Something I love making in a slow cooker is a pork shoulder. I usually put a spicy dry rub on, throw some onions and savory additions and a beer in there. Let it cook until the shoulder falls apart.

Eat it straight up, with bbq sauce, in a taco or quesadilla, on a sandwich. Basically, it makes an amazing dinner and many, many versatile, delicious leftovers.

I make a ragu using sliced Italian sausage (lightly browned), chopped onions (also lightly cooked), good canned tomatoes, a big handful of mushrooms, a splash of wine (white or red . . . whatever's handy), a glob of tomato paste if I have some leftover from another dish, some garlic and a touch of dried oregano. If I have porcini, they go in, too. I don't bother to re-hydrate. Cook on low all day. If you can lift the lid a few times to let out some steam, do so. Stir in some chopped fresh parsley 30 minutes before serving, if you can. Serve over polenta with some sauteed zucchini (to which I add a touch of oregano). A favorite "every day" dinner here. I also make this cooking it on the high setting for 3 hours or so. ;o) P.S. I often pre-prep for something like this by cooking the onions and the sausage a few nights before, when I'm cooking onions for another dish. I store the onions and sausages together in a Pyrex storage box and voila! Ready to go when putting together the ragu.

If you go to the top right of this page you will see a box that says search recipes. Type in slow cooker and you will find over 20 slow cooker recipes. Although I don't have a slow cooker, the recipes have me interested in purchasing one. Also Epicurious has a good chicken recipe. http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Proven-al-Chicken-Stew-237289
