Crockin’ Back-to-School Giveaway


And the winner is…Tiffany M. We just loved her thoughtful tip and one that really touched our hearts, knowing how much family and food mean to us! ha. Thanks Tiffany for a great idea that we hope to begin today for our kiddos that way we’ll have the album done by the time they go to college! Oh my.

“Before I went away for college, my mom gathered all of my favorite recipes from all of my grandparents, cousins, aunts, etc and wrote them down on colorful note cards. She organized them in a photo album and started each person’s section of recipes with a picture of that person followed by their recipes that I loved the most.”

And because we had SOOOO many great tips (really, you should read them all), we selected 4 runner-ups that will a FREE copy of our Slow Cookin’ Companion.

This is by far the best slow cooker cook book! I show it to everyone who comes to my house and tell them its the best cookbook they will ever buy! The recipes are perfect for a stay at home mom! The pics are beautiful! My 80 yr old great aunt is on a tight budget and loves her crock pot-but can’t afford a book. I would love to win one for her as a surprise!!!

Peggy T.
Yes I would love this book. I bought one for my daughter-in-love and would love to have one for myself. She loves it and I would love it too!

Lisa A.
I love The Crockin’ Girls Slow Cookin’ Companion! My family loves the recipes and they are so easy to make. The best thing is that my dad will even eat what I’ve made so far! This is my “cherry snowball” type of daddy who will not stray far from his steak and ketchup. This book is on my mom’s Christmas list now. Would love to win it for her!

Tyra B.
This is an absolute top-notch cookbook. The pictures make my mouth water. I haven’t tried a recipe that our family didn’t like. I love that they are so easy and pleasing at the same time. I would love to have another to pass along to my bestie who has asked for several of the recipes from mine! :)

Little Moments, Big Blessings


Last Thursday Gracie and I went to get our toenails painted. When I picked her up from daycare, I asked her if she would like to go with me to get my toenails painted and get hers done too and she immediately said, “Ooooh that will be fun.” I asked her because she is very hesitant towards strangers. The girl can stare a hole through you if she wants to. She seemed quite excited, so I thought let’s give it a try. She is a girly girl and loves to have her toenails painted. (fingernails and toenails are called the same thing in her world)
