I'm looking for good slow cooker recipes.

Nothing spicy, my kids won't eat it. I make pot roast and beef stew all the time. Looking to switch it up.

Many of the stew and roast recipes on this site can be easily converted to the slow cooker. I like Williams-Sonoma's slow cooker recipes; check at their site for some inspiration. I've made 2 recipes here on the site: A Bowl of Red and Secret Ingredient Stew in the slow cooker and good ol' chicken soup.

I've found the Pioneer Woman's Tasty Kitchen site very helpful with slow cookers and I'd also recommend the Williams Sonoma Slow Cooker cookbook. I got the book and the slowcooker as a wedding gift. I stared at it for a while, found it mildly offensive for a bit, but then I got used to it.

I can make some really good soups, stews, pulled pork, and taco meat (carne guisado is really good in the cooker), slow cooked beans. I recently got a mini slow cooker to make my morning oatmeal. works wonderfully.

Cook's Illustrated has a very good new book entitled "The Slow Cooker Revolution." The recipes are explicitly designed for use in a slow cooker.
