Slow Cooker Recipes

I was browsing recipes when I stumbled across a post about baked macaroni cheese over at Cheap is the New Classy - in which Dawn teasingly refers to her "tried and true" recipe for macaroni cheese made in a slow cooker. Now, I grew up making macaroni cheese in the oven, so the idea of a slow cooker recipe really intrigued me. I didn't even know you could cook pasta in the slow cooker. And how do you get the crispy cheese crust on top?

Unfortunately she doesn't seem to have posted it! So in part, this is an appeal for Dawn to please (pretty please) blog the slow cooker recipe as well.

But in fact, I'm only just getting the hang of my slow cooker in general, so I thought my readers might be able to help me out with some recipes.

Although we were given the cooker as a wedding present, I haven't had as much time as I might like to try new things: experimenting with day-long recipes requires a bit more commitment than my usual dabblings. So far I've pretty much only made soups and stews that I'd normally cook slowly on the hob. I remember my mum putting rice pudding on overnight, for a warming winter breakfast, so I'm planning to try that too.

Meanwhile, I'd love it if you'd share your favourite vegetarian or vegan recipe for the slow cooker. Any ideas appreciated, particularly for main dishes that I could set up in the morning ready for dinner. Thanks in advance!

Everything I do in the slow cooker involves meat. I did just get a cookbook of Indian slow cooker recipes to review and there are some vegetarian ones - if any turn out well I'll send them along.

You know what, someone else asked me to post it, too. :) I am so pitiful! I need to get that up so that others can have it! I will try to do this very soon and I will be sure to give you the link. :) I think you will love your slow cooker! It makes life SO much simpler!
