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."
