Seafood Chowder
Great recipe. I made some changes: I put chopped mini red potatoes with skins left on and diced carrots and onions in a pot that I had just fried small pieces of bacon. I drained the bacon fat and removed the bacon pieces and set aside. I added four tablespoons of sherry and steamed the veggies in it. When the veggies were a bit cooked, but still quite firm, I added a can of low sodium New England clam chowder and two tablespoons of light cream cheese. Meanwhile, in a frying pan, I put three tablespoons of butter and cooked on low heat haddock, previously frozen jumbo shrimp, salmon, and a bit of lobster and scallops. Cooking the seafood a bit in butter exaggerates the seafood flavour. I added 1% milk to the large pot and added chopped dill, parsley, the cayenne and my secret ingredient that a chef told me about: Pernod. Just a capful. Incredible. Nova Scotia Seafood Chowder - delicious. Note: no corn was added.

Turkey Pot Pie I
This was very good. I made a few changes...instead of using chicken bouillon I used the homemade turkey stock. Boil the carcass and bones after picking all of the meat off of the turkey and put in pot, cover with water and throw in leftover gravy, carrots, onions - anything for taste. Simmer all afternoon and then drain the broth off the bones into another pot. Put in fridge and then, when the fat hardens on the top, scrape it off and discard. Now you have a great stock - a REAL and healthy alternative to high-sodium bouillon. The taste is completely different and much, much better. After I added stock and simmered the Pot Pie mixture, I added mushrooms and peas. I also added summer savory (sage) and rosemary and thyme. I did not add a flour mixture. I then made a home-made biscuit recipe and rolled it thin, placed the pot pie mixture into a casserole dish when the mixture was hot, then put the biscuit mixture on top and baked in the oven at 350 for about 15 minutes. I made biscuits with the leftover biscuit dough and served with a salad. Awesome.

Quinoa and Black Beans
The whole family loved this. Even my very, very picky daughte! I halved the black beans and used chicken broth. I also added red pepper and green pepper for added color/nutrition. I cut an avocado in half and removed the pit, and spooned the quinoa into the avocado. It looked amazing and tasted delicious with the bites of avocado. I made it last night and I'm making a huge batch tonight and adding tofu. We can eat it for lunch throughout the week! Delicious. OH - I also used frozen cilantro cubes which worked fab.
