Special Month of Christmas Give-Aways - Cuisinart 3-in-1 Cooker!

Cuisinart sent me one of their 3-In-1 Cook Centrals so I could try it out and they are making another available for me to give away in my Month of Special Christmas Give-Aways! So, today I want to tell you about the Cuisinart 3-In-1 Cook Central and what I'm doing with it today!

This cooker allows you to brown the meat your are cooking before you switch to the slow-cook setting, so you can do it all with one cooker making it easier to cook and easier to clean up! I love how light-weight the cooker is and how it allows me to set the time based on my schedule and recipe! Easy to use, easy to clean and makes amazing food - what could be better???!!! 

My daughter-in-law developed an allergy to milk during her last pregnancy, so when I have her over for dinner, I want to be sure to fix something she can enjoy. My son, daughter-in-law and sweet grandsons are coming over for dinner tonight, so I'm fixing a roast in my 3-in-1 cooker! Typically I'd brown the roast in butter before switching it to the slow-cook mode, but since Jackie can't have butter, I'm browning it in olive oil instead. I'll add herbs, onions, apples and carrots and let it cook all day! When I make the gravy, again, instead of using butter, I'll use more olive oil. 

I'm also baking a butternut squash and will make rolls with the mashed squash - you'll find the recipe at this link, but I'll substitute coconut oil for the butter. For desert I'm making pumpkin pie - I'll substitute coconut oil for the butter in the pie crust and almond milk for the milk in the pumpkin filling! It will be dairy-free and delicious!

With the roast, rolls and pie cooking all day and throughout the day, my house is going to have the most enjoyable aroma!!!

I love the Cuisinart 3-In-1 Cook Central and am so happy to be able to give one away!(USA only) If you are 18 and older and would like to be in the drawing for the Cuisinart 3-In-1 Cook Central, which will be on December 1, 2013, please comment below to let me know if you have followed on Google+, Google Friend Connect, followed by liking on facebook with the tab at this link (not just liking the post) and/or have followed grandma's cookie jar by email.
