A New WONDERful Slow Cooker: Giveaway

Wonderbag Giveaway

Do you like to use a slow cooker? Are you ever afraid it will set your house on fire?

My friend, Meredith, doesn’t like her slow cooker because she says everything in it is overcooked and mushy AND she fears leaving an appliance on when she is away from the house.

I have found that I use my slow cooker mostly on the weekends so I can monitor its progress (and use my fire extinguisher if needed).

After Meredith and I had this very serious chat, another buddy, Viola, e-mailed to tell me that she met the CEO of a company (on a plane) that makes something called the “Wonderbag” and Snack Girl should review it.

I got my hands on one (see above) and found myself in slow cooker heaven. Here it is with my dog, Milo.

Milo confused this Wonderbag with a dog bed (as you can see). Dogs can be quite silly. The Wonderbag is a large bag that is filled with little pellets of insulation to keep your pot hot.

First, you put your ingredients in a cast-iron or other type of heavy pot such as this:

This one is a Staub enameled pot that I won in contest. Don’t think that I actually have $350 for a pot (though that would be great).

You bring your recipe ingredients to a boil and let them simmer for about 15 minutes on your stove. Then you place the pot into the Wonderbag and tighten the strap.

You leave it all day (more than four hours) and your food is cooked through. This photo isn’t with the flaming hot cast iron pot if you are wondering if I put my dog in danger. Would I do that?

I left this beef stew in the Wonderbag for about 7 hours and then I had to heat it for about five minutes on the stove to ensure the stew was hot enough to eat.

Why is this better than a traditional slow cooker (the plug in kind)?

  1. You use less energy.
  2. The food is perfectly cooked and not mushy.
  3. If you buy one, they give another one away to a family in Africa.

The carrots and potatoes retained their shape and the meat was tender. Milo and I are totally in love with our Wonderbag (for different reasons of course).

The recipe below is from my book Snack Girl To The Rescue!. This is the beef stew that I make for my family and it has about ½ the amount of beef than a regular beef stew. I bulked it up with potatoes and carrots and my kids don’t even notice the difference.

When you use less meat, you save money, the environment, and you get the chance to eat more vegetables. Hurray!

I did have to change the recipe by adding a cup of water at the start to use the Wonderbag, but it did not effect the taste of the dish.

You can usually find beef round cut into chunks for stew in the meat section of your supermarket. Add some frozen peas at the end and heat for five minutes in the stew to give a splash of green and even more vegetables.

Remove the bay leaves, taste, and season with salt and pepper.

I have a really yummy creamy chicken and wild rice soup recipe that I would love to try with this bag!

Jill on February 11, 2014

Everything, I've never had a problem with anything coming out mushy or overcooked, but I'd still give this idea a try.

Angel on February 11, 2014

My favorite slow cooker recipe is barbecued pulled pork! Yumm

Jessica D on February 11, 2014

Traditional pot roast with potatoes, carrots and onions.

Amy G on February 11, 2014

I can't think of anything I don't love that's been cooked in my crock pot. My only complaint is that I only have one. I treasure my crock pot. What a great invention this Wonderbag. Anything that saves energy and makes my house safer (no spontaneous fires) I am all for.

Jessica on February 11, 2014

BBQ shredded beef to eat over baked potatoes...yum!!

Erica on February 11, 2014

Rotisserie-type chicken with carrots and onions.

Beth B on February 11, 2014

My favorite slow cooker recipe is Cincinatti Chili. It makes the house smell fabulous, especially on a winter day!

Aubre Rice on February 11, 2014

Cuban pork! Marinate overnight in lime juice, orange juice, garlic, cumin & oregano. Pop it in the Crockpot first thing in the morning, and voilà! Delish with brown rice and black beans.

Christi L on February 11, 2014

My favorite is chili cooked all day - ingredients depend on my mood- tomato juice, different types of beans- pinto , garbanzo, northern...whatever I feel like putting in, onions, peppers, chipotle peppers, spinach, corn, mushrooms- whatever veggies I have that sound good that day!

Penny on February 11, 2014

Vegetarian chili!

Carrie Heimkreiter on February 11, 2014

Creamy chicken served over rice. Kid favorite!

Charlotte on February 11, 2014

I love my crock pot, so much so that I have 2 of them. I don't use it every day, but on a busy day it's a lifesaver as dinner is ready pretty much as soon as we get home. I think the key is to set the temperature according to how long it will be on. I've never had anything overcooked or mushy. My newest one (I have a problem with breaking lids every few years) is programmable (because I was not the one to break the lid and someone felt guilty). So I can set for 4,6,8 or 10 hours and it goes to a warm setting when done. I make casseroles, soups, stews and even tried pasta in it (I loved crock pot lasanga, my family? Not so much). With my older one if I am going to be out and it will need to cook for more than 8-10 hours I plug it into a lamp timer to shut it off at 10 hours and it will just slowly cool.

My favorite recipe - I make asian spare ribs in my crock pot. Mmmmmmmm

Gail on February 11, 2014

This is so cool. I wonder if it would work for yogurt?? Lisa, you mentioned that it needed heating for a minute at the end. Can you speak to the food safety issues of long-term temperature and such? Just checking. Looks quite fetching on the dog, I must say.....

Jennie on February 11, 2014

Turkey Breast in the crockpot. It is always perfect and falls off the bone. 2 ingredients...a Turkey breast and onion soup mix.
I actually make my onion soup mix to keep it healthier.

Esta on February 11, 2014

I made the best Hungarian goulash in my slow cooker...a more modern tribute to my Hungarian grandmother...

Jennifer D on February 11, 2014

Love pulled pork or chili

Jasper Powell on February 11, 2014

Chicken Stroganoff.......2 chicken breasts, 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup (reduced fat), 1 packet of Dry French Onion Soup mix, and a tub of light sour cream.... Throw it all in together...(No precooking) and in 5 hours or so...you have an amazing meal that the whole family loves. Serve over rice......:)

Becky on February 11, 2014

Pulled pork with root beer!

Jan Mayheu on February 11, 2014

Aloha chicken! I couldn't survive without my slow cooker or snack girl ❤️

Pat Kareem on February 11, 2014

Just made chili in crockpot. Cook most of my roasts that way too. I've heard of this bag before and it sounds really cool. Pat

Pat Schwab on February 11, 2014

Your recipe sounds delicious! The Wonderbag is also such a cool invention. I am happy to learn about it. My favorite cock pot recipe is BBQ chicken. I use boneless chicken breast, a bottle of my favorite zesty BBQ sauce and mix in 1/2 cup Italian dressing. The pulled chicken is great as a sandwich or in a pita pocket with spinach and cheese. I also love it ontop of pizza. I usually make a big pot of it and the freeze leftovers in individual portion sizes. I find that if the chicken is shredded when you freeze it it defrosts so easily!

Gina on February 11, 2014

I put a eye or chuck roast in with Lipton Beefy onion soup, comes out perfect every time. It bothers my boyfriend that I can get it perfect every time because his over cooks, and it bothers him that I won't tell him the secret of the soup! LOL!

Lori G on February 11, 2014

My favorite in the slow cooker is barbecued country style spare ribs - so tender and delicious!

denise on February 11, 2014

Definitely pulled pork. I also do a slow cooker white chili with chicken that is pretty tasty.

Chicken soup in crockpot is great

Natalie on February 11, 2014

turkey breast with stuffing mix and apricot jelly. I asked a fireman once about crock pots, and they feel they are safe to leave on all day because they use about the same energy as a lightbulb.

sharon on February 11, 2014

Beef council or some similar organization had a great recipe for beef with sweet potatoes in a slow cooker. I would half the beef and add black beans. Really yummy over couscous.

BERNIE VAN DER BYL on February 11, 2014

I love to do my dressing for Thanksgiving, the rest of the year my fav is to put a homemade dry rub (no salt) on a Pot roast and cook on low about 6 hours, no liquid used.

karen nicholl on February 11, 2014

Southwestern sweet potato soup - the only good thing about winter!

Kristi on February 11, 2014

I love a pot roast with carrots in my slow cooker. I never have problems cooking in my crockpot but the Wonderbag sounds like a great idea. Except I don't have a heavy pot so I would have to invest extra $ in buying one

Kim on February 11, 2014

I use my crockpot for just about everything. Inside Out Chicken Pot Pie is one of my favorites! I would love to try tne Wonderbag!

Grant Nagel on February 11, 2014

I love everything that I cook in my crock pot. This would be wonderful to have...would love to win it, but if not, will probably buy it. I am one of those people that only use the cock pot when I am home...always afraid of fires.

karen on February 11, 2014

Green Chili Pork. My husband loves it and asks for it all the time. http://kitchenyumminess.blogspot.com/2010/12/green-chili-pork.html

Elke Speliopoulos on February 11, 2014

Super slowcooker recipe for winter: Put your favorite cut of beef into the slowcooker. Mix together 1 can of Golden Mushroom Soup and 1 package of Beefy Mushroom dry soup mix (has become very hard to find in my area)~ this will be very thick. Smear over the roast and cook on low all day or high for 4-5 hours. This has never failed me!

RebeccaLee on February 11, 2014

Whole roasted chicken.

Bryn on February 11, 2014

Chicken marsala -- so tasty, and so easy!

Lara on February 11, 2014

I love doing buffalo chicken. You can shred it and then use it on a salad. The hot sauce gets completely into the chicken when you slow cook!

Lauren on February 11, 2014

Pulled Pork. Use a pork loin instead of roast and trim all the fat off before you start cooking. Very lean, very tasty.

Sue Stickley on February 11, 2014

Moroccan chicken! Comfort food at its best.

Danielle on February 11, 2014

We love chicken tenders ,cream of chicken, broth onions, celery, carrots,thyme amd rice or noodles.

Ronda Coxe on February 11, 2014

My oven has been broken for the past month and until I can afford to get it fixed or get a new one...my crockpots(s) are my best friend(s)! I've learned you can pretty much make anything in one. I've made (baked) bread and even pizza! My current favorite recipe is whole rotisserie chicken! Very versatile as you can use the left over chicken for many other recipes!

Donna on February 11, 2014

I made swiss steak with potatoes, carrots and delicious gravy for Christmas dinner. It was a real hit. I had to use 2 crockpots.

Carol on February 11, 2014

My favorite crock pot dish is New Orleans' style Red Beans and Rice, with Pickled Pork and Andouille Sausage. Mmmmm!

Millie M. on February 11, 2014

My go to crock pot recipe is the salsa chicken. You can do so much with it once it is cooked, tacos, top a salad, wrap, quesidilla

Pia Romano on February 11, 2014

Macaroni and Cheese!

Kyle on February 11, 2014

I plug my crock pot into a surge protected plug. I use it at least once a week. Love it.
Not sure about this bag though especially with meat. The crockpot gives balanced heat through the slow cooking process to bring the meat to proper temperature. No way the bag can do the same thing without steady heat. Sound like salmonella poisoning waiting to happen. Maybe veggie dishes but no meat products at all. I work in the food processing industry and this does not sound cool at all.

NIOSHA on February 11, 2014

My favorite slow cooker recipe is a creamy chicken noodle soup. Great!

Pattie S. on February 11, 2014

I love your blog and all of your wonderful recipes. They are so great for a full time working mom. Thanks for the inspiration!! BTW, I would love to win a copy of your book:)

Sue L on February 11, 2014

3 or 4 browned pork chops into the crock pot and then cover with a large can of chicken rice soup. Cook for about 4-5 hours. It's wonderful, has good gravy and all you need is some mashed potatoes for a whole meal.

Janet Grindel on February 11, 2014

Carrots, potatoes, and onions topped with chicken pieces. Simple, easy, delish, and the family loves it!

Karen on February 11, 2014

I make yogurt in my crockpot. So easy. Thanks!

Nan B on February 11, 2014

My favorite is steak and gravy. Use cube steak, top or bottom round cut into portion sizes, place in the bottom of the crock, top with a packet of beefy onion soup mix and a can of cream of mushroom soup. No water required. Serve it over mashed potatoes. It's heavenly! I love the idea of this product because I too worry about leaving an appliance turned on all day while I'm gone to work, but crockpots make weeknight dinner so much easier. Here's hoping I win!

Amy on February 11, 2014

Meatloaf! It comes out juicy and delicious!

Maria M on February 11, 2014

I have a couple crock pot favs though they're not very healthy haha. BBQ chicken and chicken & rice. Those are both yummy.

Cover and cook on low for 7 to 8 hours. Turn on before bed and wake up to hot, yummy oatmeal.

Dana Anderson on February 11, 2014

Spicy Shredded Beef (stew meat, enchilada sauce, bouillon cube). Can then use it for enchiladas, sandwiches, etc. A great slow cooker meal.

Beef Stew - its a family favorite. I also now make my Sunday Sauce in my crockpot - allows me to get out and get things done and still have the house smell just like grandmas.

Honore Prisco on February 11, 2014

Would love to win. I never use the crock pot unless I am home.
Fave recipes chili, pulled pork, stew

MaryAnn Carney on February 11, 2014

I love to put a pork roast in my slow cooker with onions, potatoes, carrots, and celery. The meat just melts in your mouth. Though it is true the potatoes are a little mushy.

Eileen Rupert on February 11, 2014

what a great idea! I always worried as well about the safety of leaving the crock pot on when I left the house for any reason; this is such a cool alternative! I will try out your stew recipe this week (in traditional crockpot) but am interested in trying it in the Wonderbag

Elaine Kors on February 11, 2014

I take beef and add a bottle of Rays sweet and spicy BBQ sauce and cook for about 8 hours on low then serve over rice. This one is so simple yet a hit every time.

Holly Caulder on February 11, 2014

Nina on February 11, 2014

I have a great Texas BBQ pulled chicken recipe that is fantastic. Easy to make - even for beginners.

Cyndi on February 11, 2014

I use a crockpot several times a week, for everything! Mine insert cracked about a month ago. I have been searching for the "perfect' one so I have not purchased one yet. I saw this Wonderpot last week on line and have been pondering it. Sure would love to win it! Our favorite is Italian Beef and Peppers.

Natalie Proch on February 11, 2014

1. Mix flour, brown sugar, 1/2 cup of sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt together in a bowl. Combine butter with the flour mixture using fingers or a fork until coarse crumbs form. Stir in walnuts and set aside.

2. Whisk together 1/3 cup sugar, cornstarch, ginger, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Place the apples in a slow cooker, stir in the cornstarch mixture; toss with lemon juice. Sprinkle the walnut crumb topping on top. Cover and cook on High for 2 hours or Low for 4 hours, until apples are tender. Partially uncover the slow cooker to allow the topping to harden, about 1 hour.

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal! It used to be black bean chili, but of recent, I'm in love w/slow cooker oatmeals :0)

Jodie Gregory on February 11, 2014

Cynthia Salzman on February 11, 2014

I've tried so many things in the crockpot, but the old stand-by is still a roast with onions, carrots and potatoes. This is something my mom did at least once a week while I was growing up, and I do it not in my household. Sometimes i throw a beef and a pork roast in together for days of variety.

Maggie on February 11, 2014

Butter Chicken-chicken thighs garlic, curry,Indian Masala spices, tomato paste, yogurt, ketchup to taste. 5-6 hours in crockpot. Add Sriachi (sp?) chili sauce to taste-go easy!-to add some heat

Terri on February 11, 2014

Shredded chicken or pork!

Jennifer on February 11, 2014

You can't beat a nice pot roast made with a can of beer, an Italian seasoning packet, and bullion cubes. Yum!

Kathlene B on February 11, 2014

My favorite is whole chicken in the crockpot. I season it, put onions & celery in the cavity and then just a little chicken broth in the bottom. Delicious! And Milo is adorable!

Kris on February 11, 2014

Jambalaya

Dr. Randolph Ek on February 11, 2014

Spicy Lentil Stew with potatoes and butternut squash yummy :)

Chicken and rice!

White chicken chili

Julie on February 11, 2014

I LOVE to make stuffing in the crock pot at Thanksgiving - we're vegetarian, so we don't stuff a turkey, and making it in the crock pot keeps the stuffing moist and the edges crisp...yum...is it November yet? Lol...

Stacie on February 11, 2014

Taco soup.

Apollonia on February 11, 2014

Chili and baked potatoes. I follow you every way I can. You are great! Thank you for this giveaway!

shari on February 11, 2014

I've already posted my favorite recipe... Turkey breast in crockpot with onion soup mix... No liquid added. High for 1 hr then low for the number of pounds of turkey. Also love beans cooked in cp. I am loving reading everyone's favorite recipe...especially when you write your recipe . Thanks to everyone!!! Loving this post

Esta on February 11, 2014

Pot Roast & stew always come out great!!

Donna on February 11, 2014

My kids love when I do pulled pork. Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ makes it yummy!

LisaH on February 11, 2014

I make chili in the crockpot most often. The recipe that I could really see using this for is balsamic pork sirloin that I like to cook in the Dutch oven.

Monique on February 11, 2014

Lisa, your lead in suggests that slow cooker fires are common. I'm glad you like the new toy but I think you should change that click-through line. Slow cookers are not associated with fires. Mushy food is a different issue.

Kristy on February 11, 2014

I use my crock pot about once a week and love the convenience. My favorite crock pot recipe is pasta e fagioli soup.

Shannon M on February 11, 2014

Brisket!

Julie Wilson on February 11, 2014

This looks like a great solution to my problem which is I add pearl barley to my crock pot stews and unless I am stirring it every so often the barley sticks to the bottom. Fav is rabbit stew jazzed up with garlic and french herbs.

Mary Woollcott on February 11, 2014

I just love an old-fashioned pot-roast cooked in the slow cooker.

Shauna on February 11, 2014

I like to make meatballs in my crockpot.

Jerrygirl on February 11, 2014

Chili Lime Pulled Chicken Tacos...YUM!

Maria on February 11, 2014

I love Barbecue Meatloaf in my crock pot! My husband never would eat meatloaf, and after trying for many years, I found this recipe. He loved it! Its so delicious. MMMMMMMM!

Linda Hartley on February 11, 2014

Lately I've been adding a 6 oz. can of tomato sauce to my crock pot soups AND, this will make Snack-Girl proud, a 14 oz. can of pumpkin! But one of my current favorite non-soups is Chicken Tinga from Slenderkitchen.com. Onions, garlic, canned spicy tomatoes, and boneless/skinless chicken breasts. That's it ... three hours later... shredded chicken!

Robin Perley on February 11, 2014

I love a good ole Pot Roast!!!

Kim Dery on February 11, 2014

Buffalo chicken dip is my absolute favorite, boneless ribs are a close second!

Jennifer on February 11, 2014

Definitely crockpot lasagna. I can't get enough of it but it doesn't always do well with the noodles. This bag would be perfect!

nicole on February 11, 2014

Pork Carnitas!!!! So yummy, falls apart tender!

Lori on February 11, 2014

Everything! My crockpot is my best friend!

Sandee on February 11, 2014

My favorite is Mexican pulled chicken.

angie on February 11, 2014

Hawaiian Chicken....sweet and spicy! Served over brown rice :) I use my crockpot at least once per week. I'm alway nervous about leaving the house with it on. The Wonderbag looks like a great idea!

Corry on February 11, 2014

Jessica Velmer on February 11, 2014

Chicken and diet soda. Pour enough soda to cover the chicken and let it cook on low for 6 - 8 hours. Pour off liquid, shread chicken. Put it back in the crockpot and cover with BBQ sauce. Serve on a bun. Easy and very good.

Bill on February 11, 2014

I like cubed steak, mushrooms, mushroom soup and dry onion soup...all served over noodles!

Tina F. on February 11, 2014

Yakamein Soup. So good.

Courtney on February 11, 2014

I love the recipe, whole chicken in a cooked in a crockpot, so moist & juicy!

Kathy on February 11, 2014

Taco soup....Yummy... my family's favorite !!!

Beth Schell on February 11, 2014

Chicken & Biscuits
1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, 1 can cream of chicken soup, 1 can cream of celery soup, sliced carrots, large onion-chopped, salt, pepper, water, can of reduced fat biscuits.
Place all ingredients in crockpot and place enough water in crockpot to cover ingredients. Cook for 6-8 hours. During last 45mins-hour of cooking, add biscuits in one layer on top of crockpot. DELICIOUS! (would absolutely love to try the wonderbag) The crockpot is the best invention ever (especially for working moms!)

Maria C on February 11, 2014

Beef Stroganoff (beef stew meat, dry French Onion Beefy Soup Mix, red wine, onions, mushrooms, cream of mushroom soup (low sodium, low fat), thyme, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, low fat sour cream or Greek yogurt, egg noodles)

Cory Folliard on February 11, 2014

I love using my slower cooker for vegetarian chili. A mix of beans, tomatoes, onions, baby bella mushrooms and HOT peppers cook slowly to create a great chili that I don't (but my husband does) think needs any meat to round out the flavors! It is also one of my favorite things to take to a pot luck!

Kara King on February 11, 2014

Quintessential Pot roast with potatoes, carrots, celery and onions!! I've been recently introduced to Snack Girl by a good friend and want to try as many Snack Girl to the Rescue! Recipies now that there is a safe Wonder Bag involved bc I was exactly like your friend Meredith.

Kirsten on February 11, 2014

I love making chili in a slow cooker! I have many different recipes and they all turn out great!

Deni on February 11, 2014

Crock Pot Pork Chops

Lightly brown pork chops. PLace in bottom of crock pot. Combine 1 can of cream of mushroom soup and 1 can of evaporated milk. Pour over chops. Cook on lowest setting all day.

Serve over rice. Season with Tony's seasoning.

Joe McCright on February 11, 2014

The best chili is made in the crockpot!

Rene Ditton on February 11, 2014

I love making a roast in the crockpot with onions, potatoes, and carrots, I mix up a packet of brown gravy seasoning, or au jui and pour it over the top NOTHING better than getting home from work and dinner smells delicious and is 'served' almost feels like some-one cooked for me.. wooohoo & clean up is a breeze too

Dawny on February 11, 2014

I love making chili in the crock pot!!

Randi on February 11, 2014

Chicken breast smothered in Campbell's fiesta nacho cheese soup. Shred when cooked and mound onto tortillas or taco salad. Family Favorite!

Torri Woda on February 11, 2014

I'm all about salsa chicken! It's easy, simple (no scary ingredients!) I would love to try making with this method.

Marin on February 11, 2014

I love to crock- about to put a pork loin in my 4 qt in a few minutes. I have 3 sizes, actually, but I do monitor them. Never leave them totally unattended. This does sound like a great product! Thanks for the chance to win it.

Debbie Caraballo on February 11, 2014

I love the smell of food cooking when I come into the house, therefore the slow cooker is wonderful. I am the person that goes to snack girl to see what she would cook today and that would be my favorite recipe. I read the comments, see the changes, make the changes I like and I have my dinner. My personality says there are people that are very good at cooking, wonderbag slowcooker, and Snack Girl and I have the makings for a new favorite slow cooked recipe.

Sandra Lester on February 11, 2014

Have a crockpot recipe for a chocolate cake that the family loves!

Jackie on February 11, 2014

I love pulled pork in the crockpot because, as you mentioned, veggies always get mushy and odd-textured. But the pork I can discard all the extra fat as I pull it and freeze leftovers. Yum!

Ann on February 11, 2014

Tastes Like Chili Rellenos - so much easier than from scratch, and almost as good!

Missy on February 11, 2014

I own three crockpots in various sizes and use them frequently. My favorite recipe is a spicy chicken soup, with beef stew being a close runner up. I also use less beef than the recipe calls for and add extra veggies. I don't find that the veggies are mushy if you cut them in larger pieces. The house smells wonderful all day and we share with our 90 year-old next door neighbor because I double the batch.

Sharon on February 11, 2014

My favorite is a cheap chuck roast sprinkled with dry onion soup. That's it, no water or anything else. Sometimes I also put in carrots and potatoes for a whole meal. My mom always made this with I was little and it is my favorite way to make a roast.

Bonnie Smith on February 11, 2014

I'm still getting use to my slow cooker - so I stick with the basics - chili!

Kate on February 11, 2014

This recipe isn't low calorie, but boy, is it delicious!!! In crock pot put: 1 13 oz bag frozen tortellini, 1 bag spinach, 2 15oz. cans Italian flavored diced tomatoes, 4 cups vegetable broth, 1 8oz. brick (Neuchatel) cream cheese, cut into chunks. Crock on low for 5-6 hours. I added cooked shrimp last 1/2 hr, also, shredded chicken is good.

Marlene on February 11, 2014

I love so many recipes in the crockpot but I am a breakfast girl so oatmeal in the crockpot is my choice. Apple cinnamon oatmeal. yumm!!

Katelyn on February 11, 2014

My husband and I favorite is Crockpot Salsa Swiss Steak. We have it often. The steak comes out very tender. Great flavor.

Jan Molter on February 11, 2014

I use my slow cooker to make cholent for cold shabbat afternoons (in Florida!)

Lisa on February 11, 2014

Love, love, love to make my turkey chili in my slow cooker. I keep on refining the recipe for the right amount of heat and to get it moist but not soupy. I wonder (no pun intended!) how my recipe would fair in a Wonderbag? Pick me!

MIke F. on February 11, 2014

I love to make pulled barbeque in my slow cooker. I use this bbq seasoning from McCormick with a little apple cider vinegar, and a cup of ketchup and a nice 4-5 pound pork loin for 8-10 hours on low, you can check for tenderness after 8 hours but the longer the better. You don't have to do anything until its done and then just pull it with a fork because it is that tender. This wonder bag looks great but can you cook cook anything in it like the slow cooker? Wouldn't mind trying it myself!

Tina on February 11, 2014

Pork chops. Rub dry mustard over chops, dip in flour and add 2 cans of chicken and rice soup.

Dean gibson on February 11, 2014

Chicken and sweet potatoes (with onion and brown sugar). Amazing!

Heather P on February 11, 2014

My sister's Christmas stew. She made it one year because they would be pressed for time and we loved it so much it became a tradition.

Heather Oswald on February 11, 2014

Love chili !

Suzette Scoble on February 11, 2014

Luau pulled pork...yummy and SO easy!

Claudine on February 11, 2014

I love to make Crockpot Chicken...chicken breast, low sodium cream of chicken soup, low fat cream cheese, and italian dressing dry mix. SO good over rice or egg noodles!

Meagan C. on February 11, 2014

navy beans with ham hock

Gay on February 11, 2014

My absolute favorite is a black bean and corn soup. Couple of cans of black beans, some (fresh or frozen) corn, spices (it varies depending on my mood), about 1 1/2 to 2 C reduced sodium stock (beef, chicken or veggie), and any raw veggies I feel like adding (diced) to fill the pot. Cover and simmer 4-6 hours on medium, or 8 on low. Served over brown rice with a fresh green salad and homemade cornbread. Yum!

Rose on February 11, 2014

pulled beef/pork roast. super yummy! one small beef roast, one small pork roast, one can beef consomme, one packet dry zesty itailian dressing mix, one packet au jus. put meat in pot. pour/sprinkle other ingredients over meat. cook for 8 to 10 hours. the longer you cook, the more if falls apart AND melts in your mouth. Serve alone, as french dip sandwiches, over rice, over pasta, in a soup. Simply Delish!

Michele J on February 11, 2014

Wow, this is pretty cool! I bet it helps make great yogurt, too. I cook pretty much anything in a crock pot - but mostly we use it for making a most excellent chicken broth or bone broth. Chicken bones (or beef bones), rough chopped carrots and onions, water, some apple cider vinegar (2tbs) and let it stew and stew for about 24 hours. Good, potent stuff and very easy to make when you put it in the crock pot and forget it.

Bethany on February 11, 2014

Love just about anything in my crock pot. As RV'ers this is a great idea for traveling days. I can see myself prepping for dinner and using this to cook our meal as we are driving down the road. Awesome idea!

Marlene Tillery on February 11, 2014

I love making either my healthy version of Chili or what I have in it now....easy potato soup. Yum!

Carrie on February 11, 2014

Rotisserie Chicken in the crockpot is one of our favorites and so easy. It just takes a full chicken and some seaoning of your choosing! No water needed. I wrap potatoes in foil and place the chick on top, so that I have a full meal in one pot! Cook for ~6 hours on low. The chicken is seriously melt in your mouth good!

Melissa Buchanan on February 11, 2014

"Everything but the kitchen sink" chicken chili. My second favorite is whole turkey breast with apple juice and vegetables.

Naomi M on February 11, 2014

I love doing pork roast in the slow cooker. Slit the fat and insert slivers of garlic. Rub salt and herbs all over the roast. Pop in the slow cookers on low for 8-10 hours. I drain off the liquid halfway through the roasting, let it sit and then skim off all the fat so I can use it as a jus for the roast if I feel like it.

Margaret on February 11, 2014

I love the weight watchers recipe for slow cooker South Indian red lentil curry (google it). My husband can't get enough. It's just dried lentils, diced tomatoes, frozen spinach (I don't bother defrosting it), broth, and a few spices. YUM!!!

Abby on February 11, 2014

I just roasted a whole chicken in the crock pot last night. Delicious!

Stephanie on February 11, 2014

Hot Beef for sandwiches
a three pound roast
a can of french onion soup
several hours in the slow cooker
shred the beef and add a packet of Hidden Valley Ranch dressing (dry ingredient packet) Stir and keep heating for another half hour.
Shreded beef on a bun - bliss!

Anne Marie DeBoard on February 11, 2014

Hi, I love your blog and read it regularly. However today your blog was not to my taste. Seeing your dog sitting inside of a bag that is used to heat food makes me sick. Animals and food preparation don't go together. Hair, dander, etc don't go near anything I use to prepare food. A great big YUCK!

Eva on February 11, 2014

I love the slow cooker cilantro lime chicken recipe on allrecipes. I substitute chile powder, cumin, onion powder and garlic for the taco seasonings mix. Super easy- few ingredients - and delicious

Karen Kaufman on February 11, 2014

Turkey breast in the crockpot. Onion soup mix and 1/2 cup orange juice.

Sharon Kiellach on February 11, 2014

I have a recipe for pork chops with multicolor bell peppers, OJ, and chipotle peppers in adobo sauce that my husband and son beg me to make every week. It just falls apart on your fork. Ok, gotto go make it now, I'm hungry!

Pam Blizzard on February 11, 2014

Spaghetti Sauce or Chicken in white wine sauce. These top my list but I am a slow cooker fool. I have two of the digital types that I can set up to turn on and off. I do admit to worrying about the chance of fire so this is really good news.

Connie Gatlin on February 11, 2014

What a nifty idea! My favorite thing to make in a crcokpot is ranch potatoes...to DIE for! :)

Thank you for the giveaway.

Barrie on February 11, 2014

I love crockpot cooking. Hard to say a favorite recipe.I love to do chili, Brunswick stew, chicken and dressing and of coarse boiled peanuts to name a few.

Pat on February 11, 2014

WW Crockpot Lasagna - Easy, healthy and oh so good.

Connie on February 11, 2014

With St. Pats day right around the corner....I can not wait to make Corned Beef and Cabbage. The wonderbag would be great for this since my recipe calls for Carrots and Potatoes and they usually end up kind of mushy. So, I would love to get my hands on the wonderbag! P.S. Picture of your dog in the bag made me smile :)

Karen on February 11, 2014

My favorite?... Hard to pick just one. maybe pot roast, like your recipe!
would love to have a copy of your book!

Michelle on February 11, 2014

I love making a slow cooked pernil.

danielle on February 11, 2014

Jill on February 11, 2014

Taco soup! It's my go-to fail safe!

Susan R on February 11, 2014

I love crockpot BBQ pulled pork!

Andrea on February 11, 2014

definitely pulled pork!!!

Catherine Williams on February 11, 2014

I love waking up to breakfast! I put whole grains (either straight wheat berries or a mix of grains) in my tiny crockpot just before going to bed, then my husband turns it off when he gets up (early riser). This would be perfect because it would keep the cereal from overlooking if we sleep in. Wonderful!

Sally on February 11, 2014

Love my crock pot -- especially for making a roast with potatoes and carrots. I look forward to trying the ideas above!

Deb on February 11, 2014

my favorite slow cooker recipe is swiss steak: sliced green peppers and onions, stewed tomatoes, and round steak. oh soooo good....no measuring needed!!!

lauren on February 11, 2014

Chicken Breasts & Manwich sauce, all day on low: Shredded yummy!

Daneen on February 11, 2014

Cathy on February 11, 2014

Oatmeal with fresh fruit and nuts!!!

annie on February 11, 2014

Pot roast. This yummy, comforting meal smells better than anything in the world. It may not be the most exciting of dishes but everyone in my family gets a big smile on their face when they walk in the door and smell it cooking.

LISA on February 11, 2014

I use Kitchen bouquet as an awesome additive to my stews. I have no recipe per say; I brown stewing beef in a frying pan with onions and garlic. when that is done, I slowly add water to the pan and bring to a boil. Add whatever herbs I decide upon that day. Then i take knorr beef boullion and add that, mixing until dissolved.I put all my vegetables in the pot, put the beef on top and then add the juice. If I need more, I mix Kitchen Bouquet with water and top off the stew. Let it slow cook all day, when I get home I may add Yams, as if you add them at the beginning, they turn to mush.

Lucy Arnold on February 11, 2014

Pork shoulder in a mustard barbecue sauce...makes the house smell AMAZING!

JGrib on February 11, 2014

Chicken tacos - chicken breast, packet of hidden valley ranch seasoning, packet of old el paso seasoning - cook on low 8 hrs - serve in taco shells with lettuce, tomatos, olives and feta cheese. I use a lamp timer so mine doesn't over cook. I love using a crock pot as I don't get home till 6pm from work and it's hard to get a healthy meal on the table by 7pm.

Karla on February 11, 2014

Creamy chicken and homemade noodles--amazing!

Heather on February 11, 2014

Wow this is such a great item! A must have for someone who is really busy! I could really use this, while busy crafting and making cards dinner would be cooking. Thanks for sharing.

DiEtta Morris on February 11, 2014

I love to make steel cut oats in my crockpot. It is so easy and comes out perfectly

sara on February 11, 2014

My mom's Boston baked beans. Just put the beans, salt pork, diced onion, brown sugar, dried mustard and water in the slow cooker and leave it go for 8 hours.

Stacy mcAllister on February 11, 2014

Brown sugar and garlic chicken!

Ellen Gibbons on February 11, 2014

Pork Verde . . . 2-3 lb pork roast or loin, 1 jar green salsa, 1 jar green enchilada sauce, stew for 6+ hours till it falls apart. I drain off the sauce but you could use it. Pull the pork a little then serve with small tortillas, beans, and rice.

Jennifer on February 11, 2014

I make veggie lasagna with no boil noodles.

angela on February 11, 2014

I use the crockpot for chicken a lot but need to find some great recipes to set and forget :) Thank you

Lisa on February 11, 2014

Polynesian chicken served over quinoa

Sami on February 11, 2014

My favorite slow cooker food is PULLED PORK! YUM!!!

Laura C. on February 11, 2014

This looks great - very interesting take on the slow cooker. I love Food Babe's green chili recipe - I've made it twice now and my husband and I both love it because it's light but filling and has just enough heat. This beef stew sounds delightful, too - can't wait to try it.

Susan on February 11, 2014

Beef pot roast

Jocelyn Weiss on February 11, 2014

Chowder!

SC on February 11, 2014

Beef stroganoff. easy and any cut of beef comes out tender. My kids love it.

Nancy on February 11, 2014

I love lentil soup! And while I'm working it's so nice to just throw in 2c water, 2c broth, 1 cup of lentils, a whole chopped carrot, chopped stalk of celery, diced potato, chopped half onion, and a bay leaf. Crock on low for 6-8hrs. * Sometimes I throw in more veggies. If I'm home to watch the crock pot, I don't put my veggies in until there's only 2 hrs left (so they're nice and al dente). Delicious and very filling :D

Erin Baker on February 11, 2014

I love cooking with my crockpot! However I have had bad experience when I cooked my favorite pot roast (6 to 8 hours on low) and came home to find that it was not fully cooked. The crockpot had either stopped working or had an heating problem. After that happened I was worried to leave it unattended while I was at work. The Wonderbag is an awesome idea. It is a much safer way for sure!

Kristi on February 11, 2014

Cheesy Chicken Noodle is our house fav in the crock pot! Although we use it for so many yummy things!

Jeanne on February 11, 2014

boneless, skinless chicken thighs with rice, one jar of salsa and one can of diced tomatoes. Shred meat when it's done. Delicious!

Dana on February 11, 2014

I like to make pulled pork in the crock pot. I put a loin in, or some boneless chops, and smother in whatever saucey stuff I feel like.
Slow cook and then shred.

Lee Bednar on February 11, 2014

Chicken breasts, half a jar of orange/pineapple marmalaid, Thai sweet chili sauce.....mmmmmm use alone over rice, toss in a salad or as ready to eat snacks after biking!!

Robyn on February 11, 2014

My favorite crockpot recipe is Pork and homemade Sauerkraut.

Kristine on February 11, 2014

Oxtails are my fave slow cooker meal.

Nessa on February 11, 2014

Can we talk about the dog? could he be any cuter?? :-))
I use my slow cooker all the time - love it. "Applesauce chicken" or any recipe from Make it Fast, Cook it Slow.

Mary VW on February 11, 2014

Corned Beef w/carrots and potatoes - nice to come home to dinner all cooked and waiting for you!

DeeN on February 11, 2014

I love this bag! My favorite recipe has to be my mom's chicken and rice. We had it at almost every Sunday lunch. Comfort food at it's best!

Jonathan Hickey on February 11, 2014

Roast with carrots and potatoes, mushroom soup. It is delicious.

Beef stroganoff!

Jennifer Rogers on February 11, 2014

APPLE CRISP in the slow cooker! Most amazing! Slice apples, add spices and a little lemon juice then add topping. Set cooker for 8 hours on low. I usually do this overnight and have yummy crisp for breakfast!

Nicole B on February 11, 2014

I would like to enter to win a Wonderbag! My favorite slow cooker recipe is Ginger Chicken - chicken with carrots, pureed ginger, broccoli, lemon, fresh basil, honey, olive oil, fresh garlic. Sometimes I also add a banana.

A good old fashioned beef stew!!

Catherine Griffice on February 11, 2014

We use our crock pot a lot, but then, I'm home most days so I don't have to worry about the safety issue. We use it for soups, stews and chili. My favorite though, is pulled pork for barbeque. I am curious about this, as I intentionally only use my CP for stuff that can be mushy. I'd love to branch out!

Kiy on February 11, 2014

Shredded chicken or pulled pork

Colleen Thomas on February 11, 2014

pork shops and sauerkraut, with onions, apples, a little brown sugar, and a little dill. yum!

Meredith on February 11, 2014

Izabel on February 11, 2014

Chicken fajitas!

Tess on February 11, 2014

Turkey breast is the best, and I also love cooking Boston Butt for pulled pork sandwiches in there.

Sue on February 11, 2014

Just made a whole chicken, so juicy and good. My recipe has asian flavor. I lined the bottom with onions and ginger. Sesame oil, salt, pepper, paprika and a little Cayenne all over the chicken. Stuff the inside with shitake mushrooms. Juices are great with rice.

Julie on February 11, 2014

I love to make chicken chili in the crock pot! I am a crazy crock pot user and I am very excited about the idea of using less energy!

Erin on February 11, 2014

Carnitas in the crock pot. Yummy !

Jocelyn Kamouh on February 11, 2014

I make yogurt in my crock pot. I would like to see if it works with the Wonderbag.

Valerie on February 11, 2014

I love my turkey taco soup slow cooker recipe!

Carrie R. on February 11, 2014

I really like steel cuts oats in the crockpot. Oats, milk, and dried fruit overnight you have breakfast in a flash.

Megan on February 11, 2014

I enclose in foil in my crockpot any less-expensive cut of meat or pork topped with seasoning (I favor garlic), set it and leave it for hours 'til it's fall-apart tender. (As a Weight Watcher, I find it easier to measure & track if I cook ingredients, especially proteins, separately before integrating into a soup, stew, or other meal.) I do get concerned about the safety of leaving on the crockpot and am never confident that I'm cooking for exactly the right length of time (not over- or under-cooking), and for those reasons would love to try this alternative. =)

C on February 11, 2014

I usually slow cook a whole chicken and use the meat for quick meals all and the bones for homemade broth. I do the same with pork roasts.

Amy N on February 11, 2014

Sweet potato, chicken, cinnamon-ginger stew!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mandy on February 11, 2014

Pulled buffalo chicken!!!

Jami on February 11, 2014

One favorite is tough; I love my slow cooker! If I have to pick just one I'll pick chili. It is so super easy and so, so yummy!!

Heather M on February 11, 2014

I love creating different types of Chili in my slow cooker. Perfect for this bitter MN cold we are having this winter!

Angie Jerde on February 11, 2014

Sarah L. on February 11, 2014

So many....moist roasted whole chicken using foil balls.....also turkey meat sauce sort of like bolognese without any dairy added, chicken, try tip for ropa de vieja is wonderful.

Sharon on February 11, 2014

There's a chicken taco soup recipe that I adore; chicken and beer and tomatoes with roasted green chiles and taco seasoning and that's pretty much it. Topped with cheese and sour cream and onions, it's amazing.

TC on February 11, 2014

I love making Chili in my crockpot!!

Mary Ann A. on February 11, 2014

I use mine to make overnight oatmeal. 1 cup steel cut oats, 4 1/2 cups water, pinch of salt, cinnamon and sweetener of your choice. I use 1/4 cup brown sugar splenda and cut up apples. On low overnight and you wake up to a hot and delicious breakfast! My family loves it.

april sarges on February 11, 2014

Slow cooker pulled pork!

Nicolette S Releford on February 11, 2014

Catherine Marvin on February 11, 2014

White chili is my favorite. Made with chicken and white northern beans--it is as good beef chili,

Sherry Dawson on February 11, 2014

Chicken Pozole

Eibleis Melendez on February 11, 2014

Hi, I am in temporary housing right now (for 1 year :-) and I chose to not bring my slow cooker from home (cooking for one actually) and I have missed the option of doing slow cooker and freezing the left overs. This bag looks to be a pretty good alternative and requires not much storage space! Unfortunately the pots I brought both have handles, but maybe the bag will encompass a handle?
But to answer the question, my favorite slow cooker recipe? A spicy chicken entree!

Shari on February 11, 2014

Beef Stew - although I always cook the potatoes separate as they get too mushy in slow cooker - maybe not with the wonderbag ?

Rochelle on February 11, 2014

White wine, mushroom soup, mushrooms and chicken. Throw it together and head out the door in less than 5 minutes. Love that!

Christine on February 11, 2014

LOVE slow cooker recipes and would love to try the Wonder Bag. It reminds me of cooking in a Dutch Oven while camping :-)

Cindy on February 11, 2014

Chili

April S on February 11, 2014

Pulled pork with cola

Kristi on February 11, 2014

Black beans. I make them almost every week and then portion them to 1 cup servings and freeze to eat later. I really want to start making more dishes soon!

Jennylind Doyle on February 11, 2014

I put chicken thighs, sweet potatoes and black beans in the crock pot with a few diced onions, peppers and green chiles a bit of cumin, salt and pepper, and some V-8. It is a wonderful meal that is sort of island like and my kids love it.

Amy Snow on February 11, 2014

Wow Lisa, you could do another book with all of these great recipes!
I love, love, love my slowcooker. I have been on a soup making frenzy lately and the best one is a Three Bean Chowder that is perfect for the winter. And its really easy which is my favorite part!

laxmom16 on February 11, 2014

Pork roast, salt and pepper, sauerkraut....perfect.

Robin S on February 11, 2014

Lora Brody's Crockpot Risotto! NO MORE STIRRING!

Nancy on February 11, 2014

Oh my gosh I love using the slow cooker! I have so many favorite recipes... mostly chicken with a lot of veggies. most recently, I put 1/2 bag of frozen spinnach, 1 can diced tomtoes, 2 zucchini & 2 servings frozen thawed seasoned chicken breast! DELICIOUS! This wonderbag would be great for me going off to college!

priya on February 11, 2014

Pulled pork, for sure.

Stefani on February 11, 2014

Applesauce (recipe from here) I just cored them left the peels on, added some cinnamon and water. I got a new crockpot on black friday for about $4.00. I've never worried about leaving one on. I always unplug my toaster and toaster oven, that is much more worriesome to me.

Barbara Sterling on February 11, 2014

I love bbq pork chops in the slow cooker. So good when I get home from work.

Karen Stiles on February 11, 2014

Google the recipe “Busy Mom’s Chicken Fajitas” from Taste of Home. This is a delicious, easy and healthy recipe that my husband requests at least once a month!

Stephanie on February 11, 2014

I have a lot of good recipes for my crockpot but the handiest ones are for breakfast. Hot oatmeal, egg type casseroles, etc. ready and waiting. When you wake up. This is especially convenient when you have overnight guests.

Kelley Boothby on February 11, 2014

Used my crockpot a lot to cook meals but would love to try a new way that uses less energy!

Eileen Ball on February 11, 2014

Pulled pork

Rene on February 11, 2014

I love making apple sauce in the crockpot. The house smells heavenly and the apple sauce comes out perfect. 4C chopped apples, 1/4C orange juice, dollop of butter, 1 C of sugar (adjust to kind of apple your using and your taste), 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tstp ground nutmeg.

Pat on February 11, 2014

My go-to favorite (and easy) crock pot recipe has to be Crock Pot Cream Cheese Chicken Chili from "Rita's Recipes". And substituting the cream cheese for Greek yogurt is a great healthier, yet equally delicious option.

Monica on February 11, 2014

Vegan chili

catie on February 11, 2014

I don't have a favorite slow cooker recipe because...I've never owned a slow cooker! But my friend just shared a vegan white bean soup recipe that I'd probably make. The Wonderbag looks really cool and even if I don't win, I might have to invest in it!

Marla on February 11, 2014

Mmmmm Mmmmmm Good! Ham potatoes carrots cabbage...great winter time comfort food! Oh and nice homemade Chili another delicious dish! I will be making your recipe!! Mmmm Mmmm Good!!!

Dora on February 11, 2014

My fav slow cooker recipe is an oldie but goodie...pot roast!

Kellee Robinson on February 11, 2014

I have 2 "go to" recipes for the crock pot 1) chili and 2) chicken and rice. I am really interested in the Wonderbag...I want one to go with my Lodge cast iron enameled pot (which I LOVE)

Jeanette on February 11, 2014

I love to make classic roast with carrots, potatoes and onions. I also like to cook a whole chicken or turkey in the crockpot with celery and onions and shred the meat for soups, stews, casseroles and other meals.

Mandi on February 11, 2014

shredded beef with potatoes and carrots!

Vanessa O on February 11, 2014

Pot roast!!

Amanda on February 11, 2014

Chicken and dumplings- chicken, cream of whatever soup, a lot of veggies, and a tube of biscuits thrown in the crockpot in the last 30 minutes. Yum!

Pamela on February 11, 2014

I have been dying to make a Slow-Cooker Sweet Potato and Lentil Soup, but I do not have a slow cooker, so I have not been able to try this!

Hailey on February 11, 2014

I love to make beef and barley soup or Brunswick stew in the slow cooker. I bet with this you could make baked apples.

lynne on February 11, 2014

Cholent. Bean and beef stew for the Sabbath. It changes a little every week, but it's always yummy!

Robin Schwartz on February 11, 2014

A recipe adapted from my pressure cooker cookbook years ago for Swedish Pot Roast, with a bit of brown sugar, cinnamon, onions, and red wine . . . I've been thinking about that dish lately . . . must be time to have it again ;-)

Mary Garrett on February 11, 2014

Emily Bites crockpot meatballs. Yumm!

Elissa on February 11, 2014

Love black beans in the crockpot

Konnie on February 11, 2014

I never have a problem with food being over cooked! Nonetheless, would love to give this version of a slow cooker a try! Chili and beef stew always turn out great- going to give that chicken stroganoff a try!

Heidi on February 11, 2014

Pulled pork.

kari on February 11, 2014

Skinny Taste's Crockpot Santa Fe Chicken

Katherine Thornton on February 11, 2014

I guess as an old timer, we take the prize for the most crockpots in the house. We have two extra large, 2 good sized, 2 quart sized (warm dips) and 1 small. We like hot and mild chili in the crock pots, beef stew, spiced cider, warm cheese dips and oatmeal by size. I never gave a second thought about fire, although I do check the cords regularly for fraying or excess wear.

Elaine on February 11, 2014

Definately pulled pork. You can then serve that on a Hawaiian roll or over rice. Love it!

August Hewlett on February 11, 2014

Absolutely love slow cooker chicken pot pie stew...

Shakira on February 11, 2014

Simple and easy lamb stew in a slow cooker on a cold, winter, rainy day . . . l lb pound lamb meat--necks,shoulder chops--(defat or cook off any visible fat, add two chopped carrots and four (red) potatoes, 1/4 onion chopped, vegetable broth, one can unsalted tomato sauce or one can diced unsalted tomato,one tsp olive oil, 1/4 tsp oregano, pepper, salt, thyme, and basil. Do not overcook. Always better the next day. Enjoy!

Shirley on February 11, 2014

I love crock pot french dip!! It's fanominal!!

Karen Hosler on February 11, 2014

I love mac and cheese in the slow cooker...yummy! Lots of other recipes too!

Edie on February 11, 2014

Scalloped Potatoes and Ham - healthy version of course. It tastes just like it does when I bake it in the oven, but I don't have to mess with heating up the oven - and the house - to cook it and clean up is way easier.

Evie on February 11, 2014

Lean pork tenderloin cooked with sliced onions and cut up apples,a little dijon mustard, honey, and salt and pepper.
Cooks about 6 to 8 hours.

Sally Allen on February 11, 2014

I love making soup, I have a great slow cooker recipe for Lentil soup!

Liz Smith on February 11, 2014

Pumpkin steel cut oats. When done drizzle with some real maple syrup.

Linda on February 11, 2014

I love my crock pots!!!!!! Everything that I have made in them turns out delicious!!!!! I think that my favorite thing to make in the largest one in Kalua Pork. Now, if you were to ask my husband, he would say chili. The smaller one, I use for making soups for me with lots of vegetables as my husband is a steak and potatoes type guy.

Jolene Rice on February 11, 2014

Funny thing, I just put beans, bbq sauce and carrots in my crockpot this morning before I opened my email! My favorite recipe is pulled pork. I buy the pork and cook it in the pot with some chicken broth, tomato sauce, BBQ Sauce. It cooks all day. I shred the pork and taste it adding the heat, ie red pepper flakes and hot sauce. The great thing is the left overs. Once you make pulled pork sandwiches and if there are left overs... you can make quesadillas, tacos, enchiladas... they just keep on giving!

Goldie Nam on February 11, 2014

Baked chicken with veggies. Always moist and delicious.

Kay Anderson on February 11, 2014

My favorite meal is pork tenderloin with a pack of dry Italian dressing and a jar of banana peppers poured over it oh it is so good.

Alice Jones on February 11, 2014

I am not the paranoid type in general, but do you actually know anyone who has had a crockpot catch on fire? I have never even heard of it and have been using a crockpot for 20 years and have never even considered that it might be a safety issue! Perhaps I need to worry more. :) My favorite slow cooker recipe is a barbecued pulled chicken. It has just enough vinegar in it to make my house smell like a barbecue joint.

Heather Parry on February 11, 2014

Honey Bourbon chicken. It uses chicken thighs and comes out great with some nice liquid to put on some steamed veggies! Yum!

Laura on February 11, 2014

One of my favorites.....

Mexican Chicken
4-5 boneless/skinless chicken breast (I semi thaw and chunk them in approx 2 inch cubes, but you can leave whole frozen, I just found that if I leave them whole, we only get 2 meals out of this, if I chunk them, we get 4 meals)

1 can corn, drained

1 can black beans (I do not drain or rinse)

1 can ro-tel tomatoes (don’t drain)

cumin to taste (I love cumin so use approx 1 teaspoon)

garlic powder to taste (same note as above)

Option: If you have a lime hanging around, you can squeeze the lime juice in the pot too… or add a bit of the zest.

All in the pot
Cook on low 7-8 hours or on high 4-6 hours
Your house will smell amazing
Serve over white rice with some shredded cheese, sour cream and diced avacados.

I put the left over rice & chicken in the same storage container and serve it the next day as burritos.
Enjoy!

Becky on February 11, 2014

I make a delicious Moroccan chicken stew in mine. It reminds me of tangine style cooking!

Dora on February 11, 2014

My favorite slow cooker recipe is my Chili recipe. 1 pound of ground beef, cooked (usually with onions and garlic in my case).
1 can of dark red kidney beans, rinsed
1 large can diced tomatoes
1 large can crushed tomatoes
Garlic powder
Chili Powder
Cumin
Salt

Layer cooked ground beef, drained/rinsed kidney beans, diced tomatoes, then crushed tomatoes in a slow cooker. Sprinkle salt, garlic powder and cumin on top (to taste). Cover the entire surface with chili powder (more to taste). Simmer on low for 6-8 hours.

Serve with cheese and fritos. Enjoy!

Rachel Pilgrim on February 11, 2014

I LOVE making 'debris,' in a crock pot. The cajun po-boy filler specialty! First, thoroughly blacken on all sides, a nice beef roast (brisket, or even a chuck roast, about 5 pounds), so the Staub or a Le Creuset would be good for this; well-season the outside of the roast first! Then, place in crock pot on high with just about an inch of water in the pot; periodically poke at the meat to pull off the 'debris' as the meat gets loose. You are 'done' when the meat is one big bowl of mush. It takes a long time, but it DOES happen!!

Heidi Hottinger on February 11, 2014

Pulled Pork is my FAVORITE in the slow cooker.

Kirstie on February 11, 2014

That's pretty neat.

Sue on February 11, 2014

Wow this sounds great. We are gonna try it

Mare on February 11, 2014

Pork or chicken, slow cooked with a couple of canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, cumin, and chicken broth. I shred this and serve over black beans with a sprinkle of green onion on top. Delish, easy and healthy.

Trish Payne on February 11, 2014

A white bean chili....can of chick broth, small jar of salsa, 3cans navy beans or great northerns undrained,, 2cups chopped chicken or 2cans of Costco white chicken...when hot add 2cups grated cheese...great on cold snowy day like today in NC!

Penny on February 11, 2014

Veronica M on February 11, 2014

To use frozen meat loaf: Thaw in the refrigerator overnight. Cook as directed. Yield: 6 servings.

Theresa H on February 11, 2014

My favorite slow cooker recipe is for Potato Soup. This actually started as a full "real" recipe that involved chopping potatoes and things and cooking everything on the stove. It was tasty like that, but I like shortcuts!

Ingredients:
1 bag frozen diced potatoes (make sure they aren't cooked!)
1/2 an onion, chopped (if you feel like it - or you can buy the potatoes that come with onions and peppers in)
2 Boxes of Chicken broth (low sodium low/low fat)
1 block of cream cheese (I don't recommend the low fat kind here - it doesn't melt well sometimes)
8 oz of diced ham (also optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
Can of Campbell's nacho cheese soup (optional, but yummy)

Put your potatoes and onions (if you're using them) in your cooker and pour the chicken broth over them. The broth should cover the potatoes with a little to spare. If it doesn't, just add water - it won't hurt anything. Set it on low and go to work, wander the house, read a book, whatever.

8 hours or so later (really it doesn't matter, because the potatoes are going to be mushy if it's 8 hours or 10 hours), give the stuff a stir. Cut your cream cheese up into cubes (this helps things melt faster), and drop it into the soup. Once it's melted together, salt and pepper to taste.

I serve this with a dollop of the nacho cheese soup, or nacho cheese, or a sprinkling of shredded cheese. Sometimes I add cheese to the soup itself because our family really likes cheese.

Perfect when it's snowing - and it disappears at our soup dinner at church!

Geri on February 11, 2014

I love to make Mexican chicken. chicken, salsa, corn, black beans and homemade taco seasoning. Super easy and delicious on it's own or served in tortillas.

Kari F on February 11, 2014

I cook black beans (already cooked from dry), corn, tomatoes, garlic, chili powder, cumin, and salt (because there is no salt in the beans) on low all day, high all afternoon, or for an hour in a skillet if I'm desparate. It's my favorite back-up meal. You can add some sausage for the whole cooking time or cheese when you serve it if you want to.

Anne on February 11, 2014

I have a easy-peasy and delicious sweet and sour beef and carrot stew that is a family favorite that cooks to perfection in a slow cooker. Thank you so much for the opportunity to win a wonderbag and gallery proof! :)

So far, my favorite recipe is a delicious artichoke chicken that my whole family loved.

Thanks for sponsoring such a great giveaway. I just the Wonderbag on Amazon recently. It seems like such a wonderful way to save energy while feeding your family a healthy nourishing meal.

Thanks, Snack Girl.

Beef stew is our favorite!

I am intrigued with the wonderbag. Would love to try it!

Dora Miller on February 11, 2014

I love chicken salsa!

Bea Stauffer on February 11, 2014

I have 2 slow cookers, one large, one small. I use them both often, but I plug them into a light timer so I don't have to cook everything for 10 hrs, which makes it all mushy. Favorite recipe is Asian style ribs!

Jessica on February 11, 2014

My favorite crock pot meal is taco soup because it's so fast and easy to throw together.

Maria K on February 11, 2014

Pork chops with sautéed sliced onions bathed in ketchup, some water and a little extra brown sugar. Salt and pepper to taste. Pork chops fall off the bone in this tangy, oniony sauce which is great served over anything.

Desiree Reiach on February 11, 2014

I like crockpot lasagna!

Laura Howell on February 11, 2014

I make a thai coconut chicken curry in my slow cooker. Full of flavor!

Nora on February 12, 2014

Chicken Cacciatore! I flour dust and sear chicken pieces (bone in) before adding to crockpot. 2 cans of tomatoes, chopped, onion, green pepper, garlic, tomato sauce. The flour helps to thicken the "gravy". Delish over wide egg noodles.

Kathleen Burch on February 12, 2014

Pulled pork is great in the slow cooker!

Sarah on February 12, 2014

Soups! Favorite in the crockpot is Taco because the flavors simmer all day.

Mmmmm...I love my crock pot!!! I have two favorite recipes...the traditional roast beef with carrots potatoes and onions and a newer recipe that I've come across Caribbean pulled pork tacos!!! Yummo!!! By the way my dog, Molly would totally use the Wonderbag as a bed as well! She'll curl up in anything that looks comfortable!

Jamielynn on February 12, 2014

I love meat recipes that are easy to fix. Using the slow cooker makes me feel like I have cooked a good meal...but it is not time consuming.

Italian Dressing chicken or pork chops...yummy!!! on February 12, 2014

I make spaghetti sauce in my crockpot every week using canned tomatoes and browned sausage. The kids love it.

Kathryn on February 12, 2014

orange / cranberry chicken!

Ann-Marie Spofford on February 12, 2014

Santa Fe Chicken! Super easy and we use it for dinners all week. Soup, taco night, enchiladas... the possibilities are endless!

Cassie Wright on February 12, 2014

swedish meatballs on this chilly day would work great with this pot, sounds like it would be a lot safer and great for family outings and for my grandsons traveling baseball team

dawnsray on February 12, 2014

Pork shoulder cooked with beans (white beans preferably) - onion, garlic, peppers. AMAZING!!!

Shaneeka on February 12, 2014

My favorite slow cooker recipe would be vegetarian chili with beans, tomatoes, and vegetables.

I am new to crock pot use and am building up recipes now. I would love to win one of these though!

Jessica Medina on February 12, 2014

Rotisserie-style chicken steamed in white wine with carrots, onions, and celery :)

Jema on February 12, 2014

Favorite slow-cooker recipe is- Cinnamon Carrots: Spray the slow cooker with vegetable/olive oil spray, add 2-3lbs carrots cut into one inch pieces, 3/4c. apple juice (no sugar), 1 c. of fresh/frozen cranberries(substitute 1/2c. craisins), 2 T. brown sugar, 2 T. butter, 1 t. cinnamon, 1/2 t. nutmeg, 1/4 t. ginger...cook on low 6-8 hours...or till done to preferred texture. Enjoy! Goes great with turkey.

Barb Anderson on February 12, 2014

My favorite slow cooker recipe is pork roast with carrots, onions and potatoes. I would love to win this and try it out!
Thank you!

KayDawn McCoy on February 12, 2014

...question?... I'm going to guess that this wonderbag method of slow cooking would only be appropriate to use for bovine recipes (beef,veal,moose, venison,goat???, lamb???),and not for pork or fowl for food safety reasons. AM I CORRECT?

Peter on February 12, 2014

I cook pinto beans in my slow cooker. I just put in the pinto beans with enough water to cover and let them cook on high for 8 hours until tender. I don't use my slow cooker for much of anything else because it does make things mushy unless I am home to add ingredients to the pot.

Olivia on February 12, 2014

beef roast with cream of mushroom soup and onion soup mix

Gwen on February 12, 2014

I found a great Chicken Chili Taco soup that I make but I take the chicken out and it's a great low cal soup that goes to work with me ALOT.

Kris Angaran on February 12, 2014

I love my slow cooker but because I am only cooking for myself I have been using a Thermos bottle to cook in. It is the same principal as the bag. I boil my food to bring it up to temperature then put it into a preheated wide mouth thermos bottle, wrap it in a large towel to hold the heat in and it continues to cook.

Grammahugababy on February 12, 2014

My favorite recipe is one my Grandmother gave to me. She always called them Sausage Bites when I was growing up but it is actually made with Kielbasa.

Kielbasa Bites:

3 lbs Kielbasa
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup chili sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tbl worcestershire
1/4 tsp dry mustard
1 tbl lemon juice

1. Cut the kielbasa into appox 3in pieces
2. Boil on the stove for 40 minutes
3. Remove from pot and cut into bite sized portions
4. Mix all ingredients and kielbasa together in crockpot
5. Cook on low for 2 hours

FEAST!! Thanks Grandma!

Jennifer on February 12, 2014

You don't need to brown the stew meat first?
It sounds yummy!
I love chili in the crockpot (so I can make cornbread)!

Karen Nelson on February 12, 2014

My favorite crockpot receipe is steel cut oatmeal with pineapple and oranges. It's amazing!

Michelle on February 12, 2014

Jane on February 13, 2014

Stuffed peppers or meat loaf, placed in the pot, then cover peppers or meat loaf with foil so you can throw some scrubbed potatoes on top.

A favorite in the crock pot is Crock Pot Tacos. Quick easy and a crowd pleaser as well.

Roberta Dixon on February 13, 2014

I love roasts in them! I think everything turns out great!

Sue on February 13, 2014

I really like corned beef and cabbage with taters and carrots made in a slow cooker. I put the cabbage in to cook at the end when the beef/taters/carrots are done.

Donna Hodgkins on February 14, 2014

Vegetarian White Bean Chili is an easy favorite. Just a jar of salsa, northern beans, colby jack cheese and one chopped chipotle pepper in adobo sauce.

Lisa W on February 14, 2014

Joslin on February 15, 2014

Hawaiian chicken. Boneless chicken breast or thighs, BBQ sauce and pineapple tidbits. Serve over rice.

Tracey odom on February 15, 2014

It's so very hard to just pick one...so, I guess it'll have to be two. OK, three! Chili (White with Chicken & regular), Stroganoff and Beef Stew Thanks!

Michelle on February 15, 2014

I like cooking chicken breasts in a slow cooker and then shredding them for salads or sandwiches.

Amanda G on February 15, 2014

Chuck roast with gravy for roast beef poboys. In Louisiana, our poboys are sacrosanct. I put my seasoned roast in the crockpot with a jar of Heinz gravy, and it is served open face or on French bread or on little rolls at a party with provolone cheese are a crowd pleasing favorite.

Karen Eddlemon on February 15, 2014

My favorite slow cooker recipe is pulled pork, hands down!
