Smoky Corn Chowder with Shrimp

I don’t wanna beg, buuuuut… Meet your new summer lover. His name is Chowder. Or, Chow-duh if you like to LIVE ON THE EDGE.

Smoked Chickpeas. No, Not That Kind.

So I’ve been mentally packing for my trip this week. One of the items I was giddily going to include was my new pair of cream Sperry Topsiders. Then the darkness set in: a cruel trick from Mother Nature, a plot against me in my desire to wear warm weather footwear. I tell you what, […]
