CRESTVIEW — Trying quickly to prepare one of her husband’s favorite meals has won a local woman free groceries for a year, $500 in Crock-Pot Seasoning Mixes and bragging rights for when her friends pop over to sample her culinary creations.

Sherri Williams decided to modify her recipe for the braised short ribs her husband, Roy, enjoys. Since she was using one of the Crock-Pot Seasoning Mixes in a slow cooker, she entered the company’s cooking contest.

“I had a basic recipe in mind, but I used their Crock-Pot seasoning and it actually came out better than mine,” she said

She entered the Crockin’ in the USA Contest — which she learned about on Facebook — and won.

“Sherri was one of hundreds of entrants who took up the challenge to create a delicious, easy meal for her family with one of the new Crock-Pot Seasoning Mixes,” Crock-Pot spokesperson Megan Carroll stated in an email. “Sherri’s recipe … had the judges asking for seconds!”
