Cioppino
It's not a bad base. I used seafood stock and a 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes, as well as mussels instead of clams. Also, I used fresh crab that I had cracked, and put in the stew. I would HIGHLY suggest using red wine instead of white. We used white, and it made the sauce so sour, we had to simmer it for an extra two hours as well as add red wine.

Linguine with Clam Sauce
These are good ingredients, but I do have some additions. I use about a half of a small yellow onion, 1/4 cup white wine and olive oil instead of vegetable oil. I also use fresh parsley. Saute the onion, garlic, and 1/2 of the parsley in the olive oil and then add the wine. Simmer the sauce with the clams and juice while the pasta cooks. When the pasta is ready I make a roux with flour and butter, and add it to the sauce to thicken. Then I combine all the ingredients. It's amazing!

Catherine's Spicy Chicken Soup
Great base recipe. Serve with melted cheese and tortilla chips. I added fresh jalapeno to the garlic and onion mix, as well as lots of black pepper. While you simmer it towards the end keep adding what you want to make it taste good. I used Frank's Red hot as well to add flavor and thickness.
