Seafood - Marilyns Cheesy Clam Chowder

A little different twist on an old favorite...cheese makes the difference! Substitute half and half cream for a richer chowder.

Bread - Grandma Vandorens White Bread

What Grandma used to make! Our family's favorite. The recipe was never written down (that I know of) until she shared it with me when she was in her 90's.

Soups Stews And Chili - Quick Classic Gazpacho

For the ultimate gazpacho, you must peel, seed, dice, salt and drain really good, vine-ripened tomatoes. So what if you don't have time to fuss with fresh tomatoes? I've found the canned variety makes a fine substitute. Another advantage: Fresh tomatoes start to deteriorate as soon as the soup is refrigerated, but canned tomatoes are unaffected by the chill.

Sour cream makes this bread especially moist and a bit tangy, a fine counterpoint to the intense sweetness of banana.
