Butternut Pound Cake

Rating: Unrated
I love this cake. Makes your whole house smell wonderful. If you can't find butternut flavoring, you can also use vanilla-butternut or a combination of vanilla, butter and any nut flavoring of your choice. It is important that you bake this cake in a cold oven - do not preheat!

For thousands of years man has been enjoying bread. This rye bread recipe will add to this ancient enjoyment.

New England Clam Chowder II

Rating: Unrated
Minced clams with potatoes and onion simmered in a broth of clam juice and half-and-half. A great, hearty soup to start a meal off with, or can even be a meal in itself.

Instant Pot® Yankee Pot Roast

Rating: Unrated
This kind of pressure cooking turns complex weekend-only dishes into everyday fare. For this Instant Pot® recipe, I adapted our recipe for classic Yankee pot roast, using baby carrots and frozen pearl onions to cut down on prep time. Coating the roast with seasoned flour before browning adds flavor and helps thicken the sauce--an important step in a sealed system where water can't evaporate. Spoon the sauce over the beef and vegetables alongside mashed potatoes, buttered egg noodles, or rice.

New England Crab Cakes

Rating: Unrated
This recipe comes from Maine and is EXCELLENT! These cakes are so yummy they almost melt in your mouth! They're great served with a seafood pasta salad, boiled potatoes, or fresh steamed veggies.

Slow Cooker New England Boiled Dinner

Rating: Unrated
An easy, budget-friendly slow cooker, all in one pot, meal.

Rhode Island Red Clam Chowder

Rating: Unrated
How can a New Englander love Manhattan over New England clam chowder? Because I like to taste the clams, not just heavy cream with lumps. I came up with this recipe today using what I had on hand, but feel free to improvise. This tastes just like the chowder you get at the beach with clam cakes! When reheating, do not boil or it will 'rubberize' the clams.

Old Fashion Molasses Bread

Rating: Unrated

Old fashioned New England flavor using a bread machine! You can mix the bread in the machine then bake it in the regular oven using your favorite pans, I do.
