Senior Health can be Improved with Meals from a Crockpot

COLLINGDALE, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, November 15, 2018 / — There is something wonderful about approaching your front door, key in hand, after a long day, and catching a whiff of the inviting aroma of a home-cooked meal emanating from a distant nook of the house. Before you even take the first bite of food, the senses feast on the bounty, savoring the textures, scents, and visual appeal of the simmering foods.

Naturally, seniors enjoy the multi-sensory perks of eating at home; however, for many, it can be tiresome and difficult to acquire the ingredients that are needed to create a home-cooked masterpiece, and then to prepare the foods by chopping and cutting before the actual cooking takes place.

Crockpot creations can be a good solution for many. For one, crock pot meals usually require much less prep time and involve fewer steps; therefore, seniors who tire easily or have issues with mobility encounter fewer dilemmas. Secondly, leftovers, which are a frequent occurrence with this type of meal, help seniors reserve even more energy and defer the costs and transportation requirements involved with grocery shopping.

The following are five easy, healthy crockpot meals that we like for seniors:

Slow-Cooker, Apple Cinnamon, Steel-Cut Oatmeal

High in fiber and complex carbohydrates, steel cut oats are quite beneficial to seniors, reducing cholesterol and blood pressure while also preventing heart disease. This delicious meal is plentiful, and when made for one or two people can provide generous servings for several days.

Chicken Pot Pie Soup

Dripping with savory sauces, the vegetables add texture to this meal, but do not overtake the flavor. Served with a warm dinner roll or biscuit, this is sure to please even the most finicky eater.

Visit Creme de la Crumb for the recipe.

Mac and 3-Cheese

Everyone's favorite comfort food is bursting with flavor when served creamy and cheesy. As a side dish or as an entree, this variation will fill you with goodness.

Junior’s gone vegan, Aunt Sue's gluten-free, & Grandma’s off dairy. What’s a Thanksgiving hostess to do?

Discover New Recipes, Tips, and Techniques to Serve Up
Maximum Yum with Minimum Fuss from

NEW YORK, NY – NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, November 12, 2018 / — Junior’s gone vegan, Aunt Suzie’s gluten-free, Grandma’s off dairy, and Grandpa’s watching carbs. What’s a Thanksgiving hostess to do?

As people become more and more aware of what they’re eating these days, it seems like everyone’s customizing their food preferences. Some are interested in how certain ingredients affect their health and well-being. Others are looking at labels – organic, preservative-free, non-GMO, etc. – for a “clean” lifestyle., the go-to online community for quality kosher cooking and conversation, recommends keeping an assortment of dishes in your Thanksgiving arsenal. You want a feast that has enough variety to satisfy each guest. Some might pass on certain dishes, but everyone should enjoy a balanced meal.

When planning your menu, think in terms of a core menu that most guests will enjoy, and include at least one alternative appetizer, entrée, side, and dessert to accommodate those with restricted culinary preferences.
Of course, there are many “one size fits all” dishes that will make your omnivores just as happy as the more selective eaters. Here are some to consider.

For Starters, try a Caramelized Pumpkin Salad, a picture-perfect fall salad that is meatless and gluten-free. The hearty Roasted Sweet Potato and Apple Soup is a low-carb, low-fat, vegan harvest in a bowl.

Main Courses: Paleo-friendly Chestnut Chicken is a snap to prepare (6 ingredients, 2 steps!). If turkey is a must for Turkey Day, why not change things up with robust, gluten-free Turkey Goulash? And for a vegan entrée, start this low-fat, gluten-free Curried Chickpea Stew in the morning and then let your slow-cooker do the rest.

Sides are the key to a memorable Thanksgiving spread, and this Easy Gluten-Free Cornbread is something everyone will be thankful for. Serve it straight up or use it in a good-for-you stuffing. (Hint: make it dairy-free – just swap out the milk for unsweetened almond milk.) Irresistible Hasselback Candied Sweet Potatoes get high marks for originality and pretty much everything else: they’re vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, low carb, and low fat! Same with this simple paleo-friendly, 4-ingredient Fruit-Filled Squash.

“No dessert, please,” said no one ever. to the rescue for the nondairy crowd! Chocolate Chestnut Trifle is actually 3 desserts in one, as the rich chocolate cake and chestnut cream components can stand on their own. But it’s a cinch to assemble, so go ahead and wow them with a decadent masterpiece. For the “it’s not Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie” set, this Flourless Pumpkin Pie (complete with whipped topping) is a gluten-free, dairy-free no-brainer.
Drinks: Every great meal deserves a toast. Let’s video channel introduce you to five fabulous autumn cocktails and show you how to be a master mixologists. Or take a tip from wine expert and blogger Gabriel Geller, who knows all about Wines You Should Serve with Turkey.

The next day: Overnight guests are the perfect excuse to whip up a batch of Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Buns for breakfast. And finally…did somebody say leftovers? Check out Danielle Renov’s brilliant Leftover Hack video – you’ll never look at eggrolls the same way again.

Meal Kit Delivery Company Set to Grow in Success After Factory Location Opening

What a Crock Meals To Go Logo

What a Crock Meals to Go™, a rapid growth startup, is opening a state of the art food production facility.

The new space is allowing business to boom.”

— Justin West, WAC Founder


What a Crock Meals to Go™, a meal kit delivery company is opening a state of the art food production facility in mid-November in Collingdale, PA. The 10,000 square foot facility is opening after just four years of the company’s launch.

What a Crock is a rapid growth startup that was self-financed by a young couple out of Delaware County, Pennsylvania. Since opening their door in late September 2014, the company has seen extreme growth both in the retail sector and online sales. The company has grown from a 1 shop mom and pop startup to a 6 location chain with a strong e-commerce presence that accounts for about 70% of the companies revenue.

“We are so thankful for the success our company has had and overwhelmed with the support we have received,” says Justin West, company founder.

With such rapid growth, the company’s largest obstacle has been space. Up until now, What a Crock has been operating out of a 2,000 square foot building that is bursting at the seams. With such high demand in orders and limited space, the company was forced to slow down their expansion until their new facility became operational.

The company’s new facility is roughly 10,000 square feet with ample storage and production space. The added space is allowing the company to go from a small player in the foodservice industry to a full-on force to be reckoned with to the larger better-known companies.

“The new space is allowing business to boom,” West said. “We are so happy with the success rate it has already proven so far!”

What a Crock plans to carve out its share of the pie by marketing its strengths over the larger companies. The largest differentiator is the fact that they are able to offer the “home cooked experience” with none of the work.

Traditional food service companies ship their customers all the ingredients they need to make a gourmet home-cooked meal, but the customer still has to prep, trim, cook, and serve the dish. When you order What a Crock, the customer simply places already prepared ingredients into the slow cooker and allows the crockpot to do the rest of the work.

It is a very simple, hands-off process that can save the customer time and stress of chopping, measuring, and cooking the meal themselves. This is incredibly beneficial for busy families with working parents that would rather save time cooking and use it to spend time with their loved ones.

This may be your first time hearing about What a Crock, but by the look of things, it will certainly not be your last.

Honey Buns and Ramen Noodles Top the Commissary List

Food is essential to life; therefore, make it great!”

— Tanner George Cummings

NORTH DIGHTON, MA, UNITED STATES, November 5, 2018 / — Hot tap water, ramen noodles, Fritos, canned sausage and cheese. This concoction is one of many that supplement the bland food served in prisons. It is the prison culture, that many prisoners do not want to eat what comes out of the kitchens; that’s usually the number one complaint. Prison cuisine. has earned a reputation for being unpalatable.

The prison kitchens serve meals that are lacking in taste, smell odd and are not appealing to say the least. Prison kitchens don’t worry about seasonings, being tasty or even what it looks like; Prison food is not prepared in that manner.

To supplement, prisons provide inmates the privilege of purchasing commissary items—varying from hygiene products, paper, envelopes and postage stamps to flavorings—that can provide those behind bars a taste of home and makes revenue for the facility. The profit made from the sales on commissary is called Inmate Trust Funds and can only be spent on things that directly benefit the prisoners. Funds for items that are direct expenses have been spent on uniforms, blankets, hygiene kits, towels, mattresses, jailhouse sandals and more. Purchases of new cameras for surveillance and computer terminal areas used by the inmates for their email services, or buying downloads of books, music, photos for their tablets.

Commissary food is king but can get boring if you eat it just the way it comes. So, to be creative is key. Ramen noodles are a common staple. The noodles, honey buns, coffee and jalapeño pretzels made the list of inmates’ favorite delicacies. Commissary is the prisons’ general market/store. Commissary items also can be traded and bartered with.

Who's in the mood for a Sweet Vanilla Sin Coffee?

Not everyone can be a world-class Iron Chef of prison cooking therefore Freebird Publishers have created the Cell Chef Cookbooks. Our Cell Chef Cookbooks are filled with hundreds of fantastic recipes, that can be simply made with every day, commonly sold commissary/store foods. Every recipe has been tried and thoroughly tested. Loved by everyone.

You do not have to drop major money to make something delish. Simple, inexpensive foods can easily be made into interesting mouth-watering recipes, that you will make over and over again.

In the Cell Chef Cookbooks, the recipes are divided into four sections: Meals and Snacks, Sauces, Sandwich Spreads, Salsa and Dips, Drinks and Sweet Desserts. Our Cell Chef Cookbooks have extensive Glossaries and Indexes, created to assist you in the process of your preparations and leading to the pleasure of enjoying these wonderful, tasty dishes. Our Cell Chef Cookbooks’ recipes have each been organized with a list of all the needed ingredients, and easy-to-follow directions on how to make them to perfection.

Food is essential to life; therefore, make it great.

The voters have spoken and have chosen The Game Grumps and Lety Does Stuff as the new cast characters in the hilarious House Party game.

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, November 2, 2018 / — Eek! Games today announced the winners who will join the zany characters in the House Party Game on PC.

Early October, Eek! invited ladies and men to audition to join the cast of their game, House Party. Over the past month, entrants posted profiles and pictures on the House Party site, and the gaming community was invited to vote for their favorite new additions to the cast. One lady and one gent would be selected as a cast member with their own custom avatars, appearing as regulars in the game.

The official ballot closed on Halloween evening at midnight, and The Game Grumps and Lety Does Stuff were declared victors in this exciting race. The winners will not only be immortalized in the game, but also take home a $1,000 cash prize.

“This is the next level of ground-breaking, user-based content and House Party is thrilled to have The Game Grumps and Lety does Stuff as in-game characters added to the mix. As far as we know, it’s never been done before. The fact that the winners are an amazing streamer and a House Party Cosplay model just makes it even more fun for everybody.” Said Bobby Ricci, CEO and Founder of Eek! Games.

The winners of the auditions are quite extraordinary in their own right. The Game Grumps, Arin Hanson and Dan Avidan have been YouTube streamers for many years with 4.8 million subscribers to their popular series. It was no doubt, a pleasant surprise to have such notable entrants as the eventual winners of the male auditions.
"House Party is a pretty legendary playthrough on the Game Grumps channel. We're hoping to add a little bit of the friendship-focused goofiness Game Grumps is known for to the game with Arin and Dan. Or, at the very least, add to the chaos of the party and get beaten up by Frank a bunch of times."

The female auditions winners is equally engrained in the video game industry and an accomplished streamer and influencer with her own successful YouTube channel. Lety Does Stuff has relished playing House Party for some time and could barely contain her excitement when she was notified of her win…
"Without exaggeration, I can proudly say that I have played House Party for the entirety of my adult life. This game has gone through its super awkward teen years with me, and I am so excited to join its now fully-developed cast of characters and storytelling to continue maturing alongside it. I'm just kidding— Lety's joining the party, this place boutta get turnt!"

The House Party game is expectedly risqué in nature and touches on topics of debauchery, sex and comedic fun between player and the therapy-needing cast. But as players have long since discovered, House Party is so much more…it’s cerebral and witty, with players accumulating scores of hours of intoxicating fun. That’s because House Party is a smart sexy game, which delivers a unique gameplay mechanic through an advanced AI system whereby the player’s every choice influences the reaction and outcome of the game.

The game also delivers a very unique Custom Story Creator, which allows players to create their own stories for the game which they can share with others who can play through new experiences and new character reactions for tremendous and fun replay-ability.

The game community has certainly embraced House Party and it’s reflected its historical high review scores on Steam. Follow us Facebook at or on Twitter at


About Eek Games!
Eek! Games was started in 2015, with “House Party” as its first title. Programmer, Bobby Ricci, had worked on a few other projects prior. In 2017 House Party was launched on Steam, as an Early Access game. Even though it was still very premature, the initial reception was surprising, and the community built quickly. The game sold over 30,000 copies in the first few weeks and over 300,000 purchased downloads in its first year, alone.
Bobby and Eek! Games have many more game ideas brewing with a new update to House Party coming in late October and a new title in the works for a tentative 2020 Early Access release.

The cast in House Party are not your typical stereotypes that you would see in other types of media. They are all quite different and yet totally relatable. Game Grumps and Lety joining House Party… simply amazing and will add to the familiarity of the Party.
The new stories and challenges we are cooking up… We know you are going to have a blast!
