Recently, I have fallen into a bit of a rut preparing dinner— I think I’ve simply run out of ideas— and my kids are taking notice. I don’t own a crockpot, but it feels like the answer to all my problems. The fantasy that somehow, with a little work (emphasis on little), a hot dinner could be ready and waiting for us at 6pm is just too good to be true. Plus, during these winter months, I crave something warm and hearty at night, and a slow cooker delivers.
This week, we’re giving away a Belkin Connected Crock Pot for TWO lucky winners, and not only do they help you get dinner on the table, but they’re smart to boot— sync the slow cooker to the free WeMo app (Android or iPhone), and you can control it with an app from wherever you are. This is super-convenient if you get held up at work and need to shut it down before your dinner reduces to a thick paste— you can adjusting and monitoring the temperature and cooking time, or turn it off from anywhere.
I’ve also included some slow cooker recipes that look fantastic just below the giveaway widget to get you inspired, so scroll down to check those out too![highlight] Entry instructions are just below in the widget.
