Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker!

Fall is soon upon us and is the season to dig out that slow cooker or purchase one. Slow cooking is great for anyone, whether you work outside the home or are an at home domestic diva!

I decided to highlight a great book called "Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker" and a couple slow cookers that I like. I have been searching for a new one so wanted to share the things I found.

Not Your Mothers Slow Cooker

So I've narrowed my choices between these two, so if you have experience with either I would love to have your comments!

Make the most of your evening by having dinner ready when you step in the door. The Stay or Go slow cooker has ample room for roast chicken and veggies, savory soup or a delicious pot roast and comes with a clip-tight lid that locks on to contain
flavor and prevent messy spills. The lid rest lets you stir and serve without having anything in the way. Large, full-grip handles make carrying easier, whether you’re moving it from one counter to the next or taking it to a potluck party. Dishwasher-safe, removable stoneware insert and lid. Recipes included.

Imagine having all your meals ready when you come home each day! This 6-quart cooking pot goes from heating/serving to stovetop, oven, refrigerator, freezer or
dishwasher. It holds a whole chicken, ham or roast and offers low, medium and high settings for roasting or slow cooking, plus a keep warm setting for serving. The durable cooking pot has a premium nonstick (non-teflon) interior and stainless steel handles; a glass cover allows easy viewing as sauces simmer and meats sizzle. The handy lift-out rack lets you remove roasts and meat with ease. Cooking pot, cover and rack are all dishwasher-safe. Base is heat-resistant.
