What I'm loving Wednesday: Create-A-Crock Edition

Instead of focusing on a lot of things I love {because there are a lot} I decide to focus on one specific thing I recently found!

Without a Crock Pot some days there may be no dinner.

If you read my Sunday Social post from this past Sunday, you may have noticed the answer to my last question...

"Share one of your favorite recipes and the story behind it.
This is actually really tough. Over the last few years, especially this year, I have really expanded my cooking. J and I also have been eating a lot cleaner. Before this, I rarely cooked and when I did it usually didn't taste too great. After using the Crock Pot, my meals started turning out much better. It's pretty difficult to mess up a CP meal (and trust me I could do it). So if there is a recipe that involves the CP, then it's probably one of my favorites because when I cooked in my CP, dinner actually tasted good! Thank you Crock Pot for boosting my cooking confidence!!"

Seriously. Cooking with the Crock Pot really did boost my cooking confidence. I cook so much more both with and without it. I've cooked more this summer than in my whole life...not a joke. 

Recently, we lost the lid to our Crock Pot. I wish I knew how but it literally disappeared. I've torn the kitchen apart and still cannot find it. {No worries, aluminum foil is acting as the lid for now.} So that made me thinking about getting a new one. The one we have is great for just me and J, however when I want to make a big pot of chili or have the family over for dinner it doesn't really hold much. I told J last week that for my birthday I really want a nice Crock Pot.

Yes, I am asking for an appliance for my birthday...and some Tory Burch shoes, so it evens out.

Anyways, when thinking about what kind of Crock Pot I wanted I knew I wanted one that had a timer that I could control, held a meal for 6-8 people, was safe, had a lock on top if possible, and one that was pretty would be especially nice.

As I was searching the, I came across the coolest thing e.v.e.r.
You can design your own Crock Pot!! 

Don't all jump up and down at once.

I'm still trying to figure out if I can just get a solid color pink Crock Pot instead of one with pictures. Since it's just J and I think it would be silly to have pictures of just us...or Oliver and Wembley since they don't eat Crock Pot food. I'll let ya know what I figure out.

So if you're in the neighborhood for a new Crock Pot and you want to even design your own with a little family flare, then you definitely need to check out Create-A-Crock!

I was not asked or given any compensation to write this post. I seriously think it is the coolest thing ever and I love my Crock Pot!


  1. That is cool..
    Too bad I haven't used the one I have yet :)

  2. I want a custom crock pot! Oh the possibilities.

  3. I didn't know they did such a thing. That may need to be my new crockpot when ours gives out. I just bought a little lunch one yesterday. I'm hoping it will get use this year since I don't have an actual classroom.

  4. This is the coolest thing ever! I also need a new crock pot because mine is just big enough to cook meals for two people. This is so going on my Christmas list!

  5. So, cool!! I saw this in a magazine and totally forgot to check it out on their website. I definitely want to create my own cute Crock Pot!

  6. I have got to check this out I need a fun new one!

  7. i just bought a crock pot yesterday. darn it!!! oh we,, the thing is still magic!

    Have a wonderful day! Stop by and say hello! :)

  8. Thanks for playing along!

    Is it crazy that we don't own a Crock Pot?!

  9. Love the crock pot as well :)
