I love my slow cooker. Next to freezer cooking, it’s the fastest way to get out of the kitchen. Seriously, is there anything better than putting everything in the crockpot and coming back 8 hours to a full cooked meal? Love that!
In Kathy Moore & Roxanne Wyss’ new cookbook, Triple Slow Cooker Entertaining, they take advantage of a triple slow cooker to make fabulous, three course meals in the slow cooker. These meals are terrific on their own for every day use, but if you’re having a party, using a triple slow cooker allows you to make tasty food and not be stuck in the kitchen all night while your guests mingle.
(If you don’t have a triple slow cooker, you can still prepare these meals in your regular slow cooker, which I did.)
This book starts with an introduction that explains how to use a slow cooker in general and specifically for preparing foods for parties. They then explain how to prepare for a party and choose the foods you’ll make.
To make your life even easier, the authors take the 100+ recipes in the book and lay out 30 different party plans covering holidays from Mother’s Day to Oscar Viewing to Kids’ Party. They’ve done all the work for you! All you have to do is put the food in the slow cooker and have fun with your guests.
We tried several recipes in the book, and each one was a hit. Our all time favorite was Tuscan Beef and Bean Soup (each kid ate their whole bowl of soup, even Cuddle Bug and Peanut Butter and Jelly Girl, which is saying something). We also enjoyed the Steak Fajita Chili. Honestly, though, every recipe was delicious.
You know I love pictures of recipes and would prefer to have a picture of every meal, but this rarely happens, I’m guessing because of the expense. However, this cookbook has pictures of 12 of the 30 party plans, which lets readers view a grand total of 36 dishes. I was happy with that.
Robert Rose, the publisher of Triple Slow Cooker Entertaining, is offering one lucky Mom’s Plans’ reader their own copy of the cookbook.
