Book Review: Make It Fast, Cook It Slow
I had gone through a few slow cooker phases before but quickly got bored of the same old stew and casserole recipes. Plus doing lots of extra prep work in the morning is not an option! This book opened up a whole new world of possibilities for me and my slow cooker. Everything from breakfast to dessert is covered here, and the "Fake-Outs" section has some great takes on many of our regular restaurant favorites.
The author, Stephanie O'Dea, is a busy blogger and mom so the recipes are all kids tested. The book has received great reviews on Amazon (read them here ) but I do tend to agree with some of the negative comments. If you're looking for a really refined, gourmet cookbook, this is probably not for you. However if you want to make quick, and easily modified meals with ingredients you probably already have then I highly recommend Make It Fast, Cook It Slow: The Big Book of Everyday Slow Cooking.
