I just saw the post on slow cooker recipes. I have had a cooker for over a year, never used it, because I can't find any really long cooking time recipes. On week days I am away from home for 8hrs - 9hrs. Any recipes for that time period, I can't seem to find any. Is it a safety issue? Especially would like non meat, fish is ok recipes (for my husband) a short rib would be good (for me!).
