Crockin’ Tips

From the Pantry

One of the great things about crockin’ is the chance to be creative! It’s fun to just open up the pantry, start throwin’ things together, and discover a new recipe or two! To do this though, it’s important to keep some essentials in the pantry. Here’s a list of key ingredients we find helpful when it comes to making  a variety of recipes. Keep these on hand and you’ll find crockin’ just became even easier!

Less Mess, Less Stress

Do you ever wish you had an extra set of hands? Yeah, we sure do too! There are mornings and days that we’re lucky if we get our hair in a ponytail and teeth brushed. Our cooking may be slow, but our pace is fast!

Something that makes our day a little less crazed is using Reynolds® Slow Cooker Liners. They’re really functional and make clean up a breeze. Who wants to clean dishes after a long day?! Not us! They’re made of nylon, BPA free, and fit majority of slow cookers on the market. You can put all of your ingredients in the liner and cook using the regular cook times. Once the recipe is done simply serve from the crock or dish it out, but leave the liner in the crock until it cools. Some of our dishes have juices left after they’re done so be careful lifting it out. And that’s it! Don’t be surprised if your kids start offering to do the dishes when they see you using a liner with your next Crockin’ Girls recipe! Oh by the way make sure to print off a $0.75 coupon on the Reynolds® Kitchens website. Happy Crockin’ Y’all!
