My mom gave me a crockpot a few years ago that she had never used. I finally got around to using it. One Sunday when we were planning to be home for hours, I pulled a random recipe for chicken and veggies off a website and away we went.

I love the ease of it. Just throw everything into the pot and let it sit for hours. The recipe said that it should take an hour to an hour and a half to cook. At two hours, our veggies were still not done and we were starving.

So we dug into the chicken (which was cooked just fine) and half-cooked vegetables. And now we know that our crockpot takes a little more time than usual to cook things. Do you have any favorite crockpot recipes?
