The Great American Slow Cooker Book: 500 Easy Recipes for Every Day and Every Size Machine
Millions of people are turning to slow cookers for their weeknight meals yet often can't find recipes that match their exact machine. Adapting recipes meant for a different-size cooker doesn't work--getting the right level of spice in your Vietnamese soup or keeping pulled pork tender requires having ingredients in the right proportion. But now, Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough have decoded slow cookers, and each of their recipes includes ingredient proportions for 2-3 quart, 4-5 quart, and 6-8 quart machines, guaranteeing a perfect fit no matter what machine you own. Each recipe is labeled for its level of difficulty and nutritional value, and they cover every kind of dish imaginable: delicious breakfast oatmeals, slow-braised meats, succulent vegetables, sweet jams and savory sauces, decadent desserts. This is the slow cooker book to end them all.
This book has it all. I am so happy that I was chosen to review it. I have tried about 5 recipes so far and this weekend I am going to try at least 5 more. Slow cooker recipes are fun and easy. Since we work an hour from home and we aren't home that much using the slow cooker makes our lives easier. It's nice to have a good, healthy home cooked meal waiting for us when we get home from work.
