2017 Best Cookbooks for the Slow Cooker

One of the best inventions for the kitchen – the slow cooker. Toss in some ingredients, let it go all day (or close to it), and arrive back to your kitchen with a beautiful meal all set to go.

Gotta love it.

But – what about when you want to get a bit more creative than just putting in a roast, veggies and a few seasonings? “Creative” doesn’t always mean “complicated” – and such is the case with many slow cooker recipes. You can get the best of both worlds – easy-peasy meals that are also unique and amazingly delicious.
