This is one of the most filling and hearty chili recipes you could ever make.

Clam Chowder III

Rating: 4.56 stars
Very basic and easy, and by no means low in fat, but very well worth it.

Boston Baked Beans

Rating: 4.58 stars
A wonderful old-fashioned baked bean flavor. This recipe has served by family for 29 years and originally came from my mother-in-law. It tastes great served with fresh cornbread or biscuits and honey. Although you need to allow time for soaking and simmering the beans, this recipe is still quite easy.

Cranberry Muffins

Rating: 3.95 stars
Use this scratch recipe to make zesty cranberry muffins with a slight citrus accent via orange zest and orange juice.

My Best Clam Chowder

A delicious, traditional, cream based chowder, this recipe calls for the standard chowder ingredients: onion, celery, potatoes, diced carrots, clams, and cream. A little red wine vinegar is added before serving for extra flavor.

Lobster Thermidor

Rating: 4.58 stars
This stunning lobster dish is surprisingly simple to make. Lobster shells are stuffed with cooked lobster in a creamy white wine sauce, then topped with Parmesan cheese and broiled until golden.

Simple Baked Beans

Easy Steak Sandwich

Rating: 4.6 stars
I tried for years to make a cheese steak as good as the takeout sub shops of southeastern Massachusetts. I think this is about as close as you can come at home. Freezing the steak the day before makes it easy to cut into very thin slices.

This is a quick and tasty way to make DELICIOUS broiled lobster tails...YUM! Keep an eye on them while they're in the oven so they don't burn.

Grilled Rock Lobster Tails

Perfect Lobster Bisque

This is a decadent lobster bisque that is surprisingly easy to prepare. Your guests will be impressed and feel pampered. I serve this with salad and hot, buttered French bread.

My step mom gave me this tasty recipe when I was lamenting over what to bring to a barbecue. I've taken this dish to several parties and there's NEVER been any left over!

This is actually one of my daddy's recipes. He's a commercial fisherman, but he finds time to make this whenever the family is together. But don't be fooled this simple recipe is one of the best out there.
