Cooking low carb used to be time consuming,, Feb 15 2004
But this book really simplifies things because you can prepare everything in the morning (or in some cases the night before!) and throw it in the cooker as you walk out the door. Coming home to those awesome smells is satisfying, especially when you've been overdoing the salad and chicken breast dinners...
I just got this book a week ago but have already tried a handful of recipes. The kicked up French Onion soup is spectacular - rivals any restaurant's version - even includes a crouton on top and still low carb. Being able to roast flavorful chickens and turkey breast without heating up the house (or having to tend to a grill) will be great in the summertime - and it makes great leftovers for the next day's lunch.
The helpful introduction tells you all you need to know about slow cooking and each recipe is written with practicality in mind - no scouring the special foods isles at the store - they have really made it easy. After all, isn't that why you want to use a crock pot in the first place??? My slow cooker is now on my countertop instead of hiding in the back of my cabinet somewhere.
