Introducing the Crockin’ Team!

By

Hey y’all! We are busy workin’ on our new Crockin Clean magazine, and are very excited about the new healthy recipes we have for y’all. Along with the upcoming magazine, we have some new voices y’all will be hearing from on Facebook. They are already a part of our Crockin’ Community and are ready to help and support all of our crockin’ friends. Take some time and get to know Dannette, Tiffany, and Shari!

Tiffany and Dannette:
Sisters that live in the same town. They go to church together, vacation together and share a lot of the same friends. They’ve been a part of this crockin’ community since the beginning and love trying out new things in their slow cookers. They enjoy throwing parties and using their slow cookers makes it easy with their busy lives. Dannette is married to an amazing man and has a pre-teen daughter. Tiffany is married to a Fort Worth fire fighter and has a son in college and a son in high school.

Their favorite recipes from the ‘Crockin’ Girls Slow Cookin’ Companion’ are just a few pages away from each other. Tiffany’s fave is the Buffalo Chicken Pasta (page 325) and Dannette’s is the Baked Ziti (page 327).

Shari:
is originally from a small town in Southeast Texas. She’s been married to the same great guy for almost 25 years and has two busy teenagers (a boy and girl). They have to eat dinner at different times many evenings because of work schedules or practices after school, so having a hot dinner ready in the slow cooker has been a life saver. Her favorite slow cookin’ meal is the Angel Chicken (page 330).

Homemade Canned Cream Soup Recipes

By

The best thing about slow cooking is the convenience and ability to customize recipes to your health needs. If you’re looking for heart healthy recipes you can use low-sodium/low-fat soups or make homemade soup. If you’d like to take a step further (and you have the time), try making common cream soups at home! Here are two recipes to get you started.

Homemade cream of chicken soup
½ cup chicken broth
½ cup milk
2-4 tablespoons of flour
salt to taste

Homemade cream of mushroom soup
½ cup vegetable or chicken broth
½ cup milk
2-4 tablespoons of flour
½ cup finely chopped mushrooms
salt to taste
