My Best Clam Chowder
One great chowder recipe! Turned it into more of a seafood chowder though, but used this recipe as a base. Like many previous suggestions used 6 strips of bacon then browned the veggies in the bacon fat. Then followed the rest of the recipe as directed. After all was ready to serve, added 2 drained cans of crab meat, 1/2 pound of small shrimp, and 1/2 pound of prawns. Really could have added any seafood. Did use the red wine vinegar suggestion, and it did add nice flavor. Will use this recipe over and over.

Black Magic Cake
Ok this is my second review of this cake. The first time I gave it 5stars because I added chocolate chips and used a bundt pan. I thought that because I had added the chips that those sank the bottom of the pan causing the lower half of the cake to stick and not come out of the pan clean. Otherwise it was excellent. Well, I made it again and followed the recipe exactly. I used a cupcake tin this time and sprayed the tin generously instead of using liners. Not one cupcake came out without crumbling in half. Hmmmmm....apparently it wasn't my chocolate chips last time that made it stick to the pan. This recipe just crumbled both times. I LOVE the flavor of this cake, so any suggestions on what I can do to make this not crumble and get it out of the pan would be welcome.

Toscana Soup
Fantastic!! Tasted very, very close to the one served at Olive Garden!! I did use ground turkey sausage, and browned it leaving it in big chunks. But other than that, followed the recipe. Even my soup-hating hubby, ate 2 bowls!!! Will make this again, and again, and again.......
