What's In Your Crockpot?

I received this brand spanking new, shiny red crockpot as a housewarming gift back in October, and I hate to admit it but I've only used the thing once (gasp). Yes, yes...my crockpot has been gathering dust on my kitchen shelf ever since, and I think it's time I revive the crockpot as part of my dinner routine.

The problem: I don't know where to start. Anyone with a great go-to crockpot recipe or fave dish please send them my way!

I LOVE my crock pot! My go-to recipes are this chicken cassoulet:


and these chili chicken tacos:


Both are amazing! Good luck!

This probably isn't great but you can always make a stew!
I haven't used mine either, it's still in the box and I've had it for 3 years.
I just make it stove top. I think it's mostly because I forget it's there.
Maybe this Fall I'll make a point of using it at least once!

The crockpot is the greatest invention ever. I prep everything the evening before, flip the switch when I leave the house in the morning and when I get home from school with the kids late in the afternoon, dinner's just about ready and I've got time to do something fun with them before we all sit down.

I have a great cookbook, but can't think of the name right now. When I do, I'll let you know!

My crockpot sat in its box for well over a year before I got it out. Now I use it at least once a week!

It’s very pretty. Like the colour!
I usually use this website when I am cooking:
It is really good and they have many one pot recipes!
Kisses and I hope you will find something great there!

I love crock-pots. I have a super-easy recipe: 8 chicken thighs (or more), one can of coconut milk, 4 tbsps of Madras curry paste, 1/2 cup of peanut butter, and 1/4 cup of fish sauce. Five hours on high or eight hours on low. Serve over rice!
