    Let me tell you, I was missing out on A LOT! I had purchased a Rival Crock-Pot a couple of years ago and just had it in storage. The other day, I was cleaning out my cabinet and saw it was so lonely. I pulled it out and followed a recipe....it was delish! This is the third day in a row I will be using it and my family believes the recipes are getting better and better! I am so happy that I discovered this style of cooking. I like when you just dump everything in a pot and then you have dinner ready just in time for when everyone is home. Works great when you have three kids, different activities, etc to attend. Pls share with me your fav recipe for a crock-pot. BTW a Chili Recipe that is posted on Zaar is our most FAVORITE meal.

    Okay, iLuv, you can't just say that and not give us the recipe. That's uncooth, uncalled for and not fatening at all!

    Below are listed some of our favorite recipes.

    Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast (with only 1/2 cup water and potatoes and carrots added)

    Crock-Pot Boston Butt Shoulder for Pulled Pork (good, but it'll make a traditional BBQ'r go get a rope!)

    Big Crock Pot Full of Pinto Beans

    Favorite Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas (Used a crock pot, layered corn tortillas instead of rolled, and cooked until heated up since all ingredients were cooked - about 4 hours on low)

    Cheesy Crockpot Chicken

    Crock Pot Steak and Gravy

    Cooking a Pre-Cooked Ham in the Crock Pot

    Paula Deen's Grillades and Grits (recipe references crock pot but that's all. I adapted by making the roux and grits separately and cooking the meat and sauce in the crock pot)

    Chicken Cacciatore (Crock Pot) (my recipe is similar but not posted yet. I add dry pasta during the last 30 minutes and cook on high)

    OOPs, sorry! Our FAV chili is Wendy's Chili #17858 posted right here on Zaar. I added a can of Rotel Tomatoes..you know the one with the diced tomatoes and chilis in a can. BTW, I forgot on how to link! You certainly have posted some quite interesting ones. That Chicken Cacciatore looks like our next candidate. I will continue to experiment and keep ya' posted. Thanks so much for the quick reply.

    I do like mine, I don't many casserole or that it is. However, Making stock, chicken and dumplings, I make a Thai Chicken Rice bowl I love. Beef tips in a red wine beef mushrooms sauce over noodles (you can leave the wine out), I make a chicken stew with mushrooms, asparagus and lemon, chili is great and some soups. I like the layered flavor of soups, but there are many that are very good.

    Ham, pulled pork. I stuff flank steak and pork tenderloins (I do pan sear first to brown and then add, but 8 hours later dinner.

    My friends favorites. My pork tenderloin stuffed with caramelized onions, gorgonzola cheese, pecans, figs, apricots and cranberries. Then slow cooked with fresh pears in a chicken white wine broth and then drizzled over the top of mashed potatoes and leeks. 15 minutes to stuff, 15 minutes to make the potatoes and leeks in the microwave a nice salad and crunchy bread. I won first price for this at a local contest.

    I make another with apples and pears, and pork tenderloin (not stuffed), brushed with garlic and maple syrup. The broth is chicken broth, apple cider, white wine if you want, surrounded with sweet and white potatoes and pearl onions and cremini mushrooms and just baked. Just slice and serve. Make a quick vegetable and presto.
    ------------------------------------

    QUICK NOTE: When cooking in a crock pot, the last 30-40 minutes, wrap you beans or asparagus or peas in a foil pouch and set in the crock pot. They will be done and no pots. If you have rolls, you can heat up as well. They won't brown, but will heat up. Especially fresh slices of bread. You can wrap in parchment paper too which I prefer, but either works

    93 degrees? Are you serious? That's just wrong. It's Octytober for crying out loud. You know, cold snap, clear skys, big moon. Oh well, we are talking Florida and there are some great advantages too.

    93 and hot as hell! Hottest week since May. We had 2 cool days in the 80's, I am ready by now for cooler weather. I love heat, but it is time to cool a little. Guests are arriving dinner time.

    Love and use my slow cooker/crockpot year round and have been using it for the past 40 year; best thing invented for a family and perfect for 2(bought a smaller one last year)
    I have a huge cookbook with some recipes from Zaar.
    Hope you will find some to inspire you.

    I love my crockpot too. One thing to note is the newer crockpots cook a lot hotter than the old ones do so the food cooks faster. If you are using an older recipe be careful on the times. Some of the recipes will state 8-10 hours, but I find that if I cook them that long they will be mush! Soups and stews are usually the recipes that I can leave on all day long.

    My crockpot has a high, low and keep warm setting. I love that last setting if everything is done and I won't be serving for another hour or so. Happy cooking!

    Here are some of my favorites:
    Crock Pot Chicken Enchiladas
    Layered Crock Pot Lasagna With Zucchini or Spinach
    Hamburger Barley Stew (Crock Pot)
    Ratatouille in the Crock Pot
    Crock Pot Sweet Potatoes
    Baked Potatoes from the Crock Pot
    Crock Pot Turkey Breast
