My husband says I have every small kitchen appliance ever made. That’s not quite true, but I admit I am a SKA junkie. And I do have a favorite of course, and that title belongs to my slow cooker. I LOVE IT. No, really…I LOVE IT! Put stuff in it, close the lid, turn it on & walk away. Hours later take the lid off and ta-da, something yummy is inside.
Most of you know that I’m on a mission to get fitter, healthier and shed a few pounds. I’ve been trying to find some new recipes that I can make in my slow cooker. This book is full of them.
The Table of Contents include:
The Main Course: Chicken, Turkey, Beef, Pork, Bean Etc.
Appetizers, Snacks * Spreads
There is also and index and an About the Author section.The book has over 500 recipe, and each recipe has a suggested slow cooker size and gives the serving size. My favorite thing though is that they all have the nutritional value. That’s priceless for someone who had dietary limits or is trying to get healthier.
The recipes are not that expensive to make, and most have just a few main ingredients, with the other ingredients being ones you usually have on hand.

Now I try to find recipes with curry in it so I can taste it’s yummyness. And look what I found in this cook book:
I plan on making this semi-soon, so I’ll be posting about how it turned out. I’ll probably use ground chuck instead of ground beef and will definitely be using brown rice instead of white.
