Crock Pot Cooking

I know that there are cookbooks dedicated to the art of crockpot cooking, especially as the weather turns warmer.

My question is, does anyone REALLY crock pot cook? Other than making a roast, what types of things do you make in a crock  pot if you do cook with it?

I use my crockpot all the time.  I have a round one and an oval one.   I make chili, soups, pork chops, barbecues, Whole chickens, roast, cakes, meatballs, sausage.

 I make all sorts of things in my crockpot and use it more than my oven. About the only thing I haven't tried yet is dessert, but I just saw a recipe for slow cooker cheesecake and I *have* to try that!

I love my crockpot, but tend to stick to things like roasts, ribs, chicken.  I've made meatloaf in it and that was pretty tasty too.

Lasagna? Really!!!! How do you do that. It takes me forever to make a traditional lasagna. I would love to know how you do it.

I have done the shredded chicken tacos before, but it never occured to me to make chicken and dumplings this way.
