I came across a wonderful crock pot lasagna recipe: you layer your meat (browned)/sauce then uncooked lasagna noodles, then cheesy layer, repeat and end with noodles. top with grated cheese just before serving. Looking at the ingredients I didn't see anything that was adapted specially for the crockpot, so I'm going to use a "regular" ingredient list. I HATE making it the traditional way but this looks easy. I plan on making one when DS and DD are home from college sometime. I work long hours, so the crockpot is a fave sub for the grill over the winter.

these all sound soooo good! I love to use my crockpot, but never had very many easy recipes for it! I will be checking the sites you all have mentioned! And, I am trying the chicken recipe that TiffanyD posted... that sounds good, and I already have all the ingredients here... tomorrow is grocery day for us, so I am low on a lot of things! Thanks!!

can't wait to get back to the "real" world!

I'm going to move this over to the Cooking Board since there's quite a bit of interest in sharing some new recipes. Don't forget to check out the links in my previous post for more ideas.

I have this problem too. My crockpot cooks so hot I am afraid to leave it all day. I use my a lot on the weekend. Once I took it to work, but everyone wanted to come home with me for dinner!

Depending on what you're cooking, you could start the food from frozen. I do that with all kinds of things. It makes it faster to put together and needs to cook longer.

The newer crockpots do tend to cook hotter than older ones. It takes a bit of trial and error to learn what works with your pot. Also, it should be pretty full (like half or more) in order not to over cook things. You can put another smaller dish inside the pot to make yours smaller, if needed.

One of our favorite crock-pot concoctions is:

2 "rings" of sausage (we use 1 kielbasa and 1 smoked sausage)
4 cans whole potatoes w/ juice
3 cans green beans w/ juice

Slice the sausage, dump everything in the crockpot, add additional water if needed in order to cover everything, cook on low all day. I serve it with slices of bread from our bread maker. Could not be easier!

I've never heard of this one. What kind of bologna? Just beef bologna from the deli? Ring bologna? Do you add anything in the way of spices or sauce?

And just so you know, I've added these recipes to the "Crock Pot Crazy" thread and added them to the index which is stuck at the top of the Cooking forum.
