I read all the reviews on this chowder and then combined the suggestions as follows (I doubled the recipe BTW): Precooked the potatoes in 2 cans of chicken broth and reserved the cooking liquid, Added 1 Tbsp. minced garlic and 2 Tbsp. of dried parsley flakes when I sauted the celery after omitting the onions (picky eaters), warmed up the cream cheese in micro in order to speed up the melting in the soup pot, added a few drops of Tabasco sauce and a bay leaf, added 2 cups slightly defrosted frozen whole kernel corn with shrimp and omitted the wine. After adding the shrimp, corn, salt and pepper; the chowder was a little too thick so I added 2 cups of the reserved chicken broth from the potatoes. Next time I'll add a half cup at a time until the desired thickness is reached; it ended just a little too thin for my tastes. Anyway, after alll these changes my family was happily surprised with this dish. Don't know if I'll make it again though:)
