Fox Good Day – Thanksgiving Sides


We had so much fun on Fox Good Day in Atlanta! The host, Gurvir Dhindsa, was so much fun and she loves crockin’, so we had a blast sharing new recipes with her. On the show we made three Thanksgiving sides that are simple and of course delicious. The slow cooker is perfect for all that cooking on Thanksgiving when the oven is full and you’re trying to keep things warm until the turkey is ready.

We shared recipes for our Green Bean Casserole found in our cookbook, The Slow Cookin’ Companion, Crockin’ Corn Casserole that is on our Crockin’ Monday Video, and Olive’s Easy Cheese Potatoes found in our new Crockin’ for the Holidays Magazine! We made these recipes using a slow cooker liners that add even more simplicity to this convenient way cooking. Thanks for tuning in! We hope you have a great Thanksgiving with your family and friends this year. Happy Crockin’ Y’all!

Ashley S.
“Favorite gift to Give: My husband is military, and we surprised our parents for our 3rd Christmas at our first duty station. We had received Christmas leave the year before, so told our families that we didn’t get it that year. Seeing the looks on everyone’s faces and their reactions when we surprised them was so awesome and so much fun!”
“Last year I went to the website shutterfly. I gathered a lot of pictures from computer of all the different things my husband and I had done throughout the year. Put it all together in the form of a book and “wrote” little things on each page. He loved it, almost cried, said it was the nicest thing anyone ever gave him.”

“My greatest gift received is seeing my children and their faces light up on Christmas. Nothing is more precious than a child on Christmas morning sitting in a pile of wrapping paper playing with their gifts. It is also a gift for me to be able to spend time with my family, enjoy good food and fellowship together. This Christmas will be extra special because I am graduating from RN school just before Christmas! So excited to be finished!”

“My favorite gift was last year my husband surprised me with my fourth crock pot! He kept making fun of me and said there was no way I was going to get a new crock pot, thats silly. Well I got it! Love him!”

:Some of my favorite Christmas memories are of gifts made by my parents: new bathrobes, a dollhouse built by my dad and decorated by my mom, a dressing table with skirt sewn by mom. It took me many years to realize that the locked basement room served as their holiday workshop!:

Sweet Berry Farm Family Fun


 On Saturday we headed out to Sweet Berry Farms in Marble Falls, TX. It is a family farm with many activities for all. We had such a wonderful day. We invited our good friends the Gerstenberger’s. Gage and Jayden have been besties since about 20 months old. They met at a home daycare that I took Gage to on the days I taught dance lessons. Now they are both in school, and going to different schools so their time together is limited, but we make it a point to get together or have Jayden over to spend the night at least once a month.
Anyway, back to the farm … I haven’t had such a peaceful day in a long time as I had last Saturday. We laughed and laughed. The best part of it all is that my kids were happy and we weren’t in a rush to get anywhere. On these leisurely days, we are reminded how hectic our lives can be and it was a much needed day of rejuvenating.
