I toyed with posting this as a guest.

Then I laughed and found my reading glasses and copied the link to post here.

From AARP.  Enjoy!

I use this recipe for stew (just made some today) and our whole family loves it. I leave out the celery since no one here really likes it cooked.

i just made this the other day, and substituted beer for 1/2 of the broth.  It was superb!

Re-raising since my new work schedule starts next week, and I have no idea how I'm going to get dinner on the table every night.

I'd love to  find some recipes that don't use much meat, and don't rely too heavily on tomato sauce - my GERD doesn't like it.

We started cutting out tomato - just does not agree with all of us and my daughter gets a painful rash around her mouth from it. We've been making Italian sausage with onions instead of tomato sauce, for example. I'm working on a crockpot tomato free baked bean dish - still thinking through that one for replacing the tomato.

Another thing I make is potatoes in the slow cooker. Dice potatoes into small cubes, throw in slow cooker with salt and some fat (we use certified casein-free ghee but olive oil would be fine). Cook on high for 3-4 hours or low for 8. Make a whole bag of potatoes and fry the leftovers in a pan for the next meal.

For a veggie dish, I bet you could make a good squash soup in the crockpot with onions and seasoning and vegetable broth. Blend with a hand blender when done and add coconut milk (if that is on your safe list).

Those sound delicious!  GGA, how I love potatoes.  I wish the rest of the family shared my enthusiasm for them. 

Then again, maybe better that they don't, LOL.   ;D

I made the most amazing thing last week. I will look for the recipe. It does involve tomatoes, but others may enjoy it.

Oh yes, please share. Even if I can't eat it,  the menfolk can.

Awesome resource, Mac!  I will have to look through those recipes and try some out.  DH bought me a crockpot for Chanukah to make life easier when shuttling the kids around prevents making dinner on time.  I haven't been sure what to do with the crockpot, though.

Some of these look really great!

BFFs DH made a yummy chick pea curry with a pressure cooker. I don't see why it couldn't be adapted for either traditional stovetop cooking or a crock.

I am going to do beef stew on Monday, my first day back to work should be a crockpot night, I think!

Wow, let me know how it comes out.  Looks amazing, but I'd think flank steak is too lean for the crock.

I can practically smell it!

The turkey, spinach and white bean soup I made today went over very well with both DH and DSD.

I'm pretty sure this would be good made vegetarian if you added an extra can of beans or so and used veggie broth.


I'm not great at writing recipes, since I improvise a lot to use up leftovers, but here goes.

Add to slow cooker:
6 cups broth (chicken, turkey, veggie)
1 red onion, chopped
1 yellow onion, chopped
2 ribs celery, chopped
handful of baby carrots, chopped
1 can of white beans, rinsed and drained
2-3 cups cooked chopped turkey or chicken
herbs and spices as you wish (I used black pepper, chervil, ground savory, tiny bit of cayenne and two bay leaves)

Cook on low until veggies are soft and cooked through.  About 2-3 hours before serving, add roughly chopped fresh spinach - I used about half a bag that I had leftover.
