Shirley's Maine Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2010
A true New England chowder. No need to add any thickening agents...the potatoes and cream do that perfectly! I chop a handful of celery leaves and add a bit of dry marjoram to the potato, celery and clam broth while they simmer together. I too prefer salt pork to bacon. I often make a "base" with this to freeze for later, especially when clams are plentiful in the warm months. I make it up to the point where I would add the cream and freeze in quart sized containers. When I'm ready to use it, I thaw the base in the refrigerator and heat slowly with the cream. I also prefer adding cracked black pepper to taste individually.

Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2010
My husband usually turns his nose up to anything that involves ground turkey. This passed with flying colors. It really was delicious and simple to make. I recently began using quinoa and have only used it as a side dish. This is a great way of adding a really healthy grain to your diet. Thanks for the recipe!

Angel Hair Pasta with Shrimp and Basil

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
Great flavor...the fresh basil gives it a nice bright taste. Only comment I would make is to skip the olive oil in the pasta cooking water. Adding oil to the pasta prevents the tomato from clinging to the pasta after it is cooked. I drizzled a bit of extra virgin OO to the finished plate along with a bit of finely minced basil.

Thai Chicken Curry with Pineapple

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
This was excellent! As good as our local Thai place. I added yellow squash and sweet potatoes and used my rice cooker to make jasmine rice. Everyone loved this one.

Beefy Mushroom Barley Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
Very good winter soup. One question though...How can you make a beef soup vegetarian by using vegetable broth? The beef will still be there..

Wrapped Salmon

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2008
I make this quite often. It's especially good for a "company" dinner. I have made it in bite-sized portions for a cocktail party. It was a real hit!

Kale Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2007
Thank You, Scotty! It's easy to tell that you are a real New Bedford guy. This was wonderful. I've been trying to find this recipe ever since my favorite restaurant on the Cape closed. "Kadee's" in Orleans had a kale soup on the menu that was so similar to your recipe. I find that it is even better if it has time to be refrigerated overnight and reheated. All I can say though is, "Wicked Good"!!!

Yakisoba Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2007
Very good and easy. I too added additional vegetables and bean sprouts. I used reduced sodium soy sauce. I used less than was called for in the recipe because it's easier to add it at the table than to have too salty a taste in the finished dish. I tend to follow the cooking commandment 'Taste as you go', it usually works out in the end.

Sea Bass Barbecue

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2007
Happy to be the first to review this one. Fantastic!!!! I had a beautiful thick filet and grilled it. The flavor of the fish was not overpowered by the marinade. Super yummy...picking bass up again tomorrow while it's still available!

Ray's Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2007
Fantastic marinade for boneless chicken! I marinaded several extra breasts and will use them for lunch in salads. I added both lemon and lime zest and fresh ground pepper instead of lemon pepper but followed the rest of the recipie as written. Loved it!!!

Veal Oscar

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2007
Very good special dinner for my husband and myself. I did substitute hollandaise and also used fresh lobster rather than crab. I live in New England, so lobster is affordable in the summertime.

Italian Breaded Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2007
Fantastic recipe. Just the same a my late(wonderful) Mother-in Law made them. She, too was Sicilian. These are wonderful when served with home-made (a New England thing) applesauce.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2006
I have made these several times since I found this recipe here. My 24 yr old daughter (who would never try brussels sprouts) asked me to make them for Christmas dinner. Very easy and quite yummy! A real keeper. Thank you so much.

Rosemary-Scented Pork Loin Stuffed With Roasted Garlic, Dried Apricots and Cranberries and Port Wine Pan Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2006
Wonderful way to use a pork loin. It was on sale this week at my local market and I prepared it for Sunday dinner. Excellent flavor! I added dried cherries to the fruit mix only because I had them. The sauce was superb! This is a real keeper. Many thanks!

Cranberry Walnut Relish II

Yummy, yummy, yummy! I thank you as well as your Mom for such a wonderful addition to our Thanksgiving dinner. I used pecans rather than walnuts but the result was great. It is very pretty as well!

Salmon Fillets with Creamy Dill

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2006
I served this for dinner last week. I'm not always a big salmon fan, but I am now! I have to take exception to some of the reviews that said the sauce was oily or greasy. You must not substitute low or nonfat mayonaise, as they are made with chemical ingredients that were not made to be heated. Julia Child (Bless her) had it right when she said that there was no substitute for butter. This will be a regular in my house. The extra sauce was great with roasted asparagus. I did add a bit of lemon zest to the sauce and was heavy with fresh ground pepper, but a super way to enjoy salmon which is a moderately priced fish.
