The Slow Cooker is now middle aged! Invented in 1950, the Slow Cooker has been popular in the early 1970s. The miracle appliance was the perfect compliment to the busy modern life style, but considered a backwater to the world of fine food. That all changes now!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Selection And Variety Regular family dinner gatherings have been proven to achieve positive results in both the health and the general lives of children. But creating a healthy, tasty meal every night is difficult. For this, The Family Table Slow Cooker was born. Comprised of recipes from around the world, the food in this collection is designed to be easy-to-make, simple, and delicious. The brief introduction describes the recipes and philosophy behind this book. It also gives recommendations regarding ingredients and use of your slow cooker. It even provides a brief introduction to the inventor of the slow cooker, Irving Naxon. To those of us who live by our slow cookers, this is the man to whom we owe so much. The recipe categories are divided into: Breakfast Treats Appetizers And Finger Foods Soups, Stews, And Chilis Side Dishes: Pasta, Potatoes, And Rice Side Dishes: Vegetables Main Dishes With Meat Fish And Seafood cat dishes Delicious Desserts Each of the recipes includes a brief introduction and serving sizes. Some also include a tip for variations or substitutions. Most of the recipes do include a picture of the finished item, a few are not a full page pic but all are beautifully photographed. Some of the recipes may surprise, for instance, I had no idea that one could make kabobs in a slow cooker. Since these are supposed to be quick and easy recipes I would’ve been happier if the recipes also included the time required. The recipes may be delicious but I would like to know in advance the time required as far as prep is concerned. Excellent Selection And Variety There are very many recipes that I think would become family favorites in my household. Several of the recipes are classics, but with a slightly different take. It is due to excellent recipe collections like this that makes one want to use more than one slow cooker at the same time. Because there are so many recipes for excellent main dishes, side dishes, desserts etc. more than one will be helpful to make full use of both the book and your device. I was however very disappointed about the lack of an index in the book. There’s nothing worse than finding the perfect recipe only to forget what page it’s on. A good index saves you from searching for it forever. See the full review and the recipe for Herbed Pork Roast at The RecipesNow! Reviews And Recipes Magazine. This review is written in response to a complimentary copy of the book provided by the publisher in hopes of an honest review.
