Chicken salad sandwiches; chili; grilled cheese; panini sandwiches.

What about using a crock.....do you have one?  You can make oven-baked foods in your crock instead (roasted chicken, stuffed green peppers, baked potatoes, cabbage rolls, meatloaf....cake).

Thanks for sharing that link found this recipe and can't wait to try it, may be a while 'cuz I just went grocery shopping and need most ingredients - but will definitely try in the summer 'cuz I really do not want to invest in an ice cream maker -  But I still have to get a blender, but that's ok, I can find one that's not really expensive. This sounds deliciously awesome!!!

Yes i have a crock pot. Forgot to mention that. It got dented while we were moving a couple years back. I hope it still works. I.have never used it. I also have another bowl that can be heated. I think it is some type of warmer. It plugs into the wall like a crockpot. There is nothing wrong with it.
