Slow cookers are back! In fact, since the 1990’s these easy-to-use appliances have enjoyed a phenomenal increase in popularity. Which only makes sense.Because slow cookers are the perfect mealtime solution for families who want good, nutritious food with a minimum of effort: just throw a few ingredients into the cooker, close the lid, and come back to a hot, satisfying meal at the end of the day.
With million of slow cookers being sold each year throughout North America, there has never been a greater need for slow-cooker recipes that are easy, imaginative and delicious. And that’s just what you’ll find in America’s Best Slow Cooker Recipes.
Here are more than 125 dishes-including everything from appetizers to desserts-that demonstrate just how good slow cooked food can be. As you’d expect, the book contains plenty of recipes for flavorful soups and stews (try the Potato Leek Soup with Stilton or Burgundy Beef and Wild Mushroom Stew), as well as hearty bean and chilli dishes (black bean Moussaka and Football Sunday Chili). But slow cookers can do so much more. Sample beverages, such as Apple Cinnamon Sippers (worth making for the spicy aroma alone!), finger foods like Orental chicken Wings or one-pot meals such as Basque Chicken. And if you’ve ever used your slow cooker to make desserts, you’re in for a sweet surprise with after-dinner treats such as baked lemon sponge and Cranberry apple cobbler.
Try these tempting recipes and you’ll discover all the best of classic comfort food, combined with a thoroughly contemporary style that reflects the tastes and nutritional concerns of today’s families. And in additional to great-tasting food, this book provides a wealth of information on slow-cooker techniques, serving suggestions and kitchen tips.
Whether you’re new to the world of slow cookers-or just looking to explore the full orentential of your existing slow cooker-this may be the only cookbook you’ll ever need!
