Let’s talk about food, shall we? Specifically, let’s talk about dinner.
Raise your hand if this has ever happened to you.
You have spent all day working, or running errands, or watching kids, or doing all three. Suddenly, it’s 4:30 and you realize you have to fix dinner. You sigh heavily and wonder what the heck you are going to be able to make quickly. With desperate hope, you search the freezer for one last frozen pizza. Unable to find one, you reluctantly pull out the chicken nuggets and feel guilty as you feed your family chicken nugget burgers, again.
You can change this pattern of desperation and and guilt if you do one simple thing: throw something into the crockpot in the morning.
But even that can take a long time because you have to search for recipes, hoping to find one that is good. Enter the Real Food Slow Cooker Suppers cookbook. “Aaaah!” (That was choirs of heavenly angels).
My friend Samantha Skaggs who blogs at Five Heart Home has made this GORGEOUS cookbook with enough slow cooker dinners to last you over a year and a half if you make one a week!
Tell me these dishes do not look delicious to you:
The cookbook features:
♥ 80 new DINNER recipes made in the slow cooker, prepped when it’s convenient for you and cooked while you go on with your day
♥ recipes utilizing real, fresh ingredients instead of processed or packaged ingredients
♥ a variety of recipes, from classics to comfort foods to soups & stews to sandwiches & tacos to holiday main courses, and
♥ a full-color photo with every recipe!
I got one of these cookbooks as soon as it was released, and it is amazing! Here are some recipes I can’t wait to try:
Indian Butter Chicken
Bacon Peach Pork Loin
Chicken Cordon Bleu Soup
Carrot Thyme Bisque
Asian Beef Sandwiches
I have about twenty more on my list of “must try immediately” recipes.
This book is the perfect gift for Christmas, or Mother’s Day, or just any day. So go ahead and order it for yourself! Real Food Slow Cooker Suppers: Easy, Family-Friendly Recipes from Scratch.
P.S. Samantha was on QVC with this book, and it sold 5000 copies that day! So yeah. It’s awesome.
