ok, I am pregnant and have been very very sick lately, I am sick all day! but it gets immobilizing around 4pm, It is hard to get dinner around here because smells make me sick. but I thought of crock pot cooking, because the smell eases into the house, I need crock pot recipes that are good, and healthy that I cook start doing for my family, so we can actually have meals again. Anyone have any? Any help is appreciated! Thanks! =)

I made alot of rice dishes while I was pregnant. That was about all I could eat besides peanut butter and butter sandwiches. The main one we had was rice with beef or rice with chicken. The key to these are less smell that cause you to get sick. I found that the less smell the better. Might I suggest a noodle dish like Pasta roni? My mother once said that if you place a potatoe in with a dish the smell will absorb into the potatoe. She also said that it works for a salty dish. I personally did not try it but she said it works. There was a recipe that I made with veg - chicken - broth in a crock pot. The veg were carrots - potatoes - celery. I remember making spagetti noodles with parmasan cheese instead of sauce. Stuffing was a good one also. Now that I look back on it everything to do with pasta helped me out. How about a baked potatoe with ground beef gravy with or without mushrooms and cheese? Rice with cheese and ham? Ham and scalloped potatoes? ground beef and gravy patties? I can not think of any others right now but if I do I will post. Hugs

Try some sweet and sour chicken. You will need 1 chicken, cut up (about 3 pounds) ,1/2 cup apricot or peach preserves ,1/2 cup French dressing (Catalina) 1 package dry onion soup mix Combine the preserves, dressing and soup mix. Place the chicken in a Crock Pot and pour mixture over. Cover and cook on low for eight to 10 hours. Great with rice or egg noodles.

Well, I just want to congratulate you. I have enjoyed it a lot when I was pregnant. And I am sorry that you have morning sickness. I had morning sickness with my first baby but not with my second one. I had headaches with my first one and pretty much ate anything. Sorry but I don't have a good recipe for ya, just wanted to share my pregnancy story too.

I would love to help, but I have only just brought myself a slow cooker and looking for recipes, I might check back later and see how this is going...lol...I know that when I do feel like cooking, I make extra and freeze the rest in containers, so that it can be heated up again if needed..for one of those days..

I made several roasts in the crockpot while I was pregnant. I would just buy a roast (beef or pork, doesn't matter), and add some seasonings, and a bunch of veggies. The veggies I usually used were carrots, potatoes, celery and onions, if you can stand the smell of them. Another thing that I did a lot while I was pregnant was casseroles. One of my favorites is a rice and chicken one. You get a package of chicken or mushroom flavored rice, and mix it with a can of cream of mushroom soup and a can of water. Then you put some pieces of boneless chicken on it and push them down in a little ways but leave a layer of the rice mixture underneath. Then you take another can of cream of mushroom soup and cover the chicken. You bake it in a preheated oven at 450 degrees for about an hour to an hour and 15 minutes. It's so easy to make. Just add a veggie to the side and you're done.

I know how you feel, I was the same way, I had morning sickness for 6 months. I could not smell food or watch much tv..the commercials got to me. If you do a search on crockpot in mylot you will find hundreds of recipes, certainly more then you will get by asking for them. Best of luck and hope you feel better.

My wife had the same problem when she was having our son. I can't really suggest or share any recipes as most things didn't help her, only ginger cookies and fruit helped but meal wise she still had things which the smell got to her. Sorry :( ~Joey
