But it's NOT crab -- it's imitation crabmeat so it's CHEAP... and delicious! I created this one because I really like the cream chowders that I've savored in New England. We have trouble obtaining good seafood where I live here in southern Ohio, so I decided to make due with what I COULD get. One thing that's always cheap and available around here is frozen imitation crabmeat. So I gave this a lot of thought, did some preliminary experimentation, and this dish was the ultimate result. I'm very happy with this recipe and I find it quite similar in flavor to a rich clam chowder. The idea of using local fresh and common vegetables worked out well for boosting the flavor too. While the veggies enhance the dish, make no mistake about it, this recipe definitely conveys the full ambiance of a seafood chowder. Cooking and prep times are approximate. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. big pat.
This is by far the best clam chowder recipe ever. My Mom used to make this and there was never any left for the next day. I use minced clams because I don't like the whole ones, but whole clams can be substituted easily.
A little different delicious variation of a tuna salad sandwich. This recipe comes from
Aunt Bee's Mayberry Cookbook. The recipe was submited my Sherry Hyatt of Kingsport, TN
The recipe says it serves 8, but I usually only get four sandwiches out of a single recipe
You know, growing up, I had all sorts of funny combos of food I liked. This one seems to be the one I am still eating when I want a snack and nothing else in the house sounds good. I love it with Chicken Noodle Soup.
I'm getting tired of seeing the so-called tortilla soup recipes running around that are nothing but a glorified chicken soup with tortillas added. Here's the real McCoy. Similar to the recipe at Houston's restaurant (modified, of course, to suit my tastes)
For a beef version check out my recipe #261711.
I LOOOOOOVE smoked oyster stew!! This is my own easy version! It's delish! Enjoy! :) Time does not include cooking the bacon, I always have cooked bacon on hand in the freezer that I use for ocaisions like this.
I think this is our #1 all time family favorite and it's often requested for birthday dinners. It's the 'Bestest' because my daughter described it as such when she was little. This freezes well and I've added directions for that and for reheating.
This is part of my "make after work" soup collection that I reserve for rainy and/or miserable days. It is rich, tasty, and so soothing! You need about an hour to make it (less if you are fast) and an hour to let it sit on the stove. This is an Italian style lentil soup.
