After searching through a bunch of recipes here and elsewhere I couldn't find quite what I was looking for. So instead I decided to whip up my own variation. This will be a work in progress, but as I'm pregnant and dying for a good creamy, but not too unhealthy fish chowder this will do the trick. I'm moderately lactose intolerant, but I'll be sure to include substitutions for lighter, low dairy, or dairy heavy versions. Cheese and cream actually don't have that much lactose in them, so you can use them without much concern about that.. of course you do get the delicious but unhealthy extra calories that come with.
