I am always in search of easy meals that I can prepare in advance or throw in the slow cooker before leaving for work so my family and I can come home to a delicious home-cooked meal. I was so excited to discover April Moore, the host of COOKwithAPRIL on YouTube! Her recipes look amazing, easy to prepare, full of flavor and all with step by step videos to follow! I found out that she just teamed up with Holland House this fall and holiday season and demonstrate how easy it is to add bold flavor to everyday meals. We use Holland House's Marsala and Sherry cooking wines a lot in our meat dishes to add to the flavor of the dishes. I wanted to share a couple of the slow cooker meals that are featured on COOKwithApril's YouTube channel that look so delicious and easy to prepare - I plan on making these in the coming weeks.

  2. This sounds so yummy! I have almost all these ingredients, so I'll have to make these soon.
