Overview

Wholesome, warm and homespun recipes with all the benefits of the slow cooker.

In her newest slow cooker cookbook, Judith Finlayson combines the convenience and benefits of this handy appliance with her terrific recipes for home-cooked family favorites.

Many of these healthy and robust dishes have retro appeal, while others meet the challenges of contemporary tastes and preferences. All are delicious and innovative, and once the slow cooker is turned on, the only chore left is to serve the piping-hot dish. With these recipes and a slow cooker, any home chef can be away from the kitchen all day and return to a hot, delicious ready-to-serve meal for the whole family.

Slow Cooker Comfort Food includes such sure-fire hits as:

  • Soothing appetizers like cheddar-onion melt
  • Comforting soups like classic cream of mushroom
  • Hearty stews, such as wine-soaked beef bourguignon
  • The sumptuous Mom's chicken 'n' dumplings
  • Cumin-spiced potatoes or East-meets-West pot roast to ward off a winter's chill
  • Decadent and delicious desserts like chocolate bread-and butter pudding or caramelized apple upside-down spice cake.

Also included are creative make-ahead ideas with tips and techniques that maximize the potential of the slow cooker and assure outstanding results every time.

Editorial Reviews

Guelph Mercury - Cindy Matthews
This book is packed with recipes for everything from breakfast dishes and snacks to soups, meat dishes, bean-based entrees and desserts... Superbly "comforting" indeed.
Montreal Gazette Favourite Cookbooks of 2009
From Judith Finlayson, a Toronto writer with five other slow-cooker books to her credit [comes] this beauty.
Oshkosh Post Crescent - Julie Gilkay
According to Finlayson, every meal stands up in the slow cooker.... Color-coded labels make selecting a recipe easier. Recipes can be designated vegetarian friendly, vegan friendly, can be halved, and/or entertainment worthy. Colored photos, make-ahead suggestions and other tips are scattered throughout.
Tampa Tribune - Barbara Quinn
These recipes could keep a busy family going for quite a while. Although recipes do not include food and nutrition information the author cleverly denotes recipes if they are "vegetarian," "vegan friendly," "entertaining worthy" or can be halved.
