Enjoy the Season

   As much as we would like to plan ahead to get ahead, Holiday busyness gets in the way. Shopping, decorating, getting ready for company to arrive takes up much of our time. A comforting delicious casserole baked with love is the best way to enjoy a December weeknight for you and your family. This easy recipe is perfect for dinner and even served as a leftover for lunchtime. Our apple-pear crockpot Sauce is easy and a unique combination with the Holiday Chicken Devan. Enjoy the Season!
