Gee, if I'd of dumped it on his head I would of had to clean it up plus he really wasn't meaning to be rude, he knows it's rare for me to actually cook something that really can be eaten. DH is mostly the cook and if anyone deserves to have something dumped on his head it's probably him because he DOES make rude comments about my cooking and I think he's told everyone we know that I am the only person in the world who actually knows 101 ways to cook hamburger. He knew when we got married I couldn't cook so why change now!!

My husband challenged me to find a way to make a potato soup in the crock pot. This is what I came up with and my family loves it!

Potatoes (about a third of the crockpot)
Water (enough to cover the potatoes)
chicken bouillon cubes (about 3 or 4)
onions cut as desired
celery chopped
fried bacon and its grease
cajun creole seasoning (I add this to nearly everything I cook )
1 can of evaporated milk (I use fat free--not that it helps)
a handful or so of shredded cheddar (or Mexican blend) cheese


Pour everything except the evaporated milk and cheese into the crockpot and cook on low for 7-8 hours or until the potatoes are cooked. Shortly before serving, add the evaporated milk and cheese and stir until well blended.

This is really good with grilled cheese sandwiches or cheese quesadillas.

One of my favorite chicken recipes is:

Whole chicken
onion
salt and pepper
butter, softened
can of beer or white wine
chicken bullion, powdered

Remove chicken innards, rinse with cold water and pat dry.
Season cavity with salt and pepper
place whole onion, skin removed, in cavity.
Coat chicken skin with layer or butter
Place in crock pot and sprinkle with bullion. Pour beer or wine over top
Cook on low 8 hours

Will fall off the bone when you are done

Pork chops and stuffing
I just made this and it's pretty good.

4 or 5 pork chops
flour mixed with seasonings, salt, pepper and garlic powder
brown in olive oil
put into the crockpot
add one can of beef broth and a couple of cans of water
cook for an hour or so, add water if it becomes dry.
Add the seasoning packet from pork chop & stuffing helper
Add the gravy mix packet
Add water if necessary.
cook another few hours
add the stuffing and cook a little while longer
yum
I started the chops off on high and reduce to low after an hour, and cooked like that for about 3 or four more hours, then on keep warm when it was done.

Serve with steamed cabbage and carrots.

Watch out for the bones if your chops are not boneless.

Not only do I want to win, I also do not want to lose.

We had the 3 envelope roast again tonight. DH made it and put way to much water in the pot so it didn't come out very good.

Gotta try the pot roast (3 envelope one) recipe. Which types of beef do you think are the best cut? I've used London Broil for pot roast and chuck steak. Anyone else have a better cut? We love pot roast and need a big slice. Thanks for any help. Grace

In my Sunday paper I saw a coupon for a new product from the makers of Hamburger Helper...I think it was called Slow Cooker Helper (I could be wrong about the name, I have lost the coupon.) I ADORE Hamburger Helper. Has anyone tried this new Slow Cooker Helper stuff yet???

Haven't tried it yet, but saw it at the store tonight. Doesn't look like they have a wide variety yet (just 2 or3 varieties at my grocery store), but I hope this takes off, so they will expand

Haven't tried the hamburger helper yet either, but I tried the New Banquet crockpot stuff. I hate Banquet meals so I was skeptical, but, I tried the red potatoe soup one and it was excellent. Didn't make alot though. Would be perfect for a couple or 3 people and maybe 4 with 2 small kids, but for a family of 6 with 3 boys, not nearly enough, but VERY TASTY!!!!!

Crockpot Beef Brisket With Barbecue Sauce
Digging out some of my fave Crock Pot recipes.....also making this a sticky because it is Winter. To me, Winter and meals cooked in the Crock Pot just seem to go together.


Crockpot Beef Brisket With Barbecue Sauce (This is a GREAT ONE)


3/4 cup water
1/4 cup worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 teaspoon beef bouillon granules
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
2 garlic clove; minced
2 1/2 lb fresh beef brisket
1/2 cup ketchup
2 tablespoon brown sugar
2 tablespoon butter or margarine

For cooking liquid, in a bowl combine water, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, bouillion granules, mustard, chili powder, red pepper, and garlic; reserve 1/2 cup liquid for sauce. Trim fat from brisket. If necessary, cut brisket to fit into cooker; place in a 3 1/2 or 4-quart crockery cooker. Pour remaining liquid over brisket. Cover; cook on low-heat setting for 10 to 12 hours or high-heat setting for 5 to 6 hours. For sauce, in a small saucepan combine 1/2 cup reserved liquid, catsup, brown sugar, and margarine. Heat through. Pass sauce with meat.

Crock Pot Sloppy Joes
This one will feed an army of teens. Believe me.

2 onions, med.-chopped
1 green pepper, seeded-chopped
2 can tomato sauce (8 oz)
1 can water (8 oz.)
2 pkg sloppy joe seasoning

Brown beef in skillet, pour into colander, rinse well, put meat into crock-pot, add onions, green pepper, tomato sauce, and water. Stir thoroughly, add salt to taste. Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours, or on high for 5 hours. If too liquid, uncover and set on high for 30 minutes.
