New England Clam Chowder

New England Clam Chowder - this is the perfect recipe and it's easy to adjust to your liking! Use canned or frozen clams or cook fresh if they're available.

So last week I posted Philly Cheesesteak Sliders (before I knew how badly our Vikings were going to be trounced!) This week, I thought what the heck. New England Clam Chowder was in order. For the Superbowl, eh? You betcha.

Cheesy Potato Sausage Soup – Instant Pot or Stove-top

Cheesy Potato & Sausage Soup. OMG Soooo Good! Make it thick or thinner if you'd like, add more or less cheese. Try it with Ham!!

Oh, but I do love me some soup. Especially in the fall. And since I had some sausage left after making Smoked Sausage and White Bean Soup in the Instant Pot the other day, I thought I’d make more soup, but take it in another direction.

Simple American Style Soused Chicken

Here’s another one of my recipes that tastes and looks all “gourmet” but gets dinner on the table in no time at all – Soused Chicken. I’ve made this for years and the somewhat unusual flavoring gets rave reviews. Seriously, people think you’re going all fancy whenever wine and a little cream or half and half are in the picture.

Old Time Corn Pudding

I was introduced to Corn Pudding late in life, I’m afraid, which is a bit of a shame because this down-home side is scrumptious, easy and a really nice side for anything barbecued or grilled.

Dried Cranberry & Tea Infused Scones

Are you a scone lover? Or have you only had overly dry, crumbly scones, perhaps redeemed only by the amount of icing on top? Not that I have anything against icing…but it should go on a really GOOD scone, right? This scone has no icing, but a sprinkle of sugar over the top gives it a nice sheen and a bit of sweetness.

Oven Baked “Hotel” Eggs . $2.07

These eggs are so fluffy and perfect - they feed a crowd and free up your stovetop for other breakfasty things.

Oven baked eggs turn out so light, fluffy and gorgeous they’re my go to method when ever I have a crowd. Super easy to make, they’re far easier than standing at the stove and, frankly, turn out better. Every time. If you’re serving a big breakfast or brunch, baking your eggs also frees up your stove-top for other sides, hash browns, sausages, sauces, etc, maybe pancakes? 🙂

Quiche Lorraine

Quiche is one of those dishes that has you covered anytime…it goes from breakfast to brunch, to lunch and even to dinner. There’s nothing like it when you’re snowed in and want a casual meal in front of the fire, but it’s just as good on a balmy afternoon on the deck.
