Slow Cooker Lobster Chowder

It’s hard to believe two years have passed already. I started this journey as a way to share my adventures in the kitchen and favorite recipes. I truly didn’t expect anyone to read my ramblings, forget actually trying my recipes.

Because parties and celebrations should be shared and because this little blogging thing is even more special because of you, I cooked up something super special to share for my blogging anniversary. This would be wonderful as a special Valentine’s Day meal too.

I’m not entirely sure how the idea hit me, but I’m glad it did. Lobster is one of those things that is usually reserved for special occasions, and this is just that! This is a traditional creamy chowder, spiced just right and loaded with potatoes and lobster. It’s warm, comforting and totally decadent.
