Crock Pot!

One day while perusing various doll themed sites, I came across an idea that I fell in love with: a Crock Pot for my dolls. I am almost as in love with my Crock Pot as I am my Kitchen Aid mixer, I actually have 3 in different sizes that I use for cooking different things, and I would be willing to bet that at least once a week, something is cooked in one of them. I’ve even been known to have two going at the same time! It was a relatively easy project, I completed it in about an hour, give or take a few minutes. A nice project to work on while I watched golf, and yes, there was even something cooking in one too! 😉

Here’s my take on it:

I did make a few changes to the initial tutorial. I added 4 furniture buttons to the bottom to raise it up, all of mine have this. I also added a knob on the front for adjusting the temperature. And lastly, I made mine red. That was the most complicated part, the tutorial included a printing download, but it resulted in a gray crockpot, and I really had my heart set on red. So, I went directly to the Crock Pot website, copied their logo and then resized it and made it transparent for printing purposes. Yay! Printed it on red cardstock, and I was ready to go.

Now I just need to figure out what the girls can cook in it. Maybe hot dogs with sauerkraut? A chicken? I guess I need to get them some Crock Pot friendly groceries!

  1. Looks great! I like how you were able to make it red.

    I have a recipe for overnight oatmeal in the crock pot and another for a black forest cake (no frosting)

    • My sister did the cake in a crock pot, she said it turned out really well! I do applesauce, soups, meats-you name it. I’m going to try sloppy joes this week, I don’t know why I’ve never tried that before, duh.

      I don’t know why I had to make it red, just one of those things. I think it would be cute done with chevron paper too. So many possibilities with all the different scrapbook papers available.

  2. My ex-hubby was a crock pot kinda guy. He once made this stew he named “Shlumbumbi”. It never seemed to end! Every time it got low, he’d throw the leftovers into the crock pot and just kept adding more ingredients, and always different ones than before. Once he even added cinnamon! And crazy as it sounds, it actually tasted good! My mom used to do the crock pot thing too for awhile. Since she was confined to a wheelchair toward the end of her life, it was easy for her to make things in a crock pot rather than the stove. I’ve never cooked in a crock pot. I live alone, so I really don’t bother.

    • Sounds kind of like that bread that you keep adding things to! Since there are just the two of us, many of the recipes I make in the big one are things that can be frozen and reheated. I have an awesome spaghetti sauce recipe, because it makes so much I only have to cook it once every three meals.
