 I'm always looking for new recipes.  I get tired of having the same thing.  Some good sites are allrecipes.com and cooks.com.  Tangleballlover (a member here) has a recipe blog and I've made a few of her's and they are really good.  I have it saved to my favorites on my home computer, so I'll get it tonight when I get home and post it!

 Ive got a good crockpot one that works well with a roast or pork tender loin.

Dice up some potatoes, onion, celery, and use baby carrtos. Coat the bottom of the crockpot with them, put the roast on top. mix together a can of cream of mushroom soup and Lipton's onion soup mix in a abowl and spread over your meat. and the cover with the rest of your vegi's and cook on low for like 6-8 hours. It turns out pretty good.

I have been searching through allrecipes.com like crazy lately.  That's my favorite site!!  It will at least give you ideas, and you can make your own little recipe box and organize them.  I am horrible at coming up w/ ideas as well.

Anything really in the crockpot is good. I use Allrecipes.com for recipes too, and they have crockpot ones, and regular recipes too.
