The Ingredient Watcher Chapter: It’s Our Crockin’ Life

On a daily basis we get asked if we have any recipes that have fresh ingredients or if we have “clean” recipes. So it was a no-brainer to add the Ingredient Watcher chapter into the new book. Not only did we give you some really yummy recipes in this chapter, but we included some very fun pictures of our kiddos as well!

Look at our babies, literally BABIES! Oh where has the time gone?!?

When Jenna and I created the Facebook page in August 2011, it was to help us and about 30 of our mommy friends get a home-cooked meal to the table… Little did we know we would end up making a business out of it!

We were so tired of the inevitable question we kept asking ourselves at 4PM in the afternoon, “Hmm, what do I fix for dinner?” We felt by providing a home-cooked meal we were providing our families with a better meal than if we had just gone through the drive-thru.

We have such a wide variety of crockin’ followers that like different recipes for different reasons. From crockers just wanting a home-cooked meal, to fresh crockin’, to absolutely no msg packets and soups so they make their own seasoning packets and cream of soups, to the vegetarians and the gluten free crockers. It was quite a bit to consider in putting this cookbook together, but we think you will all be pleased! An added feature to the new book, “It’s Our Crockin’ Life”, is that we included a slow cooker size and serving amounts to each recipe in the book! HOLLA! We think this feature alone, will make quite a few of you HAPPY!

Getting in Shape

By

Hey y’all! I had a lot of questions earlier this week about what I am doing to get in shape, so here it goes! I am not a hardcore dieter or workout fanatic, but I like to go at a steady pace and still enjoy myself with food and fun!

When Crockin’ Girls first started up my baby girl was just over three months old. Between carrying around some of my baby weight and the craziness of the Crockin’ whirlwind we were in, I couldn’t even think about taking time for myself to get back in shape! This past September when Stella was about 16 months old, I was finally ready to get back into my groove! Here are some of the changes I have made:
