 Corny Potato Chowder
From Lansing, Michigan, Lee Deneau writes, “Nothing warms my body and brings back memories of home like a bowl of corn chowder. My mother's recipe was much more time consuming than mine, but I like this one just as well.” With lots of corn, bacon and potatoes, the soothing soup will fill you up on chilly days.
