A most versatile cooking apparatus

So, I love my slowcooker. I have made a stew every week since I got it -- in fact, today we had delicious left-over stew again (chicken that is so well done it just falls off the bone!). Best kitchen-related purchase this year, hands down.

gertvr, xaviar_nl, babarage and her boyfriend (that sounds a bit weird, he's certainly not a boy anymore) are coming over this Saturday. And obviously I want to cook something with the slowcooker! The dietary requirements of the group are a bit hard to satisfy in one go: we have people allergic to beans (including soy) and nuts, we have vegetarians, we have people who don't like cheese, and there are bonus-points to be earned if the meal is 'light'. Obviously, this makes it hard to find a recipe that fits all the requirements.
So I was thinking of making two dishes: one vegetarian (that could use tofu as protein source) and one non-vegetarian.

I am looking through recipes, and I stumbled upon the blog of someone who really loves her slowcooker. Stephanie resolved to cook with her slowcooker every day for a year (starting the 1st of January this year), and so far she is succeeding! Every day, she posts a recipe with photos and clear instructions, and I don't think she has ever done a repeat of an earlier recipe. Most impressive.

Obviously, a real treasure trove for me, and perhaps also for others who are looking for recipes to use with their crock pots/slowcookers.
