Now, this isn't a fancy celebrity chef cookbook but I can't imagine that anyone couldn't find a few recipes that suited their tastes in this monster of a book. There are over 500 recipes on almost 400 pages. Lots of photographs too.
Don't let the Favorite Brand Name title fool you - most of the recipes aren't loaded with convenience products. I own quite a few Favorite Brand Name cookbooks but if I could only have one, this would be it. The name is a bit misleading in that I don't think there are any more slow cooker recipes than there are casseroles, skillet dinners, etc. This book would be useful even if you don't own a crockpot.
These are some of the recipes from this book that I've tried so far:
Barbara’s Pork Chop Dinner
Bayou-Style Pot Pie
Chicken and Linguine in Creamy Tomato Sauce
Ham and Egg Enchiladas
Jambalaya Stir-Fry on Cajun Rice
Milwaukee Pork Stew
Sausage and Mushroom Pasta
Sweet Jalapeño Mustard Turkey Thighs
This is how it works - just leave a comment on the giveaway post pledging that you'll use the cookbook for your own pleasure (cooking, reading, staring at it on your bookshelf) and you won't turn around and sell it on E-bay, at a yard sale, etc. No, you don't have to write that out - if you comment, I'll assume your motives are pure. I just need an e-mail address (if your profile links to an e-mail, you don't need to type it out, I'll find it). Entry is open until the last day of the month. First chance I get after that, I'll put all the names in a hat and pick two names. The winner will have a week to give me their address after I contact them. If I don't hear from that person, the book goes to the second name I picked. I'll pay the shipping, of course.
As I said, this is a MONSTER of a book so I'll have to limit this to US mailing addresses only again.
