Reviewed Fish and Corn Chowder

Jan 4, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

This
Chowder was amazing! I did heed other's advice with adding some flour to the veggies for a bit of thickening, added a can, with juice, of clams and used salmon instead of haddock. Definitely a keeper.

I thought this was a fabulous recipe that I will be saving to make again! Whoever said this had no flavor did something wrong. I did double the sauce and sprinkled tapioca flour over the top to thicken slightly. Served with sticky rice, YUMMY!"

These scones were perfect as is! I did add a bit more orange zest than recommended. This recipe is my new favorite, sorry Tyler ;-)

Instead of cutting into rounds I formed into a rectangle and cut into triangles. The advice to add sugar is silly, in my opinion, scones aren't meant to be sweet, the fruit and glaze is more than enough....

Loved this recipe and so did everyone else! I did overcook the eggs a bit, next time I'll take them out when they're a bit runny because they keep cooking when you broil the cheese. I also put aluminum over mine for a while after taking out of the oven before serving and the yolks were cooked. Leftovers are awesome!""
