Publisher Comments:

Fondue pot, chafing dish, punch bowl, sauceboat, chili pot, soup tureen - and much more!
 
The slow cooker is simply a must-have entertaining assistant. With these fabulous 300-plus recipes, you can offer your guests the kind of relaxed, welcoming, confident hospitality that comes from being able to prepare fresh, delicious food ahead of time.
 
For casual entertaining, this book offers snazzy and flavorful recipes like Slow Cooker Cassoulet, Gringo Chili for a Crowd, Devilishly Good Beef Short Ribs, Chicken Mole Enchilada Casserole.
For holiday entertaining, guests will savor Slow Steamed Artichokes; Candied Yams with Apples and Cranberries; Prosciutto, Parmesean, and Pine Nut Stuffing; Old-Fashioned Turkey Breast with Pan Gravy.
 
And throughout this volume are treats like Champagne Fondue, Maple-Glazed Pecans, Plum Sauce Chicken Wings, Eggplant Caponata, and Slow-Poached Pears with Warm Chocolate Sauce.

Even if you have a smaller household, you can still take advantage of the ease, convenience, and versatility that are the hallmarks of slow cookers. These 125 recipes are for delicious meals specially created for preparation in a small (1 ½ -to 3 ½-quart) slow cooker. Beth Hensperger showcases fresh, wholesome ingredients (rather than relying on packaged convenience foods) to create fabulous brand-new dishes and contemporary takes on classic favorites, including Moroccan-Spiced Tomato Chicken with Almonds, Individual Pot Roasts, Jerked Pulled Pork with Rum Barbecue Sauce, Fresh Corn Risotto, and Chipotle Black Bean Vegetable Soup. The flavors are so big, the small slow cooker can barely contain them!

Review:

"Though this unintimidating volume (following Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbook) includes many recipes that actually do sound like classic dishes from your mother's or grandmother's recipe file (Hot Buttered Rum, Scalloped Potatoes and Beef Burgundy), many-like Tequila and Pineapple Barbecue Sauce, Pumpkin-Sage Risotto, Chipotle and Orange Pork Ribs, and Lemon Cornmeal Cake in Fragrant Fig Leaves reflect a more modern aesthetic. All recipes are accessible and straightforward enough for a wide range of slow cooker users; many are adapted from other cookbooks and even the Williams-Sonoma catalog. The first two chapters, 'Appetizer Dips, Savory Fondues, and Party Nuts' and 'The Electric Punch Bowl,' include such party-friendly recipes as Caramel Brie, Buttery Rosemary Pecan Halves, and Mulled Cider with Cardamom and Saffron. Subsequent chapters feature recipes appropriate for everyday meals: Red Bean Stew and Rice, Paniolo Beef Stew, and Tapioca Pudding. While at-home chefs seeking special occasion dishes will find some suitable ideas, this book can serve as a reliable resource whether or not there's a party going on." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Hensperger and Kaufmann show that the slow cooker is the perfect tool for effortless entertaining on weekends and even weeknights, with more than 300 new recipes specially created to serve larger groups. Recipes range from casual to formal, and this is the only slow cooker cookbook that also includes tips on how to use your slow cooker for a wide variety of entertaining options and how to scale up those recipes for even more guests. It covers all the bases: appetizers, punches, dips, soups, entrees, fondues, desserts--all can be prepared ahead of time in the slow cooker, so that hosts will be able to focus on the guests, not the preparations.
