Lobster Corn Chowder and my love affair with Ina

I need to talk to y'all about Ina Garten and her Lobster Corn Chowder. I rarely follow recipes precisely....unless I'm making one of Ina's recipes. I have fantasies about meeting her and becoming besties, and eating Ina-food for the rest of my life. She's....amazing. (sigh)

So, I want to share one of my favorite Ina recipes of all time.....(drum roll, please).....Lobster Corn Chowder!!

Click here for the recipe. Follow it. Don't stray....

Yes, that's bacon on top. Ohhh yeah...

Quick disclaimer....I know I just said follow the recipe to a T, and I'm about to completely break my own Ina-commandment when I tell you that I sometimes make this recipe with king crab instead of lobster (don't hurt me!). Lobster can get pricey depending on who's having a sale (or rather, who's NOT having a sale), so if the king crab legs look good and are priced attractively, I buy crab instead.

The light, creamy crab and corn stock simmering away....

Cheers!
