Shopping online for your next Crock-Pot? Wanna put some money BACK in your wallet?

So you have maybe decided that it is time to find a replacement part for your trusty kitchen Crock-Pot or even that it is time to ‘bite the bullet’, so to speak, and go out and buy a brand new Crock-Pot. At this point you are weighing your options and looking for a good deal on your next purchase. If you have found a great deal for what you want online and are considering pulling the trigger on an online purchase (maybe at CROCKPOT.COM), then consider making your purchase through FATWALLET . COM. Fat Wallet is a cash-back shopping site (probably one of if not the biggest cash-back site online) which rewards you with cash back from  a long list of online retailers.  You just go to fatwallet.com, sign in and follow their link to whichever retailer you are about to shop at to get money back on any purchase you end up making there.  These days, anytime I am shopping online – whether it is shopping for household items, electronics or clothing, etc. – I make sure to check the Fat Wallet site first to see if that retailer is offering cash back through them before making any purchase. When it comes to travel, I always visit Fat Wallet before booking my trips at sites like Priceline, Hot Wire, Trivago or Expedia so that I get some money back from those sites.

Anyway, the last time I looked, fatwallet was offering 5% cash back for any purchase made at crockpot.com, so why not sign up at fat wallet (its free and easy) and get a little money back in your wallet?

Going International with your trusty Crock Pot!

Slow Cook Your Way Around the World with Your Trusty Kitchen Crock Pot

Here is another fun idea from my Wife that almost any crock pot user can handle: An international crock pot challenge! This is a way to make your slow cooker meals even more interesting and varied. Start off by looking up some Rival crock pot recipes from different countries and then plan to make a different one each week or maybe even a new recipe every few days if you find yourself really starting to have fun with the idea. There are at least a couple of ways that you can have some fun with this. One idea is to get into the habit of using a recipe from a different country or region each week, for example, you could make one week Italian week, the next week Spanish week, and so on. This lets you work your way through the cuisines of different countries at a faster pace. A different approach would be to dedicate each month to a different region, so that one month might be Italian month and another might be dedicated to the recipes of Germany. This gives you the chance to work your way through a number of recipes for each region that you choose.

Either way, your family will benefit by enjoying a culinary trip around the world at your own dinner table.


 Travel Around the World – Without Leaving Your Kitchen

If you are looking for something fun and different to bring new life to your slow cooked meals then here is an idea that anyone can try that will let you travel around the world – through your kitchen!

It is called the International Rival Crock Pot challenge and it involves choosing a slow cooker recipe from a different region of the World each week. Of course, just because you will be choosing recipes from around the world, that does not mean that they have to be any more difficult to prepare; there are many ‘international’ crock pot recipes out there that are still easy crock pot recipes. For example, one week you can start off with some slow cooker Tandori chicken from India and then follow it up the next week with a traditional German recipe for ham hocks and sauerkraut prepared a la your crock pot. Perhaps a crock pot lazy Italian lasagne would suit your fancy one week? You could then switch things up with a crock pot Spanish rice recipe the next. With the world as your cook book there is bound to be no shortage of fun and easy ideas for your kitchen’s crock pot.

Add Some New Life to a Crock Pot Potluck Party

I am back with another Crock pot meal idea from my Wife. This time around, she has given me some suggestions on how to use your trusty rival slow cooker to make the meal for your group get together a tad more interesting.

Are you thinking about having a crock pot get-together or potluck party? This is an amazing way to bring some real variety to a regular, boring potluck gathering. Here is an example for you. Recently, one of my college classes planned a potluck feast and it ended up being a terrific get together. Some members of the class all came to the school around eight o’clock in the morning and set up their Rival crock pots. Soon after, the rest of my classmates showed up and started sorting the crock pot ingredients that each of them had brought and the various meats and vegetables were thrown into the waiting slow cookers. Some people had brought their little fondue crockpots so they plugged them in later. We didn’t need to worry if the food was refridgerated or not because it was cooking while we were learning. By the time our lumch hour had rolled around, we all had an appetite and our crock pot meals were all finished cooking and ready to be served out! It was a great experience and I would certainly recommend it to anyone.
