There's nothing I love more than putting a bunch of ingredients in a pot for several hours and returning to find dinner hot and ready. Everyone needs a slow cooker in their life, and it would probably be wise to get a cookbook along with it. Carla Kelly's book has more than 150 tasty recipes to fulfill all of your slow cooking desires.
Slow cooking isn't all about soups and stews. Check out these recipes:
