OMG I could go on and on. My husband loves using the crock pot, he has become pro.

You can make an awesomely awesome french dip in the crock pot. Just get some french bread from the bakery or store and then follow this recipe: French Dip The nice thing about this one is the cheaper the cut of meat, the better it turns out, at least it seems that way to me! We usually do steamed broccoli as a side.

Just a warning though: cut the soy sauce in half, make up for that lost amount of liquid with wine (1/4 cup of red wine) or with just water. This is pretty salty, so if you aren’t a big fan of salt I would say use half a boullion cube, too.

I make chili all the time in my crock pot. I can’t find the recipe, but there are tons online.  Easy and delicious!

Oooh, one of my favorites is butternut squash soup! Cut up one squash, add 5 cups veg broth, cook in the crockpot on low for about 3-4 hours, and then puree. Mix with sage, thyme and a little pepper to taste!

Another fave is ribs… just cut the ribs into individual rib pieces, make a dry rub with a little garlic powder, seasoned salt, pepper, cumin and a small pinch of cayenne, put in about 1/4 cup water and a tsp of worcestershire sauce and cook on high for four hours.

Gosh, I love using my crockpot for anything. So easy!

I “discovered” this last week.  I took it from some fancy recipe, and modified it.

Chicken and a jar of bbq sauce (enough to cover the chicken), for 6-7 hrs.  

It was wonderful.

OMG! Yes!

2 Things…I will have to run off and get the recipe annd come back.

First we make an amazing pot roast. It only takes about 4 ingrediants…and it turns out SO GOOD

The other REALLY easy one is BBQ Pork Ribs:   We buy the cheap ribs…I am not sure what they are…they don’t look like baby back….they are just these 4 strips of mean basically…but regardless:

Take your ribs…brown them in the over. Broiler…5min on each side   (I like to put a little “rub” on them with a mix of brown sugar, garlic power, and pepper

Once you have browned the ribs you cut them up into smaller peices. Then put them into the crock pot and pour a bottle of BBQ sauce. I use a bottle of BBQ and about a bottle of water

Then…cook on LOW for 4-6 hours

They taste SO yummy! and it’s so easy

Both the ribs and the pot roast are “fall off the bone” tender. Let me find that Pot Roast recepe and I will come back and post that

We do the chicken & cream cheese recipe a lot – serve it over noodles or rice.It’s easy and I can let it cook all day while I’m at work, class and the gym.


This one was awesome:


Mr. Mary Jane really liked it too, and he’s pretty hard to please!! It’s not spicy/peppery really, don’t let the name fool you (and if you love pepper, you will need to put a lot more in than it says). The steaks were SUPER tender.

Also, we both really liked this one:


I thought it was kind of watery until I added about 4 tbsp of butter to the recipe. It was awesome/creamy/really tasted like restaurant potato soup once I did that. Laughing It made a ton too. You could get probably three dinners for two out of it.


I’ve had mixed results with the recipes on this site, but there is tons of variety. A lot of her stuff is gluten-free too, which is nice if you need that (we don’t, but some people do I know).


Hope that helps!
