Not Your Mother’s Slow Cooker Cookbook (Paperback)

Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbook

According to the authors, 80% of American households own a slow cooker. This whopping collection of 350 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 Hensperger (The Bread Bible) and Kaufmann (coauthor, with Hensperger, of The Ultimate Rice Cooker Cookbook) present is exactly the kind of comfort food typically associated with childhood snow days or family gatherings.

    Good recipes but poor directions

    All the recipes look good, though not light (I knew that).
    We’ve only tried one recipe so far – Chocolate Bread Pudding – and it was wonderful! I’m sure we’ll have many great meals from this book, though the recipes are NOT light!

    It’s all good!
    I’ve been cooking with slow cookers for decades but this book even taught me a few new tricks. A lot of crock pot cookbooks are very boring and rely too heavily on Campbell’s…

    Great cookbook!
    When we bought the new slowcooker, we realized that we didn’t have a lot of recipes for using it besides throw in a roast, some potatoes and carrots and let it go.

    Lots of up-to-date recipes for the crock pot using fresh ingredients…not just big cuts of meat with canned soup!
