The crockpot has to be the best invention ever created. I use mine at least once a week. I can keep a healthy lifestyle and not have to worry about the never ending question..."what's for dinner?" What have I made in my crockpot? I have made: zuppa tuscana (Olive Garden healthier knockoff), turkey chili, potato soup, pork and beef potroast and the list goes on and on. Absolutely love it!
