My Best Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
Minor adjustments and this is AMAZING: I use 5 cans of chopped clams instead of 3 (can you ever have too many?), 1.5 cups chopped onion, 1.5 cups sliced celery, 1.5 cups sliced carrots, and I skip the potatoes. I also replace the quart of half-and-half with 1 pint half-and-half and 1 pint skim milk. Made it for Thanksgiving dinner this year, and the entire (HUGE) pot disappeared! Also perfect for cold days when you need to heat things up a bit, and lasts for a good few meals if you just pair it with some sourdough or french bread.

Maryland Crab Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
My husband prefers this with a bit more liquid in it, so instead of 3 cups of water, we toss in the full gallon of water. Sub in peas for lima beans and use 1.5 to 2 cups of each vegetable to bulk things up a little. Other ingredients are multiplied by roughly a factor of 2, and we use the cheapest crab we can find (honestly, it doesn't make much difference in the soup, so why not go cheap?). Wonderful soup, and easy enough that my husband can make it all by himself!

Guacamole

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
I've made this for multiple gatherings and it's ALWAYS a huge hit. Even people who don't usually like guacamole love this stuff! Requested again and again, and good even several days later.

Double Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
My husband prefers this without the sun-dried tomatoes, and uses less of the bruschetta mix per bread/cheese. Otherwise, we adore it! Delicious and relatively healthy - sometimes, it makes up our whole dinner.

Cajun Chicken and Sausage Gumbo

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
Added chicken and shrimp to the recipe just to bulk it up a little more and my husband LOVES it. He probably requests it once a month, and it takes us three days to finish it off! The roux is actually quite easy - just stir constantly with a whisk and watch the color. Once it's roughly the color of milk chocolate, you're ready to move on.

Seared Sea Scallops

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
SUPER easy and SUPER good. My husband came home with a pound of dry sea scallops and wanted a nice, light prep for them - this definitely fit the bill. It's mild, simple, and doesn't obscure the taste of the scallops too much. One of the few "perfect!" reviews from his very picky tummy. My only comment is that I ended up with a lot of extra flour/seasoning mix - you could probably cut this recipe down by half, or possibly even down to a quarter the original measurements, and still have enough.

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
I modified the recipe a bit for speed, but the flavor should be roughly the same, so my rating is based on that. It's delicious! I skipped the marinating step since I knew I'd have plenty of sauce for soaking and this was ready in half an hour. I used 1.5 lbs salmon (2 fillets) with half of the other ingredients as follows: 1. In a small bowl, mix 1.5 tbsp lemon juice, 1/8 tsp pepper, a pinch of garlic powder, 8 tsp low sodium soy sauce, 8 tsp brown sugar, 2 tbsp water, and 2 tbsp olive oil. 2. Rip a piece of aluminum foil large enough to wrap around a fillet roughly 1.5 to 2 times. Place the fillet on one half facedown, pour half the sauce over it, and then fold the foil over it. Pinch the very edges together, folding them over twice to make a well-sealed packet with some extra space inside (the packet will puff up a little in the oven). 3. Place salmon packets in the oven, preheated to 440 degrees. Bake for 10 minutes, then flip and bake for another 10. Serve alone or with a side - YUM!

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
A lot of work, but so yummy and worth it in the end! Everyone I make it for loves it, especially when I use andouille sausage in place of the Italian (makes it saltier, so skip the 1/2 tsp later in the recipe).

Thai Spicy Basil Chicken Fried Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
Delicious and quick! So easy, even my husband (who hates to cook) can make it, and so flexible that we can use basically any little bits of meat and veggies leftover in the fridge to fill it out.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
I love these pancakes! I make them every few months when I need a morning carb fix, and they always go over well with whoever's around to share them (usually my husband and a friend). They're wonderfully fluffy and absolutely delicious, especially when topped with a little butter and maple syrup. Or apple butter and powdered sugar. Or strawberries and strawberry syrup. Or butter, cinnamon, and sugar. Or...

Pecan Pie V

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
This pie is a CLEAR winner. It's basically the only pie my husband will eat (he has vowed to never again eat a store-bought pecan pie), and everyone else who tries it looooves it. One of our friends who usually eats quite slowly (and has a very mild sweet tooth) took three slices of this pie and wolfed them down! Everyone is surprised at how perfectly sweet and nutty it is; better than the sickly-sweet corn syrup-based pies and it's always a hit.
