Monterey Chicken Tortilla Casserole
This recipe looked like the sort of dish my family loves so I doubled it in order to have leftovers for lunches. In my opinion the corn added an overpowering sweetness to a dish I would have expected to be spicy/savory. I don't use cream-style corn often and had forgotten how sweet it is. I followed the recipe exactly as written, so I'm not downgrading this recipe because of any changes I made (I hate it when reviewers do that!). Possibly substituting with regular corn, or using less of the canned corn, would allow the other flavors to be experienced. For those who like sweeter main dishes, this would probably be a fine recipe, but it didn't work for my family.

Grain and Nut Whole Wheat Pancakes
These are like Harvest Grain 'n Nut pancakes, but much better! Since our arid climate keeps the moisture content of flour very low, I was concerned about some comments saying the pancakes were dry or heavy. I added 1/2 cup additional buttermilk (reducing the plain milk to 1/2 cup) and added another egg. The pancakes were delicious, moist, and light but substantial enough to accommodate the heartiness of the whole grains and nuts. Great reviews from all the family members, even those not fond of nuts in baked goods.

Seafood Chowder
I usually avoid recipes that involve condensed cream soups, but I made this tonight and I'm glad I did. My family loved it. My only changes were in substituting seafood that was available today in the fish market rather than using specifically what the recipe called for, and leaving out the clams. This chowder served with some sourdough bread and a salad was a tasty and filling meal. The cayenne gives the soup a little bit of a kick, so anyone sensitive to spicy dishes might want to back off on that quantity.
