Cookbook Giveaway: The Slow Cook Book

By: Kirsten Vala

The idea of prepping dinner in the morning and letting it cook away all day long is so appealing that I’m always on the lookout for great slow-cooker recipes. The Slow Cook Book by Heather Whinney is a treasure trove of about 200 slow-cooker recipes ranging from stews and casseroles to curries and roasts and even desserts.

And anyone who has ever scooped gray veggies out of their slow cooker (guilty!) will appreciate her chapter on slow-cooker techniques, complete with step-by-step photos and how-tos. And, as a bonus, if you don’t own a slow cooker or you prefer not to use one, each recipe includes a “traditional method” for slow cooking on the stove or in the oven. So start making easy and nourishing, budget-friendly dinners by rediscovering your slow cooker.

Here are a few recipes from The Slow Cook Book to help you get started.

We’re giving away one copy of The Slow Cook Book to one lucky winner. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment telling us what you like to make in your slow cooker.
