I've been wanting to try a clam chowder for so long and I decided to give this recipe a try. Making it, I was reminded of the cream soups I usually made - saute veggies, add a roux, add cream, etc. Maybe it was the fact that I only used 2 cans of whole baby clams and 2% milk (I accidentally wrecked the 3 cups of half-and-half I'd set aside for this recipe so had to substitute) that made the final product just "meh". I added some carrots, celery and a can of peaches and cream corn (which I usually love in the canned versions of clam chowder), and it was still missing something - it was still a bit bland. Pureed some of the clams and potatoes...still not right. Finally, I added a packet of chicken stock and had my "AHA" moment! Next time, I'll try using all clam juice and NOT mess up the cream! Overall, a good recipe.
