Large new softcover book published 2005. 520 pages, lots of beautiful colour photos. The ultimate Slow Cooker recipe book!
The slow cooker is perfect for today's lifestyle, in which everyone is time- and energy-conscious, economy-wise, concerned about nutrition, and demanding of great flavor. Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbook offers a way of traditional cooking that's new and fresh with over 350 slow cooker recipes for no-fuss preparation and delicious eating.
This whopping collection of 350-plus recipes is reason enough to unearth that Crock-Pot from the attic or invest in one of the new high-tech models. The title, however, is a misnomer, and not just because the book includes a recipe for "Mom's Beef Stew." Much of what Beth Hensperger and Julie Kaufmann present is exactly the kind of comfort food typically associated with childhood snow days or family gatherings. To use the word "hearty" in describing these recipes is to state the obvious.
There are more than a dozen oatmeals and porridges, ranging from Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal to Creamy Cornmeal Porridge. Soups include Vegetarian Split Pea, French Onion, and White Bean with Bacon. Twenty-four types of baked beans are mere prelude for the 14 chili options, including "Senator Barry Goldwater's Arizona Chili" (which gives new meaning to the phrase "bowl of red"). Other recipes are for poultry, meat and fish dishes, and New and Old World dishes are plentiful. There is also a "Not-from-the-Slow Cooker Accompaniments" chapter which offers recipes including Baked Rice, a variety of pancakes and Mixed Green Salad with a range of salad dressing recipes. The final chapters are full of puddings and fruit desserts, with sinful treats like Chocolate Bread Pudding and Rum-Butterscotch Bananas, plus a chapter on slow cooker preserves including jams, chutneys and sauces..
