Carmelized onions

6 onions sliced. 2-3tb olive oil. Cook on high over night. Use in eggs, or on pizza...they also freeze fairly well.

Fall chicken
3 apples peeled cored and quartered
3 onion peeled and quartered
6 chicken pieces (I usually use boneless skinless chicken breasts but you can use whatever really)
salt pepper
and a palmfull of dried thyme (1.5tb maybe??)
1/2 cup of water.

Cook on high for 4-5 hours or low 8-10 hours.

Do the apples in that chicken make it really sweet? I'm trying to branch out buy my kids shy away from anything that makes meat sweet, like BBQ sauce.

The onions and apples really go well together kind of balances everything. And you're cooking the chicken ON TOP of the onion and apple so the chicken is more "essence" than coated....if that makes sense...

You can definitely use less apple for a more savory flavor.

Normally I would shy away from mixing fruit and meat, too. A good friend of mine grew up with this recipe, her family raves about it, and I tried it last night:

-in the clrockpot, mix equal amounts of brown sugar and apple juice (I did half the sugar because I ran out and the sauce was plenty sweet and delicious)
-add 2 pork loins, mostly defrosted from the freezer and then pan seared
-the liquid should come at least half way up the side of the meat, but does not need to cover
-I cooked for 5 hours on high, but it can be left all day on low.
-before serving make a gravy with the sauce while the meat rests
-serve with mashed potoatoes

My eldest told me that she prefers a savory gravy, but everyone in the family enjoyed this meal. I'm typically not a big fan of pork or potatoes, but I will be making this again.

boneless pork roast, 2 apples, 2 sweet potatoes. cut up apples and s.p. and put on the bottom. sprinkle with cinn and brown sugar and tabs of butter. put roast on top (season with salt and pepper and whatever else you like) cook on low all day, when done pull roast out and then mash the apples and s.p. together.


rice and beans--2 c brown rice, 1 c black beans (i used dried beans but soak them the night before- you can't put them in without soaking) 6 c water, 1 large can of tomatoes, seasoning (lime juice, salt, cilarntro) cook on high for 6 hours (or if you use canned beans put on low all day)

i make beef strog. too, but it is much more involved then the above one.

baked potato soup is also good. cut up some potatoes pour in some chix stock, season. cook on low all day. then at mash/blend it up ( i usually scoop a couple chunks out before mashing and then put them back in so that i have something to chew) and serve at the table with sour cream, cheese, and bacon or croutons

Some fairly easy ones that my family loves... Sorry if these are repeats, but we have to head out in a few minutes... change all amounts to what you need... we generally double.

"Simply Delicious Pork"
1.5lbs boneless pork loin or chops
4 medium yellow delicious apples sliced
3 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt

place pork in crockpot, cover with apples. Combine spices in a small bowl and sprinkle over apples. Cover and cook on low 6-8 hours.

---------------------------------------------------------

Harvest Ham Supper

6 carrots sliced in half lengthwise (I just cut mine into chunks)
3 sweet potatoes sliced in half
1.5lbs boneless ham
1 cup maple syrup

place carrots and potatoes in bottom and ham on top, pour syrup over ham and veggies. Cook on low 6-8 hours.

----------------------------------------------------

Old world chicken and veggies

1 Tbsp dried oregano
1tsp salt, divided
1tsp paprika
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 medium green peppers cut into strips
1 small yellow onion thinly sliced
1 cut up whole chicken (3lbs)
1/3 cup ketchup

combine oregano, 1/2 salt, paprika, garlic powder, and black pepper in small bowl, mix well. Place bell peppers and onion in slow cooker. Top with chicken. sprinkle with oregano mixture. Cook on low 8 hours or high 4 hours. Then stir in ketchup and 1/2 tsp salt and let cook a bit longer.

------------------------------------------------------

kat's slow chicken

3lbs of chicken
1 jar pasta sauce
1med onion sliced
1 med bell pepper sliced
4 carrots cut up
1 rib of celery cut up
4 cloves of garlic minced
1/2 tsp salt
2 Tbsp to 1/4 cup water divided
1 to 2 Tbsp cornstarch

combine all ingredients except water and cornstarch in slow cooker. Cover and cook on low 6-8 hours. Before serving combine 2tbsp water and 1tbsp cornstarch in small bowl. Stir until smooth. Add to slow cooker. Cook on high an additional 15 minutes or until mixture thickens. (really good with mashed potatoes)

----------------------------------------------------------

Vegetarian Lasagna (Awesome! but time consuming to prep... I'm assuming you could pre-prep some of the things and it would make it easier)

1 small eggplant, sliced
1 med zucchini, sliced
1/2 tsp salt
2 TBSP olive oil, divided
1TBSP butter
8 oz mushrooms, sliced (we don't use these)
1 small onion, diced
1 can (26oz) pasta sauce
1tsp dried basil
1tsp dried oregano
2 cups ricotta cheese
1/5 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 cup grated parmesan cheese, divided
1 package whole wheat lasagna noodles, cooked and drained (I don't precook mine)

-Sprinkle eggplant with salt, let sit 10-15 minutes. Rinse and pat dry; brush with olive oil. Brown on both sides in medium skillet over medium heat. Set aside.
-Heat remaining olive oil and butter in same skillet over medium heat; cook and stir mushrooms and onion until softened. Stir in pasta sauce, basil and oregano. Set aside
-Combine ricotta, Monterey Jack, and 1/2 cup parm cheese in medium bowl. Set aside
- Spread 1/3 sauce mix in bottom of slow cooker. Layer with 1/3 lasagna noodles, 1/2 eggplant, 1/2 cheese mixture. Repeat layers once. For last layer, use remaining 1/3 lasagna noodles, zucchini, remaining 1/3 sauce mixture and top with remaining 1/2 cup parmesan.
-Cover; cook on low 6 hours (takes mine about 4 normally) Let sit 15 minutes before serving.

Right now I have a very simple soup cooking in the crockpot: Salsa Blackbean Soup

1 car of salsa (your choice of hotness)
1 large can of black beans, drained
1 can of corn, drained
1 carton of veg. or chicken broth

Pour it all in, let it cook for a couple hours. I like to have it w/cornbread & a salad. You could even add some chicken to the crockpot if you wanted to hearty it up. That of course would add to the cooking time.
