About this Cook
I love to cook. I am into good old comfort foods. When I cook I put lots of time and love into it and as a result I cook large quantities so we have plenty of leftovers. As long as you are going to go to the trouble to cook a nice meal you may as well cook enough to have leftovers. We pretty much only cook diner here and have leftovers for other meals and snacks. I cook for 5 people daily.
My favorite things to cook
I cook on the grill year round, everything from barbecue chicken, steaks, roasts, stuffed peppers, whole chicken, game hens, ducks, venison, turkeys, burgers, fish, sausage etc etc etc. I also love a large slow cooker we have that I can set up in the morning and have a meal ready at night.

Maryland Crab Soup
Great MD crab soup. I use basically the same ingredients. Instead of so much water try using half V8 or tomato juice. Makes for a heartier broth. We use the same basic recipe to make a seafood chowder also. Just add some cut up steamed shrimp, clams, muscles etc.

New England Clam Chowder I
I have been using this same basic recipe my whole life. Hearty enough for a main meal. I had a big meaty ham bone left from the holidays. I cut fat and meat off of that and substituted for the bacon. Being on the Chesapeake Bay I can get big chowder clams for about $2/doz. I steam them up and then use the water from the clams and from the steam pot as a substitute for the water in this recipe. I cut up my clams in larger pieces and still add the canned clams suggested in the recipe. Add extra potatoes or put in some instant mashed potatoe powder to thicken as needed. I sometimes add celery early on so it is soft and adds flavor.
