"Creative Slow-Cooker Meals" by Cheryl Moelier shows how to use two cookers for tasty and easy dinners. Most people do not like to cook in a slow cooker, claiming that everything turns to mush or and the flavors all combine into one and you can’t tell what you are eating. Using two slow cookers, you can still cook a healthy full course meal and each will have their own unique taste. Some people can’t seem to get the hang of what it takes to cook in a slow cooker. They seem to get it too full and then the food does not cook correctly. No more than two thirds full is sufficient. With over 200 recipes there is sure to be one that will find a way into your kitchen. How about pumpkin pies in a jar or brownies in a mug? Both of these can be cooked in a slow cooker. What is amazing is what all things one can do with this appliance.
I am a great collector of cook books and have shelves full. Even though I probably will never cook half of the meals they have in them there is just something about having a shelf full just in case. One thing that caught my attention as I was reading the recipes and getting hungrier by the minute was the little bible verse at the beginning of each chapter. From breakfast and cooking fresh, international foods to vegetarian and vegan right up to the back yard picnics and barbecues, there will be something for everyone in this book. One thing I have found out in my years of cooking is that if you had planned to use your slow cooker and time gets away before you get it started, most can always be cooked the traditional way on the stove or in the oven. For all the cooks out there that like to collect recipe books or just love to try something new look for "Creative Slow Cooker Meals" on the market in February 2012.
