Consider this your warning.  Tis the season for soups, stews, chowders, chilis and any warm, comforting food you eat with a spoon, and those recipes will be invading The Little Chef that Could starting now!  I apologize but when the weather gets cold all this chica wants is yummy “spoon foods”.  The kind of foods that warm you up, makes you want to reach your coziest blanket, snuggle buddy, and remote.  I promise, I won’t negate some other yummy recipes but needless to say I am pretty damn excited for soup season! Kicking off the season is a flavorful fish chowder.  With a light tomato base adn the flavors of robust herbs  a steaming pot of this is perfect for a chilly fall weeknight.
