    I gave away my crockpots. Even tried several different recipes, but regardless of what it was, to us, it all tasted the same. What do you guys do different?

    I use a lot of herbs, always have, Tonight I made jasmine rice with chives and bacon . one part rice, 2 parts water, a tablespoon of chives per cup of rice, and bacon bits to taste. Tomorrow, I'll add a little cheese to it. I'll do beans or lentils in the crockpot to have with it. The next night, some jarred salsa will go in.

    I know people who use only onions and garlic to season anything they cook, and it all tastes the same. What were you cooking?

    moonpi-I tried chicken, pork, beef and followed the recipes exactly, but it didn't matter what kind of meat or seasonings, it all tasted the same.

    My dinner tonight was supposed to be a crockpot recipe (chicken stew), but ran out of time. The recipe came off the back of a Lipton Soup Box. So, instead of putting it all in the crock, I just put it on the stove. Came out great! Had to do some adjustments to it, but the meat (chicken) was so tender. No clue what I did to it to make it that way either. lol
    Since Courtney wasn't feeling well and just had toast and hubby ate on the ship, guess what we are having for dinner tomorrow? Yup! LEFTOVERS!! :) Just need to pull out the bread machine to make a loaf of bread to go with it.

    I don't use my crockpot often, mostly in the winter. I'll have to dust it off and try some of these recipes. It will be easy with working and having two kids... prepare it in the morning and I won't have much to clean up when it is done cooking... more time to spend with my kids at night!

    The maker of the turkey bags also makes crockpot liner bags . Makes for real fast, easy clean-up. Pam W.

    I've actually prepared it at night, stuck it in the fridge, then when I get up, I take it out and sit it on the counter to warm a bit. Then, once I am dressed and showered, I'd put it in the holder, turn it on and forget it.

    That is a great idea! I bet it tastes the same too. I love those liners too... they work especially well for stews! Then you just throw out and forget!
