Not Your Mother’s® Slow Cooker Family Favorites
Beth Hensperger knows what families want: kid-friendly fare that’s wholesome, economical, and appealing to adults, too. And she knows what busy parents need: recipes that do all that and come together quickly with a minimum of muss and fuss. In Not Your Mother’s Slow Cooker Family Favorites, Beth provides a lifeline for busy families who want delicious, homemade meals.
How does she do it? It’s all thanks to the magic of the slow cooker. In this latest installment in the best-selling Not Your Mother’s® series, Beth uses this well-loved appliance to make short work of everyone’s favorite family dishes. You’d expect to find chilis, soups, and stews in a slow cooker cookbook, and this one features them aplenty—from Big Sky Bison Chili to Creamy White Chicken Chili, from Hearty Beef and Veal Stew to Cinnamon Lamb Stew with Carrot Couscous, from Not Your Mother’s Chicken Noodle Soup to Most Excellent Mushroom-Barley Soup. But Beth proves that there’s much more to slow cooker family fare. How about scrumptious breakfast and brunch foods such as Cheddar-Egg Strata or Green Chile Slow Cooker Omelet with Warm Fresh Tomato Salsa? Or beverages like Hot Cocoa with Marshmallows, Buttered Mulled Apple Juice, and even Fresh Ginger Ale? And kids (and grownups!) are sure to love Turkey Taco Salad, Barbecue Burgers, and Crock Macaroni and Tillamook Cheese. Dips, fondues, wings, ribs, risotto, you name it—if it can be prepared in a slow cooker, it’s in here. And the recipes were all created with ease and convenience in mind, geared to meet the needs and schedules of modern families. A thorough introduction gives readers all the information they need on slow cooker techniques and equipment; handy tips sprinkled throughout will turn anyone into a slow cooker expert in no time.
Forget takeout, fast food, and frozen fare. For meals that are convenient, budget-friendly, and oh-so-good, let the slow cooker bring your family back to the table. No, it’s not your mother’s—it’s way better!
