Gourmet Slow Cooker: Vol. II

Regional Comfort-Food Classics

Lynn Alley



Lynn Alley has done it again! Here is a second volume of nutritious, supremely tasty meals which come to the rescue of modern families everywhere. In this volume she focuses on delicious regional favorites throughout the United States, and offers up some of the most mouthwatering renditions ever to be conceived for slow cooking. Her offerings range from simple soups to succulent feasts and will make family mealtime a joyous event even when time is short and of the essence.

I also found her updated information about choosing a slow cooker to be invaluable – I learned what I needed to be much more successful in all my slow cooking efforts, and came to the conclusion that equipment matters, but knowing your equipment matters more. She tells you both which brands she has found to be reliable and also what to watch for in the slow cooker you now own.

I consider this another must-have for my own cookbook shelf – and believe you will agree once you try it.  Buono appetito!

A small sample of her recipes includes:

  • Santa Fe Sweet Potato Soup
  • San Francisco Cioppino
  • Korean-Style Ribs
  • Simple Poached Salmon
  • Bacalhau
  • Sun-Dried Tomato Risotto
  • Lima Beans and Ham Hocks
  • Braised Onions with Raisins and Almonds
  • Apricot Gingerbread Upside-Down Cake
  • Georgia Peach Cobbler
