Ingredient: Sea salt and black pepper, to taste


Manhattan Clam Chowder

Serve with garlic-lemon Swiss chard saute and artisan bread-

If you love tomato-based soups you’ll want to give this clam chowder a try; and it’s as authentic in taste as it comes. Nothing like the thick, creamy New England version but just as delicious in its own way. I’ve paired it with one of cool season’s hearty greens, Swiss chard. It’s bitter component is a nice complement to the sweet clams.


Edamame, Corn and Shrimp Salad

Serve with warmed whole grain dinner rolls-

An edamame and corn salad in the deli section of Whole Foods Market inspired me to create this easy, healthy, light summer salad. My husband ate two huge bowls of this salad declaring it one of his favorites. Try it scooped into a large lettuce leaf and you have an edible “bowl”.
