I want succulence, not shoe leather.

CrockpotFilter: "Falling-off-the-bone tender" is cited as a desirable quality in meats prepared in a slow cooker, but I find meat cooked this way to be dry and mushy. What can I do to fix this? [more inside]

Wheatless Crock Pot recipe that doesn't suck?

Any suggestions for a nice meal to serve to dinner guests (four diners total) later this week? But there are catches... 1) We just bought our house, and don't have a stove yet; we have a Crock Pot, a toaster oven, and a microwave. So no meat browning or onion sauteing. 2) The meal must be wheat- and gluten-free. 3) No seafood. We've had pretty limited success with the slow-cooker... recipes sound delicious, but end up tasting like a whole lotta nothin.

We don't want our cooking to be electrifying

Our Proctor Silex crock pot made an unexpected visit to the sink--not just the internal cooking bowl, which is made to be washed, but the electric heating dish, and we're trying to decide whether it's safe to use it again. [more inside]

Crockpot dilemma

Calling all cooks: I was given a 6-quart crockpot by my mother in law -- yay. The problem is that I don't intend to make more than very small batches of food (1-2 qt) at a time. I'm worried that I'll scald or dry out the food by cooking tiny batches in it. Should I get a smaller pot or can I use this one ok? Also as a tagalong question feel free to mention your favorite recipe that you like making in your crockpot.
