  5. Every fall I make spiced apple cider in a crockpot by leaving cider stewing all day with orange rind, cloves, nutmeg, and a few other fun throw-ins. Delish! Would love to win a new one to replace my old ratty stand-by… :-)

  6. My favorite thing in my crockpot is probably chicken to shred for burrito fillings, although from all of the other posts, I probably need to try ribs…

  7. I like to put fresh potatoes and carrots, from my garden with onion in the bottom and put a whole chicken that is seasoned with fresh herbs into a crock pot and let it cook all day till we are done with homeschool and I can just have a break finally. But my crock pot is so temperamental. Been thinking of having to get a new one. So this would be awesome! Everyone knows homeschooling on 1 income is not cheap but priceless indeed!

  8. I cook lots in the crock pot. It’s perfect for busy homeschoolers! I’m not sure if I can pick a favorite but my most recent was last night…we had cream cheese Italian chicken. It’s so yummy!

  9. We made ribs in the crock pot last week and they were very good, so I guess that is my current favorite. We were also talking about how old the crock pot is getting and will need to be replaced very soon. Fingers crossed for the giveaway!

  10. I’m a traditionalist! The first thing I ever made in a CrockPot was chili, and it still is the best thing I make in a CrockPot.

    Also, I ADORE this Damask pattern and my old CrockPot is getting kind of unreliable (it gets too hot sometimes).

  11. Pretty crockpot! I made your white chicken chili last week and we liked it is much, Husband had asked to have beans and soup soon so when I cooked this delicious recipe, it was a winner on both ideas, thank you.

  12. My favorite thing to make in a crock pot is short ribs. Caramelize then on the stove top and then toss ’em in the slow cooker and let them get fall off the bone tender.

  13. I like to make granola in a crockpot. And a sausage & apples dish. At this point I have no crockpot because the one I had developed a nasty odor in the unsealed bottom edge of the crock insert. Not sure how that happened. It might be nice to have another crockpot. Would need to find space for it in my kitchen…
