Seafood Cioppino
I've made this recipe twice for my husband and myself and I always scale it back for two people. The last time I doubled it for a family gathering/dinner and their, still, was not enough. This dish was the star of the dinner table and almost everyone went back for seconds. For my family dinner I made a couple of changes, to suite every palate, though the recipe is perfect as written. I used both red and green peppers, added fresh squeezed lemon juice and extra garlic, substituted about 2 Tbl tomato paste for the sauce, halibut for the cod, fresh clams for the minced, clam juice for the water plus extra and red wine for the white. I also tossed in some calamari. Everyone kept commenting how good the cioppino was. My elderly uncle, who usually eats without comment, asked for bread to sop the bottom of the bowl. Now that was the ultimate compliment.

Lobster Salad
I subed scallion for the onion and added both red and yellow bell peppers. This made a delicious salad. That said, about half way through making the salad I decided to serve it on rolls. So I added fresh basil and parsley, a little lemon juice and a (big) splash of hot sauce. Not a true lobster roll but still good. I rated the salad 5 stars as it was delicious before my additions.

Hopi Corn Stew
This is my second time to make this stew and the original recipe is tasty. When I made it for dinner tonight I took the liberty of making changes specific to hubby and my taste. I increased the green chiles, onion and hominy, decreased the potato and carrot, added fresh garlic and oregano as well as new mexico chile paste for the chili powder. It was served it with a simple avacado salad and corn tortillas. This made for a very satisfying dinner which I will make again. Oh, do not mistake this stew for posole. Authentic posole does not include potatoes, carrots, tomatoes....etc. Traditionally it is a simple pork and corn stew to which various chile's are added. For todays convenience hominy usually substitutes for the corn (posole).
