So I was going to give this 4 stars when I first came on to rate it, but decided to go put the leftovers in the fridge while my computer started up. I took one last spoon full before I packaged it up and WOW! The only flaw I'd felt before was that I wished the broth had a bit more flavor to it. Apparently letting it sit for a bit, though, is all it needed! The flavor was SO much better after it rested. My only suggestion to others is to add a jar of clam juice to the broth and be sure to wash the clams and mussles well. I only washed them twice and still had grit.

Firehouse Clam Bake New England Style
I grew up in Maine, but now live in the Midwest. On a trip back to my home state I loaded up a cooler full of the seafood straight out of the fish markets and drove straight back only stopping to refill the ice. The next day I invited a big group of friends out to a lake ( close enough!) and followed these directions. Fantastic! The seaweed I dragged all the way from Maine was novel enough to make the whole excursion!

BLT Pasta Salad
Not great, but certainly not bad. I thought it was a bit bland, but was helped out by some black pepper. I don't agree it gets better after 3 hours, I thought it tasted better fresh than the day after. The biggest issue I had with it was that it just LOOKED unappealing. It definitely needed something green, peas or broccoli perhaps. The boyfriend liked it, so I'll probably make it again but with a few alterations.
