cool crock pot cookbooks
Food for Thought:
When the weather turns cold, many smart cooks turn to the comfort and convenience of their crock pot for hearty, healthy, one-dish meals. According to a study by Betty Crocker Kitchens, 80 percent of American households owned a slow cooker in 2002.
If you are considering adding a crock pot to your cooking arsenal, experts recommend that you buy an oval-shaped pot because it can hold meats of different size and shape. The crock pot should also have at least three settings: keep warm, warm and hot. Look for a 5- or 6-quart slow cooker to accommodate family-sized meals, and choose one with a removable insert, which can expedite the cleaning process.
Here are some new cookbooks designed especially for crock pot meals:
