Whoever said nothing good in life comes easy must have never owned a slow cooker.

Slow cooking offers the best of both worlds -- hearty, healthy meals with minimal effort. The slow cooker, or "Crock Pot" as it is commonly referred to, is well known for its delectable pot roasts and savory stews, but what is less known is that it is capable of so much more. Enter bestselling author John Chatham's latest creation, The Slow Cooker Cookbook, which features 87 recipes that will put your slow cooker to use from breakfast to dessert.

The Slow Cooker Cookbook helps eliminate that dreadful feeling of coming home from work tired and wondering what's for dinner. If you own a slow cooker you already know that it's the easiest appliance to operate in the kitchen. But it takes too long you say. Well, that's the point. A slow cooker allows you to throw some ingredients in the pot, safely walk away and get on with your life while it does the work.

This cookbook offers recipes for all the traditional comfort food favorites like pot roast, beef stew, pulled pork, BBQ baby back ribs, old fashioned meatloaf, butternut squash soup and even mac 'n cheese.

Imagine your home filled with the spicy aromas of Tandoori Chicken, Chicken Ranchero Enchiladas or Braised Asian Beef. Dozens of international recipes feature meals you never dreamed of actually making yourself. And with the slow cooker doing all the work you will feel as though you are dining out.

Sounds appealing, but you don't eat meat? The Slow Cooker Cookbook dedicates an entire chapter of recipes to fish and seafood, and is filled with numerous hearty vegetable dishes like White Bean and Rosemary Soup, Eggplant Parmesan and Vegetarian Cassoulet.

And if slaving over the stove is your passion then most likely you're not the baking type. Let the slow cooker make dessert. From fruit crumbles and cobblers to hot fudge cake there's virtually no recipe that this cookbook doesn't offer.

About John Chatham

See more books from this Author
The Mediterranean Diet is bestselling author John Chatham’s favorite book to have “worked” on. It required immersing himself in research by traveling across the coast of Italy to the islands of Greece, all the while dining on the Mediterranean’s delicious cuisine. As his latest creation reveals, the secret to the region’s health and vitality is sought by embracing the Mediterranean diet. After earning a MFA degree in English, Chatham began his career as a writer competing in short story competitions and submitting material to various literary publications. During a stint in Asia, he began writing for economic publications and travel guides. Ultimately, his time living abroad inspired him to combine his two passions: writing and food. The best selling author of The Paleo Diet Solution and The Paleo Diet Solution Cookbook, Chatham is a firm believer that a healthy diet doesn’t mean compromising your appetite. His goal is to offer nutritious meals — from traditional American recipes to international flavors — that never leave you hungry. When he’s not roaming the globe satisfying his palate with international cuisine Chatham resides in the Bay Area. In his free time (and to stay fit) he enjoys skiing, kickboxing, and running with his dog Whiskey.
