Product Description

Product Description

ATTENTION:  DUE TO THE OVERWHELMING AMOUNT OF NEGATIVE REVIEWS I RECEIVED ABOUT THE 30 NON-SLOW COOKER RECIPES INCLUDED IN THIS BOOKS, I WOULD LIKE TO CLEARLY STATE THAT THE RECIPES FOR QUICK SALADS, BREADS AND DESSERTS WERE INCLUDED IN ORDER TO HELP YOU QUICKLY ROUND OUT YOUR SLOW COOKER MEALS.

 
PLEASE NOTE:  The goal of these recipes, especially the bonus chapters for QUICK salads, breads, and desserts is to prepare something delicious yet fast.  To accomplish this, reliance on some prepared foods is required.  If you prefer not to use prepared food items, then you can replace with fresh ingredients or consider purchasing a cookbook that is more to your culinary liking.  However, if you want to be in and out of the kitchen fast, then you will appreciate these recipes that are quick without sacrificing on taste.


As calendars fill up, it gets harder and harder to find the time to enjoy family meals together. The recipes in this cookbook can help you ease that dinnertime crunch. All it takes is a slow cooker and this versatile collection of recipes, and you're on the way to preparing delicious meals that simmer for hours and are ready to serve in minutes at the end of the day. Each one of these 80 exceptional ideas has personally been tested to guarantee that it works perfectly and is practical for your family.



You will find main dishes for every taste - from beef, pork, and lamb entrées to poultry, fish, and meatless recipes. Plus there are slow-simmering side dishes and appetizers to tote to potlucks or serve at parties. And to make meal planning easy, you can take advantage of the three bonus chapters that showcase quick salads, breads, and desserts to round out slow-cooker meals. If you have questions about slow cooking, check the slow cooker basics chapter for helpful information.



With the creative ideas in Satisfying Slow Cooker Meals and More, you will always have the help and inspiration you need to fit satisfying home-cooked meals into your busy family's routine.

About the Author

My name is Maria Holmes and I love to cook and eat fine tasting food that's good for you. There are few things as satisfying as sitting down to a homemade meal with those you love. I am by no means a professional chef, but I would like to think that I'm a good home cook. I especially love to create delicious meals that are easy to prepare and made with a minimum of fuss. I believe that if it takes too long to prepare, then it better be worth it! My interest in cooking came to me while I was working as a waitress in a small local café. I loved everything about it ... the amazing smells of simmering soup and freshly baked bread, the spicy aroma of a healthy bowl of gumbo, and the melt in your mouth goodness of an apple pie that just came out of the oven. The art of baking and cooking captivated my soul. My Incurable "Disease" But my newly found love for cooking came at a cost. I have developed a severe (but non-life-threatening) disease called "Low-Resistance-to-Yummy-Recipes-Syndrome" (a.k.a Cookbookitis). One of the symptoms of this disease is the complete inability to resist collecting cookbooks, magazines with recipes, even those little brand name mini-cookbooks positioned oh-so-temptingly next to grocery store checkout lanes. For years I tried to get around this by doing most of my major grocery shopping at Costco. But guess what? Costco started selling cookbooks and now my collection continues to grow. I'm slightly embarrassed to say that I have at least 500, maybe more, cookbooks (now I did say it's a disease!). I am going to try to inventory my collection of cookbooks soon. I'll let you know how many I have when I finally catalogue and classify all of them. With soooooo many cookbooks, I am always trying to find the best foods to feed my family. I am passionate about only serving my family meals that will strengthen, grow, and energize them. I have been reading my many cookbooks and started thinking about creating my own cookbooks and sharing my many creations with other avid home cooks. There is always so much to learn! You will notice that I try to keep my cooking style clean and simple. I know that the more simple I keep it, the more likely I'm going to succeed in consistently preparing beautiful and tasty meals. It's been a journey of learning and experimenting in the kitchen, but one that I've greatly enjoyed. I hope that my cookbooks will help you in your journey as well! Print this

Comprehensive and delicious. That’s the best way I can describe Satisfying Slow Cooker Meals and More by Maria Holmes. We’d been thinking about a slow cooker, but didn’t actually buy one until we read this book. The author also gives you pointers on what to buy. She takes you through all the steps and then rolls out amazing and easy recipes. A slow cooker will change how you eat and this book is the guide that will take you there. Highly recommended 5-stars.

HASH(0xa70f3408) out of 5 stars Not for the unprocessed family. Jan. 5 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I would not reccommend this book for families that try to stay away from processed ingredients, Most of the recipes call for canned sauces. This cookbook is more like a pantry raid cookbook.

HASH(0xa70f3618) out of 5 stars Great Book for Slow Cooker Newbies or Veterans Dec 10 2013
By chh1138 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I purchased this book because I was looking to increase the usage of my slow cooker, and I'm sure glad I did. The slow cooker is something I've always just kind of used for stews, but Maria Holmes' book contains recipes and ideas I'd never thought of.

Who knew you could make desserts in a slow cooker? I certainly didn't, but 'Satisfying Slow Cooker Meals' has a number of them.

Another thing that I love is that it contains vegetarian meals. I eat meat, but I'm looking to cut back. My fiance doesn't eat meat, so it can be hard to come up with meals we can have together. Making everything up in the slow cooker is a great solution for us.

Particular standouts for me are the Cuban Style Black Beans and Rice and Maple Ginger Sweet Potatoes. Yum!

If you're looking to get back into slow cooking (like me) or just looking for some great new recipes, check out this book.

I'm having a Christmas party this weekend, and I'm going to try out the Mexican Style Meatballs and Sausages.

HASH(0xa70f390c) out of 5 stars The recipes are tasty and interesting Dec 9 2013
By Likedit - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a good slow cooker book. There's heaps of recipes - 80 - that's plenty for me to getting on with. The directions are solid and easy to follow. The cooking times are accurate. There are some nice tips - I like the one on reducing salt in bean products. Most of all though, the recipes are tasty and interesting; two favorites so far being the 'ginger pork and dried plums' and 'cajun seasoned vegetable gumbo'.

HASH(0xa70f3e04) out of 5 stars You will fall in love with your slowcooker with these tantalizing recipes! Dec 9 2013

Maria Holmes has done it again. Satisfying Slow Cooker Meals and More lives up to its title with 80 great recipes. There are recipes in this book that will satisfy everyone in your family and your friends. I have tried several of the recipes and one of my favorites is the Cranberry-Chipotle Beef. The sweetness of the cranberry and the heat of the chipotle will tease your sensations. The Mexican Style Meatballs and Mini Sausages were at hit at my office Christmas pot luck dinner this year. The author also provides you with basic slow cooker information and tips that will ensure that your slowcooker experience is successful and leaves everyone feeling full and wanting more. I am recommending this book to everyone and it is on my Christmas gift giving list for several of my friends this year as well.
