Read full description of the books Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Recipes for Entertaining:This is a great, really extensive slow cooker book that does exactly what it sets out to do - feature great recipes for entertaining. The authors are very knowledgeable, and there is explanatory text and notes for each type of food, as well as for most recipes. There is a chapter of non-slow cooker sides, too.
There are some really creative recipes in here - turkey and oranges. . .works well, who knew? Many of the recipes are slow cooker adaptations of other recipes. Generally that would make me think the authors weren't creative, but they're adaptations from Mark Bittman, Julia Child and several other notable names - so the recipes are good standards. I also liked that they ran the full high-low range, including everything from Frito Pie to Venison with dried cherries.
If you're an avid slow cooker, you probably have some of these already (like many of the dip recipes) - and some of the apps might be easier made in the oven. And most of these recipes aren't for every day - they generally have several steps and are more elaborate. But for special occasions, they'd be perfect.
The slow cooker is great for entertaining since you can generally do all the prep beforehand, so you'll have more time with your guests. This book includes several dishes that I hadn't thought possible in the slow cooker. They even make truffles with the slow cooker! And have a low fat truffle recipe (using prune butter) that I can't wait to try. I'd have liked more photos, but overall this is a great book that is well worth the price and accomplishes exactly what it sets out to. If you're a fan of crockpot cooking, you've got to check this out.

Her training included a ten-year apprenticeship as a restaurant and hotel pastry chef as well as having her own custom wedding cake business and attending classes given by some of the top bakers in America. Though restaurant trained, she considers herself more of a dedicated home baker than a chef.

The Bread Bible (Chronicle Books) is the recipient of The James Beard Foundation Award for Baking in 2000. Beth's Basic Bread Book (Chronicle Books), a sequential text for the beginning home baker, published in the Fall of 1996, was chosen as one of the best baking books of the year by People Magazine. She has been nominated twice for the IACP Julia Child Cookbook Awards. Her books are all represented at the prestigious Culinary Collection of the Schlesinger Library at Radcliffe College in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
