    I’m unable to print the caller board on your Thanksgiving bingo…I printed the players boards. This is such a cute idea and can’t wait to play it with my grandchildren… thanks.

    I just bought your magazine of slow cooker soups and stews as the recipes look great and I love using the crock pot in the colder months. I would like to see the nutritional value of each item and it is not included in your recipes. Are most of your recipes healthy and lower calories? I notice that you do use turkey and lower fat meats for many of your recipes. Maybe you would consider adding this information in your future publications! Thanks!

      Thanks so much for your support and for your question, Vickie. I’ll definitely consider adding nutritional info in the future magazines. Thank you! Jenn

    Wow, you’ve made very good choices in life…good for you. I’m 68 as of last December and am beginning my cooking at home gig. I need a recommendation as to which crock-pot to buy. I do not want one so small I need to cut in two any recipes, nor do I want one so big I need forklift to move it around.
    So what say you?
    Thanks, and you sure are a knock out babe!

    March 6,2016: I just purchased your Slow Cooker Book..5 Ingredient Favorites. I’m not a cook and this book looks great. I have a question: on page 33 there is a picture of a Simple Breakfast Casserole which looks delicious. But it’s browned on top and around the sides and on the bottom and I didn’t think a slow cooker could do this. Did you put it in the oven at some point to get it to be so crusty? Thanks. florian

      Hi! Thanks for purchasing my cook book. I’m glad you like it! Yes, you can easily brown a casserole in the oven after slow cooking. Just check your manufacturer’s instructions to make sure your slow cooker insert is oven-safe. I usually don’t do that step, but if I’m having company over, I might since it looks so nice. Thanks for the question and Happy Crocking! – Jenn
