Salsa Chicken Rice Casserole
This was a pretty easy recipe to make, but I made it as-written and agree with those who said that it was kind of bland. The boiled chicken and white rice fill out the baking dish but don't do much to enhance the final flavor. I think the concept is fine and I might try making the dish again with some modifications. Instead of boiling the chicken, I would suggest brushing it with oil and southwestern spices and roasting it in the oven. It's nearly as fast and easy as boiling and will yield a much nicer flavor and texture. I would also do what some others have suggested and use a Spanish or Mexican rice instead of plain white rice. (I also found that I had more rice than I needed with this recipe and had to leave some out so that I didn't overfill my baking dish.) I would also sauté the chopped onion, along with a clove of minced garlic. And while I'm a big fan of cheese, I'd probably cut that back a bit too, maybe 3 cups total instead of 4, because it just seemed like a bit too much at the end.

Italian Bread Bowls
It's a reasonably simple recipe for very basic bread bowls, but this doesn't even come close to making 8 reasonable bowls. I cut it down to 6, as other reviewers suggested, but even then they felt too small to be useful for a dish like soup. If I try the recipe again I wouldn't make more than 4 bowls out of it.

Tasty BBQ Corn on the Cob
This recipe has potential, but when cooked as directed the finished product was a little disappointing. The butter of course melts as the corn cooks, and as it drips off the corn onto the foil it seems to take most of the seasoning with it. So while the corn was moist and cooked-through, it lacked the flavor punch I was expecting when I mixed up so much seasoning. I may try this again but applying the butter spread after I cook the corn.
