Keeping It Crockin' Cool Crock Pot Week {& a Giveaway!}

I might have a mild addiction to my Crock Pot.  I probably use it at least once a week... maybe even more. ;)
The slow cooker is my go-to cooking appliance no matter what time of the year it is.  It is perfect in the summer for making a little pulled pork while you and the family are spending the day hanging out pool side (and it keeps the kitchen cool- no oven required!).  It is fabulous in the cooler months for popping in a roast before taking the kids to school, and you know a delicious, hearty dinner will be waiting for everyone later after football practice or dance class is over. 

I have noticed a huge surge in readers finding my blog recently by Googling "summer crock pot recipes", and thought why not give the people what they are searching for then??
So, I gathered a few of my good food blogger gals to bring you all an entire week dedicated to honoring the ever useful, kitchen cooling, throw it in and forget it, all mighty Crock Pot. 
Be looking for new Crock Pot recipes from us all week and a few awesome slow cooker recipe round-ups posts brought to you by...

Julie from This Gal Cooks
Carrie from Frugal Foodie Mama
Paula from Call Me PMc

It wouldn't be a true celebration of all things Crock Pot if we weren't going to also give away a Crock Pot to one of you all...

But it is not just any Crock Pot... it is a 6 Quart Digital Programmable Stainless Steel Crock-Pot and comes with a 16 ounce Little Dipper Warmer- perfect for a sauce, gravy, or dip to go with that main dish you have been effortlessly slow cooking all day! 
And we are not stopping there, folks.  Oh nooooo... we are also throwing in the cookbook, Year-Round Slow Cooker: 100 Recipes For Every Season by Dina Cheney! :)

If you happen to be a blogger, we also have a linky going on below all week where you can link up your favorite slow cooker recipe posts!  :)  All four of us bloggers will be sharing the recipes you link up throughout the week on our Facebook pages and on our Pinterest boards.  Be sure to link up (it can get you an extra entry in the giveaway!), but keep it to just slow cooker recipes, folks!  We will be monitoring the links every day and deleting those that are not for the Crock Pot. ;)
