My family eats mostly chicken, fish and pork. I like to cook a wide variation of different ideas so that we don't always have the same old thing. One of our favorite dishes is Coq au vin but it can get a little warm cooking this specific dish over the stove. The crock-pot saves time and is so easy which makes it much more enjoyable.
