Scroll down 4 posts to Long35's post on corn.

Most veggies (other than potatoes & corn) I don't do in the crockpot because I don't like them overcooked. Some exceptions are: veggie soup, zuchini boats, stuffed peppers. Also I take frozen mixed veggies in a crockpot to church suppers and such. They are good for keeping veggies warm, not cooking.

Thanks, Carol!

Tammy, my girlfriend made that all the time back in the 80's and early 90's, we called it "Slime" :-) We all loved it. It's great with blueberry.

I cooked a brisket in the crock pot the other day; it was supposed to be cooked in the oven and only supposed to be half as big but where I got it from didn't have a smaller size brisket. I cut it in half and froze the other half. This recipe was super easy, used cocktail sauce which I don't normally have but happened to have an old half bottle, why I chose the recipe; basically just cocktail sauce, beer, and brown sugar. It was really good, the brisket got really tender.

It reminded me of pulled pork barbecue; I'll have to try that in the crock pot; that would be a good summer meal or three; I usually buy a little plastic container of it for my husband but I could do some of the other half of the beef brisket for pulled pork, just use barbecue sauce instead of the cocktail and maybe leave out the sugar, use a really "thick", dark beer.

In the summer I make pulled pork barbeque in the crock pot. I still make my roast and corned beef, because of working I still try the crock pot to save time.

Corn on the cob takes a little work, but it works great. Shuck the corn, if you want it buttered do it now - wrap each cob in foil, then cook for about 4 to 6 hours depending on how many you put in and how crisp you like it. Might try it for your family first before cooking for guests so you will have a better idea of how long you need to cook to make it the way you like it.

Yes, Tammy there is a recipe out there!

It is on a box of white "Jiffy" mix. It is fruit magic.
You put one can pie filling in a 8"x8" square dish. Add enough softened butter to the cake mix until mix is crumbly. Bake at 350 for 30 min..

There was a gentleman in our Church, my age, who didn't care what flavor I had used. He'd buy it! He said it tasted just like his mother made. Same couple moved to Tenn. he came down with pancreatic cancer. So, I shared the 'easy' recipe with her; so she could make it for him!...........

I use my crockpot in the summer to keep from heating my kitchen up as the temps rise outside. Cook whole chicken and other meats to use on salads a lot

I do a dessert in my crock pot a lot in the summer. I use a couple of cans of pie filling, and top it with about 1/2 of a yellow cake mix that has been combined with some butter - I suspect there is a recipe out there somewhere. I believe I cook it on high for a couple of hours. My family really likes it.

My name is Tammy and I live in SW Missouri.

We barbecue outdoors a lot of the summer; besides obvious things like baked beans and other vegetable side dishes, what can I use my crock pot for?

I did have a party and made a crock pot dish for those who did not want grilled meat, that was pretty cool, having a way to give choices. But the crock pot seems so very Fall/Winter to me.

I think I'll experiment with corn on the cob in the crock pot :-) I just learned to do it in the microwave last year. We always need so many ears, would be nice to be able to shuck and put it in the crock pot in water and forget it a few hours and be able to pull out ears as needed.
