Slow Cooker Chicken Cacciatore

This easy slow cooker Chicken Cacciatore is a crowd pleaser!  I created it on a Sunday morning.  It cooked while we were at church and was ready to eat when we got home.

I fully intended to show you a photo of the finished deal.  I took several, but they didn’t turn out at all.  I guess we were so hungry that I snapped too quickly.

This dish is full of chicken, bell peppers and onions in homemade tomato sauce.  Red wine brings more flavor to the sauce, but you can leave this out if you need to.  Serve the chicken and sauce over hot pasta.  I used bow tie pasta, but you can use any shape you like.

Velma’s Chili from Mitford Cookbook and Kitchen Reader

Have you read the Mitford series books by Jan Karon?  Father Tim and Cynthia feel like old friends and so do all the other characters that populate the small town of Mitford.

Pan Fried Steak and Steak Burgers with Red Wine Onions and Laura’s Lean Giveaway!

One of my daughter’s male friends told her that the way to catch a guy is to cook him a steak.  I asked her if she told him how to catch a girl.  She said, she didn’t know how, but it would be harder than just a cooking a steak.  (In a later conversation, we agreed that making Nutella Strudel for her, might work.)

I do know that it made my sons and husband very happy to sit down to a meal of steak and our poor man’s version, Steak Burgers.  The Red Wine Onions made them both even more delicious.

There’s a lot going on in this post – 3 recipes and a giveaway! – so keep reading… [Read more…]
