Crockpot Crab and Corn Chowder Recipe

Crockpot Crab and Corn Chowder Recipe

I get a lot of magazines. The one magazine that I love is Family Circle. I got this super Crockpot Crab and Corn Chowder recipe that I wanted to share with you.

Here is what I would change. I would use frozen corn. It was difficult to get the corn off the cob when the kids were starving. Our son can’t eat seafood so I took some out of the crockpot for him and his sister before I added the crab. The other thing I would change is I would hide the leftovers from my husband. This soup was yummy!!!!  I hope you enjoy. It cost about $16 but it made two complete meals and a lunch. I could have made it cheaper but I bought the larger can of crab (located in the fresh fish section of your grocery store) instead of the amount the recipe called for.

Steakhouse Potato Soup in 5 Minutes? Believe it! Soup’s On!

Disclosure:My family happily ate their fill of Idahoan® Premium Steakhouse® Potato Soups as part of the #IdahoanSteakhouseSoups and Mom It Forward Blogger Network Campaign. All opinions and full bellies are our own.

Do you have an item that you never eat at home but always order when dining out if it is available on the menu? Something delicious that you love but just don’t want to put forth the effort to make it at home? Maybe it is something that can only be done right by your favorite restaurant. For me that item is steakhouse potato soup. I absolutely love thick hearty chunky potato soup but I can’t quite seem to make it as good as my favorite restaurants and certainly can’t get it on the table quickly. Until now.

 

Idahoan Steakhouse Potato Soup tastes like slow cooked and simmered soup but is ready in just five minutes

Hoppin John Recipe

 For many years, black-eyed peas have been eaten on New Year’s Day in hopes of bringing good luck in the coming year. Black-eyed peas are traditionally cooked with ham or salt pork, as the hog symbolizes prosperity. Nowadays, we still cook the black-eyed peas with ham or the ham hock because (many times) we have it left over from our Christmas meal. And a Classic Hoppin John Recipe is one of my favorite ways to eat black-eyed peas. Continue reading

Lately because of all the snow my little one has been home with me more than normal.

Recently our family has started doing Weight Watchers so I wanted to make sure I could make something for lunch that we would both enjoy, but not undo our day.

4 Ingredient cheese fondue

 Easy Fondue Recipe

I have a love affair with cheese. It is okay my husband knows. He used it to his advantage. I remember years ago he did just that. Yes, it is a bit foggy to go back years ago. When did I get this old? I remember being in college and we went on a date. You know the one where you put on fancy clothes. He put on a suit and I put on a dress. You could say our love was confirmed over an easy fondue recipe.Continue reading
