Clam Chowder= Dairy free

Jodie Scales


I have not eaten clam chowder for over 22 years. I was vegan and now that I eat meats again I crave my favorite foods and clam chowder was one of them. This is, to me , a simple recipe once you have prepped all the ingredients. I truly love cooking. It taste good cold too.
