Creole Seasoning Blend
Yoewzer! Made this tonight - put just 2 table spoons paprika and only 1 of salt (I don't use very much salt in anything) and it smells soooo good. Can't wait to use this - will have to find some suitable recipes !

Manhattan Clam Chowder II
This was excellent. I made it with 3 cans of clams and it was really too many - 2 cans probably would have been fine. I also added 2 stalks celery chopped up, and 3 cloves crushed garlic. Next time I will probably also add a bay leaf or two, and possibly fill the clam stock to 3 cups with white wine instead of regular water. I simmerred with the lid off - this lead to thicker consitency than I think I would have gotten with the lid on. I think this would make an excellent base recipe for any chowder. Next time, I will try it with fresh calamari and large shrimp.

Wendy's Indian Butter Chicken
This was easy, and a one pot meal if you ignore the food processor. Great for an introduction to Indian food if you want to expose your family to new culture.
