Squash and Green Bean Saute Side Dish
This is a great recipe to make when your garden is overflowing with green beans, squash and cherry tomatoes! I used fresh parsley as that was also prolific in our garden. I used have a little EVOO & butter to cook the veggies in and waited until the very last minute to add the parsley and tomatoes so it stayed fresh. Everyone loved it!

Lobster Casserole
I had a one pint container of leftover lobster (that I picked out of the shell) from a special occasion a couple of days ago. I wanted to use it up with a recipe that was more 'dinner' like instead of cold lobster salad, so I came to (of course!) allrecipes.com and plugged in my special ingredient. There weren't many 'hot' lobster recipes, but this one stood out. I didn't have cream or regular bread so I used whole milk and rye bread. I also added a little sharp cheddar and parmesan (less than a cup total of both) to the sauce, along with just a sprinkle of Old Bay seasoning (just because I like things kicked up a tad). I husband raved the rest of the night about this AND I think it took me LESS time to make than the recipe actually called for! LOVE that on a weeknight! I know I changed a few things on this recipe and gave it 5 stars, but I really think it's the kind of recipe that you can tweak to make it your own with just a 'little here and a little there'. Enjoy!

Bab's New England Seafood Chowder
I cook for our chiropractic patients on Monday nights so I needed to make something that would feed 20+ people and not take all day to make. I also wanted to use up some frozen seafood in the freezer. This fit the bill! ALL our patients loved it! I made just a couple of changes/additions to accommodate what I already had on hand. A large can of clam juice for the seafood stock, imitation bacon bits instead of bacon (I know, I know, but I have a husband who can't stand bacon-go figure!), and frozen tilapia instead of cod. EVEN with all the frozen/canned substitutions, everyone LOVED it! I did add some sherry at the end because... it just goes great with creamy seafood soups! Also... very important.. it was true to time... I love and respect that. Great job, javaqueen!
