    Just tweeted about this. Dang girl. You outdid yourself!! I love spin/arti dip and just made some this weekend! I told you about that though already. How SMART to do it in the slow cooker. Love the moody wood boards!

  2. Sheri says

    What would I make?.. 7 meals the first week… then at least 1 meal per week after that. That 1 meal a week would actually end up being two. Thankfully my hubby doesn’t mind leftovers, especially since I tend to put a twist on the leftover so it is not exactly the same as the original meal.

    Thanks for all the yummy recipes and the stories that go with them.

  3. says

    Haha, whyyy does it not come as any surprise that there was parmesan in this recipe, I wonder? Tsk tsk!
    Looks amazing though! And using the slow-cooker for dips is something I have never thought about before! I can imagine the flavours merge together even better than with just simmering over the hob. Great stuff! I have only ever used artichokes once (in a pea- and artichoke spread no less!) before and it gave this really nice, creamy texture!

    Ah, the weekend is just around the corner, perfect for dipping 😛 x

  4. Meg Hobbs says

    I love the idea of adding feta to the artichoke dip. This would be the first recipe I’d try in the crock pot. thanks for the giveaway.

  5. Faleen says

    I would try to replicate my sons recipe for Cholent. It is delicious and i think some of my neighbors would enjoy trying it. Thank you for this opportunity.

  6. Sharon @ Elizabeth & Co. says

    This dip looks delicious! And I would also try some pulled pork! … Love your recipes and beautiful photography!!

  7. says

    spinach & artichoke dip is one of my ABSOLUTE FAVORITES! i never would’ve thought to make it in the crock pot, though. that sounds amazing!

  8. Karen D says

    Soups, stews, chili, and after that, experiment with cooking bread (I’ve read about that and want to try), steamed puddings, dulce de leche!

  9. Danielle F says

    I would make this Spinach & Artichoke Dip! My 5 year old wants to try it & I have been looking for a recie for a good one. Making it in a slow cooker would be great! I have never heard of a slow cooker with a mixing option. That’s awesome!! Ty for the recipe & the chance to win the slow cooker :)

  10. Lynne says

    I would make a crowd pleasing Black Bean Dip. With this winter’s numerous cold weather storms hitting the East Coast the crock pot does a great job of keeping the dip at just the right temperature to warm guests. It is a perfect choice for tailgating, Super Bowl gatherings or even a group watching the Olympics from Sochi.

  11. Kristin S. says

    Omg! That looks amazing… I can’t wait to make my own spinach artichoke dip. And who knew you could get a slow cooker that could stir for you? I need one of those!

  12. Samantha says

    I am always looking for new dips to make and that looks delicious!! Love the stirring attachment. I would make this dip and I am always a fan of making chili or a soup in the crockpot.

  13. Cee says

    I haven’t even heard of this slow cooker…where have I been? I would definitely make your spinach and artichoke dip (it’s my favorite). I would love to own this ingenious Crock Pot!!

  14. Jeneille says

    I would totally make some soup, maybe even a nice clam chowder, in the crock pot. This winter is killing us in the south.

  15. Nadia Herrera says

    Of course I would make THIS recipe with a new Crockpot slow cooker, it looks delicious and I am a sucker for spinach dip. I would also make oatmeal, stews and roasts. Plus I believe a new Crockpot would be proper motivation to try slow cooker bread or cheesecake.

  16. Leah S says

    I love making soups in the slow cooker. It is so easy and convenient when I am gone all day and is so comforting on cold days like today!

  17. Calli says

    Seriously?! This sounds so good! Plus, who knew that CrockPot even made this kind?? I sure didn’t! How awesome would that feature be?!

  18. Cynthia Daniels says

    I would make Pulled Pork. It is my favorite thing to make in the crock pot since I have no imagination when trying new things in the crock pot. LOL

  19. Therese.A says

    The first thing I would make would be enchilada casserole – I can never make it now because it would overcook before I got home, but with this crockpot that switches to ‘warm’ when it’s done cooking, I could make it all the time now!

  20. Kaleena says

    I would make Haleem, this is a South Asian dish made with wheat, barley, yellow split peas, and other ingredients making it wholesome and perfect for this cold NYC weather. Thanks for the opportunity!

    • ydelle says

      I hope by the time I write this you have tried the making of oatmeal —steel cut is wonderful in a slow cooker and you can make it for the whole week.

  21. Sara says

    I would love to make some dips and even some chicken recipes with the stirrer. What a great way to have it ready before you take it out! It looks like an ice cream maker, how cool!

  22. Anne F says

    Oy vey!!! Such a loaded question…but, if you must tie me down to just one recipe, it’d be Crock Pot Slow Cooker Ribs. The stirring motion would keep the short ribs moving and not let them stick to the pot.

  23. Rose says

    Where do I start? I’ve got so many old favorites and a slew of new recipes to try that I found here and on Pinterest!

  24. Anne says

    The first thing I’d do is find a recipe for something that would be enhanced by stirring while in the slow cooker. Maybe some apple butter, or a big pot of caramelized onions, to start with.

  25. Brianna says

    Whaaaa??! I never heard of a crock pot that stirred itself before! I would LOVE that for Sundays with late church. I would definitely be making this dip, some chili, loaded baked potato soup…all of those things which CAN slow cook if someone is there to stir it once and a while!

  26. Karen Ostrom says

    wooohoooo how good a deal is that, and what a great deal and I’ve never heard of one with a stirrer. I hope I win then I can give my old one to one of my neighbors

  27. says

    This dip looks delicious!

    Would love to win this, my crockpot has started getting really hot, even when it is on low. I use my crock pot for so many things, love soups and meats cooked in the crock pot, and, it makes life so much easier.

  28. Susan Broughton says

    Your Spinach and artichoke dip would be great to try it out. Also I enjoy all kinds of soup and beans made in the slow cooker.

  29. says

    This sounds amazing!!! I think I might make a batch in the coming week and then freeze it for when the baby comes! :) If I won I would definitely make this recipe first!

    • Chung-Ah says

      Lindsay, you can barely taste the mayonnaise in this dip. It’s merely providing texture and a little bit of flavor.

  30. Michelle says

    What wouldn’t I make!? So stoked to finally see one that stirs so you don’t have to open it and lose heat or have foods “stick/burn” to the pot. I see more pasta and dip recipes in my future.

  31. Shawna says

    What wouldn’t I make??? I would definitely make this dip & a bunch of others I have pinned. I’m making this dip tonight in my regular crockpot.

  32. callie b. says

    what a fabulous giveaway! i swear i use my crockpot almost daily – which is why i am in desperate need for a new one! had mine for years! i would first start out by making this delicious dip! xo

  33. Dianne says

    We used our original Crock Pot for over 30 years. Just sold it on a yard sale – still works great – with plans to buy a larger one. Had no idea there is now a stirring Crock Pot….sounds wonderful! No more lifting the lid to stir and letting out the heat. I’d make this dip and more of our favorites… Vegetable beef soup, Irish stew, tortellini soup, roast beef, chicken, chili, broccoli cheese soup, eggplant caponata…LOVE a Crock Pot!!

  34. Kayla says

    I don’t know if I have a specific recipe, but I would make all the things I haven’t been able to because my slow cooker gets too hot! There are lots of recipes I have to avoid because I know it will be burnt by the time I get home. Honestly, I’d probably start with something like this dip!

  35. daisy says

    Well, the first thing I thought of making was this dip, and in reading through the comments, clearly that’s not an original thought! But after that, I would make some old-fashioned rice pudding, which I haven’t had for such a long time! Thank you for the chance to win this. It’s awesome!

  36. Alex says

    Well, first I would make this dip. Then i would probably make chili, since that is one of those foods that tastes better the longer you cook it!

  37. Vivian S says

    I am a HUGE spinach and artichoke dip lover so it will be my first thing to make for sure. Then, probably some stew dishes…yum!!

  38. Alayna K. says

    I would make a big pot of turkey chili with this fancy crockpot. My crockpot is pretty old so it isn’t even programmable. This iStir one would come in so handy for weeknight meals :)

  39. Renee says

    that crock pot is amazing! there are so many things I would make! chili, roast, oatmeal, desserts… but I HAVE to make that dip!

  40. ChrisH. says

    I would turn that pork roast in the back of my freezer into yummy pulled pork sandwiches! Have been wishing for a programmable crock pot for a while, so thanks for the chance to win one =D

  41. Charisse DeLima says

    Awesome! I did not know there was a self-stirring slow-cooker. Drinks, dips, stews and so much more could be made. I would so start with this dip but then experimenting would be so awesome to do. Thanks for the opportunity.

  42. Caitlyn E. says

    Oh my gosh what couldn’t I make with this crock pot? But, the first thing I would make? That super tasty recipe up there ^^^^ mmmmmm….I love spinach artichoke dip! What an awesome giveaway! Thank you!

  43. Jessie says

    I would try this dip! I think a self stirring slow cooker is an awesome idea! Slow cooker meals are some of my favorite because of the extra free time at the end of the day.

  44. Kate H. says

    I would make this dip for my next party, it looks delicious!!! I also use my crock pot to make kalua pork and chili.

  45. Marybel R. says

    Wow! A slow cooker that stirs. That’s awesome. What wouldn’t I make in this. Now that I work I have been using a slow cooker even more. I would use it for dips and soups and everything in between. This dip recipe looks amazing too. I can’t wait to do this for my sister’s baby shower.

  46. Tonya says

    I absolutely love crockpot recipes. I have an older model Crockpot and would love to have a new one. I would make so many recipes but first I would make Ground Turkey Queso! YUM!!!

  47. Heather Eason says

    The first thing I would make would probably be this yummy dip! Then I love to make soups & stews, oatmeal and DINNER!!! Thank you!

  48. Cathy says

    Just wanted to let you know I am sharing your wonderful recipe tomorrow in my Gluten-Free Recipe RoundUp with a link back to your original post!
    Have a terrific weekend!
    Cathy from

  49. Tammi Whittaker says

    Love your blog, just discovered it recently. Made this dip for our office Friday “breakfast” and was lucky that there was a smidge left to take home to my husband! Wonderful flavor and so easy to put together. Can’t wait to try more of your recipes!

  50. says

    Hello! I just fell upon your blog today and am very tempted to make this recipe. Everything on here looks delicious. I hope you don’t mind that I posted a link to this recipe on my own food blog, I would love to try it out one day… you’ve convinced me that I need to get myself a crock pot… Thanks again and I look forward to following your blog!

  51. says

    Hi, I wanted to let you know I made this to have with our Easter dinner yesterday and it was really delicious :) I used a regular crock pot, and ended up having to cook it on high since 2 hours on low wasn’t enough. Thanks for the recipe, it’s great to have something like this that doesn’t need the oven.

  52. Brenda says

    If i wanted to double this recipe, how long do you think it would need to cook for? Looks delicious! :)

  53. Michele P says

    Just made this dip. It was super easy. Tasted pretty good even before it cooked! I love the idea of it being crock pot recipe!

  54. Steve says

    We made this for a Thanksgiving appetizer. Followed the recipe exactly except we used fresh baby spinach. We also used a blender (before slow cooking) to make it into a creamy dip instead of a chunky one. It worked great on bread and pita chips. Big hit.

  55. dan says

    I made for Thanksgiving as well and it definitely was a hit! Doubled the recipe, crock pot was chock full, cranked it on high to get the rich, creamy ingredients to start cooking and then turned down. 2 hours plus later a delicious dish was ready to be devoured by all.

  56. Trina says

    this dip looks amazing!! Can’t wait to try it, any suggestions on replacing the mayo with something else? Maybe plain yogurt?

  57. kari says

    do you think if i were to make it the day before i want to serve it, i can just heat it up the next day in the microwave or oven?

    • Chungah says

      Kari, we’ve had the leftovers the next day and reheated it in the microwave. It wasn’t as good as the first day but we still loved it!

  58. Becky says

    I made 2 servings of this for a work Christmas party; those heathens ate it all within an hour! Can’t say I blame anyone as it was damn delicious when I made it again (and actually had a chance to eat some) on Christmas Eve at the in laws.

  59. Amanda says

    I am a beginner cook and I made your spinach and artichoke crockpot recipe. It was super easy to make. I even got brave and replaced the mayo w greek yogurt. It turned out super yummy!!! It was a hit at our family get together. Thank you so much!!

  60. ryan says

    Usually I make Chile Verde, or Texas Chile. I do need to try this spinach artichoke. It really sounds yummy. I love Crockpot cooking. Thank you .

  61. Tiffany says

    I’m a beginner cook getting myself acquainted to the kitchen and I just tried your spinach artichoke recipe, Amazing!
    Your pictures looked so good and I was starving so I used the stove to cook the dip faster. Also, I’m not a fan of feta (and there was none in the fridge) so I substituted it with monterey jack cheese instead and it turned out great. Thank you for the recipe and picture details, it really helps!

    • Payton says

      This is truly delicious! I made this for my family and they loved it! Definitely making more in the future!

  62. says

    I made this recipe for my girls birthday party and it was a hit! The flavors blend so well together and it was delicious! I served it with fresh bread and tortilla chips. Definitely a party must have!

  63. ydelle says

    sorry about the wrong email
    can you substitute Greek yogurt for mayo and sour cream? or lower fat versions of the two.
