Maine Lobster Lasagna

Rating: 4.5 stars 108
I made up this recipe because my hubby wanted to try a lasagna made with lobster meat. I combine tender steamed Maine lobster chunks in between pasta, jarred or homemade Alfredo Sauce and fresh spinach and ricotta, Cheddar and Parmesan cheeses. Serve with a tossed garden salad and oven toasted garlic bread.

Cathy's Amazing Fish Chowder

Rating: 4.5 stars 38
Restaurant style comfort food directly from Maine that is easy to make and wonderful to eat!! Any white fish such as haddock may be used in place of the cod. Serve with crackers and corn bread if desired!! The real person that deserves full credit for this recipe is a wonderful mother named Cathy that lives in Chicago and loves her son in Kansas!!

Pork Pie

Rating: 4 stars 30
Pork Pie is a standard Christmas Eve or New Year's Eve treat in my predominantly French-Canadian hometown in Maine. It's served with catsup or mustard, tossed salad, and pickles. Simple but wonderful. Top individual servings with catsup or mustard before serving.

New England Clam Chowder II

Rating: 4.5 stars 215
Bottled clam juice is the secret ingredient for this extra-flavorful chowder. Otherwise, this is a fairly standard chowder recipe with lots of potatoes, bacon, and onions.

Yankee Beans
Rating: 4 stars 24

This is almost like putting an old Baked Bean recipe on hyperdrive! Superb doesn't even come close to describing the taste. The beans will be good, if you keep them covered and refrigerated, for about 3 days.
