    • Yes, my favorite recipe for crockpot cooking is Wanda’s Soup.
      So far, I’ve cooked beef stew and barbebque chicken and intend to use my crockpot often this fall/winter season.

    • Ok, Kathy, how do I cook potatoes in there without having some unpalatable mush? I did round steak and potatoes and mushroom soup on Saturday.  Put the potatoes in at noon and they were ok, but I wouldn’t have wanted them to cook much longer than that.

      My problem is I leave home at 7 am and most nights don’t get home until 7 pm.  

      I need some ideas besides my standard roast beef or chili.  Hubby is not a big fan of soups.

      Quite honestly—after 30 years of putting meals on the table, I’m just sick and tired of cooking, especially since I’m on such a tight grocery budget at the moment.

    • This was the first time I added mushroom soup and I was so disappointed. In the pan, it turns into a nice, thick gravy - not so in the crock pot. And I happened to have fingerling potatoes on hand and I wouldn’t put them in a crock pot again either - much better roasted. Same with the green beans and that was a mistake!

      But the roast was heavenly!! Will probably cook the meat alone next time, although I have had success with cubed potatoes and carrots - without soup. Did a search online and somebody said not to use too much liquid.

      But you know what? I decided last night that I am so done with cooking! We’ve changed our eating habits and prefer a little snack with wine in the evening anyway. We also like to go out to eat but these days we often share appetizers. We just don’t eat as much at this age.

    • I do have a crock-pot but I don’t use it very often.  I usually  just cook chili in it.

    • I have 2 crock pots and don’t use either of them. I have good intentions to start cooking in them but then I get distracted by other things. worried

    • I make beef or chicken stew once in a while, but since hub and I eat light meals these days and son takes care of his own meals most of the time, the poor crock-pot sits alone.

      I will use it for a party when making a large amount of meatballs.
