Fresh Slow Cooker Corn Chowder

Here is a wonderful recipe for Slow Cooker Corn Chowder. Not much could taste better than amplifying the taste of this chunky soup by using FRESH corn kernels straight off the cob.

Rainbow Kitchen Sink Pudding Cookies

Rainbow Kitchen Sink Cookies Several weeks ago, I made these cookies with two beautiful little girls: my niece Natalie and my daughter Julia.
