Grammy’s Corn Chowder Soup

In 1989, my family had a reunion and everyone contributed to a cookbook full of tasty meals, desserts and breads. 

I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorites so I’m starting with our classic corn chowder! I cherish this little book and I’m so glad I have it!

I love trying new recipes, but there is definitely something to be said for the classics. 

There’s nothing better than a bowl full of chowder!

And if you’re from up north like my Grammy, you know it’s pronounced “chowdah”.
