Clam chowder is basically a beautiful combination of things I can’t eat: heavy cream, flour, and croutons. My taste buds and my stomach don’t agree sometimes.So I did the next best thing by recreating it at home in my gluten free and dairy free version.

Italian Sausage and Potato Foil Dinner

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not a very good (nor a very ambitious) cook. Whenever I search for new recipes online, I always include the word “easy” in my search terms.
