The 150 Best Slow Cooker Recipes (Second Edition), from Judith Finlayson, seemed just the cookbook for me, since my poor crock pot sits on a shelf …neglected. I usually concoct my own recipes, but since I don’t use this appliance often, a bit of guidance would be helpful.
This slow cooker cookbook is packed with recipes, illustrated with huge vivid pictures of the completed dishes. This is just what I love in a cookbook. I want to see what the results should look like, and many options are essential. Here is an example of a recipe/photo page (note: my junkie camera doesn’t really do it justice, but you get the idea).
10th Anniversary Edition!
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 our tastes and interests in healthier food to a much wider range of slow cookers, so we 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.
Judith Finlayson believes strongly that eating is one of life’s greatest pleasures. As a food-writer and journalist, Judith has spent much of her life seeking out memorable food experiences. Her other best-selling cookbooks include The Healthy Slow Cooker, 175 Essential Slow Cooker Classics, The Complete Whole Grains Cookbook, and Delicious and Dependable Slow Cooker. She lives with her husband and daughter in Toronto. Judith also has 750 Best Appetizer Recipes releasing this Fall.
