Crockpot Corn Chowder

    YOU GUYS. Did you hear Friends is coming back for a comeback season?! (Ok, so I’m now hearing this is a rumor but it was still exciting when I read this!!!) I watched Friends off and on the entire time it was on air and I’m SO excited to hear this. *squeals* I hope they don’t ruin it, though & I hope that all the same cast members are back. Can you just hear your significant other groaning?? Oh, the episodes they’ll have to endure with us ;)

    Have you heard about these crazy WordPress sites getting attacked? They’re starting to freak me out! Every time I log into my WordPress dashboard and if it’s a teensy bit slow, I start to freak out and think I’m being hacked. This whole thing makes me feel so uneasy but at the same time, it’s ironic that just last week, I signed up for Sucuri Security and I hope it was money well spent. Protect my site from those hackers! It’s beyond me why people do these types of things. I mean, what kind of “reward” do they get? You know what else is ironic? Going into a sunglasses store and picking up a pair of sunglasses to try on and falling in love with them. And then you realize it’s $480 so you continue to try on other pairs of sunglasses with no luck because you’ve already fallen in love and you can’t get the first ones you tried on out of your head. Nothing compares to it, so you’re shit out of luck and leave sulking because there’s no way you can justify $480 for a pair of sunglasses. No way! It always happens to me – the first thing I try on is always an exorbitant amount of money and of course it always looks SO GOOD. Why?? The shopping gods have it against me.

    This past weekend, Jason & I went beer & wine shopping for our wedding with my parents. Now, Jason & I probably have beer & wine to last us 4 years just hanging out in our basement right now. That, or we look like alcoholics or we’re about to build a bar in our basement. We had so many people come up to us to ask, “what’s your address?,” “what time should we show up?,” and “can I come over?” – funny, but obnoxious after the first 10 people.

    I know that it’s pretty much Spring now and not a lot of people think about soup for warm weather, but I had this sitting in my backlog and I kept delaying posting it because I had all these other recipes I wanted to share first. I figured I might as well share it now when the evenings are still a bit cool because I know when summer time rolls around, the last thing I’ll be thinking about is a large pot of hot soup. So, now or never for this corn chowder!

    I LOVE sweet corn. It’s probably one of my favorite vegetables and I can eat ear after ear after ear of corn in the summer time. Corn anything makes me swoon. This corn chowder is a cinch to whip up since you put everything in a crockpot and let it slowly cook and develop flavor. It’s wonderful!

    I heard about Friends and I can’t believe it!!! I really thought it was a prank at first, but I am SO excited!

    I love corn chowder, and this is a great one for a busy day! Would love to come home to this on a chilly evening!

  • Kathryn says:

    I don’t know whether to be excited or nervous at the idea of Friends coming back…I can’t believe they’re going to get all of the cast back for a season and I don’t know if it’s something that’s better living in my memory. Saying that, I’ll definitely be watching!

  • ashley - baker by nature says:

    Julie, you’re like a mind reader! I’ve been craving corn chowder ALL week. Mmmm, now I just HAVE to make some.

  • Tracey says:

    It’s definitely still soup weather here, and corn chowder is one of my favorites! Yours look absolutely amazing! I think I might be the only person in the world who was never into Friends…I know, right? :)

  • Erin @ The Spiffy Cookie says:

    Happy, happy day!

  • Rachel @ Baked by Rachel says:

    If it’s not everyone it’ll be a total fail of a comeback season but I’ll wait it out and see. I freaking loved Friends and eh hem… So did Josh ha. Shh. Also, you should learn by now – check the price and THEN try on ;)

  • Winnie says:

    This looks yummy! I will give it a try! I love my crockpot! I didn’t hear your Friends news before, so that is cool. My hubby will not be happy. I honeymooned on a vineyard 2 years ago, I mention this as I see you have a lot wine. I found out the hard way that not all of them age well in the basement, so I thought I would mention to ask when buying when best to drink. We bought tons of in the past few years, and are now drinking it before we buy more. Happy wedding planning to you!

  • Tara @ Chip Chip Hooray says:

    My sister sent me that email about the Friends comeback! I’m crossing my fingers it’s not just a nasty rumor…they can’t play with my heart like that. :)

  • Audra | The Baker Chick says:

    I love any chance to make a delicious dinner in our crock pot! Sweet corn is my favorite summer ingredient!

    Yes I heard that Freinds rumor too- I feel like nothing can really compare to the original but I’m optimistic!!

  • Jackie @ Domestic Fits says:

    I’m actually a little scared that they are going to ruin Friends and it won’t be the same! I’ve seriously almost stressed over this: “Emma is like 11 now, and what about Monica and CHandlers twins? And Joey moved to LA for that spin off that didn’t work? What will become of them!” I know. Lame. It’s sort of like seeing your high school crust after 10 years and realizing that he really isn’t as great as you though, I know WAY over thinking this! BUT I know that chowder will be awesome so I’ll just console myself with some that!

  • Stephanie @ Eat. Drink. Love. says:

    I would love a Friends reunion so much, but I don’t think it will ever happen! I watched an interview Lisa Kudrow did not long ago and she seemed annoyed with all the Friends questions, like she was over it. Boo.

    I’m in Seattle right now and it’s cold and rainy and I want a big bowl of this chowder!

  • Tina @ Tina's Chic says:

    Friends reunion?! I’d totally be up for that. Now as far as recipe goes…this soup looks delish! I love sweet corn too and I must try this asap. It’s not too hot out yet in my opinion. :)

  • Elizabeth @ Confessions of a Baking Queen says:

    Been on my to do list for ages! This looks fabulous!

  • Jen @ Jen's Favorite Cookies says:

    I love corn chowder, I make it all the time in the winter! I’ve never made it in the crock pot, though. I think I need to try that, it sounds much easier!

  • Nutmeg Nanny says:

    Yum! I love corn chowder, it’s the perfect comfort food :) I bet yours tastes delicious!

  • Tipsy says:

    First off, let me begin by saying that I do not consider myself to be a good cook. I’m usually pretty “meh” about this whole having to prepare food-stuff. Why can’t the food fairy come and make everything for me? (Or better yet, clean up afterward….)

    For some reason though, I stumbled upon your blog and after reading a few posts, I’ve just been so excited to try my hand at so many things!
    I absolutely loooooove corn in all its forms (Corn chips! corn niblits! corn on the cob with lots of butter! popcorn! omnomnom!) so I HAD to give this a whirl.

    I’ve got mine sitting in my crockpot now, and I can hardly wait for the next 7 hours to pass. XD

    Anyway, whether it turns out to be absolutely amazing, or awful, or merely “meh”, I just wanted to drop a comment anyway. It’s been a while since I’ve been excited to make something in the kitchen, so thanks for providing that little kick in the butt of inspiration. <3

    • Julie says:

      Aw this makes me so happy to read this! I’m so glad I can be a source of inspiration for you to get in the kitchen!! xoxo

  • Jessica says:

    Hi Julie,
    I’m making this soup today and I was wondering if I could cook this on high for 4 or 5 hours instead of low for 7 hours? Will I still get the same results? Hop to hear from you soon!

    Best Regards,

    • Julie says:

      Hi Jessica, sure, I definitely think that’d work!

      • Jessica says:

        I cooked this for 4.5 hours and it turned out great! I might use only 1 tsp of pepper next time because I felt it was a little too hot (I’m a baby when it comes to spicy food) other than that, it was absolutely delicious! :)

        • Julie says:

          Good to hear, Jessica!

  • Kathy says:

    Great recipe! First time reader here! I’m not sure if you’ve answered this in other posts since I’m still navigating your amazing blog. What size crockpot do you use? I have a 2-qt one and often have difficulty finding recipes that fit that size. Do you have any suggestions of how to adjust recipes for a smaller crockpot?

    • Julie says:

      Hi Kathy! I believe mine is a 4 quart crockpot. I’m not positive though because my mom gave it to me and she doesn’t have the box anymore. If you want to adjust recipes for a smaller crockpot, just cut the recipe in half.
