Homemade Clam Chowder

Homemade Clam Chowder

Today is Clam Chowder Day, and I’m putting together a pot full of homemade clam chowder for my family.  I have another recipe for clam chowder made from food storage items here on the Patty Cake’s Pantry website, but this time, I’m making it entirely from scratch.  Homemade Clam Chowder is delicious, and it’s surprisingly simple to prepare.  There’s really only minimal prep work necessary, and almost all of the ingredients are things that I keep on hand in my pantry and fridge.

Man Pleasing Soups

Five Man Pleasing Soups

One of the points of conflict in my relationship with Baker’s Man is soup.  I love soup, and he doesn’t.  The one exception to this is chili, so he likes the chili that I have been making for years, and he likes the chili con carne with beans that I made during my 30 days of cans, but those are almost the only soup-like foods that he will eat.  In fact, if I suggest soup for dinner, he rolls his eyes or makes a comment that ensures I remember that he isn’t a fan of soup.  These five recipes; however, […]

Potato Bacon Soup

Potato Bacon Soup

I love to make potato soup.  It’s actually one of the few soups that Baker’s Man enjoys.  For this version, I used both canned milk and canned potatoes.   In this case, using canned milk serves a purpose beyond fulfilling requirements for  my 30 days of cans challenge.  Evaporated milk is concentrated milk that has had part of the water removed through evaporation.  It adds a creaminess to recipes without adding extra fat that would be added if cream, or half and half, were used.     This version of potato bacon soup is unique because the entire recipe is […]

Chicken Chile Verde

Chicken Chile Verde

When I hear someone mention Chile Verde, I  usually think of pork, but this version, which uses canned chicken, is a simple and delicious alternative.  It’s a quick and delicious meal for a busy week night.  I like to make this using great northern beans, so that the entire dish is mostly white, but it’s equally delicious when made with pinto beans.  The Chicken Chile Verde is delicious on its own, but it can also be served with warm tortillas, or fresh tortilla chips, and topped with shredded Monterey Jack cheese, fresh cilantro,  green onions and accompanied by your favorite […]
