I tried baking bread in my crock pot once and it didn't turn out so well...
I made a pork loin a few days ago that was really easy.  Just 12-13 sprinkles or worchestershire (sp?) then whatever rub you want

craftylittlemonkey I happen to have a copy of this recipe here at work because I've brought it to potlucks (always a homerun, there's never any left to take home!), and a few coworkers wanted it as well. I scanned the recipe it into a picture file, I hope you can read it okay and maybe even print it. Here ya go, enjoy!! Don't forget the ice cream, it takes this cake to a whole other level! Grin

That is a different dump cake than I make, a little similar but I never knew you could make in the crockpot.

I so need to make the Hawaiian pork. We make pulled pork for sammies..

I love making a pot of pinto beans in the winter time.

I wondered about the bread thing too. I may have to try it and see what happens. Did it just not rise?

My crockpot is my 3rd most beloved small kitchen appliance (behind the electric skillet and Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer). I make pulled pork with our favorite bbq rub in it and it makes the house smell so yummy! I use boneless pork ribs (country style), rub with your favorite rub, add about 1/4 cup of cider vinegar and 1/4 cup of water, cook on low temp for about 8 hours. Serve on buns! dang it! Now I'm hungry!

I've made desserts, soups, stews, roasts (still trying to figure this one out) and corned beef in it. I broke the lid about 6 years ago and use a double layer of foil on it. I've been tempted to try the liners but I had very bad luck with the oven bags a few years ago (can we say no turkey for Thanksgiving that year Cry) so am very skittish when trying any type of liner besides foil.

I have been putting together make ahead freezer meals lately for my crockpot. It is so helpful when I just want to not deal with cooking.

We use beer or soda on our roast to make it tender. Sometimes I brown it before putting it in the crockpot, but most of the time, I'm super lazy and just throw it in.

I've made an amazing baked potato soup that is the easiest ever. I need to find the recipe and I'll post it for you guys.

The bread rose but it stuck like crazy to the parchment paper which was weird and it was really doughy...  I just use my cast iron pot for bread now...

Here is a link to my Crock Pot Pinterest page http://www.pinterest.com/lindyv321/yummy-in-the-crock-pot/

Has anyone tried mac & cheese?

Oh yeah, we also use our crock pot to keep mashed potatoes warm on Thanksgiving!

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

This is a fantastic idea. Sadly, the only thing I've used my crock pot for was to dye wool with Kool-Aid. But it worked great! I'm keeping my eye on the recipes here just in case I get the courage to make food in it.

I'm loving this thread! I have some shares, but not the time to share them now: mom's visiting from out of town.

Two things:
1.LisasTeaTime: I know it's not a contest, but I have 3 crock pots and so I win.
2. I have made Lisa's dump cake with a few different types of filling and cake mixes and DAMN, they're good.

The Australian summer is the three months of the year I wouldn't dream of using the crock pot... except that I did our steamed Christmas pudding in it and it was sensational! I'm convinced it is a less steamy, hot and bothersome way to do it than the conventional stove-top boiling.
