With the introduction of a smaller model that cooks in quantities for one or two people, the slow cooker's popularity has grown even more. This downsized appliance for the single person or the childless couple allows the cook to prepare a meal in the morning, head off to a job, and still have a hot meal virtually ready when the workday has ended. Hensperger demonstrates this diminutive cooker's versatility with a collection of recipes that fit in with today's changing tastes in food. Chilis and soups show off the slow cooker's obvious virtues. In addition to beef- and pork-based stews and braises, plenty of turkey and chicken recipes appeal to devotees of lower-fat cooking. Polenta and risotto enhance the usual pasta dishes. Hensperger further offers some recipes for accompaniments designed for stovetop or oven preparation such as cornbread, pilafs, and dumplings.

She also gives helpful instructions for buying a slow cooker, and each recipe tells you which size crock pot to use. I especially love how she includes recipes for dishes that you don't normally see in a crock pot recipe book, like polenta and steel-cut oatmeal.
Overall, this is a wonderful cookbook for a single person or couple who enjoys healthy tasty dishes but wants the convenience of a slow cooker. It makes a great wedding gift - I recently gave a young couple a crock pot for a wedding shower along with this book and they absolutely love it.
This is the only cookbook I have found for up to 3 1/2 qt slow cookers. We have tried several recipes so far, all with great results. For years our slow cooker has been kept in the cabinet for lack of recipes. Today my wife is cooking pinto beans. She started them this morning then off we went for coffee and a light lunch and this evening we will enjoy beans and cornbread- top that on a cold day.
I have read several lower ratings for this cookbook based mainly on too much preparation required for too many of the recipes. I guess many of those folks either rely on way too much fast food for dinner or just don't want to be bothered. Pity, food prepared from scratch using great recipes beats all.
We have enjoyed several recipes from this book, including the Lasagna (with a few modifications...made the Italian Meat Sauce the night before and added two layers of fresh ricotta cheese/egg mixture), which is now one of my husband's favorites.
Now, I'm using the slow cooker almost continuously. For you working people, here's a huge helpful hint: Do as much prep work as possible the night before and put it away in the refrigerator. Then, in the morning, it only takes about 15-20 minutes max to put all the prepared ingredients in the slow cooker. Turn it on and come home to a freshly prepared meal that is just the right size for a couple plus a little bit of leftovers for the next day's lunch.
If you are planning to give a slow cooker to newlyweds or daughter/son in college, definitely add this cookbook along with it. The slow cooker will get a lot more use and not wind up in the closet or sold in a garage sale.
