We loved all the non-traditional Christmas Dinner ideas you shared on Facebook yesterday! In our Crockin’ for the Holiday magazine we list some of our favorites too. Jenna’s family always decides at Thanksgiving what theme they’ll go with, whether it’s Italian, Mexican, Seafood or even breakfast! Below are some non-traditional dishes you can serve out of the crock to feed a crowd. Easy prep and easy clean up so you can get out of the kitchen and play games or sing carols! Merry Christmas y’all!
H is for Hectic and Holiday! How can Christmas be a week away?! If you want to avoid the mall and long lines this week, but you’re still in need of a few last minute gifts, use your slow cooker silly! These desserts require easy-prep and make a ton in a short amount of time. Now that’s what we’re talkin’ about! Just wrap them up in festive bags or tins and your list is done!
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.
Wondering why you are boiling on low, or why that recipe didn’t come out quite right? Slow cookers are like any other kitchen appliance, you need to get to know how they cook so that you can adjust the way you cook in them. During our Crockin’ Monday Test Kitchen Video (watch here) we tested the same recipe in different crocks. Check out the results below of our crockin’ experiment.
