I love my slow cooker. I don't use it quite as often as I did when my children were growing up though. I am now retired Report

I agree with Jeffgirl about the pork chops with apple-cranberry stuffing. That is right up our menu-plan alley. For those who wish for vegetarian versions, if I'm not mistaken the internet is full of options for replacing flesh with plant proteins in this recipes. I know it to be so actually, because I've even done the opposite... looking for flesh to replace plant-proteins in recipes. Report

Thanks! Report
Gonna check out the Ky Burgoo as I haven't cooked rabbit for a while. Many people get squeamish but there are different breeds of rabbits for fur, meat or as pet bunnies. That why Europeans eat horse. I wouldn't eat bugs but animals yes. Translation: Vegetarian = native word for "lousy hunter" Report
is a Actifry Tefal slow cooker ideal? Report
Thanks for the suggestions Report
they look good thanks Report
Thank you, Delish! Report
I'm looking forward to trying these recipes especially the pork chops with apple-cranberry stuffing, and the turkey with wild rice dish! Report
When living up North with cold weather I was always using a crock pot. Now in the South I still find reasons to use it. Pulled chicken, pulled pork, pot roast, soups stews....There's no end. HAPPY COOKING ! ! ! Report
I've just purchased a slow cooker, so these recipes will come in handy. They all look delicious so I think I'll try them all. Report
I'm cooking some black-eyed peas in the crockpot today. I do use salt pork but you can cook them with seasonings (onions, garlic, bell pepper and celery) and it makes a great vegetarian dish. You can do this with just about any beans or peas. I make it a main dish by serving them over rice. Being a Southern gal, I will cook cornbread to go with it. Whatever you cook, remember to add love. You can't go wrong when you add that. Report
Meat-free recipes, please!!! Report
looks yummy, especially with the fall weather setting in!!! Report
I agree with the others. Why isn't there even one vegetarian dish??? Report
Why no vegetarian recipes?!?! Report
I love using the slow cooker but am disappointed that of 7 suggested recipes that there isn't even a single offering of a vegetarian option. Report
saves a lot of time cooking and great during winter season Report
Slow cooking is the ticket for an easy dinner after a long day at work. I put it in before leaving in the morning and it is ready when hubby and I get home. Report
Since I hate to cook after raising five children, the SLOW COOKER certainly is my love, especially in the cold weather. Report
After reading these recipes, I might have to buy a crock pot! Report
These all look yummy especially the slow cooker pork chops with apple-cranberry stuffing. Also the slow cooked BBQ pulled pork roast. I think my husband would really like the pork chops with apple-cranberry stuffing. Report
