Default Cookbook Review

I've been looking for recipes for my crock pot that do not involve cream of
something or other soups or other processed foods. Mainly due to our food
allergies. Although I did find some things on the Internet, I still
continued to look. And now I have found what I was looking for! The book
is called "Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbook", by Beth Hensperger and
Julie Kaufman.

Some of the recipes won't work or can easily be modified for our food
allergies. And some are just too high in carbs for us. But there are many
doable recipes. All involve, real, whole foods.

I have not tried any of the recipes yet, but they do look good!

I've got something in my slow cooker as we speak My daughter has a habit
of cooking 3-4 different little things for every meal so consequently we had
sausages, blade steak on the bone, chicken tenderloins I marinated in Thai
Beef Marinade and some franks all needing to be eaten today I threw in
the steak as is, didn't cut it, added a can of tomatoes, some chopped onions
and garlic and sliced carrots. I'll eat my serve as it is but add some rice
or pasta for the others. With some greens it will all be good

I've never tried steak in there!

It is now imperative that I find more things I can cook at home. Angela is
going to try out for the competitive team at her dance studio. Not sure
when the auditions are or if she will make it, but if she does that will be
an added expense. We can't keep dining out like we've been doing.

I never have either but I was too lazy to cut it into stew type pieces. It
melted in the mouth, stayed on the bone and had the stew flavour.

Hey Julie, thanks for the recommendation. I stumbled on a site that
had some soup and vegetable recipe excerpts from this cookbook, and it
looks just like something I've been looking for. I agree about
needing to modify the receipes a bit, but I like the emphasis on
nonprocessed foods. Did you see the black bean soup recipe? yum!

I have a Hamilton Beach slowcooker with three ceramic inserts ranging
in size. I mostly use the smallest one for soup, and a larger one for
pot roast or stewing a whole chicken. The largest one is good for
making stock cause I can throw an armload of vegetables or bones or
whatever in it.

Oooh! Sounds like it worked well then!

I have four different ones. A little one for dip. Two medium sized ones
and a large one. I find I mainly use the large one now. But if I do a beef
roast, I still need another one for the vegetables.
