700 Great Slow Cooker Recipes
he author, Phyllis Pellman Good, lauds the merits of slow cooking to '
keep your food-spending in line, feed your household more nutritionally than if you relied on take-out or packaged meals and buoy up your efforts to sit down daily around the table with the people you love.
' She tells us that she has added information about how to maximize the benefits of a slow cooker. She has swapped in new recipes and suggested a few gadgets that make your slow cooker even more usable and dependable.
here are recipes for everything from
Absent Cook Stew
, with a wide range in between. Keep in mind these are all recipes submitted to the author – so she is offering family favorites from all over the good, old, cooking US of A. Some I glommed in on as ones I would love to sample are:
Chicken Enchilada Casserole
Slow Cooker Spaghetti Sauce
Awfully Easy Barbecued Ribs
Mexican Corn Bread
here are too, too many to list all of what I'm sure will become favorites. The small drawback that I see is that, with today's concern for nutritional values of ingredients, there are none listed in this really fine cookbook. But my feller would love the barbecued ribs. My family would love the vegetarian chili. There are enough recipes to satisfy every palate.
