  1. I miss eating corn chowder, but every time I make it Bri doesn't eat it :( (Heather)

    1. Hey Heather, if you have one of those hand held blenders you can blend it up for her and then she can't see the corn...maybe there will be enough bacon awesomeness in it to cover the corn taste too:) A handy tool for my picky eaters too! You could also try using a can of creamed corn instead. Hopefully her tastes will change and you can make it again!
