Simple, Comforting Slow-Cooker Recipes
(NAPSA) - With today's busy schedules, few people have time to prepare meals from scratch. Time-starved cooks need recipes that are quick to fix, easy to make, delicious and satisfying.
One solution is a new cookbook that's filled with more than 700 recipes, offering convenience and comfort to any cook with a busy life and hungry people to feed. Each selection is made with just five ingredients (or less) plus a slow cooker.
"Fix-It and Forget-It 5-Ingredient Favorites: Comforting Slow-Cooker Recipes" (Good Books), by Phyllis Pellman Good, is packed with recipes submitted by at-home cooks from around the country, each including the amount of prep time and cooking time needed.
The recipes have been tested and include clear, step-by-step procedures: Italian Country Style Pork Ribs, Creamy Vegetable Soup, Salmon Souffle, Beef Ravioli Casserole, Chicken Broccoli Alfredo, Barbecued Black Beans with Sweet Potatoes, Streusel Cake, Chocolate Souffle and many more-including this delicious dish created by Mary Lynn Miller of Reinholds, Pa.:
Prep Time: 10-15 minutes - Cooking Time: 8-10 hours
Ideal slow-cooker size: 5-qt.
