    I got the Dutch Oven RockCrok and received it yesterday. I am anxious to try out some recipes that aren't in the ones they sent with the rockcrok. Does anyone have any ideas?

    This recipe is on Consultant's Corner. I tried it, and we like it!

    Cheesy Shells & Italian Sausage
    8 oz (250 g) bulk hot Italian pork sausage (see Cook’s Tip)
    3 garlic cloves
    3 cups (750 mL) unsalted chicken stock
    1 jar (24 oz/680 mL) marinara sauce (2½ cups/625 mL)
    12 oz (350 g) medium shell pasta
    4 oz (125 g) reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchâtel)
    ¼ cup (50 mL) fresh basil leaves
    1 cup (250 mL) seasoned croutons
    2 oz (60 g) fresh Parmesan cheese (½ cup/125 mL grated)
    1. Preheat broiler. Cook sausage in Rockcrok™ (2.5-qt/2.35-L) Everyday Pan or
    Rockcrok™ (4-qt/3.8-L) Dutch Oven over medium heat 4-6 minutes, breaking into
    crumbles with Mix ‘N Chop.
    2. Press garlic with Garlic Press into Pan. Cook 30-60 seconds or just until fragrant.
    3. Stir in stock, marinara and pasta to Pan. Increase heat to high; cover and bring to a boil.
    Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, 7-9 minutes or until pasta is
    cooked but firm.
    4. Meanwhile, chop basil with Chef’s Knife. Process croutons in Manual Food Processor
    until finely chopped; place in Classic Batter Bowl. Grate Parmesan with Microplane®
    Adjustable Fine Grater over batter bowl. Mix crouton/Parmesan mixture well.
    5. Remove Pan from heat. Stir in cream cheese and basil until blended. Sprinkle cheese
    mixture evenly over pasta. Place Pan 2-4 in. (5-10 cm) from heating element. Broil 1-2
    minutes or until top is golden brown.

    Probably wouldn't work because you can't put stoneware under the broiler..... the marshmallows might melt but won't get browned on top.

    I'm putting together a document with recipes for both of the rockcroks, would someone be willing to post the recipes that are included with the Everyday Pan?

    They said it wouldn't taste the same. I'd use milk chocolate chips if I were to try that.

    Yes - it worked just fine. I liked it but it's best to make it when there are enough people to eat it all while it's fresh - it looses something with reheating, IMHO.

    Oh, I definitely agree with you. I made the pineapple upside down cake today. I didn't get quite done in the middle. The part near the pineapple with the melted brown sugar and butter tasted good, but the rest of the cake needed more flavor. Am thinking about using the juice from the pineapple slices instead of water. It seemed to dry out some after it cooled.

    Chicken Pasta in RockCrok

    I LOVE the recipe... but worry about putting the pan in the microwave without something covering the bottom. Isn't this the only caution about this pan? We are not supposed to let it heat 'dry spots' for danger of cracking the coating.

    The test kitchens have said that dry spots can only occur when cooking on the stove top.

    I made the Smores Cake and everyone liked it, but to me the cake part didn't have much flavor.
    I was thinkiing of trying it with a brownie mix as the base, any thoughts?

    Today I made an apple pie/cobbler in the 2.5 quart Rockcrock. I always make my pie in the deep dish pie plate but it had another pie in it so I just made my apple filling that I normally make and put it in the pan and then I made a top pie crust and baked like normal. It turned out really good! That crock can be used for so many different recipes.....love it!

    I am really getting excited for ideas for the new Rock Crok! Thanks for sharing your pie story, good to know that it's a great alternative to make pies in! Every idea is something else to add as we talk about it in shows! I'm not much of an adventurous cooker, so I really appreciate when other people experiment and share! Thanks!

    I just got the dutch oven size rock crok but I am not that impressed with the recipes that came with it. Did anyone share the ones that came with the every day pan? I really want to love this and use it a lot but also really want to try all the recommended recipes. I didn't see anything in the files but i might not have done the right search. Thanks!

    I have the 2.5 qt. Rockcrok and love it. I let it sit in its box for a while before pulling it out because I wasn't really impressed with it initially. But one day I made myself try it and now every recipe I see, I start to wonder how I can change it to use in the Rockcrok. Especially slow cooker recipes. I put together a booklet of about 8 simple recipes I've tried and uploaded onto the Recipes section but I don't know how to attach it here. I'm really impressed with how well it cooks meat of any kind. Pork, beef, chicken are so succulent. It combines all the qualities of our stoneware bakers but you can brown in it and finish under the broiler. Love, love, love it! I'm embarrassed to say that the only PC recipes I've made in it are the S'more Cake and Chicken Tortilla Casserole but I'm going to try more.

    My favorite part is that most of the recipes I've tried in it can be thrown together in literally 2-5 minutes. Then I throw it in the oven and let it bake. You don't always have time to let something bake 30-60 minutes but when you do, it's great. And if you don't, you can use a microwave recipe.

  31. If I want to cook boneless, skinless, chicken breasts with a little rub in the microwave, do I need to do anything other than, well, just rub 'em and cook them?

    Here is what I collected and put together from all the recipes that have been shared on Facebook: http://tiny.cc/EverdayPanRecipes

    And this is the collection for the RC that has recipes that use the Dutch Oven RC: http://tiny.cc/Rockinrecipes

    You'll need to change the info to yours before you share it with your customers. It's free to open your own Evernote account. You can also copy and paste and create a file in Word I guess if you don't want to use EN. ;)

    Honestly, I'd highly recommend you create an account with EN. It's free, it's awesome. ;) You can then copy and paste it into word once you copy the note over into your account. You don't have to continue using EN. I did that once when someone else shared something in EN. I created an account just so I could copy it and then didn't really use it much because I didn't understand the system. Then I found a FB group of consultants who use it and watched some tutorials and I fell in love with it. Anyway...I'm not sure of another work around. I'll ask on the EN group and see if someone can help me. I'll be back...
