I received a really great crock pot (it has three different inserts depending on if you're cooking 2, 4, or 6 quarts of food) for Christmas and I'm very limitted about what I know how to cook in them. I know how to do a beef stew, roast, and meatballs. I would love to get a slow-cooker or crock pot cookbook, but I'm worried it will be filled with a bunch of recipes we'll never use. Do you get your recipes from cookbooks or online . . . or were they handed down from your family? What are your favorite crock pot recipes? What is your favorite crock pot recipe book? What is your favorite recipe website?

Hi, I'm a lazy and reluctant cook, so I find the crockpot very convenient. I often cook meat soups in it, using meat bones and adding vegetables like radish or a mixture of tomatoes, potatoes, onions or lotus roots. I also use the crockpot to cook beef stews or curries. I just let it cook for 4 hours until the meat is tender and the stew/curry/soup is ready.

Thank you for posting this discussion! I got a crock pot for Christmas too and I have no idea what to make in it. I have no recipes other than the few that came with it. Being I don't eat red meat, I'm really at a loss as to what to cook in it. I went to the used bookstore looking for a crock pot cookbook but was unable to find one. I couldn't seem to find anything really interesting online either. So I too am really interested in some recipes. If you find anything, please post!

My mom always makes this stuff called broccoli and cheese cassarole. Its great! It has rice, broccoli, cheese and a few other items in it. We make it for Thanksgiving and Christmas because its a family favorite. Then every once in a while we make it just to have. Most of the recipes we have are handed down from family and friends. I also go online to look up certain other things we want to try. Not to mention the few cook books we have. Which normally just sit around for looks.
