Hello, friends! It’s been a while since I last hosted a giveaway. How do I know? Recently, a bunch of people have been entering my old giveaways…from 2012.
That tells me three things:
- I’ve got some new readers!
- The new folks love giveaways as much as my loyal Nomsters.
- Reading comprehension tends to go out the window when free stuff is involved.
Anyway, I got the hint, and have been hard at work lining up some fantabulous giveaways. Really—you won’t be disappointed.
Up for grabs this week: my favorite slow cooker!
I gave one away last year, but this model—the Hamilton Beach Set & Forget 6 Quart Programmable Slow Cooker—is even better. Plus, it includes a super-groovy 2-cup warmer/thermos thingy.
And that’s not all: thanks to the generous folks at Hamilton Beach, THREE lucky winners will each receive this butt-kicking prize!
I don’t have to tell you how much I love slow cookers. This cheap, no-frills countertop appliance offers an easy way to cook food at a low, steady temperature for hours. There’s no need to babysit the pot—just set it and forget about it.
And believe me: slow cookers aren’t just for cold weather cooking. With a slow cooker, you can whip up delicious meals while you’re out enjoying the sun with your loved ones. Bonus: unlike an oven, your slow cooker won’t raise the temperature in your home to sweltering levels.
After working a long night shift, I like to chuck the components of a hearty stew into my slow cooker before conking out.
Eight hours later, I wake to the intoxicating aroma of a delicious, ready-made meal. My family gets a home-cooked supper, and I get to sleep in.
Best of all, the slow cooker’s low temperature and prolonged simmering helps to break down the collagen in meat; as a result, even tough cuts end up perfectly tenderized.
