My slow cooker is going to be working overtime this holiday season. My husband and I are hosting a holiday party at home in the next two weeks, then another party at my in-laws’ house after that, followed by another holiday party we were invited to. In all of those occasions, I will sure to be using my slow cooker to make some of our favorite holiday recipes!
I recently received two new cookbooks from Good Books– the publisher who created the phenomenally successful Fix-It and Forget It cookbooks: Fix-It and Forget-It Christmas Cookbook: 600 Slow Cooker Holiday Recipes and the first-ever kids’ slow cooker cookbook, Fix-It and Forget-It Kids’ Cookbook: 50 Favorite Recipes to Make in a Slow Cooker, both by Phyllis Pellman Good.
With Fix-It and Forget-It Christmas Cookbook: 600 Slow Cooker Holiday Recipes, you can enjoy a great, stress-free holiday! Ms. Pellman did a great job providing her readers with simple, manageable slow-cooker Christmas recipes in this book. This book will fill your head with menu ideas, give you gentle guidance with each recipe, and deliver dishes that your friends and family will absolutely love! Feast on some of Ms. Pellman’s holiday recipes, such as Holiday Spinach and Artichoke Dip, Cornish Hens with Potatoes, Sausage Tortellini Soup, Fruited Turkey and Yams, Seafood Cheese Fondue, Vanilla Steamers, and Fudgy Peanut Butter Cake. Mmmmm, just the thought of it makes me want to take out my slow cooker right now and start cooking up a storm! 🙂
For kids, there’s the Fix-It and Forget-It Kids’ Cookbook: 50 Favorite Recipes to Make in a Slow Cooker which offers kids the direction and encouragement they need to prepare easy-to-make, tasty meals—everything from main courses to snacks and even desserts! Now, you can get your kids cooking without the fear of a hot stove or open flame with this first-ever kids’ slow cooker cookbook by Phyllis Pellman Good. With yummy, kid-friendly recipes such as Pizza Dip, Party Meatball Subs and Gooey Chocolate Pudding Cake, this kids’ cookbook is sure to be a hit for the budding chef in your household!
The Fix-It and Forget It cookbooks have sold nearly 10 million copies. Fans credit the popularity of the cookbooks to their accessible recipes, geared to those with little time or confidence to cook. Both books are now available at leading book retailers: Borders, Barnes and Noble and at Amazon.com.
