|Crock Pot Goodness: An Oxymoron?

My parents are having the kitchen in our house remodeled, which means that for roughly 2.5 weeks we will not have access to it - only an electric skillet, our fridge, and our microwave. In anticipation of this, my mother capitalized on a 6-quart crock pot. Despite being Midwestern, however, we have no personal experience with crock pot cookery. We have a basic variety of meats and veggies in the house to combine in the crock pot (esp. chicken), do not generally fear spices, and have a general idea of how slow cooking works (prep things, dump in pot with flavorings, set, forget for many hours), but don't have much in the way of concrete recipes.
So I decided to query the hive mind. Do you have a favorite dish that is prepared in a crock pot? Do you have a favored website that deals in such things? General advice?
Thank you in advance.
