The 150 Best Slow Cooker Recipes Review and Giveaway - Ends 11-03-11

Print Friendly and PDF

Are there any great cooks out there?  I got a great cookbook to tell you about, it The 150 Best Slow Cooker Recipes!  The recipes are fabulous!  I made four of the recipes so far and I can't wait to try all of them.  They all look so good. I made the Turkey Sloppy Joes and they were delicious!  The family just loved them.  The recipes were easy to follow and the font was easy to read.  The book has a nice collection of recipes.  One thing I like about a slow cooker is that you can throw everything into it early in the day and it will be ready just in time for dinner.

Here's a video I found on YouTube of Judith Finlayson with her first edition of The 150 Best Slow Cooker Recipes.

About The 150 Best Slow Cooker Recipes

The first edition of The 150 Best Slow Cooker Recipes has 425,000 copies in print and has been an outstanding success.  A lot has changed since then, from their tastes and interests in healthier food to a much wider range of slow cookers, so they decided to revisit this bestseller.  The result is a sensational slow cooker book that reflects today’s home cook.  This updated and revised edition features nearly 100 of your original favorites, plus an additional 75 new recipes that have been carefully sourced and selected by the author from some of her previous bestsellers.  It means more fish, seafood and vegetarian/vegan favorites, as well as more whole-grain offerings – this is important as more and more people are eating vegetarian at least some of the time and are consistently looking for lighter and healthier options.  People are also broadening the use of their slow cookers and often employing them for entertaining.

In a nod to the slow cooker’s humble beginnings, they’ve added more than a dozen sumptuous and tantalizing chili recipes, since nothing compares to chili prepared in a slow cooker.  Every chapter has been revisited, updated and expanded.
