Henry, our official Lab Taster, and I have been busy chasing down our garbage cans, lawn furniture, and cushions after this week's windstorm, so it's the perfect time to revisit one of our most requested recipes.

With chilly weather this weekend, here is a great slow cooker dish to try. Coq au vin is a slow-cooked dish made with wine, mushrooms, and pearl onions. The wine reduces to a rich broth and the chicken is fall-off-the-bone tender. Fresh herbs will fill your entire home with delicious aromas that will have your family asking "when do we eat?!"

Thank you to the official sponsor of Foodie Friday: Amalfis in Lawrenceville, NJ. If you are planning a holiday party, check out their great catering menu. Sandra and I have used them for many events at our home, and you'll love having them in yours!
