Goodreads Synopsis: Leave it to the experts at Martha Stewart to figure out the best ways to use this favorite appliance. The 110 recipes in this book make the most of the slow cooker’s assets (low heat, hands-off cooking), while also uncovering its hidden potential. Readers will find that they can not only braise cuts of meat until meltingly tender and let soups and stews simmer away untended, but also gently poach fish, cook up creamy scalloped potatoes, and bake a perfect cheesecake. This book has everything home cooks need to maximize flavor and make life a whole lot easier.
There are so many good recipes in this collection with beautiful photos to go with them. Several of the meals are taken to the next level, making everything that much more of a great addition to any kitchen. It has perfect recipes for poaching fish, making scalloped potatoes, and even one for cheesecake and cinnamon rolls.
It makes the simple slow cooker recipes into dishes that are more complex, but without all the work of cooking straight on the stove. It’s a cookbook that makes several meals a lot easier to make as you just place it in the slow cooker for whatever time and heat specified and that is all there is to it. It makes it even easier with the tips added throughout the pages, along with the basics at the beginning and a how-to for those needing a little extra help in the use of the slow cooker.
There are some recipes that have a little more steps than others, but the process is worth it once you get to serve it to your family and friends. Especially once they get to eat it and it tastes like you took all day in the kitchen to make it. Some of those recipes include Duck Ragu, Indian-Style Fish Curry, Root Vegetable Confit with Pistachio Pesto, Sticky Toffee Pudding, and many more.
This collection has a variety of recipes and all have been tested before added into the pages, along with a photo of each recipe throughout the book. It makes this cookbook that much better as there aren’t many out there with colorful photos for every single recipe. This one has 110 of them, plenty to choose from and try out.
It’s definitely a cookbook to have for any person that uses a slow cooker often and those that are new to it will find that they will love cooking with it also. Especially with all the little extras almost to the end of the book, it is the perfect slow cooker cookbook to have in once kitchen or to gift to a loved one.
