Item Description...
The slow cooker has been a true boon for the busy chef, but until now most slow-cooker recipes have been developed with an eye toward "forgetting" about the cooking rather than creating memorable dishes. That's about to change. With Secrets of Slow Cooking, author Liana Krissoff presents classics, both American and international, as well as new tastes, all featuring the freshest ingredients prepared in a satisfying and, as she puts it, "soulful" manner.

Beginning with easy tips for slow-cooker success, Krissoff then offers more than 60 recipes for extraordinary slow-cooked food. From appetizers to vegetables to main dishes to desserts, here are foods that will delight family and friends-Soy-Glazed Beef Short Ribs, Wild Rice with Cherries and Orange, Easiest Corn Chowder, Cassoulet with Homemade Sausage, Apricot and Chocolate Bread Pudding, and Chewy-Fudgy Brownies, to name but a few.

Also included are recipes that take full advantage of the slow cooker's capacity for even, low-heat temperature. For example, Tuna Poached in Extra-Virgin Olive Oil showcases an excellent method for cooking firm-fleshed fish, while Sake Punch demonstrates how a slow cooker becomes the perfect punch bowl for serving hot drinks.

Secrets of Slow Cooking will take your slow cooker from a convenient appliance to a treasured kitchen necessity.

Recipes were obviously not tested  May 27, 2008
It's obvious the recipes were not tested before publication. Against my personal experience, I followed a recipe for bean stew which did not mention bean soaking was needed and seemed to have not enough time for cooking. I did soak the beans, but otherwise followed the recipe's cooking time. The beans were still quite hard after the alloted time. I then cooked them for an additional 2 hours and they were still hard. After this experience, the next recipe (ribs) I wanted to try, I reviewed the specified cooking time and knew it was off, so looked up rib cooking times in another slow-cooker cookbook to adjust. Ended up the time in this recipe book needed to be doubled! If this were the first and only slow-cooker cookbook someone bought, they would be lost! Shame on the author for just making up recipes that sounded good in her head and not testing them!
 
Slow Cookin'   May 2, 2008
I checked out a lot of books from the library trying to find something to teach me how to use my husbands' slow cooker (I had no experience.) I wanted something other than "dump in a bunch of cans of stuff and get a soup out." This book provides that and seems to be okay... but it's not great. I much prefer Lynn Alley's 'The Gourmet Slow Cooker' which is not gourmet in terms of work or difficulty but man, the taste of her dishes are amazing. That one get's 5 stars and seems like a much better way to go than this which, again, is okay but nothing special.
