I got a crockpot as a gift and am dying to use it. Problem: I am an OK cook, but no chef, and I have never used a crockpot. What would be a good recipe to start with and what are the common mistakes to avoid?

I have looked at a bunch of recipes and stuff, but thought that some others' experience would be a good start. I like pretty much all foods, but would like to go with a beefy type of meal first off with vegetables, like a stew. Additionally, something easy that I am not bound to mess up would be nice.
Also, are there things I should know about this new crockpot that I should not
do? It is a Proctor Silex 33275
. It is not an fancy model, so there are limited options when cooking.
