On the dinner table, you'll find traditional American recipes, such as the classic New England Clam Chowder (pg. 9).  Rich and creamy, this classic soup recipe is a staple of American cuisine.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

The Ohio State Buckeye confections are spot on! They are chocolate and peanut balls. When you're making them, I suggest using a parchment paper instead of waxed paper on the baking sheet to help keep them from sticking on the bottom. They'll come off the paper much easier.

Thank you for the eBook of 50 Favorite American Recipes by States. I am anxious to try some of them as soon as possible.

After reading the "Connecticut-style best apple pie" recipe, I have to ask, did they mean Napoleon brandy instead of Neapolitan? Really makes me wonder how many typos and/or omissions are in this book. Can someone PLEASE post an explanation?

I agree with caspear 0432098 also being from the New England area most of my life, I have never heard of New England Clam Chowder without some form of actual clams. Whole, Baby or even Minced.

I'm not going to rate it, because I haven't tried any of the recipes (yet). I am concerned how well states are actually represented. The New England clam chowder gives me pause, and reason to wonder. Clam chowder without clams? Lived in New England my entire life, don't think I've ever had it that way. Is there something missing, or does the clam juice do it? Carole
