Skinny Sausage and Corn Chowder

Skinn Sausage and Corn Chowder

This chowder filled with sausage, corn and potatoes is so satisfying, you won’t even know it’s light! I just survived the great arctic freeze.  For the first time ever, I was happy I had that extra layer of fat (compliments of all those Christmas cookies) or I would’ve suffered an untimely frozen demise.  I must have had some sort of premonition as I was shoveling those extra cookies during the holidays, that someday I would be fighting for my … Continue reading →
