Linguine with Clam Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2009
Real easy and tasty. When I want to be ''fancy" I use real little necks and a ''fancier'' recipe (more herbs, wine, etc). But for quick and simple to the table in 15 minutes this is a WINNER of a basic and easy recipe. I only did things a little differently - used olive oil instead of veg. oil and used garlic puree instead of minced garlic - I was out of fresh. And last five minutes added 1/3 cup grated parma cheese to make sauce a little thicker along with a 1/4 pasta water (starchy water helps thicken instead of corn starch). Then I only added the clams the last two minutes or so of cooking so they would not get too chewy. In the time it took to cook the pasta the sauce was ready! Recipe ''adaptions'' aside, this is a great recipe and I already printed a copy to keep it handy for next time. Clams are already on my grocery list again for when I make this again! Thanks Miss Dorothy for helping me find a new twist on one of my old favorites.

Mediterranean Garlic Herb Beef Skewers

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2008
This recipe gave me good foundation for a tasty and easy dinner. I didn't find the 'seasoned' skewers but I had regular wooden skewers that I used and I did soak them in white wine for 30 minutes. Also I did still use the red onion and white button mushrooms and beef tips. I marinated the bef tips in olive oil a little more white wine and some greek seasoning blend. Skewers were beef tip-mushroom-onion tip - mushroom - onion - tip this gave everyone at dinner three skewers each and three bites of steak on each skewer. 1LB of beef tips, one onion, and one container of mushrooms nicely feed three hungry people! This would be good with about any combination of meast and veggies and I loved the tip to soak the skewers in the wine. Thanks for good inspiration! By the way, I was out of charcoal so I used my grill pan on the stove. And dinner was on the table in minutes.
