Soon as the weather gets nice and cold I bring out the slow cooker. There is something great about coming in the house after a cold winter walk to the smell of stew cooking. One site I found especially useful for slow cooker recipes is “The Year of Crockpotting”. This blog came about last year when a woman had a New Years resolution to use her crockpot every day. She posted each recipe on her blog. And yes, she finished the whole year.
Most people would stop at a year, but not “The Crockpot Lady”. She said that she will continue to post this year with tips and other crockpot information.
Her current posting is especially relevant for me. She posted suggestions on how to use her crockpot recipes and have a healthy diet. http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/2009/01/crockpot-diet.html
Are you interested in reading even more on slow cooking? Diabetes Self Management decided to post about slow cookers recently too. Here is a link to their latest blog: http://www.diabetesselfmanagement.com/blog/Amy_Campbell/Slow_Cookers_A_Must_Have_for_Healthy_Eating
Those two links should give you lots of links for recipes, but it you would prefer to own a book, here are a couple:
- Fix-It and Forget-It Diabetic Cookbook: Slow-Cooker Favorites to Include Everyone!
- Best Diabetes Slow Cooker Recipes
Do you use a crockpot/slow cooker? What are your favorite recipes?

I’ve been looking at alot of different good recipes. Thank you.
Thanks very much for that. I was looking for a filling stew recipe to get me through the christmas time, and this looks great. I found an entire stew recipes site here too that seems to have tons of ideas, maybe your readers can get some more inspiration there. Anyway, thanks, I will bookmark and read more another time 😉
