Quahogs are another name for hard-shell clams, and I know that at least in our region here in Maine, it refers to larger clams (as opposed to cherrystones). These are fairly easy to make, the worst part is the shucking, but I usually pass that job over to someone else. I eat these anytime I can get them. Update 10/16/2006. I've adjusted the cook times. We like them much better when they were cooked longer.
I'm not a huge fan of zucchini, but like everyone else, I seem to end up with an abundance of them from the garden. I found this recipe on another site (can't remember which one) and I really enjoy it, though I can't say its all that healthy. Gotta love the cheese!
This is the man's favorite stew recipe. I use a 5-quart crockpot and this recipe just fits in it. He prefers a thinner broth, so this isn't a thick, gravy like stew, but its a very tasty one!! His grandfather gave me the hint of adding cabbage to the stew, it definately enhances the flavor! Beef stew meat can also be substituted.
Good comfort soup. I like to make extra bacon to crumble on top. It does have a little heat to it, so if your taste buds are sensitive, cut back on the red and black peppers. Recipe comes from Southern Living.
