Autumn is a wonderful time to cook chili, savory stews, soups and creamy chowders. There’s nothing like the aroma of homemade chowder simmering on the stove. Cook books are filled with many delicious options, as well as online, which is where I found this simple recipe.
My Recipes – http://www.myrecipes.com – is one of my favoirte sites to discover new recipes. I found this Simple Clam Chowder recipe there. This particular dish features crispy bacon! YUM!
In my first novel, Keeper of My Heart, Bessie, a secondary character in the book, loves to cook this savory dish for the herione – the fiesty and adorable, Katie McCullough.
Here’s a bit about the story…
Katie McCullough doesn’t know it, but Max Sawyer, the over confident, insufferable thief who outbid her for the lighthouse property, is none other, than her mystery lighthouse sailor. The one man who captured her heart five years earlier, the one man who has since been the plumb line for every other unsuspecting male who has crossed her path. Unfortunately for Max, he doesn’t measure up either.
Still reeling from losing the property she’d planned to call home, sparks fly when Katie assumes Max is turning her beloved lighthouse compound into one of his ‘Serenity Spa Resorts.” Outraged, Katie sets out on a mission to dismantle the property…and his plans.
Except Max’s plans have absolutely nothing to do with hotels and everything to do with winning Katie’s heart.
