Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Hoffman's Crockery Cookery (1982) has sold more than five million copies. Now she offers 150 new low-fat or reduced-fat recipes (actually, a few have more than 30 grams of fat, generally considered the cutoff point, per serving) to be made in the slow cooker, from Healthy Confetti Fish Stew to Teriyaki Turkey Loaf to Rhubarb-Apple Compote. The recipes are certainly easy, most of them a matter of combining all the ingredients in the cooker and turning it on, with maybe a last-minute addition or two. But the timing of these recipes does not always seem optimum for busy family cooks, who usually work at least eight-hour days. Yet many of the dishes must be turned off after only four or five hours, and Hoffman doesn't mention how to deal with this (maybe a timer will work in some cases, but surely it's not a good idea to let ingredients sit in the pot for hours). That aside, Hoffman has legions of fans who will eagerly welcome her latest book.

    Great tasting recipes! Healthy without sacrificing taste.

    I use my crockpot on an average 3-4 times a week. I own several of Mable's books and this one is by far my favorite. The layout of the book and the recipes make it very easy to read, use and understand. I am getting my mom a copy for her birthday.
