What’s super special about this post is that until I was assigned to create something from Sarah’s blog, I hadn’t ever heard of her. There’s pure awesomeness in making new foodie connections, and let me tell ya, there’s a heck of a lot of love that I just acquired for her blog and her recipes! Oh, and when I found her Pinterest boards, I learned that we have more than our love for food and cooking in common. Sarah is a librarian, so of course she loves to read. I also love to read. Mostly cookbooks and the Bible. Sarah and I also share a love for cats and Jesus! After I learned that about her, I knew in my heart that we could be twins separated at birth and that we’re destined to be best friends. (Yes, I have a flair for the dramatic…) Then it got better… I learned that her husband Ben loves bacon. That seals the deal. Now I want to move in next door to her!
I had a horribly difficult time deciding which recipe of hers that I wanted to make. She’s got recipes for everything from a sinfully delicious Pumpkin French Toast Sandwich (which I’m absolutely making once the fall weather hits) and Brown Sugar Bacon Twists (made by her husband, Ben) to quick and healthy dinners like Pineapple Fried Rice. August (when I made this recipe) was crazy busy, so I figured that I’d find a yummi slow cooker recipe of hers to make. One quick search through her dinner recipe index landed me smack dab in the middle of her recipe for slow cooker Italian chicken! Sara calls hers Crock Pot Saucy Italian Chicken.
Before I made a final decision, I took a quick look through my recipe database to see if I had already made a recipe for slow cooker Italian chicken. Turns out, I’ve made very few things in my slow cooker. This needs to change, because I love using it! That search did remind me that I need to make another batch of BBQ sticky rice and another slow cooker Italian meatloaf pretty soon, though. Those are amazing dishes!
There was just one small change that I made to Sarah’s recipe. I absolutely detest olives of all colors, shapes, and sizes. They’re slimy and too salty and they make me gag. No hate mail, please.
It was no problemo for me, I used fresh mushrooms instead. Easy peasy!
