We just got a new slow cooker and am looking for some tried and tested recipes or links to recipes online. I am currently in the process of making a steak chili today and the smell is driving me crazy...LOL

My grammie had a recipe for potatoes, ham and cheese that she used to slow cook in a pot long before there were slow cookers. It took some time but we played around with it and made a version for the crock pot / slow cooker. It's basically potatoes, cheddar cheese and diced ham. We tried using real potatoes but they always got too mushy. Get two boxes of scalloped potatoes (the boxed kind at the grocery store), prep them in a pot so the milk and water are combined with the dried potatoes then toss them in the cooker. Dice up ham into whatever size cube you like and add that; you can add pretty much anything you want to it but we stick with the basics. Cook it for about three hours or until everything is one big gooey sloppy mess and it's ready to go. A few friends said there was no way they would get full off of it but they did plus it has protein, veggies and milk so it is (somewhat) good for you. Great for winter weather too.

We recently tried something in our crockpot on a whim. It was absolutely wonderful. We saw one of those packaged mixes (in the section where the gravy mixes are sold). It as for slow cooker pulled pork barbque and is sold by McCormick. You put a pork roast into the crock. You add the mix, I believe it was 1/4 cup ketchup and some vinegar (can't recall how much). It cooks all day. When ready to serve, you take a fork and shred it. (It just fell apart!) This was absolutely wonderful on some toasted buns! (that last sentence is really loaded huh?)

You think the chili smelled good? Try this! CROCKPOT BANANA BREAD ===================== (Makes 4 to 6 servings) Ingredients: ------------ 1 3/4 cup flour 2 tsp baking powder 1/4 tsp baking soda 1/2 tsp salt 1/3 cup shortening 2/3 cup sugar 2 eggs, well beaten 1 1/2 cups well mashed, overripe banana (2 or 3 bananas) 1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts (optional) Instructions: ------------- Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. With the electric beater on low, fluff the shortening in a small bowl, until soft and creamy. Add the sugar gradually. Beat in the eggs in a slow stream. With a fork, beat in 1/3 of the flour mixture, 1/2 the bananas another 1/3 of the flour mixture, the rest of the bananas then the last of the flour mixture. Fold in the walnuts (optional). Turn into a greased and floured baking unit or a 2 1/2 quart mold and cover. Place on a rack in the slow cooker. Cover the cooker, but prop the lid open with a toothpick or a twist of foil to let the excess steam excape. Cook on high for 4 to 6 hours. Cool on a rack for 10 minutes. Serve Warm.
