One of the best investments I have made is a slow cooker. This has saved me a lot of hassle and I can prepare something, leave it and do more pressing things during the day knowing this won't be spoilt.
The one thing I wasn't sure of was how to throw dinners together that were tasty and didn't burn and this booklet of 101 ideas arrived at the right time.
Having been a long time subscriber of GOOD FOOD MAGAZINE[ of which I highly recommend,] this was advertised and reduced at the time of purpose. Clearly fate!
The contents are slightly different in this book than the suppers they do.
BREAKFAST, LUNCHES AND BRUNCHES[ Yes, breakfast in a slow cooker, for example- Apple, pear and cherry compote, heated together to make a wonderful puree.
BEEF, PORK AND LAMB
FISH AND SEAFOOD
VEGETARIAN, VEGETABLES AND SIDE DISHES
SWEET, JAMS AND CHUTNEYS.
Honestly, this book opened my eyes to the ways the food can be blended, the amount of flavours that are piared up in this book I would never in a million years have thought they would have blended together well at all.
CHILLI CON CARNE always goes down well
CRAB STUFFED TOMATOES have been a major hit
SELF SAUCING PUDS!
Yes, this book will show you anything, almost anything can be cooked in a slow cooker.
The meals are reasonable and won't blow your budget and very quick to put together.
I would happily recommend this book to help you broaden your horizons with slow cookers! :)
Recently got a slow cooker and wanted to actually know what to put into it. went to waterstones and got this book for £4.99. I thought this was a bargain for 101 recipes.
This book is neatly set out and pictures which is good because it shows how you can set it out when the product is finally finished. It sets out the nutritional values as well of each meal which is good if your watching your weight.
It is very useful it tells you whether to put it onto high or low and also how long it will take which is good because i was able to put it on hours before the fiancée got home and as he arrived i dished it up, boiling hot and the recipe was full proof the timings are perfect and the actual recipes are easy to follow. It uses food that you have in your cupboards where as other books i have found i had to make a special trip to asda.
Its small so you can store it in the cupboard next to the slowcooker for safe keeping.
The types of recipes in there are simple such as a cottage pie to a homemade curry and chocolate puddings.
