Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbook by Beth Hensperger and Julie Kaufmann
Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbook

Jennifer Sader, March 26, 2007

This cookbook has a great variety of recipes for the slow cooker that go way beyond the usual casseroles and chili recipes. It's especially great to see such a variety of healthy recipes, like ways to do beans and whole grains in the slow cooker. There is also a section of recipes that are not for the slow cooker designed to accompany the crockpot fare.

The recipes are simple, easy to follow, and use mostly familiar ingredients, though there are a few that will be new to many cooks. Unlike most crockpot cookbooks, it goes far beyond creations made with cream soups, hamburger, and cheese

The addition of nutritional information and pictures would have made this a five-star cookbook, but it is a great guide for price. I haven't seen anything else that comes close.
