Want a classy at home date night for your loved one so you don’t have to deal with the stress of going out and forgetting reservations on Valentine’s day? Want an even easier dessert that you can whip up when you get home from work that will be ready in time to send the night off with some whipped cream on top? (He’ll never know you didn’t spend all day baking). Want a chance to win a cherry red Crock-Pot? Yeah, I thought so.
For my regulars, you know by now how much I love my slow cooker. I am featuring it every Monday in winter, after all. So when Crock-Pot wanted to send me a classy red version of their Cook and Carry, I figured why not share the love with my readers (get it, Valentine’s humor… no? Aw, come on). I love how easy the crock pot is to clean, and the snazzy lock in place lid that makes transport a breeze. Think of how easy bringing a hot dish to parties will be from now on? So, if you are just starting out, a new cook, or a cook who has not investing in the life changing product that is the slow cooker yet, Crock-Pot’s Cook and Carry is a nice starter slow cooker to ease your way into things. It comes very well packed and has a warm, low, and hot setting for various cooking needs. And with 6 quarts to fill you can even shove an entire small bird in the slow cooker for weeknight suppers! Seriously, I’m slow cooker obsessed this winter – and you should be too!
