 Fall calls for hearty and comforting recipes. Soups are the wonderful way to keep warm and cozy is the chilly weather. (Or crank up the AC and enjoy a bowl if you are in the warmer climate.) This Corn and Potato Chowder knows just how to hit the right spot!

(This recipe was originally a guest on inspiredbyfamilymag.com but it came back home!)
I am so excited! It’s finally starting to feel like fall in Florida. It’s finally cooling down to high 70s low 80s, it’s actually nice out! We are not seeing much of fall colors around yet, but I will settle for the cooler weather.
Since it’s so nice out, we’ve been spending more time outside. In the evening it actually feels cool enough to run home and have some soup for dinner. I love cooking soups and my little guy loves eating soups. This is a perfect recipe to share with you today!
