This time last year, I was celebrating 3,000 Facebook Fans with a giveaway!  That means, we have gained more than 7,000 Facebook fans in 1 year!  Can you believe it?!  I think it's amazing!  I want to thank each and every one of you for for all of your support, "likes," comments, shares, and so much more!

To kick of the Celebration, we recently got a MAKEOVER!!!!!!!  I couldn't think of a better time to "dress up" the site!  I'm so excited to be sharing it with 10,000 of you!

To celebrate YOU, my facebook fans, MANY businesses that support "A Busy Mom's Slow Cooker Adventures" have come together to offer you PRIZES!!!!!  It's easy to enter!

RULE #1:  You HAVE to be A Busy Mom's Slow Cooker Adventures Facebook fan!

You do NOT have to do ALL of the steps on the Rafflecopter Widget below.  The first 26 are required because our vendors were generous enough to donate items, so we can be generous enough to like/visit their pages.  All of the steps after that are OPTIONAL and will say "optional" in front of them.  Don't try to like all the facebook pages in one day, or facebook will think you are spamming and block you from liking/commenting for a few days!

  1. Oh No! The link for Amy Fleischmann's Thirty-One group on FB is not working.

    1. I'm aware of the problem. I'm trying to solve it, but rafflecopter is not cooperating. :( You can get to her page from the link above her picture and join her group that way for now. :)

    2. Thanks for being so fast!

  2. So, we're required to join several 31 groups to enter?

    1. Yes, Kelly because there are several different 31 vendors.

  3. LOVE sweet and tangy pulled chicken, it is a Thursday family night favorite!!!

  4. This is an awesome giveaway! Tons of great prizes to be had. I love your blog. I always come here to look for slow cooker recipes when I have ingredients and don't know what to do with them.

  5. The the enchilada casserole. Quick and easy. Put it in before church and its ready after service. Thanks, Jessica M.

  6. OK, I'm slow today! I've liked or joined all #28 vendors ... I don't see a rafflecopter anywhere??

    1. The large thing above with all the links and countdown and tells you the number of entries to do, etc. is the rafflecopter

  7. I'm crazy. I'm sure of it. I don't see it. I can see it on your older post, the back to school one.

  8. Got it! Our family's favorite recipe is the apple and onion pork tenderloin.

  9. From the 31's I love the Cupcake Zipper Pouch.

    Salsa Ranch Chicken with Black Beans, sounds awesome.
    We love stuff like this, and we can never get enough ranch!

  10. I'm not seeing the rafflecopter? Am I missing something? I've liked and/or joined all vendors. Is there anything else that has to be done?

    1. Ignore my comment, got it figured out! Thanks!

  11. I made the Zucchini Chocolate Chip bars...definitely forgot the baking soda, so the texture was all sorts of wrong, but they tasted great! LOL!!

  12. Love the raffles good luck to all

  13. I would love to order the Large utility Tote in Black Happy Dot design from Sarah Broderick's Thirty-One Gifts website.


    1. Here's the direct link to the item from Sarah Broderick's site:

  14. If I won, I would get the Icon Coin Purse
    Fish Icon Coin Purse from Stacy Kraus' Thirty-One Website

  15. I would love to try your Chicken and Gnocci Stew recipe. I've never eaten Gnocci before :)


  16. Hi Hope! So I started following you after we met over the summer, I was intrigued at what you are doing here. I have always wanted a slow cooker, there was just no space to store it in our tiny little home :( But with the purchase of our new place, I have been researching and will be acquiring a slow cooker of my very own in our new HUGE kitchen (22 cupboards, eek!!) I too am a busy mom and can't wait to try your mac and cheese, we love cheese in our house :)

  17. I am looking forward to making the zucchini bars with the zucchini from the garden : )

  18. Great contest, Hope! Love the prizes! Your blog is awesome and has saved me so much time, given me great guidance for dinner and allowed our family to try new things.

    There are so many things I would love to get from Thirty-one! Nice to see so many consultants. I would love the About Town Blanket, the Pop Crossover purse, Fold N Go Organizer with Notepad, etc. Seriously, I could probably list more than 31 things!

  19. So far my favorite has been the White Lasagna it was sooo yummy! I also loved the Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cookie Bars. I love trying out these recipes because they make my life so much easier and more delicious.

  20. We LOVE the french dip recipe! So good!

  21. SO do we have to enter ALL the vendors sweeps, or just those that interest us? I do not have little ones in the house so it makes no sense to enter those.

    1. Yes, you have to like ALL the vendors. Those are the only required entries. When I go to choose winners, it will be done randomly for all the prizes. I will not be looking to see which people wanted which prizes. It's impossible to do that. So, if you would like to enter, please do. You may not win the prize you want, or even a prize you can use. That's just the luck of the draw.

  22. I haven't found a recipe I didn't like. I'm a big fan of everything Mexican. But...we LOVE the buffalo pasta recipe. :)

  23. I would like to try Easy Italian Chicken

    beckymarie621 at gmail dot com

  24. Good luck everybody!

  25. I can't wait to try the barbeque chicken recipe!

  26. Excited about all the fun prizes. Trying to figure out what I would do with each one if I happened to win one of them. Some I would keep, but a lot of them would be great gifts!!

  27. BBQ Chicken thighs is a favorite of ours.

  28. Congrats on the 10,000 Facebook fans!!! Well 10,245 right now :)! Thanks for the Awesome giveaway!!!

    1. Oops forgot to put that my favorite recipe is the Creamy Onion and Ranch Chicken! Love it!!!

  29. I love the white chicken chili in the crock!

  30. I love all the recipes I have made. The spinach and feta meatloaf was awesome!

  31. I'm a new fan - I can't wait to try your recipes. I have my eye on trying the baby food for my 5 mo. old soon!

  32. This is an awesome website, thank for putting this contest together!
