Make it Fast, Cook it Slow!

Way back in the day, I featured a gal I found to be cute, funny and NUTS for taking on the task of cooking everyday in her crockpot for 365 days. You can read the original feature here.  She named her blog A year of Slow Cooking.  She set out to use her crockpot daily…..for one year.  C.R.A.Z. Y.

Soon after the birth of this idea, her blog gained all kinds of attention from the media.

She was so grateful for being featured and would never forget to mention Today’s Creative Blog for featuring her shortly after she started her crazy venture. 

After being interviewed numerous times for several newspapers, and a guest spot on the Rachel Ray show……she now has a book!  Her very own cook book!  I am so thrilled for her! 

Today my son walks in with this package from Amazon. IMG_5053 I start racking my brain trying to remember what I ordered……

I was so thrilled when I opened it, I let out a little squeal that surprised my son and dog.  IMG_5051

It’s GORGEOUS!  She should be so proud of herself! 

Thank you Stephanie for never forgetting me and for sending me one of your books!  This is my brush with fame for sure.

You can buy her book here.

I love my slow cooker and I use it more than a few times a week. Now that it is cooling off I will be using it more. What a sweet gift you were given. Stephanie is such an amazing person.
