I have crashed twice in a row while mixing healing potions.
Is there a log I can go look at to see what I am doing that is causing the crash? (Or do I just need to lay off the potions for a while?)

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\GameOverlayUI.exe.log you will find this helpful message:

There is a dialog in Steam to allow you to pass arguments to the game. It could be that one of them is for debug mode.
I found that it would start crashing at a savepoint more often if there were a lot of dead bodies scattered around. I went into the console and marked them for deletion, and then it got past that point. I also managed to delete a small lake in the process.
But it still crashes.
My Documents/My Games/Skyrim and open up
Then add this:
[Papyrus] fPostLoadUpdateTimeMS=500.0 bEnableLogging=1 bEnableTrace=1 bLoadDebugInformation=1
If the section
[Papyrus] already exists, then you might add it without the section identifier. Next time you start the game you should see a new folder called
"logs" inside that folder. And there is another folder called
"scripts" and inside that 4 new log files.
