I was just given a Cuisenart Slo Cooker. Is there a way to produce good food in such a device besides stews and maybe soups? Thanks!

Yes - I'm sure there are many other uses but I use mine for pulled pork, preparing ribs prior to grilling, meatball appetizers, and coq au vin.

I'm sure your Cuisenart came with a recipe book/booklet. In it, there should be a conversion chart to adapt recipes from your favorite oven or stove top cook book. One can make almost anything in a slow cooker, including desserts!! You could also purchase slow cooker cookbooks.

Slow cooked ragu is great. I make duck ragu in mine often. I use it to cook osso bucco, short ribs, pot roast and beef cheeks as well.

I was just told about two great sites.
Www.williams-Sonoma.com and search slow cooker, tons of great recipes. I just made the cassoulet. It was amazing!
Www.tastykitchen.com and search slow cooker. Lots of good choices.

You can use it to cook fruit butters, if you're a canner. Here's one resource: http://easteuropeanfood...

You can use it as a bean cooker, starting with dried beans. Soak and cook the beans in the pot, add sauce ingredients when the beans are ready. (Look for a recipe for specifics.)
Make mulled apple cider or cranberry juice -- add the liquids and the spices, let it steep while it heats. To my taste it's so sweet no sugar is needed.
