    I don't have a favorite. But I love my crockpot. My old one I got for our wedding in May 1998 & it still works perfect. DH got me a new one where you can remove the pot for easy cleaning. Love it but am a little sentimental over the wedding one.

    I like a lot of recipes from here.

    I LOVE my slow cooker! I'll be trying some of the recipes in this thread

    Creamy cheesy chicken:
    Rub garlic salt, garlic powder, and pepper on boneless skinless chicken breast. Place in sow cooker and pour cream of chicken and cheddar cheese soup over chicken. Serve with rice. It's delicious!

    Tender pork chops
    Lightly brown both sides of pork chops. Salt and pepper them. Place in slow cooker and pour a can of mushroom soup and a half a can of water. I cook on low for 5-6 hours. DH and I hate mushrooms, but we LOVE these pork chops.

    Zesty BBQ chicken sandwiches

    It's the last thing in the kitchen you should be afraid of

    Just follow a recipe (they are usually pretty simple). The first time you cook with it, watch how quickly it cooks the food. I dont know if it's the size of my slow cooker, but on low it still cooks fast (most dishes on low will be done after 4-5 hours). I have to turn it on warm after awhile so I dont burn the food. After a couple uses you'll get to know how your slow cooker cooks on different settings

    I got one for christmas too! I have my own daycare, and everyone normally gets picked up at 5 at the latest. We eat dinner at 530, for a 7pm bedtime for DD. Cooking in the crockpot makes that so doable but you throw everything in the pot, and it cooks all day and makes your house smell amaaaaaazing

    Don't be afraid!!!

    Oh gosh...so i definately shouldn't set it and leave it until I develop a relationship with my crockpot and get to know its capabilities! haha! Ok...I'll try it on my next day off. I'll let you guys know how it goes!

    Most will give you a good 6-8 hours on low, but like I said, I've had roast beef burn after 7 hours (recipe said 7-8 hours). I've also had bean soup in a slow cooker most of the day and it turned out great. Sometimes it depends on what you're cooking. So I usually dont put my food in the slow cooker until 1-2pm. But after one use you should have a good idea

    1 package taco seasoning (I prefer the hot & spicy pack to the mild)
    1 package ranch dressing

    Top with chips, sour cream (if you like it - I don't) & cheddar cheese.

    This is perfect on a cold day or for a day of football. Great alternative to chili.

    And guess what?! NO BUTTER!

    I made this the other night and it was amazing!
