Cook Up Something Delicious in the 2nd Annual Crock-Pot Seasoning Mixes Slow Cookin' Recipe Contest {Crock-Pot Giveaway!}

Crock-Pot Seasoning Mixes logo
Although there are a wide variety of kitchen appliances available that claim to make life easier and more convenient, it's no secret that a large percentage of them end up simply taking up space in our cupboards or on our countertops.

One gadget that doesn't and has been an essential tool for cooking delicious meals for generations? The Crock-Pot, of course!

However, I'm sure that I'm not the only one that often looks at my Crock-Pot and wishes I had just a bit more inspiration to make something healthy and satisfying that the whole family will love, right? Fortunately, serving delicious food couldn't be much easier, as with just a few minutes of prep time, fresh meat and veggies, the rest is taken care of with Crock-Pot Seasoning Mixes!

Crock-Pot Seasoning Mixes

Expertly blended for optimum performance in the temperature and moisture ranges of slow cookers, Crock-Pot Seasoning Mixes turn your slow cooker meal from ordinary to extraordinary just by opening the package. Available in six flavors — Beef Stroganoff, Original Chili, Savory Herb Chicken, Hearty Beef Stew, Savory Pot Roast and BBQ Pulled Pork — it couldn't be much easier than just pouring one of these in and letting it do the work for you!

But as well as making your next meal plan easier, Crock-Pot Seasoning Mixes also wants to make life easier for one lucky contest winner in their 2nd Annual Crock-Pot Seasoning Mixes Slow Cookin' Recipe Contest.

Salleefur/Jesselyn/Jesster said...

One of all time favorites is an Italian White Bean, Sausage, Fennel and Escarole Soup we used to enjoy at a long gone restaurant and it took me a very long time to come with an almost exact version of it - which I have since made even better!

Success! But it was a real drag to make! I bet making it in a Crock Pot would be a real joy - and improve the taste even more!
