If you are like me, cooking a good meal is something I do not have the time to do on a regular basis. So, I rely on my crockpot a lot. I love the ease of putting ingredients together in a pot and the flavors melding together and simmering into a delicious meal. To get ideas for these meals, I use slow cooker cookbooks that I check out at the East Lansing Public Library. My two favorite slow cooker cookbooks are Slow Cooker Revolution and Slow Cooker Revolution 2opens a new window by America’s Test Kitchenopens a new window. These cookbooks introduce good, doable recipes from soups to stews to chocolate cheesecake; all made in a crockpot. I had no idea you could make a cheesecake in a slow cooker. A couple of other slow cooker cookbooks I like are Skinny Slow Cookeropens a new window which has 150 calorie-smart recipes and Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cookeropens a new window.
Check out these cookbooks and bon appetit!
