I would simply like to see more slow cooker recipes. I have a minor kidney problem, & as a result, I learned to cook from scratch, & now make great low sodium meals in the slow cooker. For someone who bought all their groceries from the frozen section of the supermarket, I'm doing OK. Now I buy all my food fresh & use salt substitues. I do slow cooker, stir fry, blender, fondue, etc. Needless to say, my number of friends in the condominium where I live has increased dramatically! I also weigh the same now as I did in University, all due to the kidney wake-up call.

My recipe box is set-up with a ‘Slow/Pressure Cookers’ folder, and has 75 recipes in it. About 90% of these are slow cooker. Sometimes the title of a recipe does not say slow cooker but will state it elsewhere. This link gives you 815 slow cooker recipes . . . http://allrecipes.com/recipes/main-dish/slow-cooker/ViewAll.aspx *** this link gives you 41 more . . . http://allrecipes.com/recipes/everyday-cooking/vegetarian/slow-cooker/ViewAll.aspx *** This link may also be helpful . . . http://allrecipes.com/recipes/main-dish/slow-cooker/main.aspx . . . If you go to ‘The Buzz’ (forum), and post ‘Request a Recipe’ specifying what kind of slow cooker recipes your looking for, you’re like to get many more than you can make. Good luck.

Like Joe, I have a slow cooker folder which is perfect for those busy times. There are many recipes in AR that can be tweaked to be healthier. I'm so glad your are doing ok and cooking healthy. Please take care. Healthy cooking and Happy Holidays!

Most one dish meal recipes can be adapted for the slow cooker. Just remember, veggies on the bottom, meat on top, and cut the liquid in HALF.

About Me
I am a retired college professor & pro jazz musician. I taught political science for 15 yrs. ar the U. of Washington; then another 14 at McGill U. in Montreal. I gigged at night in both cities, & after I retired to come home to Sydney, N.S. after my mother died, & then began to play gigs in Europe & the Scandinavian countries mostly. I have also toured in Japan, China, Australia, even Africa. I am now 70 & cannot gig anymore (guitar) because of opsteoarthritis in my fingers. I met my wife when I was doing a gig in Amsterdam. Mirewille is from France (Paris), is 15 yrs. younger than I, & we winter at her villa in the south of France (Aquitaine....wine country). We go tro Monaco where I watch the clay court tennis, & I play poker. I now write a political blog that is picked up by the online newsletters.
My favorite things to cook
pot roast, soups, veggie dishes, omelets I make up my self using the blender, curried dishes
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother was an excellent cook. Mostly meat & potatoes, but also great lasagna, Jewish dishes, etc.
My cooking triumphs
Nothing really yet, but I did a stir fry in the wok that everyone thoughT WAS WONDERFUL. I must admit, it was delicious.
My cooking tragedies
Just one so far....an overcooked pot roast in the slow cooker.
