    This chowder turned out great!! I had leftover lobster meat from a feast we had a few nights earlier. Only thing I would change is to use half the pepper that the recipe calls for. We all enjoy food a little spicy, but found this spicier than it needed to be. Regardless, it was devoured and everyone, even the kids, liked it.

    I just made this chowder and it IS awesome. I'm not sure I'm a fan of the Italian Seasoning but it didn't take away from the yumminess of this chowder. Next time I might try something else. I followed the advice of Chef Wayne and drained the potato water and used 1% milk. All in all.... YUM! P.S. I'm far from a cook and didn't have a problem making this :)

    This is a lovely bisque soup/chowder. As I have never taken the plunge to try and make myself I thought this recipe looked fairly easy. BB you have opened some doors for me to try more. I liked the pleasant and light taste (for a chowder) of this and find this would be a great camping soup as canned milk is plentiful and shelf safe. Followed directions exactly, using the frozen lobster bits. After tasting some, I did think it needed a bit of a kick, maybe some garlic or red pepper to liven it up some. However, that is our tastes. The chowder stands on its own as is and is quite tasty. Made FrenchTarts rustic crock bread to go with it for dinner tonight. Made for PAC Sept2009 edited 2/25/10 I have made this several times since the first time and my family and DH's family love it. I do add in a Tsp of minced garlic, some corn, and black pepper with red peppers on the table for individual tastes. Excellent. Upgrading stars for it's taste, versatility, and deliciousness.

    I've made this recipe a few times over the years and it is truly awesome! I prepared this recently using 7 ounces of frozen lobster meat, substituted about 1 oz. of sliced sweet pimientos for the peppers and cut all other ingredients in half for a superb chowder for 4 or 5 servings.
