Sure, the clam dip is easy, and like most of my stuff - it's "some of this and some of that" to taste!

Start with 8 oz. cream cheese, softened. Stir to smooth it out. Add a couple good dashes of Worcestershire sauce, a little onion and garlic powders, some dried minced onion, mix well. Add the juice of half a lemon. Drain a can of minced or chopped clams into a glass; use about 1/3 to 1/2 the juice in the cream cheese. Mix all til smooth. Add the drained clams and a couple drops of Worcestershire sauce, stir to blend, taste and adjust seasonings as you like (I usually end up adding more lemon juice and a couple more drops Worcestershire and Tabasco after the initial bits) and refrigerate. Keep the leftover clam juice; pull the dip out about 1/2 hour before serving, let soften a bit, add more of the reserved clam juice if needed to bring it back to a dip consistency.
