A favorite summer tradition of mine is the clam bake—which doesn’t involve baking, but a labor-intensive process where you dig a hole in the sand, get a fire roaring, then douse it with salt water to steam seafood and seaweed on the piping-hot rocks. Since most of us can’t just light up anywhere we darn well please, this recipe captures that breezy, briny spirit from the convenience of the stove. The directions look complicated, but they’re really meant to be more of a loose guide than a must-do—the most important thing is to throw in the things that need to cook longest first.
You know what's awesome? When you're super-excited to meet someone and she turns out to be just as smart and sweet and chic as you hoped she'd be. That's Danai Gurira, whom you might know as Michonne on The Walking Dead! Tune into @abcthechew tomorrow to see us have some fun in the kitchen! #twd #thechew #fanboy
