  1. I preferred the old navigation of the site. I used to be able to find recipes easily by categories and now they're all messed up.
    Bring back the old site!

    For a minute I got excited when I found the category links still listed on the bottom of the site, but unfortunately they no longer work 🙁

  2. I wish there was a search for recipes where I can enter foods I have on hand and healthy slow cooker recipes would show up.

    1. Pat, you can use our search feature at the top-right of any page. Just type in the term "slow cooker", followed by the ingredients you are searching for, and any post on our site matching those criteria will pop up.
