It’s a pleasure partnering with Mirum Shopper today to bring you this delicious soup recipe, great Target Store products and fun in the kitchen with the kids!

Autumn Corn Chowder

Creating family fun with Fall Flavors is right up my ally. Target is one of our favorite places to stock up on Fall essentials. Getting my kids in the kitchen to help with dinner is always a highlight for me. I love to teach them and get them excited about cooking with great ingredients. Not only is is fun, but there’s a real sense of bonding that happens. Love sharing these experiences with my boys!

Autumn Corn Chowder

For todays recipe, my eleven year old was the lucky one that got to help mom! I started by teaching how to be safe while chopping vegetables and he even got to cut practice cutting a few vegetables. He loved this!
