Lobster Tailsá
Fill a pot with just enough water to cover your lobsters, place lobster tails aside for the moment.áAdd other seasonings to the water if you like, these are not necessary for cooking, though.áBring the water to a boil and carefully drop in your tails.áOnce the water returns to a soft boil, reduce the heat.áSet your cooking timer to the appropriate time (see below), and simmer uncovered for the specified time.áRemove all tails from the water. Pick a tail to test for doneness. Using a knife, cut through the shell into the thickest part of the tail meat. The meat of a fully-cooked lobster tail is white with no sign of a translucent, grayish color. If you detect any translucency, or the roe (eggs) still appears black and shiny, put the tails back in the water for one-minute intervals until done. Err on the side of undercooking, you can always cook a bit longer to ensure perfect results.áCOOKING TIME:áBoil tails for 3-4 minutes.

Filet Mignon
Rub the uncooked steaks with olive oil, a fresh-cut garlic clove, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.áGet the fire of your choice started, letting it burn until it reaches high heat.áPlace your steaks on the grill. If one is being cooked well done, wait a minute or two before placing the others on the grill so that they will all be ready to serve at the same time.áLet the steaks cook on one side for about 2 minutes. Then use your tongs to turn them over. This helps sear in the juices of the meat to make them juicier and more flavorful.áCook steaks according to the chart below.áUsing a meat thermometer, remove your steaks when they reach 5-10 degrees below the recommended temperature in the chart. Place them on a serving dish and cover loosely with foil for 5-10 minutes. Their temperature will actually continue to rise while resting, and their flavorful juices will lock themselves inside, right where you want them.

New England Clam Chowder
On your stovetop, place the unopened soup pouch in boiling water. Heat for up to 10 minutes, until soup is hot and bubbling inside. Remove the pouch, but be careful, the content will be very hot. Secure the pouch in a bowl, holding it by its corners or seams, and then snip the corner off to pour soup into the serving dish.

Lava Cakes
If frozen, thaw overnight or for 2-3 hours in the refrigerator, being sure to bring to room temperature before heating. Remove outer wrapper and place on serving plate (make sure the plate is microwave-safe).áMicrowave on high for approximately 30 seconds, or place in a 400░F preheated oven for 4 minutes.áThe center of the cake will be melted and quite hot when ready. We recommend serving with fresh whipped cream and raspberry sauce, or fresh berries!
