More About the Author

I'm the author of the IACP-award-nominated WHOLE GRAINS for a New Generation, and two other books in the series: CANNING for a New Generation and the new VEGETARIAN for a New Generation (which Amazon for some reason won't let me list a link to on my bibliography page.

For more about who I am, what I like to cook and eat and do, see my (extremely informal) little blog, Pie and Beer: pieandbeer.wordpress.com. And no, I have no idea why I named it Pie and Beer all those years ago, except for the fact that I love those two things, especially together.

It's obvious the recipes were not tested before publication. Against my personal experience, I followed a recipe for bean stew which did not mention bean soaking was needed and seemed to have not enough time for cooking. I did soak the beans, but otherwise followed the recipe's cooking time. The beans were still quite hard after the alloted time. I then cooked them for an additional 2 hours and they were still hard. After this experience, the next recipe (ribs) I wanted to try, I reviewed the specified cooking time and knew it was off, so looked up rib cooking times in another slow-cooker cookbook to adjust. Ended up the time in this recipe book needed to be doubled! If this were the first and only slow-cooker cookbook someone bought, they would be lost! Shame on the author for just making up recipes that sounded good in her head and not testing them!

This is one of the best slow cooker recipe books I've used. She makes it easy to make ethnic type receipes, which I love.

This is the worst cookbook I've ever owned. I certainly agree that the recipes were not tested. I tried three recipes; the first two were missing something and the cook times were certainly off. Yesterday, I tried the recipe shown on the cover. First, once again the time was off--I did follow the rest of the directions including the 3 cups of walnuts (seemed excessive). The result--absolutely nasty. This book will never be used again--in fact, I refuse to donate it to the library book drive. The publisher should pull it and trash all remaining copies.

I checked out a lot of books from the library trying to find something to teach me how to use my husbands' slow cooker (I had no experience.) I wanted something other than "dump in a bunch of cans of stuff and get a soup out." This book provides that and seems to be okay... but it's not great. I much prefer Lynn Alley's 'The Gourmet Slow Cooker' which is not gourmet in terms of work or difficulty but man, the taste of her dishes are amazing. That one get's 5 stars and seems like a much better way to go than this which, again, is okay but nothing special.
