New Cookbooks!

Over the past few months I have been adding slowly to my cookbook collection. I recently purchased Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbook after borrowing it from our church library and falling in love with it. I used to always use the "Fix It And Forget It" books quite a bit when I was seeking a great slow cooker recipe but this is now my "go-to" book for all things crock pot. This book is great because it uses a lot of really nutritious ingredients and there are not a lot of processed foods used. I also bought the King Arthur Whole Grain Baking Cookbook. This one is awesome if you are trying to incorporate more whole grains into your diet. There are plenty of recipes for things you would normally make like pancakes, oatmeal, breads and pizza crust. The only difference is these recipes use whole grains and they taste great! You can check all the new additions to my collection over on the right sidebar ... just scroll down a bit to see them all.

The new Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Recipes for Two is also good for crocking in the 1 1/2-3 1/2 quart crockpots. I ended up buying it,and a 4-quart crockpot on sale at Target, after looking at a library copy, too. :)

Hey Michele! Looks like I will have to check out Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker from the church library now. I thought it looked like a good one. I had a chance to peek at it one day at Christina's house and I remember thinking that I needed to get that book! Thanks for reminding me!

I have the King Arthur cookbook and let me tell you the pancake mix that is in the front of the cookbook is fantastic. My kids gobbled them down. I (and my friends) loved one of the scone recipes. I made it with dried cherries, chocolate, and candied orange peel (just a bit). They were delicious and good fresh from the oven and the next day. The recipe makes a bunch, but they never stay around too long.
