Corn Chowder

Late summer when the weather starts to cool off my mind wanders to this recipe. An old time family favorite, this recipe is loosely adapted from the New Laurel's Kitchen.

Corn Chowder
Serves 6-8 hungry people

To a large soup pot add,
1 bunch of celery, diced
1 onion, diced
4 cups diced potato

Add 1 tablespoon of salt and water to cover simmer until the potatoes are almost cooked and 2 cups of fresh raw corn off the cob (canned or frozen if you don't have fresh)

While the potatoes are cooking make a white sauce with 1 stick of butter, a half cup of flour and 3 or 4 cups of milk. Add the white sauce to the soup. be careful not to boil. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add diced cooked crispy bacon.

Organic Lotion Giveaway

I like to describe the difference between store bought and handcrafted soap and lotion as the same as the difference between a beautifully baked loaf of homemade bread fresh from the oven and a loaf of Wonder bread from the grocery store shelves. Now, if you consider the difference between a home baked loaf made with organic ingredients and conventional home baked bred there is a subtle improvement in flavor but not a remarkable difference in quality. However, your body will receive far more nourishment from the organic one. It is the same with bath and body products.

Many people don't realize that the skin is the body's largest organ. And, as with all body organs, it serves a vital purpose. The skin's function is detoxification. The skin can not function properly if it is bogged down dealing with topically applied toxic chemicals. Only the freshest and most natural subsistence's should be used for skin care. 

Moving to organic ingredients and more eco friendly packaging has been a long term goal of mine. Finally, after months of research, formulation and testing my new organic lotion is ready!
