I have been on a bit of recipe break because of lack of access to a kitchen to spread out and cook in ☹️ but now I’m home for a bit and it was snowing yesterday which made me want cozy soup. While watching one of my many favorite cooking shows one of the chefs made a “creamed” corn sauce and it was stuck in my mind since so decided on a chowder since it was snowing and about 10 degrees outside. This is such a cozy chowder and it freezes great.
