Italian Chicken Vegetable Stew - Guest Post from Mamma Maria's La Cucina

I LOVE a good stew....especially one packed with lots of "good for you" things!  Mamma Maria's Italian Chicken Vegetable Stew looks incredibly delicious!  There is so much you can do with this to customize it for your family.  I think you'll find it will please everyone at your dinner table.

A little bit about Mamma Maria......At the age of 10, Maria began cooking with her father and quickly developed a love for it!  She enjoys mix-matching different spices and ingredients in different combinations to make unique tastes. Maria is a work at home mommy who LOVES to cook!  Lucky for us, Mamma Maria has agreed to share several of her slow cooker recipes with us over the next few months!  I'm excited to share the first one with you!

Once you make this, please come back and let me know how it was!  And go give her facebook page a "like" and let her know I sent you!!!! ;)
