Clam Sauce Is Waaaay More Delicious Than You Think!

There is something so decadent about white, rich and creamy sauces over pasta! I recently asked Facebook fans to submit a favorite dish they would like to see as a 4 ingredient recipe, and someone requested Clam Sauce. Here is a recipe that has full flavor without the heavy cream, and taste great over your favorite noodles (some like using roasted "spaghetti" squash instead of pasta, or those 0 calorie/fat/carb Kelp noodles (available at most asian grocery stores). Give it a try and let us know what you think!

4 shallots, chopped
4 (6.5 ounce) cans clams, minced
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
2 tablespoons white wine

In large pan over medium heat, add 2 tablespoons butter and shallots, then sauté for 3-5 minutes or until translucent. Drain the clams, reserving half of the juice. Add clams, reserved juice, wine and butter to pan and cook for 20 minutes or until the sauce has reduced by 1/3. Serve over your favorite cooked pasta (I like a gluten-free linguine) garnish with grated parmesan and chopped parsley, and enjoy!

You're A Dip, We're A Dip, Let's All Eat Some Warm Crab Dip!

Filed under: FoodRecipesMariko Amekodommo

There is something about a hot and bubbly crab dip that makes people go crazy every time! I recently asked Facebook fans to submit a favorite dish they would like to see as a 4 ingredient recipe! Bruce from West Hollywood, California suggested a Hot Crab dip, and I was excited for the challenge. I love purchasing fresh canned crab at the seafood counter; you get all the taste without the hassle. If you can't find crab, substitute raw chopped shrimp or canned albacore tuna. Thanks Bruce for the idea … give it a try and let us know what you think!

8 ounces (1 package) cream cheese, softened to room temperature
8 ounces crab meat
1/2 teaspoon seasoning (like horseradish, old bay, chili or paprika)
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Combine all ingredients together. Put in oven safe dish and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes, or until golden and bubbly. Serve with your favorite crackers, bread or vegetables for dipping, and enjoy!

St. Patrick's Day Recipes: Whiskey Glazed Steak In Just FOUR Ingredients!

Mariko Laugh

This year, try something different that your traditional Corned Beef. Choose organic or grass fed cuts; natural beef is lower in fat, high in Omega 3s and a great source of iron. If you want a non-dairy variation, substitute the cream for a Stout beer.

· 4 fillet steaks, 5-6 ounces each. Seasoned with salt & pepper (experiment with different meats like buffalo or chicken)
· ¼ cup Irish whiskey
· ¼ cup beef stock
· ¼ cup cream

Heat a large, heavy pan over high heat, and cook steaks until desired doneness. Move steaks to plate, and reduce heat to simmer. Add whiskey, and deglaze the pan (combining all the steak bits and juices) then add cream and broth. Bring sauce to boil until thick (about a minute), pour over steaks, garnish with fresh ground pepper and enjoy!

St. Patrick's Day Recipes: Irish Shortbread With Chocolate Ganache Made With Only FOUR Ingredients!

Filed under: RecipesMariko Amekodommo

Markio Knives

This light and crispy cookie is the perfect end to your St. Patrick's Day feast, and is delicious with Irish coffee! Feeling fancy? Create your own unique combinations by adding 1/2 cup dried fruit or nuts. This recipe calls for Irish Butter; made from the milk of grass-fed cows, it has a richer flavor and higher Omega / vitamin / mineral content. If you can't find Irish butter, substitute regular!

1 cup (2 sticks) Irish better, at room temperature
1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon sugar
2 1/2 cups flour (plus extra for rolling out)
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. In a mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar with electric mixer until well combined. Gradually add flour and mix until a ball is formed. Transfer dough to floured cutting board, and use a rolling pin to roll dough about 1/4 inch thick. Make into shapes using your favorite cookie cutter (I like a classic round for my shortbread) and bake on parchment lined baking sheet for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks. In small bowl, add chocolate chips and microwave 45 seconds, stirring every 10 seconds until melted. Dip half of shortbread in chocolate, and place on parchment until hardened. Enjoy!
