New England Clam Chowder
Chopped clams, aromatic vegetables and creamy potatoes blended with low-fat milk and just a half cup of cream gives this chunky New England-style clam chowder plenty of rich body. Serve with oyster crackers and a tossed salad to make it a meal………….

Spaghetti with Garlic and Clam Sauce
This healthy spaghetti with clam sauce recipe incorporates a few twists that make it extra-delicious. The clams are steamed ahead of time to release their natural juices and create a flavorful clam broth for the base of the garlicky clam sauce. Plus, we use tarragon to add a fabulous hint of anise……………..

Seafood Linguine
This restaurant-worthy seafood pasta dish is a snap to make and an easy way to impress guests. We like the sweet taste and extra-saucy consistency of canned diced San Marzano tomatoes in sauces like this one. Marjoram pairs well with the seafood, but basil or even parsley works too. Serve with a Caesar salad…………

Kitchen Hint of the Day!

Buying fresh Clams…………

All clams should have an ocean-fresh aroma, and closed shells. Give any open-shelled clams a tap, and if they don’t shut, discard the clam (soft-shelled clams will stay slightly open; thanks to their long neck, they can’t close completely).

Properly-handled fresh live clams will last 2 days in the refrigerator under optimum conditions. Whole clams still in the shell must be sold live. Fresh, unshucked clams should be stored in a porous bag made of burlap or other natural material in the refrigerator.

Today’s Menu: Baked Breaded Clams w/ Cheddar Potato Bake

 

For Breakfast on this sunny morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 54 degrees and sunny out, another beautiful day! Got the 4 wheel cart out of the shed along with the leaf blower and rake. Cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. Then cleaned out the flower bed in the back of the house. Good to be out and active! For Dinner tonight it was Baked Breaded Clams w/ Cheddar Potato Bake.

 

To make tonight’s Dinner I’ll need the Microwave, the oven, and 1 small baking sheet. It doesn’t get much easier than that! So for the Clams I used a box of SeaPak Clam Strips. Preheat the oven on 425 degrees. I then lined a baking sheet with foil and sprayed it with a shot of Pam Cooking Spray. Placed the Clam Strips in a single layer on the sheet and baked them for 12 minutes, flipping them over after 7 minutes. These come out so delicious. Love these, very meaty strips, well seasoned, and easy to prepare. Had a side of McCormick’s Tarter Sauce, for dipping. Great product to have in the freezer for those days where you want something easy to prepare. Wow, such an easy Dinner to prepare, just bake and serve. Easy to prepare Dinners can also be a Delicious Dinner.

 

Then for a side I prepared a Stouffer’s Cheddar Potato Bake. Another easy to prepare and delicious dish. To prepare this one I’m using the microwave. It comes in a microwavable tray. I just slit the film cover on the tray and microwaved it for 6 minutes, Done! I love this side by Stouffer’s! Delicious Potato Dish, really like the bread crumb topping. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

One of America’s Favorites – Cioppino

Cioppino

Cioppino, Italian: from Ligurian: cioppin is a fish stew originating in San Francisco, California. It is an Italian-American dish and is related to various regional fish soups and stews of Italian cuisine.

Cioppino is traditionally made from the catch of the day, which in San Francisco is typically a combination of Dungeness crab, clams, shrimp, scallops, squid, mussels and fish, all sourced from salt-water ocean, in this case the Pacific. The seafood is then combined with fresh tomatoes in a wine sauce.

The dish can be served with toasted bread, either local sourdough or French bread. The bread acts as a starch, similar to a pasta, and is dipped into the sauce.

Cioppino was developed in the late 1800s by Italian immigrants who fished off Meiggs Wharf and lived in the North Beach neighborhood of San Francisco, many from the port city of Genoa. When a fisherman came back empty handed, they would walk around with a pot to the other fishermen asking them to chip in whatever they could. What ever ended up in the pot became their Cioppino. The fishermen that chipped in expected the same treatment if they came back empty handed in the future. It later became a staple as Italian restaurants proliferated in San Francisco.

The name comes from cioppin (also spelled ciopin) which is the name of a classic soup from the Italian region Liguria, similar in flavor to cioppino but with less tomato and using Mediterranean seafood cooked to the point that it falls apart.

The dish also shares its origin with other regional Italian variations of seafood stew similar to cioppin, including cacciucco from Tuscany, brodetto di pesce from Abruzzo and others. Similar dishes can be found in coastal regions throughout the Mediterranean, from Portugal to Greece. Examples of these include suquet de peix from Catalan-speaking regions and bouillabaisse from Provence.

Cioppino with bread

The earliest printed description of cioppino is from a 1901 recipe in The San Francisco Call, though the stew is called “chespini”. “Cioppino” first appears in 1906 in The Refugee’s Cookbook, a fundraising effort to benefit San Franciscans displaced by the 1906 earthquake and fire.

Generally the seafood is cooked in broth and served in the shell, including the crab, which is often served halved or quartered. It therefore requires special utensils, typically a crab fork and cracker. Depending on the restaurant, it may be accompanied by a bib to prevent food stains on clothing, a damp napkin and a second bowl for the shells. A variation, commonly called “lazy man’s cioppino”, is served with shells pre-cracked or removed.

Making Clam Chowder………….

Always add clams to your chowder during the last 15-20 minutes of cooking. If added too early, clams can become either tough or too soft. Nothing better than hot bowl of Clam Chowder on a cold Winter’s Day!

Manhattan Crab Chowder
Manhattan chowder is the red kind, made with disease-fighting lycopene-rich tomatoes. This version substitutes crab for the clams. To make it cook faster, take your time to finely dice the vegetables. We call for convenient canned crushed tomatoes, but you only need 2 cups; store leftover tomatoes in an airtight container for 1 week in the refrigerator or months in the freezer. Then take them out to toss into other soups or sauces–you can’t go wrong with adding tomatoes, from a heart-health perspective! All you need is crusty bread or oyster crackers and a tossed salad and you’ve got dinner…………………………………….

Today’s Menu: Baked Clam Strips/Whole Grain Mac and Cheese and Baked Multi Grain Bread Loaf

 

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. 17 degrees this morning and 31 for a high and mostly cloudy out today. I struggled overnight with Phantom Pains. They were bad through out the night. They started about 10:00 last night and continued to almost 10:00 this morning! So little to no sleep or rest. I went back to bed about 11:00 this afternoon and rested and slept till almost 4:00 this afternoon. I needed it! I wanted a good hot meal that was easy to prepare. I went with Baked Clam Strips/Whole Grain Mac and Cheese and Baked Multi Grain Bread Loaf. Couldn’t get much easier!

 

 

For the Clam Strips; I had bought a box of Sea Best Oven Ready Breaded Clam Strips at Meijer last week and had it in the freezer. To prepare them; I first preheat the oven to 425°F. Remove breaded clams strips from package and arrange in single layer on a foil lined baking sheet. Placed the sheet on middle rack of oven and baked for 15 minutes until they were golden brown and internal temperature reached 145°F. These made one good Clam Strip Meal! They browned up perfect and they had just the right amount of Breading. I’ll be buying more of these for sure.

 

 

 

To go with these Delicious Clam Strips I prepared a cup of Kraft 50% Whole Grain Mac and Cheese. They come in a microwavable plastic container. To prepare it just remove the lid, add water and stir, microwave for 3 1/2 minutes, and stir in the packet of cheese sauce. And you have your Mac and Cheese! Another nice item to have in the pantry. Easy to prepare, nothing like good old-fashioned Kraft Mac and Cheese! Container makes 1 serving. Love these Kraft Mac and Cheese! For Dessert/Snack later tonight a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn along with a Coke Zero to drink.

Lobster Bisque
The secret to this richly flavored lobster bisque recipe lies in the shells from the lobster tail that get pureed into the soup itself. This is one appetizer soup that will really wow your guests!

Crab-Stuffed Mushrooms
This crab-stuffed mushroom recipe is perfect for Christmas, New Year’s Eve and other holiday parties or any other time you need a quick and easy appetizer. The filling is light and fresh thanks to hearts of palm, a tender vegetable with a mild flavor (similar to artichokes) that doesn’t mask the rich, sweet flavor of fresh crabmeat………………………………
