I saw Rachael Ray make Crab and Corn Chowda Mac last week and it looked and sounded good so I thought I'd give it a shot. The resulting dish certainly looked tasty:
... but the flavors were all wrong. The crab completely overwhelmed the dish (something I'd read in the reviews on FoodNetwork.com, but since we like crab I didn't think it would be an issue). In the description of the recipe in the cookbook she says she wanted to combine mac & cheese and crab and corn soup into one dish. The problem was, the resulting dish was a combination of the two...exactly what she was going for, but it simply did not work. I wish I could explain it better, but all I can say is I would avoid this dish. It was most certainly NOT a keeper.
