Crock Pot Meals?

I need a good crock pot recipe for meal I'm preparing. My mother in law is coming so I have to impress her. I recently purchased a crock pot for the first time and am loving cooking with it.
I am in search of unique crock pot (slowcooker) recipes that you wouldn't find in a cookbook.

These are some of the best crock pot meals:

Place the cooked macaroni in a 3-1/2 quart or larger crock pot that has been coated with nonstick cooking spray. Add the remaining ingredients except 1 cup of the cheese; mix well. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 cup cheese, then cover and cook on LOW for 5 to 6 hours, or until the mixture is firm and golden around the edges. Do not remove the cover or stir until the mixture has finished cooking.
