      (The Rudderpost Recipes)

      Download a printable recipe card.I’ll be the first to admit that this recipe is the result of a failed trip to Dunkin Donuts. They used to sell a smoked salmon cream cheese that was the only reason I would drive by for breakfast – smoked salmon on a sesame bagel. I can still taste it....

    • Linguine with Clams >

      (The Rudderpost Recipes)

      I’ve tried and read many versions of this recipe, some with whole clams in the shell and some with canned clams. For presentation, you can’t beat clams on the halfshell.

      A lot of people are afraid to eat cod these days because they have heard about the loss of historic cod stocks in New England and Newfoundland.
