I love my slow cooker I use it almost once a week .. I am practicing low carb life style so my meals are usually geared toward that
My stand by is a roast - cheapest beef cut you can find seasoned with garlic, black pepper, little paprika and salt (or whatever you like) (some people like to brown the meat on the stove top before putting in the crock pot)
Cut up red and green peppers, carrot, onions, and I add one can of stewed tomatoes
Add veggies at bottom - season with a tiny bit of salt and pepper
Add meat on top
One small can of tomato paste add to crock pot with half cup water mix the water and paste around a bit some it is not clumpy
Cook on low for approx 8 hours till its falling apart
Another one I really enjoy (not as low carb as I would like)- pork loin boneless Mix brown sugar 1/2 cup, 2 tablespoons of mustard, 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar make a paste and put on the pork loin and the loin to the crock pot and cook on low for nine or eight hours the pork will shred - ps it gets better the second day as left overs
Country ribs - add to crock pot with your fave bbq sauce cook on low eight hours
Chicken breast - (this is a popular sparks recipe) with one jar of great salsa cook on low approx five hours until the breast shred
ps if i want longer cook time or didnt have time to defrost the meats i put them in frozen and it just takes longer to cook i also add less licquid due to the defrosting
instead of adding water you can always add stock or broth to season the meal more

I would use mine everyday if I could! It's great for soups, I have a chicken corn chowder in mine for tonight. you can roast a whole chicken in it, just make some foil balls and place in the bottom season the chicken how you wish and put the lid on, I usually put mine on low for most of the day, sometimes I will use that chicken and shred it up to use as taco meat or any other recipe that calls for shredded chicken.

I have fallen in love with the crock pot and my parents got me a new one for CHristmas. Do you have any ideas or recipes? Even if it's a recipe you love(unhealthy) that I can change to make healthier;)
