My Review: What a wonderful idea and cookbook...using two slow-cookers to create your meals. Sometimes I start to worry "literally" about what to make for dinner. With this cookbook there are numerous ideas, and great recipes.
Turing to one page the Recipe are Harvest-Time Halibut Chowder, and across the page is the dessert Rhubarb Crumble....oh YUM! For those who like to wake up to breakfast...yes! There are overnight delights to Overnight Oats and in the other cooker a topper of Triple Berry Topping. Or how about Peaches & Cream and served with Heavenly Hash Browns.
One big hint in the beginning....10 reasons to read the directions...oh yes I have a habit sometimes of trying to do it my way...Read the Directions!
How about coming home to the sent of Rosemary Chicken, along with Cooked Apple Slices. Or Sweet & Sour Wings and in the other Asian Vegetables. There are also included in this wonder of a book recipes for Vegetarian and Vegan, Dairy Free, Gluten Free..something for everyone.
This has been wonderful when having that special diet company.

  1. I love my slow cooker. My husband calls me "The Crockpot Crackpot" since I use it so much. I will definitely have to check out this book.
