I don’t know about you, but I love using my slow cooker. A way to eat a nice home cooked dinner in the summer that doesn’t heat up your whole house, and wonderful, hearty meals in the winter that fell your home with the aroma of hot, enticing creations that make the neighbors jealous every time you open your door.

When I spotted TASTE OF HOME: SLOW COOKER 278 ALL NEW (2017) FAMILY FAVES, I knew I had to check it out. I’m very happy that I did. And, I know you will want to as well.

From Snacks and Beverages to Slow-Cooked Sweets, here’s just a fraction of what you’ll find in this delicious book. Pork Picadillo Wraps, Turkey-Mushroom Egg Rolls, Chili Beef Dip, Pear Cider, Cheesy Hash Brown Potatoes, Ham & Cheddar Breakfast Casserole, Tropical Fruit Compote, Cinnamon Blueberry French Toast, Shrimp Chowder, Beef Stew Provencal, Chicken Cassoulet Soup, Lentil & Pasta Stew, Short Ribs with Salt-Skin Potatoes, Beef Brisket Tacos, Autumn Apple Chicken, Chicken-Cranberry Hot Dish, Gulf Coast Jambalaya Rice, Moist Italian Turkey Breast, Slow-Cooked Reuben Brats, Supreme Pizza-Style Pasta, Ham with Cherry Sauce, Cheese-Stuffed Sweet Onions, Maple-Almond Butternut Squash, Garlic-Dill Soda Bread, Sweet & Spicy Beans, Truly Tasty Turnip Greens, Strawberry-Banana Pudding Cake, Nutty Apple Streusel Dessert, Pink Grapefruit Cheesecake, Minty Hot Fudge Sundae Cake, and so, so much more! There’s even a bonus chapter of Instant Pot recipes.

Oh my goodness. I love this book! There’s something for everyone. My sister and I are picky, or maybe I should say, plain eaters. Even some of the more in-depth recipes can be simplified for our tastes. The recipes are easy to follow. And, it’s packed full of color photos! If you’ve read my recipe book reviews before, you know that I love photos with the recipes.

If you’re looking for a slow cooker recipe book, I think this may be the one you’ve been looking for.

I was blessed enough to find a hardcover edition on a bargain book table for under $5.00. But you can also find it online in paperback and eBook versions.
