MORE crock pot & inner peace

It's not getting any warmer here (as evidenced by the frost on my windshield, lawn and roof).  I've slammed the storm windows shut, buried my sandals and dug out my boots.  I pulled the hats, scarves and mittens out of storage and swapped out my sunscreen for sweaters. 

Time for hot meals, served after the sun goes down. 

Send along your favorite no-fail-scrape-the-bottom-'cuz-it's-delish crock pot recipes.  I don't write a cooking blog, but I DO like to EAT.  I'll post all of your nummy recipes here next week AND I've got a prize for the winner.

 Now it's time to roll up my sleeves and crack away at my to-do list.  Thank goodness the week's half over.

  3. I don't really have any recipes --I just throw stock, meat, and veggies in with some herbs. I'm looking forward to what your other readers come up with!

  6. I made this last weekend and it turned out great.....almost rotisserie chicken. Put a bed of carrots in the bottom of my crockpot....seasoned with salt, pepper and thyme. Then took a whole chicken, seasoned the cavity with a generous sprinkling of salt, pepper, garlic powder and thyme. Then seasoned the top in a similar manner, but added smoked paprika and poured about a cup of chicken stock in the bottom. Cooked on high till done, 5-6 hours. Was great......we ate the chicken.....then I saved the broth, skimmed the fat and made soup on another day with the leftover chicken, frozen veggies and quinoa....very yummy.

  7. Our favorite is on allrecipes.com called Jennie's Heavenly Slow Cooker Chicken. We all loved it so much I told a few friends and all of them told me they had been making it for years. I was like, how did I miss this one? Anyways, the ingredients seem a little strange but it is great over egg noodles.

  8. GAWDAMN I love this recipe--frijoles (pinto beans, tomato etc) I make it so often, and so healthy--I use sweet potato, add spinach and some olive oil and plenty of jalapenos http://fatfreevegan.com/blog/2013/07/19/slow-cooker-butternut-squash-frijoles/

  9. Want some crock pot recipes? I can send you links. I tend to play with the crockpot, too. I use a soup formula rather than a straight up recipe. 1 cup of every vegetable in the fridge, 4-6 cups broth, and a couple of chicken breasts OR a can of beans or two OR that leftover beef stew meat.... you get the idea.

  10. We love a recipe from a website so I'm not sure what the etiquette for posting it is? It is called Chicken Taco Chili - whole family loves it!
