Yeah, I used it alot when I had one. It broke on my move from California to Georgia. I should get another one...

Anyway, I'll get started on the recipes. I'll do a separate post for each one so you don't get confused.

Vegetable Soup


Use 1-2 large cans of tomatoes and 2-3 bouillon cubes for broth -- add water as needed.

If you want this to be quick, add frozen mixed vegetables (corn, peas, beans) or individual frozen vegetables.

Add one chopped onion

Add sliced carrots

Add 1-2 peeled and chopped potatoes

Cook 4-6 hours on high or longer on low

Salt and pepper to taste

These recipes were given to me by my mom. I have no idea where she got them. However, you'll notice that after awhile they kinda taste the same -- maybe because she always uses a tomato base!

Anyway, they're really easy and quick -- esp. the chicken salsa!!

Anne has that great new site:

www.mycrock.com

AND:

www.souplovers.com

AND:

www.dessert-recipes.org

****Reminder to all here, that if ANYONE has some great recipes they can post on her websites--it would be a great help to her, I am sure!


--I LOVE crockpot recipes--and we DO use ours too!!

**SCALLOPED POTATOES AND HAM, AuGRATIN**

1/2 teaspoon of Pepper (or to taste)
1 cup Grated Cheddar
