One Pot Clam Chowder

I LOOOOOOOOVE how easy this was! It can easily be made in less than an hour with plenty of leftovers for another round. Serves 4 total. We love a really good clan chowder. This one isn't as "thick" as I love it, but I could always add a tablespoon or so of cornstarch to thicken it up. Now I just need to find the perfect sourdough recipe and perfect that!

Mint Chocolate Cookie Dough Brownies

I'm getting ready for the holidays and trying out a few new recipes. I'm also 19 weeks pregnant soooo yeah...I'm making a bunch of stuff for my cravings. No, I don't over indulge. I'll probably eat about two of these brownies, but they satisfied my craving for chocolate mint :) I made these on a Saturday night and then tried them out on Sunday morning (haha...great breakfast). They needed time to set in the fridge. So next time, I'll make them in the afternoon if I want them that night. 

Hope you enjoy!
