GIVEAWAY: Slow Cooker Revolution


Since becoming moms both Jaime and I have become crock-pot enthusiasts. We’ve both found some amazing recipes, but you do have to sift through the tuna casseroles and cream of mushroom chickens (not that there’s anything wrong with that) to find the treasures. So imagine our jump-for-joy, sing-from-the-mountain-top, dance-in-the-rain euphoria when Slow Cooker Revolution from the Editors at America’s Test Kitchen arrived on our doorstep. CROCK-POT + ATK = YES PLEASE. And is that lasagna on the cover? Wait, what? Lasagna in the slow cooker? Tell us more. So you’re thinking… good for you, you have a new cookbook, but what’s in it for me? Well not only are the folks at ATK culinary geniuses but they also super nice and so we have a copy of Slow Cooker Revolution to give away to a lucky reader. Find out more…


Leave your comment anytime between now and midnight next Tuesday, March 22nd. We will randomly select a winner (with a US address, No P.O. Boxes) and announce next week.

Tell us what you like to make in the slow cooker. For additional entries every day, Stumble, Tweet and Facebook “Like” this giveaway. Leave an extra comment for each.

And in case you are wondering, I rock the Hamilton Beach Stay or Go and Jaime has “Some crap one with two settings ‘really hot’ and ‘really f*ing hot'” Ha, nice. Now I know what to get Jaime for Mother’s Day.

Thanks for the great giveaway! I have a crock pot that I've only used for one thing. Pinto beans a la my grandmother's recipe. I would love to learn more recipes so I could use it more often. πŸ™‚

definitely chili! our friend hosts a chili cookoff every year, and there will be 15-20 crock pots crowding his dining room table (with extension cords and surge protectors winding in between). One year I know we are going to blow a fuse!

I have always like the crock pot idea, but I am only inspired by cookbooks with pictures. (Ha! Now you know my weakness!)I haven't come across any crock pot cookbooks with pictures before, and most have had crazy organization which is not easy to sift through. I am really excited that you have shared this book…I would love to win it!

We also make pulled pork in the crockpot, and usually make sandwhiches out of it but recently I added taco seasoning and made it taste like barbacoa and made tacos. It was really great! I would love this cookbook, because 1. I love ATK and 2. because I would like to the crock pot more but never know where to find a good recipe. This would solve my problem for sure!

Broccoli & 3 Cheese soup is one of my favorite dishes to make in my crockpot. This cookbook sounds great, I'm always looking for new things to make in my crockpot (other than the standard pulled pork, soups, stews, etc) so I'd love to see what new ideas ATK comes up with!

My husband is not a big fan of the crockpot, so I don't use it much. But I know that would all change if I actually had some good recipes to cook in it! I do like to make big batches of vegetarian chili in it though. πŸ™‚

LOVE my crock pot! My little guys love pork roast in the pot, delicious! But I also love our chili….Mmmm! And then there's our slow cooked spaghetti sauce in the pot…all day torture, but SO worth it!

Tristin @ Two Girls Being Crafty

To tell you the truth, I mostly use the crockpot to keep things warm, like cider or chili. Only on rare occasions do I make an actual dinner in the crockpot 'cause so much of it turns into just mushy stuff. And I seriously dislike any recipe that has "cream of this or that" soup. Sorry to sound so snobby… but I would DEF buy an ATK crockpot cookbook because they always do things the "right" way! I believe ATK could make a crockpot convert of me…

Oh, but I DO make corned beef on St. Patty's Day every year… and I use the crockpot to get it nice and tender! So, yeah… I use it.

Pulled pork, pot roast (which later turns into shredded beef for tacos,etc.) chili, enchiladas, bean dishes….and one of the best things about it is that it makes your house smell so good all day (which makes me HUNGRY all day, I guess that's not so good!). πŸ™‚

I love slow cookers for chicken dishes. Because chicken is that one meat product that can be so sensitive to the time it's out and when it's cooked, I like leaving it in the slow cooker for tacos or burritos later. That way the chicken it cooked through, it's safe and it falls apart easily. Love chicken with corn and salsa, a little brown sugar and dijon mustard.

It is ridiculously easy…just put 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts and 3/4 of a 17 oz bottle of buffalo sauce in the slow cooker and cook on low for 6-7 hours.

I love to cook a whole chicken in my crockpot, then shred the meat for salads, tacos, bbq sandwiches, and because it is so tender, it makes for great toddler finger food!

Then I take it a step further… after removing the skin and meat from the chicken, I put the carcass back in the crock pot, add a chopped carrot and celery stalk, a chopped onion or half if I have one, plus two quarts of water. Cook on low for 6-8 hours, and I have PERFECT chicken stock! The only thing I didn't use from that bird was the feathers!

I am a long time working mom who uses her crock pot weekly at least. For a really good inexpensive meal try turkey legs with your choice of spices/herbs cooked all day – fall off the bone tender. BBQ ribs – cook ribs all day, remove from crock, slather with BBQ and broil for 5-10 min. Any soup, any roast. I have found the secret is not to use too much liquid. Frozen meat is great without liquid – juices form during cooking. Now I am sure ATK would teach me the better way to use my crock pot – but need a new one since the little rubber legs have melted away on mine! Are you going to include a crock pot as part of the give away??? πŸ™‚

My very favorite thing to make in my slow cooker is vegetarian lasagna. People usually cringe when I tell them what I'm making for their visit, but when they ask for seconds and thirds, I slam their prior cringe with my stone cold fists of glory.

I've been the crock pot queen lately after my daughter was born 10 weeks ago! I'm usually surfing the web finding recipes…so I would LOVE this book to have a one stop place for new recipes. My favorite thing lately is the crock pot enchiladas I made the other day..I've heard you can make desserts too…I can't wait to win this.

Oh my goodness! I am on a quest to use my crockpot more. I've only used it twice (outside of keeping chili or cheese dip warm at parties). The first time I made pulled chicken and the second time was taco soup. This cookbook would be so handy!!

Oh god bless the slow cooker. I love making any sort of shredded chicken dish. I just love shredding the chicken after taking it out of the crock pot and it being so amazingly moist and tender.

My favorite crock pot recipe is chicken tortilla soup, there is nothing that is as comforting on a cold day πŸ™‚

I recently had a soup party with my a group of neighbors. I had four different crock pots going with different homemade soups. It was a fun night. So, I do use mine for soups, but would love to learn about other recipes!
Just found your blog and LoVe it!

I haven't perfected very many recipes, but I have invested in a good cooker! I love to make Red Beans -Louisiana style in my cooker. Hubby is from New Orleans and they are a staple around our house…the cooker helps keep them tasty and offers the patience to get them so soft!!

I LOVE my Crock Pot!! I use it for chili, soups, pulled pork, roasts (turkey, beef & pork), a dish my late mother in law made called Swiss steak, beef stew, Pinto beans…I even used it to make our turkey breast for Thanksgiving…I use it at least once a week!

Oh my gosh, we use our slow cooker as much as 5 times a week. We are a commuter family and i don't like to sacrifice my family's health over fast food. Not only do we get home cooked meals every day, we don't have to wait for more time to prepare it, we just drive in the garage, wash up, set the table and have a good meal and good time going over our days with the family. Thank God for slow cookers!!!!!

I would love this… I don't make very much accept chili and maybe some southern and mexican dishes but since I'll be going back to school in the fall this would be wonderful to have!

I love my slow cooker!! I'll try any recipe in it, even dessert! My favorite, most simple recipe that I make often is "country fried chops." Comes out perfect every time. So easy, so good!

We love Slow Cooker Sundays — our favorite lately has been making overnight steel cut oats in the slow cooker for a week full of wonderful breakfast. We usually make it plain and then add various toppings to mix it up throughout the week πŸ™‚

Great giveaway!

I LOVE this site. I have 2 boys – 4 and 2. I made my 2 yr old son a bow tie for my brother's wedding last weekend based on your step by step instructions! It turned out perfect! Now you hit me with a Slow Cooker recipe book the day after I just planted a bunch of new veggies and fruits. I need ideas! I am trying to get our family eating healthier than sandwiches and chips all the time. Slow Cooker is my easiest way. I have a full time job and rarely have time to make a nice meal during the week. If nothing else, thanks for the mention of the book. I love cookbooks with lots of pictures to see if it will look pleasing to my boys (and me) when it is done! Thanks for posting!!!

We make kalua pork ( Hawaiian pulled pork) in ours. I can't wait to see what the folks from ATK have included.

I have a few that I like, particularly a creamy chicken chowder that's great for winter nights! And I also have a turkey sausage tortellini stew that's mind-numbingly easy to make. When September comes around and I go back to teaching, the crock pot comes out with a vengeance!

Chicken tortilla soup is our fave!!!! Top with avacado, tortilla strips and cheese! Yum!

We also cheat a chicken parmigan by placing chicken breasts in tomato sauce and cooking for four hours. Turn the CP to warm and cook spagetti. Top chicken with Italian cheeses and let it melt while the pasta cooks…Perfect Italian yumminess without the effort.

I don't use mine too much, but I want to. There are too many bad recipes out there for crocks so I've had a hard time finding ones that I really like. Would love to have this to find some keepers!

I think the only thing I've made in my crock pot is barbecued beef. That's why I'd like this cook book!
