Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Food writer and proud owner of five slow cookers, Jager blows the dust off of Grandma's favorite cooking device and tells working women how they can make "love-me-tender" meals that will bring husbands and boyfriends to their knees-all without spending more than 33 minutes (and, in some cases, less than seven) in the kitchen. Jager persuasively outlines the advantages of "doing it slowly" (saving on electricity, preparing meals the night before, etc.) and lays out her recipes in an accessible, course-by-course manner. The dishes range from the inventive (Prune Pockets Stuffed with Wild Rice and Smoked Turkey; Lamb in Ginger-Pear wine Sauce with Lima Beans) to the basic (Easy Corned Beef Brisket; Beef and Vegetable Stew), but all are guaranteed to leave the chef with plenty of time for other mouth-watering activities. Though geared more toward women, with its sassy girl talk sidebars, this book would also be a good companion for men looking for tasty recipes that are free of "fancy foreign f words like fricassee and flambe."

Caramelized Red Onion Dip

QE

A giant step up from conventional onion dip, this highly addictive version is heavenly with crackers, bread sticks, and Melba toasts.

Yields 3 cups

2 red onions, finely chopped
1 1/2 tsp. oil
1 1/2 tsp. brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp. red wine vinegar
1 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese
1 1/2 cups sour cream
1 tsp. lemon juice

1. Combine red onions, oil, brown sugar, and red wine vinegar in slow cooker.
2. Cook on LOW 3 to 4 hours.
3. Stir in cream cheese, sour cream, and lemon juice, and cook an additional 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
4. Chill, and bring to room temperature before serving.

Tip: If possible, make this dip the day before you intend to serve it to allow time for flavors to develop and blend. Calorie watchers may use light cream cheese and/or light sour cream in this recipe.

Addicted to Love

Ever notice when women get into relationships, we take on our lover's addictions? I'm not referring to a guy's vices, but rather, his hobbies and passions. Show me the contents of your storage closet and I'll show you a history of your boyfriends. Remember the guy who always wore cowboy boots? That's why you have country & western CDs. And the time you fell head over heels for that outdoor type? Look! There's your rock-climbing gear. And here's a magazine called Choo-Choo Monthly. Remember the guy who built model trains? And … is that a studded, leather bra? Remember the - oh, never mind. And look at all these relationship self-help books telling you how you can change! Seems like ultimately you decided not to - so let's take this junk out to the curb.
