Color My Crock


We’re from Texas where bigger is better and color is mandatory! We travel to the big city of Dallas at least once a month to film our Crockin’ Monday videos and we maaaaayyyy do some shopping  :). We stopped into Tar-jay (Target), one of our favorite stores, and we were greeted by these beautiful Bella Dots collection of slow cookers. We had to go over a look, touch, open and then walk away with them. They’re a perfect combination of our love for Crockin’ and color. Who knew you could accessorize your kitchen with a crock? But we do now! They aren’t programmable, but they still cook evenly and they look great on the table if you’re serving your dish directly out of the crock. They’re still available at Target so go get one in your favorite jewel tone color! Crockin’ never looked so good.
