Saucy Cranberry Chicken
So yeah, photography? I am pretty sure it is not my thing.
I mean I may be able to cook, but I am no photographer!
Seriously, what on earth does ISO and aperture mean? I never knew there were so many photography terms! There is so much to learn, it can be overwhelming at times. I am learning though, everyday. It can be extremely frustrating, but also really rewarding when you take a great photo!
So if any of you have any suggestions or tips I would greatly appreciate them! For now my eye is in the books, on the computer, and in my fancy DLSR camera.
Trial and error. It is how I learned to cook and how I will learn to take great photos of my food!
Ok, my ranting is over now! On to the chicken.
Over here we hate boring chicken! Our chicken needs to be loaded with sauce, doused with seasoning, or coated in parmesan cheese! This chicken is moist and flavorful with a touch of sweetness. So. Delicious. I like to serve along with some rice…..of course!
Oh yeah, and it cooks in the slow cooker all day!
