Manhattan Clam Chowder

Manhattan Clam Chowder

This is an easy chowder soup recipe you can even throw together on a weeknight. 

It’s a tomato-based clam chowder, often referred to as a Manhattan clam chowder. 

I’ve used canned clams because they are easy to find, but by all means, you can you fresh or frozen clams instead.

Tasty Pumpkin Loaf

Tasty pumpkin loaf

This pumpkin loaf is unassuming, not too sweet, and subtly delicious. The recipe calls for butter, which makes it luscious. However, if you wish a lower fat version, I’ve substituted oil for butter, and been happy with the results.  

It is great for breakfast or with your afternoon tea.

Pumpkin Cake Freshly Out Of the Oven

This is a delightful cake, which can be served with or without cream cheese icing. 

It's moist and flavoured with cinnamon, all-spice and nutmeg. 

I used pumpkin puree, but if you wish, you could buy a sugar pumpkin, remove the seeds, roast it and use the cooked pumpkin inside instead. Sugar pumpkins are usually sold at Farmer’s Markets.
