This Farmer Sausage Corn Chowder is oh so creamy, packed with vegetables, savoury sausage and tastes even more amazing when sprinkled with bacon and cheddar cheese. There’s even an option for a Gluten-Free version too!
I have the utmost appreciation for soups that offer many different textures and a satisfying mouthfeel, and folks this ones’ got it. The flavours and textures of the sausage, potatoes, corn, carrots, bell peppers, celery, onions, and the creamy roux (flour and butter) all work together to create a deliciously edible masterpiece.
Not to mention, if you decide to top this soup with some shredded cheese and crissssspy bacon your tastebuds will THANK you!
These Strawberry Shortcake Bars with Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting and fresh sliced strawberries are a super simple alternative to baking a layer cake! I absolutely love and appreciate the ease of this recipe. (And don’t be shy–pile on those sliced strawberries and consider this a “healthy” snack…we can do that, right…?) 😀
In need of an easy dessert?
The initial weeks after my big wedding cake extravaganza back in April, (click here to read all about it my first wedding cake experience!), I was all baked-out. Actually, I wouldn’t even go that far. I was just exhausted. I was tired of being on my feet all day at work and then all evening post-work. I was tired of spending my precious, much-needed weekends cooped up in the kitchen causing me to be too tired to see friends or visit family. I needed one of those weekends where I had no obligations, no reason to set an alarm in the morning, and no one to answer to (Jarryd being an exception, of course).
Easter weekend was on its way and showing up at the family gathering without a dessert in-hand would just be unacceptable. (Yes, I’m the “designated dessert bringer” and I’m totally OK with that!) I needed something easy, super quick to put together, and just stress-free…
Normally something stress-free to me is something that I’ve already made before and have full confidence that it’s going to be a hit because it’s already been tested. My amazing carrot cake recipe is one that I could do with my eyes closed, BUT I’ve already gifted my family gatherings with that one–more than once too. So I needed to find something new, spring-themed, and simple…
