If a recipe calls for regular milk can i substitute it with Carnation canned evaporated milk? This may sound silly but I am at a loss here!

You sure can! You can use it as is or you can use a evaporated milk/water ratio of 1:1. So if the recipe calls for a cup of milk, it would be 1/2 cup evaporated milk, 1/2 water. If you use it without diluting, the taste will be richer.

I was raised on drinking them all. I now prefer to use carnation in my cakes and pies but they both are good.

I often swap out canned milk for regular in my cooking becaus it gives recipes a richer flavor.

There is no reason that you couldn't substitute. However, you do have to remember that the evaporated milk is going to be a lot stronger than regular milk so you would want to add some water to the canned evaporated milk so that you would get the right consistency.

Whenever I'm wanting a richer dessert, I always used canned milk- without adding water, especially when making chocolate cakes and chocolate icing. I've used regular milk, but the carnation just seems to make it better. Or it could be because the only milk I buy is 2%.

Yup -- I've done it many times! It started when I realized too late that we were out of milk, so I popped open a can and used it. What a nice error because I do it all the time now!
