Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Food writer and proud owner of five slow cookers, Jager blows the dust off of Grandma's favorite cooking device and tells working women how they can make "love-me-tender" meals that will bring husbands and boyfriends to their knees-all without spending more than 33 minutes (and, in some cases, less than seven) in the kitchen. Jager persuasively outlines the advantages of "doing it slowly" (saving on electricity, preparing meals the night before, etc.) and lays out her recipes in an accessible, course-by-course manner. The dishes range from the inventive (Prune Pockets Stuffed with Wild Rice and Smoked Turkey; Lamb in Ginger-Pear wine Sauce with Lima Beans) to the basic (Easy Corned Beef Brisket; Beef and Vegetable Stew), but all are guaranteed to leave the chef with plenty of time for other mouth-watering activities. Though geared more toward women, with its sassy girl talk sidebars, this book would also be a good companion for men looking for tasty recipes that are free of "fancy foreign f words like fricassee and flambe."

This is just a perfect cook book, and is on top of that, it's so much fun to read Rebecca's stories and background info.

I've had this book for three months and have rediscovered how perfect the slow cooker is for my family, thanks to Rebecca. I've cooked more than 25 dishes now and they have all been a success with my family and friends. People now think I'm some kind of gourmet chef thanks to this book, and the recipes are all simple, some with only 3 ingredients. Some of my best successes have been Warm Bean Salsa, Carmelized Red Onion Dip, Sticky Wings, Chicken Bites In Thai Peanut Sauce, Tropical Pepper Pot, Thai Beef Curry, Hot & Sour Pork, Chicken Tarragon and Pasta Primavera, to name just a few. This is just a perfect cook book, and is on top of that, it's so much fun to read Rebecca's stories and background info.
I am a big fan of How To Make Love and Dinner!

A friend gave me How To Make Love And Dinner At The Same Time for my birthday last month (she knew what a crazy life I lead and thought this book might help). Nice to have a giggle as you're making dinner. We've loved every recipe we've tried --- my family tends to be picky eaters, so you have no idea how happy this makes me! Can't wait for Rebecca's next book!

I saw Rebecca a couple of months ago on our local AM Buffalo TV show promoting her book with a tasty looking chicken dish and some fun banter with the host. Picked up her book and I immediately fell in love! OK, not with her, but definitely with her writing. It has so many great but easy recipes, but even better it's a fun, light read with lots of anecdotes and observations about life, disguised as what she calls Crock Talks. Kind of reminds me of some of my Mom's old Erma Bombeck books.
This book would be a great gift for the woman (or man for that matter) in your life. I plan on giving several as Valentines this year.

I have had this cookbook now for several months and I have tried several recipes. They have all worked beautifully and gotten rave reviews. The best part however, is the fun reading and the asides that are spinkled throughout the book. I'm here ordering three more for friends for Christmas. Can't think of a better gift!

I love to read cookbooks and this one is especially great because of all the great sassy sidebars -- it's like having your best girlfriend in the kitchen talking to you. The recipes are great too! I've tried several of them and they have all been super yummy. This would be a great cookbook to give as a gift.
