Slow Cooker Giveaway

Slow Cooker Giveaway from


As I’m cleaning out cabinets, clearing out the clutter and tidying up around the house this past week, I’ve come to realize (once again) that there are some items that just take up more space than they are worth.

Like that 5,945th chip and dip bowl set that we received as a wedding present that still hasn’t been used or the box of cloth remnants I have been saving since the beginning of time to “one day” make that quilt. They deserve better homes than mine. They deserve to be in a home where they’ll be loved and cherished, not shoved to the back of the cabinet on the very tip top shelf.

I’ve also realized (once again) that there are some items that I never ever ever, like ever want to be without.

Like my 5,945th cast iron skillet. I’ll gladly find space for them even if I have to begin storing them in my oven like my Grandmother.

I’ll also always make room for my slow cooker. It truly is a parent’s best friend.

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.

  24. I would try to replicate my mothers beef stew. It was outstandingly delicious and i have a feeling it was based on one that my grandmother made. Not long before she died, she became angry with me (not unusual) and although she kept lots of recipes from her friends, from newspapers and magazines, she either destroyed or threw out all of the ones i particularly liked that were from her and my grandmother. Wishing you a happy and healthy New Year with many more to come.

  25. The first thing I ever cooked in a slow cooker was Pork…I threw a can a beer, pork roast, onions, sauerkraut, carrots and potatoes came back 6 hours later…………… was this the best!!

  26. I will make my BBQ pulled pork recipe my family & friends enjoy so much. Slow cookers are a great appliance for working moms. Thanks for running the contest.

  27. The first entree I will cook in my new slow cooker would be pulled pork.

  28. Out of the thousands of tasty possibilities I could make in a slow cooker, I would still have to make my old favorite to break a new one in…..a roast with potatoes, carrots and onions. It’s a meal that brings back so many memories of family dinners; just the scent of it fills me with nostalgia, flooding m with warm memories of my mother and grandmother. Somehow, nothing else says “home” and “family” quite as definitively. Sunday dinner was a family affair, even after we kids got old enough to want to hang out with our friends or boyfriends. It was a time of sharing what went on in our week, of bonding over simple, good food prepared with love and pride. All to soon we grew up, went off to school or get married, and whether we stayed in town or moved away, those Sunday dinners became, bit by bit, things of the past. Just the aromatic scent can send me back to those days, though, so although there are certainly much fancier, more gourmet dishes to prepare in the slow cooker these days, sometimes the old favorites are the best, for they not only nourish the body, they nourish the soul.

  29. I would cook black eye peas!

  30. I’d make some granola. I love being able to use my slow cooker for that and not have to be worrying that it is burning in the oven. Thanks for the opportunity to possibly get a new slow cooker.
