We've all heard of clam chowder and just love eating it! Here is a crab chowder you'll love, too. It is a yummy concoction conceived by Meghan Pembleton and submitted to our newspaper. :You can control some of the calories by your choice of milk in this recipe: use either whole, 2%, 1% or skim. Do not cut back on the half-and-helf, however; you need its creaminess in the chowder.
