Can anyone recommend a good one? I have the Crock-Pot brand one. So far, I've made 2 recipes. One, the dog wouldn't even eat, one (a beef & mushroom stew) was pretty good but a bit bland.

Thanks!

Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbook is excellent. The recipes use whole ingredients (not a can of this and a package of that). Only drawback is no pictures in the book, but it's really easy to imagine how yummy the recipes are.

I also have Not Your Mother's... I got it at Costco recently so if you are a member you might want to look for it on your next visit.

Also have the Cooking Light slow cooker cookbook and have made a few things from it. It generally has "whole foods" in it as well but not always.

I use "Fresh From the Vegetarian Slow Cooker" a couple times a week. Even if you're not veg*n, I'm sure you would find some recipes in it.

another vote for "Not your Mother's..." It has really GOOD meals in it. My husband used to HATE anything cooked in the crock pot, but has been won over by the recipes in this book!

Not your mothers...

I like pretty much all the lamb dishes, the first pot roast in the chapter, the morrocan chicken, the turkey drumsticks

Cover and bake? Anything I've tried is great. I know that's not very helpful, but it's really true. THe mac and cheese is pretty darned good, turkey tetrazinni (i KNOW I spelled that wrong), guiness stew...it's all good.

Oh, and the ribs, and several pork dishes in NYMSCC are great, too.
