Anchovy Linguine
Very good recipe! If you enjoy traditional, authentic Italian cuisine, you will enjoy this recipe. The only modification I made to the recipe is as follows: - I substituted 3 (2.0 oz.) cans of Anchovy Filets for 1 (2.0 oz.) can Anchovy Filets, chopped. The reason for the substitution: My husband is Italian and the recipe matches the same method utilized by his Mother (from Italy), with the exception of the quantity of anchovies. In her preperation, she uses one can of anchovy filets in olive oil and it has always produced a mild fish flavor as opposed to the overpowering anchovy flavor, by using three. Top with freshly grated Italian cheese (of your choice) and enjoy! =)

Authentic Lebanese Fattoush
This recipe, while good, fell short of my expectations based on the description and review(s). The dressing did not have the 'zip' found in restaurant salads. It is a nice recipe; but if you're looking for the "greatest fattoush salad in the world", you may wish to try a different version.
