We are in the midst of a kitchen remodel and we are subsisting on anything we can warm up in the microwave or cook in the toaster/convection oven. I also kept my crock pot out and was just researching recipes on the internet. But I thought I would ask if any moms out there have crock pot recipes that they tried and loved. Thanks so much for any and all suggestions.

I love Chicken...I put frozen chicken breasts in the crockpot with onions. Just pour cream of celery and cream of chicken soup on top, (I also put a little bit of cooking wine with it just for a different taste at times)and let it cook on low for 6-7 hours or high for 3-4 hours. I serve rice with it. Yummy! My kids love this recipe.

I use my crock pot all the time!

One of my easiest things is putting a jar of salsa in it with some chicken breasts and cooking it for about 8 hours on low. The chicken comes out so tender you can pull it apart with a fork. I then use the chicken for chicken tacos. It's good!

There are a TON of meal recipes for crock pots. I have a couple of cook books, but sometimes I just go online to find something different.

The one I make the most is simply a nice roast w/potatoes & carrots covered with 1 can of french onion soup. I use the small Campbells. It sits almost all day & the meat is "fall apart tender". I've also used the frozen meals in a bag & they are not too bad. You know, "just add water".

Same as the chicken with salsa - but I also add a pack of taco seasoning mix to it.

Another one - chicken breasts with BBQ sauce. Then it falls apart for BBQ chicken sandwiches.

I am a homeschool mom who "crocks" several times a week.
I have a word document with 12 different recipes if you would like me to email it to you. My advice is as follows. Buy 5 lbs of ground beef and go to a friend or relatives house and brown it off with onions. When it is cool you can fill 5 sandwich bags. I then place these bags in a gallon freezer bag and put in my freezer for later use in my crockpot. You can also do this with a large bag of chicken. I usually cook ground beef and a big pot of chicken on a Saturday and freeze it all. This will enable you to use your crockpot like you would to cook a casserole in the oven. You can mix it together and let it cook for 2-4 hours on low until everything is done. This way you don't have to worry about the meat being done.

You might also try a rice cooker. There are many great recipes for those. I use mine for Jambalya and even for oatmeal in the mornings. I have a word document for those too if you want them.

Let me know if you want my recipes - my roast recipe is to die for and only takes 1 can of coke and a pkg of lipton onion soup mix. Yum! Good luck on your kitchen remodel!

my favorite is good old pot roast, I know it's kind of old and boring, but just so delicious!

put a roast in the crockpot the night before (season with salt, pepper, garlic + whatever else you like) add water until it almost covers the top of the meat, cook on high. First thing upon waking up turn heat to low, sometime between then and noonish (depending on how soft you like them) add carrots and potatoes, serve at dinnertime.

First, congratulations on your pregnancy. Good luck.

I cook with my crock pot several times a week and one of our stand by favorites is Pizza in a Bottle. Super Easy!

Mix in a crockpot on 6-8 hours:
1 jar of pasta sauce (26-30 oz)
1 cup water
1 cup macaroni noodles
1 Bell pepper diced
1 med. onion diced
1 container of fresh mushrooms
1 packet of pepperoni (approx 6 oz diced)
1 tablespoon of italian seasoning
1 small can of diced tomatoes

Top with shredded mozzarella cheese to your taste.

The best part of this is just add whatever you would have on a pizza. We don't prefer onions so just leave them out.

If you are going to freeze part of it, don't have noodles in that part. The noodles go mushy when you reheat.

I get a newsletter from They can give you a variety of recipes.
I like to get the easy packets from the grocery and that make a lot of food for us.

Hope this helps.

Congratulations on #3.

Hi well this really did not come from any specific recipe but it turned really well. Just last week I put a roast in the crock pot with potatos and onions for the next day while making dinner that evening. I had placed some brat size sausage links that I had made from the small amount of ground venison I had left from making summer sausage. Watching them carefully they got a little dry and I decided to add them too my roast. I was not quite sure how they would turn out but by the time I got home the next day we were all pleasantly surprised at how it turned out.
