More About the Author

Beth Hensperger, a New Jersey-born who now considers herself a California native, has been educating, writing, and demo-lecturing about the art of baking bread and cooking for thirty years. In the last few years, she has shifted focus from baking bread to countertop appliance-driven cookbooks that embrace the use of seasonal ingredients, merge convenience with cooking from scratch, and modernizing the home kitchen: the bread machine, the rice cooker, the microwave oven, and now a four-volume compilation specifically for use with the electric slow cooker, stressing care in preparation and personal creativity.

Hensperger's writing career began when she was chosen as the guest cooking instructor for the March 1985 issue of Bon Appétit. Now she is the author of over twenty cookbooks, including the best-selling Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbook series, which includes Not Your Mother's Recipes for Entertaining, Not Your Mother's Family Favorites, Not Your Mother's Weeknight Suppers, and NYMSC Recipes for Two along with the blockbuster first volume, Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbook. Also from The Harvard Common Press are The Bread Lover's Bread Machine Cookbook, The Ultimate Rice Cooker Cookbook, and The Best Quick Breads. She is also the author of The Bread Bible, winner of the 2000 James Beard Book Award in Baking, and nominated twice for an IACP Cookbook Award.

Hensperger wrote a food column, "Baking with the Seasons," for the San Jose Mercury News (which was nominated for a James Beard Award in newspaper journalism) for over 12 years until the newspaper downsized.

She is a contributor to dozens of national and online cooking & lifestyle magazines, such as Food and Wine, Rachel Ray Magazine, Prevention, Veggie Life, Working Woman, Family Circle, and Cooking.com, as well as being a sought after radio interviewee speaking on cooking, baking, and entertaining. She lives in the San Francisco Bay area.

I rented this cookbook at the library hoping to find a few recipes to add to my recipe collection. There were so many great recipes that I had to buy the cookbook!

I don't usually review but this book is so much better than I expected, it deserves one. Very comprehensive and very well written, it's like "Joy of Cooking" for slow cookers. It will teach you to use your cooker.

This cookbook has a large variety of interesting recipes, including an amazing array of chili and even dessert recipes. They are clear and easy to read. It includes recipes for several size of slow-cookers, and recipes usually require some type of stove-top preparation before placing ingredients into the cooker. I gave this as a wedding gift and recommend it for anyone with a slow-cooker.

A friend of mine at church let me borrow 5 of his crockpot cookbooks after we discussed crockkpots when washing dishes after a ladies seminar. This cookbook surpassed all the other ones in content and simplicity. I was getting ready to photocopy some 20 recipes I liked when I thought why not just buy the book. So I went to Amazon where I found the out of print book for a good price. The ingredients were not overly exotic so it was easy to find most around the kitchen. And the cookbook opened my eyes to baking cakes and breads in a slow cooker and to using a rack in a cooker. I wish the book has included more about racks and where to find them for different brands of cookers.

There are some good dishes in this book but some of them are a bit simple and would disappoint anyone who, like me, already has a lot of experience at home cooking. Leaving a pork roast in the cooker for 8 hours and then adding a can of already cooked garbanzo beans to it and calling it Navajo Stew is not my idea of cooking. And then some of them are time intensive where you need to have a timer set to add things and raise or lower the temperature for proper cooking...if you are planning to set it up and go to work than you cant use some of the recipes. Others call for equipment that you probably don't have like a rack that goes in the cooker to "grill" or a special pan that holds items like batter for pudding or sponge cakes. No cooker I have ever seen in the store come with these things and unless you want to try to find one online that might fit the cooker you have, you wont be making that recipe either. Also different size crocks are called for for different dishes so unless you have 3 or 4 crocks be prepared to size the recipe so that your cooker will work efficiently. All in all I have used very few of the dishes in this book as written - i have been using it more for ideas and then assembling my own dishes based on them.
