My Best Clam Chowder
I made this soup for dinner tonight, and it was awesome!!! After reading some reviews though, I did add more veggies to it (simply because I never measure them, but know it was more than called for). I also used FIVE cans of clams and their juice! Next time however, I will fry some bacon and use the fat to add to the trinity for the veggies to cook in. I did add some finely chopped honey smoked spiral ham, simply because I had so much left over from Christmas. I also added some Bay seasoning to it..and served it with sourdough bread. GREAT SOUP...will definitely make this again........and again!

French Onion Soup Gratinee
I made this soup today - LOVED IT. It's a simple recipe and I love the flavour of adding the balsamic and worchester. I added a cup of Red wine though and only about 3 tablespoons of butter to the onions. I also used about 4 small bay leaves because I love the flavour they add to soups. Next time though I will add a more concentrated beef broth though to give it a really 'rich' taste. Aside from these little tweaks! PERFECTO! I will make this again..........and again.......and AGAIN!

Rosemary Braised Lamb Shanks
Made these today. I was actually sick, so I propped my laptop open and had my husband do it. He followed the recipe exactly (halved, we did 3 shanks), and it was very good. If I had made it, I would have added more rosemary and thyme, and more spices to the sauce. Next time I will also add mushrooms. The meat was 'fall off the bone" goodness!
