autumn cozy Eastern Shore fireside laughter memories made Pearls & Pasta Shrimp Chowder stay safe un-recipe Winter

{ Scroll down for this delicious & super simple Shrimp Chowder Recipe }
During our stay at home months I sent you a few emails about ‘What’s Going On’, along with family 'un-recipes', and your responses were touching, and made me feel good that I could help you all out a bit in the kitchen!
I’ve always wanted to connect my two loves, cooking and Marinella Jewelry. Who knew it would take a major unfortunate virus to make Pearls & Pasta happen. While nowadays we don't have pasta every day it did spawn my love of food and cooking!
Fall calls for cozy sweaters, fireside s'mores and of course soups, stews and chowders!
Shrimp Corn Chowder, it’s a recipe that warms our bones & comforts our souls.
This recipe, for me, is a mix of ode to summers spent on the Eastern shore and greetings to Autumn, it’s the perfect mix of memories made and of what’s to come as we head into the Fall\Winter seasons staying cozy, safe & well!
Enjoy this simple & delicious recipe!
