    Um....no idea. I normally dislike hot dogs and know little to nothing about making them, so I'm not entirely sure. We bought them at Whole Foods.

    Took the shrimp I baked, and used them on an Asian sort of inspired salad with the leftover boy choy, lettuce, spinach, red cabbage, carrots, and fried noddles.

    I made a pretty simple spaghetti -- peeled and crushed a bucketload of tomatoes, added garlic, onions and other spices, and let that come together in the slow cooker for several hours. The meatballs were a blend of beef, pork and lamb that I ground together -- seared them on the stove, then let them finish in the crock pot with the sauce. Topped with some shredded Romano cheese, and served with some garlic toast and a Romaine salad (balsamic vinegar and olive oil dressing).

    ^I've never been able to figure out the slow cooker. Everything is always too dry, too soggy, and just plain overcooked.

    Depends on what you put in there. For roasts, or beef cuts like round, I'd never use anything else -- there's so much connective tissue that needs to be broken down that low and slow is the only way to cook it. I also love mine for chili, red sauces, dips and soups.

    It's easy to overcook stuff in a slow cooker -- low and slow still has a time limit. It's just a matter of remembering that the rate of evaporation of moisture within meat is a constant based on temperature, so you time things accordingly.

    My wife bemoans connective tissue when slicing open rodents for work. I'm afraid of what she might toss into the crock pot.
