Happy Tuesday, friends! School has started back here and my slow cooker has barely left my kitchen countertop since! Mercy, how I do love that thing! I thought it was high time that I shared a fun giveaway to share my love of this handy little appliance!

Slow Cooker Giveaway from

You know, there are few things in my kitchen that I go on and on about how much I love them – my collection of cast iron skillets that is borderline hoarder level, the wooden spoons that I absolutely cherish, my sheet pans that work for everything under the sun, and my slow cooker that makes any busy family’s life a whole lot easier!

I’ve written about my love for it on more than one occasion, but if you need just one reason to fall in love with it, it would be this.


Yes, 50 Slow Cooker Suppers that I think your family will love!

But if that doesn’t do it for you, I’m also giving you my cookbook that includes so many delicious slow cooker recipes that you are sure to love. There’s a little something there for everyone.

So, since I love mine more than may be respectable, I decided you might love one, too!


Because I think you’d love this slow cooker as much as I do, I’m giving away three (3) of these Hamilton Beach Set n’ Forget Programmable Slow Cookers  along with a copy of Add a Pinch: Easier, Faster, Fresher Southern Classics!

  1. I loved getting and organizing all my new pencils/pens, erasers, notebooks, etc. As a matter-of-fact, I still love getting & organizing all those supplies. Thanks for the opportunity of this great giveaway!

  2. I was always so excited about all the new possibilities the new school year had. Seeing my friends and the new classes, learning new subjects. Everything and anything was possible as the new year began!

  3. I was always excited by my new textbooks and covering them with book covers. Getting everything ready for the first day all my folders, pens , pencils. My outfit laid out it was always such a Special day. Full of new beginnings and expectations.

  4. Starting a new school year was such an exciting time. I remember feeling the butterflies on my first day not knowing who would be in my class, what my teacher would be like and new bus routes. At the same time I was so excited to reconnect with old friends. I loved going back to school shopping and couldn’t wait to wear a brand new trendy outfit and show off my new backpack. Such simple moments. Looking back I can still feel those nervous and excited butterflies that the first day of a new school year brought!

  5. long. long ago in 1942 I was in high school. this incident happened in ancient history class. Someone in class erased something on the black board that the young teacher had written. Since no one wpuld admitted to doing this, she punished the entire class. The punishment was that we would miss our bus to take us home.I remember walking five miles along the railroad tracks tp reach home. I had happier memories of high school. I wonder if any of my classmates or the teacher remembers this incident? I am now 91 years old. I have since forgiven the guilty one and the teacher.

  6. When I was going to school in the 50’s, we didn’t get many new clothes. But we did get a new dress for the first day of school. It was so special!!

  7. It was always exciting shopping for a new outfit
    and school supplies. The best of all was sharing
    summer vacation stories with my friends.
    Always loved cheering at the 1st home football
    game. Great memories for sure.

  8. I remember wanting to wear my new school coat on the first day back after Summer. Unfortunately my mom said no because the coat was wool and it was about 90 degrees that day.

  9. I have a weird love for back-to-school shopping. Notebooks and pencils shouldn’t be so exciting, but for some reason it was so much fun to pick out new ones every year.

  10. Since I work in a school, I still get to start a new school year every year! I love my job as an Instrucitonal Coach! I get to work with students and teachers everyday. I look forward to going and buying new school supplies every year! I love/collect pens!

  11. Excitement!-returning to friends,schedules and,learning.Returning to a sense of purpose,expectations and accomplishments. A great time of year!

  12. When I was in primary school my mother always brought my brother and myself to a Buster Brown store that had a carousel in it. It was the best part of bts each year.
