(WTNH)– Entertaining Expert Cindy Barbieri talks about InSinkErator and shows us how to make an easy spring time recipe Chicken Nicolina.

InSinkErator surveyed homeowners about household chores and found that while less than 20% of respondents cited “cooking meals” as their most dreaded kitchen chore, more than 40% dreaded cleaning up after meals.

It’s like having one extra person in the house. In fact, InSinkErator makes a disposer called Septic Assist. It includes Bio-Charge(r) Injection Technology, which uses a natural microorganism to help break down food waste. To enter for a chance to win a disposer, visit cindystable.com.
