Linguine with Clam Sauce and Baby Portobello Mushrooms
Thank you, Mountainrider! I am not a pasta fan, nor do I know much about clams, but your recipe is such a fantastic balance that I couldn't stop eating. It is inexpensive and easy and will definitely go to the top of my "company dinners" list. I did cut the butter in half after reading other reviews, and needed to cut some of the bouillon because of the sodium. Still, the flavor was fantastic!!! I've been cooking for over 50 years, and it's nice to know that there are still some surprises out there.

Cream of Celery Soup
Just left the dinner table - yum, yum, yum!I followed recipe pretty much, but took advice from other reviewers and made these changes: added garlic and a pinch of nutmeg, did not strain the veggies, just pureed them in my Cuisinart (the immersion blender others suggested just did not make it smooth enough for my taste). Also, because there are only two of us here, I took the advice of others and omitted the roux so I can freeze 2 cup portions and add the roux (2 T. butter. 2 T. flour and 2 cups milk) when I thaw and heat it. Thanks for the very tasty soup, and because my husband is on a sodium restricted diet, I can make it and use it in all those wonderful, easy casseroles that I used to make with Campbells Cream of Celery Soup, but without the high sodium count.
