    LifeIsGood has entered the #RSC contest and has a crockpot recipe that is so easy and tasty.

    Sadly she just entered it last week and the contest ends in a week or two.

    I did a photo that is not very good sure does not show how easy and good the recipe is, posted because LIG does not do food photos and I want her to have one but would be thrilled if someone tried and did an even better photo.

    All comments and suggestions are welcome.

    Oh yah helps if I give you the name and link icon_redface.gif LifeIsGood’s entry is Crock Pot Pesto Ranch Chicken and Veggies #RSC 495174

    I think the photo is good and LOVE how you used the red dish

    What I have problems with too is when the dish has that halo glow to it and I normally can crop it so it is not AS prominent...with this if you took that portion of the photo out you would destroy the photo

    Re did and this is what I it any better? The recipe looks yum and simple to to too!

    I've never tried pesto with chicken, yet read about it several times recently!

    Deb, I also like the red plate, because the food is not that colourful -- so the red sets it off better.

    Mickey, yes, we all battle sometimes with a "shine in the wrong place", but I must say it does not bother me at all in Deb's photo.

    However, your edit is not bad -- but I prefer the original! icon_wink.gif icon_wink.gif

    Thanks all for all the input!! icon_biggrin.gif icon_biggrin.gif

    It was a photo challenge because of the glare on the edge of bowl which no matter what I could not get away from.

    It was a tasty and forgiving recipe.

    That looks so good,kinda like a chicken stew...I can honestly say I've never had pesto or cooked with it..Does it have a strong flavor?

    wave.gif Halloweenfairy, pesto is best when made fresh and has a stronger flavor when fresh. You can buy some pretty good ones in the refrigerator section of the store but they are usually more oily and milder in flavor. Would steer you away from the powdered ones as my mother tried them and said they were awful.

    Basic pesto is basil, olive oil, pine nuts and parmesan cheese. But if you don’t like one or more of those ingredients there are some made with walnuts and arugula, also there are some made with spinach.

    DH and I really liked Zurie’s Arugula Pesto Con Noci
