Comfort of Home Sherry Potatoes

George and Tabitha know how precious it is to spend time together with their children. This is George’s favourite recipe and he shares it with everyone he knows. George and Tabitha’s own childhoods were very rough and many predicted they would never make it, but they did. They have made it and did so in spades!

When Carla Johnson was a teenager, her Mennonite grandmother caught her mom pouring red wine into a pan of chicken cacciatore and scolded, "Cooking with sin, are we?" That delightful memory inspired her blog & award-winning book "Cooking With Sin: Great Recipes Dipped in Alcohol & Wrapped in a Wonderful Story!"
