Colder weather signals belly-warming meals and a time to get creative.  With fond memories of summer gone by, corn is on my mind. I have decided to use our family secret recipe today that incorporates corn into the soup, giving the food a summer feel even heading into this lovely winter season and the holidays.  

Warm meals with delicious foods are memory makers and this season is all about the holly, jolly and excellent occasions.  Tree trimming, holiday caroling, family gatherings all call for warm food service and my spicy corn and crab chowder recipe is a crowd-pleaser that can be made in bulk and ahead of time! The recipe will save you time by using a fast cooking pressure cooker making it a snap to prepare. 

Lavishly live food out loud and let’s prepare a recipe that will warm your bowls and bellies as I present to you my family coveted Pressure Cooker Spicy Corn and Crab Chowder Recipe.
