    I love making pulled pork sandwiches in the slow cooker. Watching the meat just fall apart after cooking makes me happy, plus they are delicious.

  2. Michelle L.

    I follow you on Twitter. (Apologize if this double-posts…I did it the 1st time between my last 2 comments & now I don’t see it. Weird. LOL)

  3. Vicki Mc

    My favorite dish to make in the crockpot is pulled pork! There’s nothing like slow cooking to make the meat tender and juicy!

  4. Sarah

    My favorite thing to make is some pulled barbeque chicken or pork. I love playing with combinations of sauces and other ingredients to see what you come up with 8 hours later!

  5. I’ve only made a couple things in the crock pot–I think my favorite so far is chicken and biscuits. But I know a lot of people make chili in it and it turns out amazing.

  6. Tiffany Larsen

    My most favorite dish is Crock Pot rice pudding. It is super easy to put together and my kids love it.

    I love when my husband makes pork barbecue or chili in our crockpot. When I use the crockpot, I make an overnight breakfast casserole; especially when we have people visiting. We have a nice hot breakfast in the morning but we can spend all of our time visiting, not cooking!

  9. Ashley

    I love to do the Pioneer Woman’s Pot Roast in the Crock Pot. So easy and easy to forget when I have a long day ahead of me!

    Definitely would have to be any kind of berry cobbler or slow cooker buffalo chicken– two of my favorite foods and I love that they can be made in a crockpot!

    Chilli. In my opinion you Have to cook chilli in one of two things, a crock pot is the best if you really want all of the flavor to pop.

    I love to cook up split chicken breasts in the crock pot all day, then shred it up for chicken salads, chicken tacos, etc.

    I love to make wine & tomato braised chicken. It’s delicious and seems like you’ve been slaving for hours when the crock pot’s done all the work!

  24. Goodness that’s a beautiful Crock Pot! This is hardly a recipe, but I like to put in chicken breasts, a jar of salsa, a can of black beans, and frozen or canned corn. At the end of the day, shred the chicken. You can serve it on rice, in burritos, on potatoes, however makes you happy!

  25. Adrienne Gillespie

    I love the classic pot roast and potatoes – what better thing to come home to after a long day at the office. Comfort food at its best!

  26. Teresa

    My favorite thing to cook in the crock pot is chili- I go for a classic beefy beany spicy chili and fill the pot to the brim!

  27. Tina Larkin

    Shredded Beef. I put a roast in the crockpot, puree 2 cans of rotel and pour it over the roast, add a little salt & pepper and let it cook on low while I’m at work. When I get home, I shred the roast and we can have, tacos, burritos, enchiladas or whatever strikes our fancy. Works great with chicken too. :o)

  29. Kristin

    I love to cook italian beef in the crockpot! I add a head of garlic with the roast and 8 hours later there’s lots of good garlic flavor and the head is all soft and roasty; you can use it as a spread on your sandwich for extra garlic goodness! ๐Ÿ™‚

  30. Amy Schwarz

    My favorite dish to make in my slow cooker is super easy beef tips! One can French onion, one can roasted garlic cream of mushroom soup and 2 pounds chopped beef tips.

  39. Lori C

    Our family life is very busy, so I use my crock pot all the time, but my favorite thing to make is a roasting chicken with veggies. It’s a great way to teach my son how to throw together a few simple ingredients to make a delicious meal without a lot of fuss. By the time he’s ready for college (four years!!!), he’ll have plenty of know-how to feed himself something other than ramen noodles and easy mac.

  40. Gina

    I love doing chicken in the crock-pot at the beginning of the week and then I use it in different recipes for lunch/dinner throughout the week.

  44. Dara

    EVERYTHING, because I’m a) a grad student (aka poor), b) about to graduate (aka writing my dissertation and have no time to cook, and c) a vegan (aka I eat beans, lentils, and rice in every combo imaginable).

  45. Anne
