Recipes drawn from "The Gourmet Slow Cooker" can be found here http://bit.ly/gLDPcK on Epicurious.com. And this Minestrone from AOL's KitchenDaily also looks tasty: http://aol.it/hndubI Must admit I haven't hauled out the slow cooker in a while, though...

My best advice is also to look for recipes that include the extra step of browning, sauteeing, carmelizing - yes, you have to wash an extra pan, but that will help maximize flavor and vary the texture of your slow cooker dishes which can end up being similar in terms of texture because they often cook in the same way (a braise). This chicken and artichoke dish was the first thing I ever made in the slow cooker, and it remains a high-water mark for me: http://southernfood.about...
