need recipes

My stove is broken and it may be awhile before we can get a new one. Anyone have any easy recipes for the crock pot? I can make pot roast, chili, and blackeye peas- would like to try some different ones. Any suggestions would be so appreciated.

  • Baked Beans

    * 1 lb. dry navy beans (I've also used black-eye peas or great northern beans)
    * 6 cups water
    * 1 small onion, chopped
    * 3/4 c. ketchup
    * 3/4 c. brown sugar
    * 3/4 - 1 c. water
    * 1 tsp. dry mustard
    * 2 Tbsp. molasses
    * 1 tsp. salt

    Soak beans in water overnight in large pot. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, simmer until soft, about 1 1/2 hours. Drain and discard water. Mix together all ingredients in crock pot. Cover and cook on low 10 to 12 hours.

    Note: I often soak the beans the day before, cook them and then cook in crock pot overnight.

    Note: I sometimes add sliced hot dogs or ham to the mixture. When I do this I reduce the salt to 1/2 tsp.

  • How about dessert?

    ! box cake mix
    1 can (12 oz) regular soda (not diet)

    Spray inside of 3 1/2 qt crockpot with cooking spray. Stir soda into cake mix until just blended; pour into crockpot. Cook on low 2 1/2 to 4 hours.

    I like lemon cake mix with sprite; white cake mix with orange soda, spice cake with ginger ale or Dr. Pepper.
