Hey guys. I was wondering if you could give me the basics of how to use a crock pot? I checked out the archives and found a few recipes, but I'd really like to know just how one uses a crock pot in general. That being said, if anyone has any really awesome tried and true crock pot recipes they'd like to share, those would be appreciated too. :) I like pretty much anything except lentils, mushrooms, and recipes with a whole lot of eggplant, tomato, or bell pepper.
