This is the book to turn to, whatever your slow-cooker question or dilemma. For example—   Do I really have to brown the meat before putting it into the slow cooker, even if the recipe tells me to do that?   Can I cook a dish in half the time on High if the recipe tells me to cook it on Low?   How can I convert a stove-top or oven recipe so it can be cooked in a slow cooker?   How do I keep chicken breasts from overcooking in a slow cooker?   I don't have a baking insert. How do I "bake" a cake without one in my slow cooker?   How can I get meat loaf or lasagna out of the slow cooker without breaking it and ruining its appearance?           The collection includes real-life tested tips, plus stories of slowcooker successes and disasters, unusual discoveries, and slow cookers' role in special occasions. A handy resource for new and experienced cooks, from those who love their slow cookers and have learned by doing.
