There is a new Facebook page that is taking the interwebz by storm. I have NEVER seen this much frenzy over a new facebook page like I have with this one! It's even bigger than Extreme Couponing if you can believe it! People have liked the page in droves and are sharing their favorite crockpot recipes with other Crockpot Girls.
I liked the page last week when they were around 200,000 “likes.” Today they have reached 800,000 “likes.” It's seriously crazy! Makes me want to bring out all my crock babies and share them with you! So here goes!
Last Christmas, my sister got me the Trio Slow-Cooker server. There are three crocks that stay warm in one heating unit. I haven't used this yet but my vision is to cook my entree, side and dessert all at once. How cool would that be?!
For small dips, I use my lil' dipper Crock Pot. I've made an easy Reuben Dip and simple spicy cheese dip. So, the lil' dipper lives up to its name of holding yummy foods to dip. :)
For our everyday meals, I tend to use the Cook ‘n Carry 6-quart Crock-Pot. While many of our meals aren't a full 6-quart size, it gives the means more room to strew around. Less crowding helps it cook faster too. I really like it since it clamps closed tightly. It also comes with a matching spoon to spoon stuff out with. The spoon attaches to the lid so it's nice to take places too.
The final slow cooker we own is a classic 3.5-quart Crock-Pot. I have been using this one less since we can only keep one in our kitchen cabinets. The rest stay in the basement near my stockpile.
