I heartily second the recommendation for the 365Crockpot blog -- I *love* her recipes!!!!

My other favorite right now is The Indian Slow Cooker: 50 Healthy, Easy, Authentic Recipes by Anupy Singla. I love these recipes!!! It's so easy to make in the crockpot and they come out so delicious! I especially love the fact that she uses almost no fat at all and the bean and legume recipes are soooooooo healthy! She also has a blog (www.indianasapplepie.com) but she doesn't have many recipes there.

I have a few crockpot books with my favorite one being "300 slow cooker favorites" by Donna-Marie Pye. I bought the book at Costco last year and it has been great everytime I use it. I just need to use it more :)

My all time favorite crock-pot cookbook is the "Company's Coming" one. I even have rated the ones that I have tried.

Did you try Stephanie the crockpot lady (link below)? She has lots of interesting ones and different flavors.

Carol -

Thanks for the sweet message about my pictures and the advice on how to search for recipies on SparkRecipies. I have used them to find a few but most of them are just variations of the same recipe. I have found some ones I love on here and it is definately easier to import to my calorie counter but I need variety!! I am trying to use my crockpot at least two days a week so I have more time at night to get stuff done.

Thanks everyone else for their input to and if you happen to come across a good book don't forget to let me know emoticon

I like SparkRecipes.com because you can import them into Nutrition Tracker. And it's free, and doesn't clutter like cookbooks do. Be aware you can search for 4 different spellings in SparkRecipes: crock pot, crockpot, slow cooker, and slowcooker. (So if you don't find a recipe you're looking for the first time, try again.) You can save the ones you like into your own on-line cookbook.

My second choice is Stephanie the crock pot lady's website, which is also free and also free emailed recipes signup:
crockpot365.blogspot.com/2007/12/alp
ha
betical-listing-of-recipes.html


And the reason I mention her is because I KNOW her new book will be good, which comes out in October:
www.amazon.com/gp/product/1401310044
?i
e=UTF8&tag=totatogejour-20&linkCode=R>xm2&camp=1789&creativeASIN=1401310044


Stephanie decided in 2008, to cook out of her crockpot everyday. She called it the crockpot diet (it wasn't really a diet). I learned how to make yogurt in my crockpot thanks to Stephanie.

Believe it or not, I actually use the pamphlet recipe booklets that came with the slow cooker. They have really good recipes in them!

I noticed some of the recipes in SparkRecipes were copied directly from Rival's website, like salsa chicken.

I loved your SparkPage, your wedding pictures are so beautiful and even the dog & cat picture is so cute . . . perfectly themed.

I, too think the "crackpot" change is too funny. I used to have a cookbook for it, but have lost it in moving :-(. I cant even remember which one it was. Good luck, Have you tried some of the recipes on here? Have a great day, Heather

I am wondering if any of ya'll have a favorite crock pot book? I love using my slow cooker and have found 3 recipes (have tried about 7) that my husband and I love but am in desperate need of more. Are there any books you recommend?
Thanks emoticon

p.s. When I did the spell check it wanted to change crockpot to crackpot!!
