"I'm not a big fan of this soup to begin with but my boyfriend is and when he smelled the soup I was a hard time to keep him away from the slow cooker before the soup was even done!"

"This was very good clam chowder. I add the clams at the very end, though, so that they stay plump. I always add an extra can of clams. Never enough clams, as far as I'm concerned. Yum!"
