can you substitiute wine for the water

Yup! You can substitute wine for water.

I add more onion, some garlic cloves and carrots....then serve with mashed potatoes or noodles

The combination of lemon juice, sugar, and cinnamon sounds interesting, I've never tried that before. Can this be done in a slow cooker, without having to use both the slow cooker and the pan first?

My mother always used to make this! She always used to serve potatoes and carrots with it, how do I do that?

jynx, You put the carrots and potatoes in when you put in the rest of the ingredients.
