Sheryl's Corn and Crab Chowder
This was excellent. I have several recipes for corn chowder but none with seafood. I changed the servings to 5. I did make my own roux and had no problem. I added more bacon and extra to garnish with extra crab when served. I doubled the brandy. Cut the potato amount in half, it was a large russet. Did not want the potato to be the dominant ingredient. I changed the heavy cream and used half/half. Then added coconut milk for the half/half amount. I made my own Creole seasoning. Cut up large shrimp as I think have more flavor. Also, I added at the end so would not get tough. Fresh crab claw which was not expensive. As I had more than enough chowder for two meals, I measured out the amount for our first dinner, added the seafood only to that portion. I will add the seafood later when we have leftovers.

Perfect Turkey
I have used many techniques over the last 30 years, but this was by far the best. My family agreed who have had bagged, cheese clothed, etc. Only addition I made was to add oil to the basting butter. I also basted with the wonderful broth in the bottom of the roasting pan. I did add more wine when I turned her over as veggies were exposed. This was a 13 lb Butterball which had been brimed (according to the wrapper). I cooked for 3 1/2 hours, then let rest tented lightly with foil for 30 minutes. Now going to make turkey soup with the vegetable broth. Have about 4 cups.

Chef John's Crab Cakes
We thought it was a good, basic crab cake recipe, especially if you want a pure crab taste. That being said, next time I will up the seasoning as was bland. I used pretzel crackers, 8, which were not too salty and I had on hand. I used panko for the coating. No salt. Next time I will use lemon infused oil and butter as they were a little too crisp, brown and lower the time to cook to 3 mins per side.
