I thought I would take some time out from Crock Potting to give a few morsels of information. Let me first start by thanking each and every one of you for your overwhelming support during my adventure! As of right now, I have an amazing 52 followers and 1,905 pageviews!! I know I have many silent followers as well, as I have been getting compliments all around. I have been viewed in 9 countries: United States (of course), Canada, Russia, United Kingdom, Kenya, Mexico, Malaysia, Germany and Spain...how exciting! I never dreamed I would be viewed from across the globe.
And speaking of my followers...many of you have asked if there is a way to get my new post updates by email. Ask, and you shall receive, maybe. I have added a new feature to my blog. In the upper right hand corner above the followers list, there is a new link titled "Subscribe to The Crock Pot Challenge by email". Simply click on the link and input your email address. You will be sent a confirmation email to that address. Open this email and click on the link. That's it! Hopefully this will work, as I can't sign up for it myself and am just experimenting. If you do choose to sign up for this, please leave a comment below and let me know how it is working out. If it isn't working, I will take it away.
Lastly, I would like to thank Lydia for being so thoughtful and bringing me a box of a helpful product she found. Check out the pic above of the slow cooker liners. My friend Robin, of "Random Kitchen Adventures with Robin" fame (check out her blog too!), first told me about these, but I hadn't gotten around to picking them up yet. These are designed to fit into slow cookers up to 6.5 quarts. Think your dish will be pretty tough to scrub out? Simply line your pot with this and your clean up will be a snap. I am trying it out with this week's recipe so I will let you know I think. I am sure for recipes like the Fruit Cobbler this will be a life saver!!
I hope everyone is having as much fun with this blog as I am and I hope you continue cooking with me!
