I like the web site crockingirls.com , but I have to watch and see what is in the recipe. Some are high in fat, calories etc. They even cook bread and brownies in the slow cooker.

There's a website called "skinnytaste" and she has great crockpot recipes. One of my favorites is a turkey, white bean and pumpkin chili.

I'm making a Crockpot Hawaiian Chicken for tonight. Unfortunately, it only takes 6 hours to cook but I just set the timer on my crockpot for 8 hours. The recipe is 4-6 chicken breasts, hawaiian-style bbq, and 1 can of crushed pineapple but I used fresh pineapple instead.

Throw a couple frozen chicken breasts into the crock pot, top with a can of diced tomatoes with green chiles, a can of drained and rinsed pinto or black beans, a cup of frozen corn, and a can of chicken broth (low sodium, low fat). sprinkle with cumin, parsley, pepper and a tiny bit of salt. Stir Cook on low 10-12 hours. When done, shred chicken with forks and serve over white rice.
