Canadian Living Magazine just had a special issue of slow cooker recipes. Canadian Living is a regular monthly publication with recipes, and articles on cooking, decorating and the domestic arts. I usually ignore the regular issues, although I guess it would be ok for a middle-aged metrosexual to browse. Canadian Living also publishes several cookbook specials every year. The cover on this one advertised that it had 135 slow cooker recipes, and tips and tricks, and when I flipped through it, there were several interesting recipes.
It isn’t a complete cookbook, although it does cover many of the basics. I guess it is aimed at people who already own a few cookbooks and are looking for some new ideas. I think they have probably done a Slow Cooker special a few times before. Many of the recipes sound interesting – perhaps a little too creative. But they manage to cover a number of ways to cook several different kinds of meats, alone or in soups and stews, and all the major food groups. It didn’t have that many stews and chilis, but there were a few. It is a good complement to my other slow cooker cookbooks, and that’s all I can expect for five bucks.
