    I use it all the time. Nothing beats a meal already made when you get home. Many dishes can easily be converted to slow cooker recipes. I make chicken gumbo, chili (texas style), chili con carne, slow simmered pork ribs, stews, enchiladas, and soups.

    Here are some recipes that I make often:

    Cook the sausage and the chicken and make the roux the night before. Mix everything before setting the crockpot for 8 hours on low. Cook some minute rice if you want and serve:

    Cook the beef until medium rare the night before and just mix them for 8 hours on low:

    We make this alot. Super easy. Get a good cut of beef roast. Put in crockpot in the morning on your way out the door. Add 1 can of Campbell's french onion, 1 can of golden mushroom. Put on low around 7-8am, you have a great dinner 5pm or later. The soups with the meat juices make a great gravy. Best roast I have ever had.

    I've actually made that before. I don't remember how it tasted though.

    Pulled pork and beef roast always come out good in the crock pot.

    I am using mine more frequently for cooking the batches of chicken I do each week. I'll usually throw in the chicken, as well as a bunch of potatoes (if your diet allows) and carrots. They do excellent in low/slow heat.

    As far as marinade, you don't need a ton when using a crock pot, but I try to vary it each week. Sometimes it's beer and hot sauce (my favorite - but again - diet allowing), or citrus juices ( a mix of orange, lemon, and a bit of lime is awesome).

    Sear on high heat 2-3 minutes a side beforehand for extra awesomeness.

    Iron skillet, if you've got it.
