#Recipe Redo: Corn Chowder

Today I am updating the third post and the first recipe that I ever put on this blog on September 1, 2013.

It is amazing to look back at my old posts.  My first and second posts were also on this day LOL so you can get a look at my first day of blogging AND get one of my husband's favorite recipes that I make.

My first post was simply a photo of a painting I had done with one paragraph below.  In my second post, a couple of hours later on the same day, I talked about canning salsa (no recipe though) and building a lean to for my hogs.

Then, later that night, I decided to share another post.  I liked this blogging stuff right from the get go.......

The final post of that first day contained my recipe for Corn Chowder.   I shared that each year I make pot after pot of corn chowder at my husband's request and freeze it so we can enjoy it all winter long.


And I shared this photo of all my chowder ready to go into the freezer.  No markings on the photo.  No editing of the photo.  I was green as green could be but I knew that this recipe had to be shared so I shared it.  I did know that much about blogging!

It is now nearly 5 years later.  I'm still blogging (sometimes multiple times a day) and I am still putting up corn chowder each and every year.  I pulled some out of the freezer the other day and served it up for dinner with these Ranch BBQ Beef Sandwiches.  


This time I made sure to get a photo of the actual chowder.  It is like summertime on a spoon regardless of the weather outside.   Please link back to the original recipe.  It is written for 4 servings but is easily doubled and quadrupled. 

I'm anxious to hear how you like this soup, please stop back and let me know.

  4. I'm glad you finally got a good pic of it. You know every day it is getting warmer outside and with it (at least in Ohio) is the statewide sea of corn. What a great recipe to have to use some of it.

    1. I think we are not alone Carlee and I think we are harder on ourselves than we need be.

  14. Ha ha. Isn't it funny to look back on your first years of blogging and laugh and the bad photos, inexperience evident in the posts? But I'm glad the recipe stands the test of time. This is one I'll have to make for my hubby, as he loves chowders as well.
