Hey does anybody know a Recipes book for SLOW COOKING?
I have just made pot roast, and chicken

Check out the "Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook" -- but, and I must make this perfectly clear, FROM THE LIBRARY. Do not buy it until you're certain you'll use it. It has some good starting points, but none of the recipes have been tested by the editors, and it's astoundingly repetitive (eight or a dozen variants on beef pot roast made with cream of mushroom soup, at least as many of the onion-soupmix variant, half a dozen version of pork-chops-and-sauerkraut).

Southern Living also has a slow-cooker cookbook that I have never made a bad meal out of. All tasty, homey recipes.

I like all of Beth Hensberger's slow cooker cookbooks, "Not your Mother's...." There are no recipes using canned soup, which most of the other slow cooker cookbooks rely on. Everything I've made has been terrific.

Check food.com. You can adapt most of your own recipes to the slow cooker. You'll probably have to use less liquid,and beans will work best if at least half cooked,but I just use my own regular recipes. And I'll go to the library and get some of these cookbooks for inspiration!

I recomend Slow Cooker Revolution out to be my favorite slow cooker cookbook out of the several that i own. I find that I can almost always rely on ATK for recipes,tips and so on. The only thing that I do not rely on ATK is for asian cooking. (^o^)

Crockery Cookbook (Sunset Cookery Books). This is an old one but my favorite above all other crock pot cookbooks. I have a collection of Sunset cookbooks and they are all very good. I like this crockery book because the recipes aren't just a collection of soups and stews as most others are. It has many different types of recipes like variations of beef brisket, short ribs, turkey, chicken, vegetarian dishes and desserts like bread pudding and poached pears. And none of them call for any canned soup. It's a wonderful cookbook. I agree with S.C. Mitchell's comments about the "Fix it and Forget it" books. I own one of them and there is a lot of repetition. All of the recipes in them are sent in by home cooks and most of the recipes are good. But how many recipes do you need for scalloped potatoes? In the version I have, there are close to a dozen of them.
I used to only use my crock pot during the colder months but have learned to use it year round, especially in the warmer months when I don't want to heat up the house with the oven on for hours.
