    I think ragu bolognese would be just the right dish for the crock-pot.

  7. Carol says:

    I’d like to try rice pudding

  13. Sarah Cooper says:

    My favourite recipe to do in the slow cooker is Spaghetti Bolognese as the it makes the mince so much more tender. But my secret is not to use a tin of chopped tomatoes but a punnet of cherry tomatoes – it makes it so much sweeter and tastier!

  14. Just a great casserole. Like my mum used to make :)

  16. I dont have a crockpot but Ive been informed roast chicken in it is amazing! So would love to try that out! That or a cake!

  17. My favourite crock pot recipe is a ginger soy beef dish made with beef shin which is really economical and full of flavour. Can be served with rice or noodles.

  18. Rachel says:

    I love to cook soups in my slow cooker…but perhaps that is because its the only thing I know how to cook in it :/

  19. Pippa says:

    I am terribly unkind to my slow cooker – it sits on the side, getting dusty… so looking forward to some more inspiration to dust it off and get cooking!

  20. @bluebearwood says:

    Don’t have any favourite recipes as we tend to ad lib a bit but love that the meat is so tender which my kids love. Lamb shank goes down well
