Cookbook Giveaway: The Slow Cook Book

Chicken Jambalaya

Spicy Chicken Jambalaya is easy to make in the slow cooker.

The idea of prepping dinner in the morning and letting it cook away all day long is so appealing that I’m always on the lookout for great slow-cooker recipes. The Slow Cook Book by Heather Whinney is a treasure trove of about 200 slow-cooker recipes ranging from stews and casseroles to curries and roasts and even desserts.

And anyone who has ever scooped gray veggies out of their slow cooker (guilty!) will appreciate her chapter on slow-cooker techniques, complete with step-by-step photos and how-tos. And, as a bonus, if you don’t own a slow cooker or you prefer not to use one, each recipe includes a “traditional method” for slow cooking on the stove or in the oven. So start making easy and nourishing, budget-friendly dinners by rediscovering your slow cooker.

Here are a few recipes from The Slow Cook Book to help you get started.
Chicken Jambalaya
Pea, Ham and Potato Soup
Beef Pot Roast
Risotto Primavera
Asian Pork Ribs

Serve tender, slow cooked Asian Pork Ribs with rice for an amazing weeknight meal.

    I use my slow cooker for everything from roasts to soups and everything in between, but I think my favorite thing to make is yogurt. It tastes great, and it is much cheaper than store bought.

    I'd be slow cooking some spicy, lowfat black bean chili with chicken! It is something I make for our annual office chili party day. It is so good!

    I don't know yet…I just bought my first slow cooker yesterday! Yipeee!
    My husband looked at it skeptically and said, "What do you make in that…stew?"
    So you see, I could REALLY use this cook book!
