I am looking for slow cooker/crock pot recipes that have actually been tried and approved by my fellow bloggers. If you will send me your favorite recipe, I'll send you one of mine. Also, I have put a reminder on my sidebar with my email address and I have created a link to crock pot recipes from Those all look good but I find it's usually best to have a testimonial for the real good stuff.

Did you read my blog yesterday? If not, you must at least read the comments. Nancy even came back twice to comment and you guys did a better job with things you shared than I did with my story.

Instead of repeating my "I Love Your Blog" link, I'm going to leave each one a couple of days so you an still catch them while they are posted. If I'm featuring your blog, I'll try to remember to at least tell you.


  1. i use my crockpot all the time, especially in cold weather! i have lots of recipes, but they are all in my head... im going to have to write a couple down for you! happy wednesday! :)

  2. Good Wednesday morning to you Granny.
    I don't have any, and I wish I did - Slow cooker recipes are great !

  3. I have a doozy, but haven't made it in ages so will have to find the recipe! It's complicated, but different and good, a real recipe from Mexico that (not our usual) Tex/Mex that we call "Clemente's Mama's Special Occasion Stew"

  4. Oh, Bother! When will I learn to proof read! I mean that it isn't the usual Tex/Mex style of cooking that we all know and love..

  5. Hi there....I have a couple for you so here goes:

    Down South B.Q
    2 onions 5-6 cloves
    4-5# pork roast 1/2 cup water
    Place onions on bottom of crock-pot
    Add roast and other ingredients. Cook on low 8-12 hrs or overnight.
    Remove bone and fat from meat and return to crock pot. Add 1 large copped onion and 16 0z. you favorite BQ sauce. Cover and cook 1-3 hrs. on high or 4-8 hours on low. Stir two or three times during cooking. Serve on buns.

    Romanian Baked Chicken Vegetable Stew
    2 chicken breast cubed
    2 pot. pared and cubed
    2 carrots pared and cubed
    1/2 cauliflower, cut in flowerets
    2 ribs celery cut in slices
    1/2 pound mushrooms, sliced
    2 onions, sliced
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1 can (13 oz.) chicken broth
    2 tsp. salt
    1/8 tsp. pepper
    1 tsp. dried dill weed
    Put all in crockpot and cook for 6-8 hours on low.
    This can also be baked or cooked on top of the stove. Just cook until vegetables are tender.

  6. I'll get you a couple of recipes. Love the crock pot.

  7. Ohhhhhhhhhh Annie!!! I was wondering why so many new visitors and someone said you had sent her over. LOL!!!!!!!!!! Thanks!!!!

  8. I love to use the crock pot. Cook book for crockpots seem to have a high incidence of mushroom soup in them. NOT A FAN.

    I use mine for spaghetti, roast, ham and beans and a tasty chicken and rice dish. I'll look them up and send them over.

  9. Here is a recipe that is very easy to do: Take a whole chicken, clean out the cavity and rub olive oil over the entire chicken. Season the entire chicken with your favorite seasonings and place the chicken in the crock pot. Turn it on low and cook it all day and you will have the best chicken in town. PS: I do not add any water to the crock pot but if you feel that you must, add a very small amount...The chicken makes plenty of juice on its own. Now my crock pot actually cooks low on low so it allows the juices to come out and not burn the chicken. The chicken comes out of the pot and just falls off the bones. Whatever is left after the meal, goes into a chicken salad....Yummmmm.
