i'm waiting in line for this as well! All this sounds so good, I've been experimenting with the crockpot but would love a good recipe or two.

ooh ooh, i make a lot of stuff in my crockpot. i love it. i have a few recipes too. i'm at my mom's for the holidays, but i'll post when i get the chance.
really easy bean dip that is amazing, but sounds kinda gross:
canned refried bean, cream cheese, and velveta cheese.
for a large pot its something like 2 cans of beans, two blocks of cream cheese, and one block velveta. i promise its good.
also, the easiest thing you can do is dry rub on whole chickens. you can't really mess it up and i've used toooons of different seasonings. paprika, onion and garlic powder, cayan pepper, salt and pepper rubbed on the outside, under the skin and in the cavity... chop an onion and put half in pot and half in cavity. DELISH!
happy eating. i'll post some actual recipes and measurements later if any of you still want.
