I was trying to come up with a shredded chicken to use in burritos. However, this came out more like a stew or chili. Still tastes fantastic!

So, I have to use up my okra, but don't have time to stand over a pot. Here is a slow-cooker version of gumbo. I didn't have any celery, so I put zucchini in instead.

Taking one of my childhood favorites and translating it into a crockpot dish. I never have time to put this together and bake it, so using the crockpot saves me the time.

I am always looking for recipes that taste like my favorite foods, but in the convenience of the crockpot. Pasta alla Norma is a recipe that I got from an Italian postdoc I worked with. This recipe has the same flavors!

This is a soup mix that I received for Christmas. No Nutritional information, so I had to measure the beans and go from there.

I love when I can get buffalo roasts for stew. Buffalo is the leanest meat you can buy and it has the added benefits of high iron content and high protein content. Cooking it in a slow cooker in liquid such as stew gives you a rich flavorful and healthy meal!

The original recipe is from BetterRecipes.com but calls for ground beef. We really prefer bison and it is leaner and better for you.
