Publisher Comments:

You probably own a slow cooker — 80 percent of American households do. For more than thirty years, its unbeatable convenience and practicality have made it a staple of busy families, enabling anyone to return to a home-cooked meal at the end of a hectic day. Many slow cooker recipes, however, have relied on less-than-healthy convenience products.

Now, Beth Hensperger and Julie Kaufmann's Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbook takes a completely fresh look at cooking with this popular appliance. This comprehensive collection of 350 recipes combines the ease of slow cooking with the fresh, wholesome ingredients and exciting flavors of today's kitchen.

For days when there's just no time for prep, there's Orange and Honey Chicken Drumsticks or Country Ribs with Onions, Apples, and Sauerkraut. For (slightly!) less hectic days there's Tangy Tomato Brisket or Lentil and Red Pepper Soup. Stay out of the kitchen when guests arrive with Duck Breasts with Port Wine Sauce or wake up to breakfast with Hot Apple Granola Oatmeal. Hensperger and Kaufmann offer dishes for every time frame, without compromising on taste, quality, or variety. And Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbookshowcases the best of home cooking while taking advantage of a global melting pot of flavors — so cooks can serve Chicken and Shrimp Jambalaya one day and Japanese Beef Curry Rice another. All the classic slow cooker recipes are here, plus many more adventuresome and innovative dishes. There is also practical information on the different types of slow cookers, their latest accessories, and what sizes are best for what purposes.

Review:

"According to the authors, 80% of American households own a slow cooker. This whopping collection of 350 recipes is reason enough to unearth that Crock-Pot from the attic or invest in one of the new high-tech models. The title, however, is a misnomer, and not just because the book includes a recipe for 'Mom's Beef Stew.' Much of what Hensperger (The Bread Bible) and Kaufmann (coauthor, with Hensperger, of The Ultimate Rice Cooker Cookbook) present is exactly the kind of comfort food typically associated with childhood snow days or family gatherings. To use the word 'hearty' in describing these recipes is to state the obvious. There are more than a dozen oatmeals and porridges, ranging from Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal to Creamy Cornmeal Porridge. Soups include Vegetarian Split Pea, French Onion, and White Bean with Bacon. Twenty-four types of baked beans are mere prelude for the 14 chili options, including 'Senator Barry Goldwater's Arizona Chili' (which gives new meaning to the phrase 'bowl of red'). Other recipes are for poultry, meat and fish dishes, and New and Old World dishes are plentiful. The only letdown is the 'Not-from-the-Slow Cooker Accompaniments' chapter, with its uninspired choices like Baked Rice, and Mixed Green Salad. But the concluding pages, full of puddings and fruit desserts, atone with sinful treats like Chocolate Peanut Butter Pudding Cake and Rum-Butterscotch Bananas."

Deborah Fochler, February 23, 2008 (view all comments by Deborah Fochler)
A very unusual, extremely useful group of recipes designed for the slow cooker. Many years ago, when I was a working mom, it was great to put in beef stew or soups and an occasional casserole. But about ten years ago, I gave away my slow cooker. Then, a friend gave me this book - I went out and bought a new slow cooker and have rediscovered why it has remained a much used utensil for so long. But, dont expect the usual recipes from this book. They are easy, different, extremely delicious and will surprise and amaze you that someone else hasnt taken the time to invent new recipes for the slow cooker. It is truly the easiest way to cook, with no fuss, easy clean up and a home cooked meal. Great collection of recipes.

Jennifer Sader, March 26, 2007 (view all comments by Jennifer Sader)
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.
