Slow Cooking 101 Video Series and Ninja Cooking System Give Away!



I had the happy experience of being filmed in February for a new (to me) video channel, Grokker.

The first video will go "live" today! (April 20!).

Grok means to understand fully -- it wasn't a term I was familiar with until Grokker reached out to me.

Grokker is the online destination for “The Best of The Best” in cooking, yoga, and fitness videos with lifestyle experts.

And I got to be The Slow Cooker Lady!



Grokker is subscription based, similar to Netflix or Hulu. They do have an app for mobile devices, and the goal is to have a portal through a television device like Roku or Apple TV, soon.

I spent two days filming six short slow cooker videos. 

The kitchen we used was rented through Air B n B and they had an Uber car pick me up.

I've never ever used Air B n B or Uber before. And the producer and camera people were young Silicon Valley techies.

I felt like a dinosaur.

BUT! I had fun. And I really like being able to share slow cooker tips, tricks, and recipes with you.

I hope you enjoy the videos!


I'm still madly in love with the Ninja, and they were kind enough to supply 7 cooking systems for the shoot.

I have one, still in the box, and would like to give it away this week.

Good luck to all; I’ll be announcing the winner on May 7!!

What they say about this article

  1. Gotta tell you I saw your stuff on the Ninja several years ago and I loved it. I bought one and it's been in use nearly every week in our house. Braise the chops, throw in the goodies and let it go. A bunch of chili dogs for poker night, simmer away. It is an awesome piece of my kitchen.

  2. I registered with Grokker and hope that got me entered. I couldn't see anything specifically that said "YOU are entered."

    Thanks for all the recipes! Fingers crossed that I am your Ninja winner! :)
