12 Days of Christmas {Day 5: Crock On eCookbook}

Today is the 5th day of the 12 days of Christmas Reviews & Giveaways 2012!

On the 5th day of Christmas, day2day joys gave to me…

An awesome giveaway from my comical and frugal friend Stacy Makes Cents– the author of the new ecookbook Crock On.  This cookbook features 40 wholesome semi-whole foods recipes for your crockpots! Isn’t this the perfect time of year to make meals while you aren’t even home??

Like I mentioned above I’ve know Stacy for over a year now and we finally got to meet in real life a couple months ago. We even went to the same college but didn’t know each other at the time.

Anyhow, Cooking in the crockpot is something I love to do and it isn’t anything new for Stacy, about every Friday of the year she posts a crockpot recipe and I even had the chance to last year, I made Pumpkin Apple Butter… yum!

Stacy gave me a recipe form Crock On (the Upside Down Apple Pie) to review while she was making finally touches on this book and here’s what I had to say, which you can also see for yourself on page 44.
“I have a confession… I really like dessert, it’s no secret here but many people don’t know. So when Stacy asked me to review a recipe from her new book Crock On, I was delighted and ya know what, she gave me a dessert and I didn’t even ask for one. :) I have never ever cooked a dessert in the crock pot, didn’t even know you could do such a thing. The recipe used whole, real foods and is a healthier version of some store bought similar which are usually filled with a bunch of junk and I love trying to make healthier versions of everything. I don’t think you can go wrong adding Crock On to your cookbook collection… you’ll have plenty of dinners (and even delicious desserts) in no time a flash!”
