I am looking for a good resource for organic/raw cooking that is mostly crock-pot type stuff that I can start in the morning before classes and it will be ready for dinner. Does anyone have suggestions of cookbooks that have mostly meals that a family...including a three year old...would eat? I mostly wind up getting roast and various veggies which is getting quite boring... :/

I make alot of chicken and rice dishes in the crockpot.. You can pretty much throw anything in there provided you have enough liquids.. I also make lots of soup.. Right now I have a roast in the pot.. Lazy cabbage rolls are really good to make I find quite a lot of the recipes love to center around processed foods.. I just leave it out or run with the basic idea of it and adjust accordingly..

I like that. So you don't really follow recipes mostly, just toss it in till it tastes and looks right? How much water do you add per x amount of rice?

As much as it calls for on the package then about 1/4 cup more, less if there are lots of veggies since they seem to add more water as they cook.. It varies on what I'm making. If I'm putting tomatoes in I don't add any extra water, It's really kind of an experiment to begin with. I'm also at a really high altitude so rice will cook different for me then you If it is too watery I throw some corn starch in to thicken it up..
