Chorizo Corn Chowder

 I love this chowder because it is so sooooo easy  and can easily be adapted for any level of spiciness. If you are sensitive to spice, the chorizo itself will provide a little kick but if you like it hotter, add the red pepper flakes or a pich of cayanne. If you are watching your waistline, you can use lowfat milk but of calories be damned, the heavy cream makes this wonderfully rich....more

Anything For A Good Deal

I was skeptical about cooking Mussels & Chorizo for this week’s French Fridays with Dorie. This is a dish with every ingredient and flavour I love yet my impending training sojourn means I really ought to clear my kitchen of perishables instead of buying more fresh items.

Neither of those two arguments was louder than the other. In the end, it was my inability to refuse a good deal that gave me such a beautiful meal....more
