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. 

Slow Cooker Red Cabbage and Apples

Slow Cooker Red Cabbage and Apples

Slow Cooker Red Cabbage and Apples is a twist on a traditional German side dish.   At least, hat’s what a German octogenarian told me.  This recipe is our attempt to recreate the dish for her.   We modified the recipe for Red Cabbage and Apples that she described by preparing it in a slow cooker to make it a bit less labor intensive.
