My Best Clam Chowder
Family said it was the best clam chowder they have ever had. I loved it too, but the calories!!! I cut my vegetables pretty small and they did cook fairly quickly, so I would recommend checking them frequently right from the start. (I would have preferred to have turned off the burner the moment the veggies became tender.) I cooked the half and half mixture until it was very thick prior to adding the vegetables, since I knew I would be watering it down with the clam juice/water mixture. I never did add all of the clam juice/water, just enough to get the consistency I was looking for in the clam chowder. I did make one MISTAKE, I added Balsamic vinegar instead of the red wine vinegar. I thought maybe I had ruined the dish, but it was delicious with the Balsamic. Not sure if I would make again, even though it was very good because of the calories involved.

Slow Cooker Texas Pulled Pork
Wasn't wow yummy. It was okay and had a nice flavor, but I will continue to search for a better recipe.

Pork Stew in Green Salsa (Guisado de Puerco con Tomatillos)
Husband said it was the best "chili verde" he has ever had! I followed the recipe exactly, but used Oregano 1: 2 ratio as a substitute for marjoram since I didn't have Marjoram on hand. I didn't feel like simmering it on the stovetop, so I threw everything into a crockpot and then went horseback riding and both my husband and I came home to a delicious meal. Thank you so much for this recipe!
