Slow Cooker Revolution

It seems like the slow cooker is going through a rebirth of popularity. I know I use mine all the time. The chefs/testers at America’s Test Kitchen (aka Cook’s Illustrated) have put together this collection of great recipes you can whip up using what used to be called a crock pot (not sure what prompted the name change).

This volume includes 200 recipes that cover pretty much anything you could or would want to make using this time honored cooking method.

Whether you’re a busy family on the run or just want to be lazy around the house, this cookbook could be just the thing to make sure you have a great meal waiting for you at the end of the day.

12 Days of Cookbooks: Not Your Mother’s Slow Cooker Cookbook

Day 7…

Bet you’ve been waiting for one like this. OK, the New England Soup book was up this same alley, but, it’s hard to beat a one pot meal at this time of year.

As a matter of fact, I usually have the crock pot going pretty much every Sunday. It’s not only easy, but, you usually end up with a pretty fantastic one pot meal. I call it the lazy man’s way to cook. I’m not saying I’m lazy or anything…

The Not Your Mother’s Slow Cooker Cookbook helps you get the best from your one pot. It’s really kind of amazing, a bunch of loose, uncooked ingredients go in… 6-9 hours later a wonderful meal comes out.

Learn how to make, The Easiest Beef Short Ribs, Mexican Black Beans with Pork, Parmesan Risotto or maybe try your hand at Crock Poached Salmon with Hollandaise. That last one sounds interesting.

Authors Beth Hensperger and Julie Kaufmann have put together a nice collection of simple comfort food recipes.

This is an awesome book for anyone on your cold weather gift list.
