cans of milk, using the soup cans. Mix together with a whisk. Add clams & shrimp, including liquid in the cans. Mix with whisk. Cut up the crab meat into bite-sized pieces. Mix with whisk again. Add your choices of spices to taste and whisk one final time. Cook in crockpot on high for 4 to 6 hours. Stir before serving.

This recipe serves approximately 10 bowls of soup, and freezes very well. For added flair, you may also use canned crab or lump crab. This soup can be very versatile. If you do not enjoy potatoes in your soup, I recommend you use 6 cans of cheddar cheese soup, leaving out the cream of potato soup completely. Hope you enjoy the soup!
