  1. Great clam chowder!! Very easy. Made just as written and I think next time I make this I will add some pepper. Oh, and this makes a TON, so there are plenty of leftovers. Thanks for sharing!
  2. Excellent chowder! Just like my old recipe but better! Thanks!


I AM A MARRIED MOTHER OF 3. COOKING IS A PASSION OF MINE. FINE FOOD MARKETS AND GROCERY STORES ARE MY "HANG OUTS". I LOVE THE FACT THAT THERE IS NO END IN LEARNING. I ENJOY THE WHOLE PROCESS OF COOKING, FROM FINDING A NEW RECIPE, GROCERY SHOPPING, EXPERIMENTING -- RIGHT TO THE DINNER TABLE. MY FAMILY APPRECIATES THE EFFORT I PUT INTO MEALS WHICH IS A WONDERFUL REWARD. ~NO PICKY EATERS HERE~ MY CHILDREN'S MINDS ARE OPEN TO ALL TYPES OF FOOD (WHEN IN MEXICO MY YOUNGEST SON ORDERED QUAIL AT A RESTAURANT AND LOVED IT). <img src="">recipe swap 2008 <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> Recipe Swap September 2008 <img src=""> Recipe Swap October 2008 <img src=""> Recipe Swap November 2008 <img src=""> Recipe Swap December '08 <img src=""> Recipe Swap January '09 <img src=""> Recipe Swap February '09 <img src=""> Recipe Swap March '09 <img src=""> Recipe Swap April '09 <img src=""> Recipe Swap May '09 <img src=""> Recipe Swap June '09 AND July '09 <img src=""> Recipe Swap August '09 href=""> <img border="0" src="" alt="Web Page Counter"></a> <img style="visibility:hidden;width:0px;height:0px;" border=0 width=0 height=0 src="*xJmx*PTEyMzc5MTY4MjkyNTkmcHQ9MTIzNzkxNzAxNTY3NyZwPTMyMzAwMiZkPW1hcGxvY28mZz*xJnQ9Jm89ZTM*OTQ2YjBkZDAwNDY*ZTg2YzM5MTIzY2E4ZjI5MjY=.gif" /><a href=""><img border=0 src="" alt="Visitor Map"></a><a href="">Create your own visitor map!</a>
