I love cooking for family and friends. Some of my tried and true recipes are cooked with the help of my handy, all-in-one cooking appliance called the slow cooker. I can’t live without my slow cooker! I totally love the idea of creating delicious dishes without too much effort. Put all the ingredients together and place them in the slow cooker and go do other things on your to-do list. It’s time-saving and makes my busy day a lot easier!
I love collecting cookbooks too and I’m always happy to try out new recipes from some of my favorite ones. So I was thrilled when I got a copy of the #SlowCookerSunday cookbook by T-Mobile CEO and Chef John Legere. Friends, this is not your normal cookbook with great recipes. It’s a cookbook full of delicious recipes + great advice on how to be a great CEO and a successful entrepreneur.
First, let’s talk about the recipes in this cookbook. With a foreword by domestic diva Martha Stewart, #SlowCookerSunday cookbook features 52 of John Legere’s favorite slow cooker recipes – other people’s recipes that he had adapted and enjoyed over the years – one for every Sunday of the year. I love that the recipes are grouped and organized around a theme and around a story. For example, Chapter One has the theme (and now one of my top favorite quotes!): “Stand for something and don’t be a chicken” featuring delicious dishes that are not chicken and where John also shares valuable tips on making bolder moves at work and in the kitchen.
I have a lot of favorite recipes from this cookbook and was quite surprised that he had Filipino Beef Afritada included in the first chapter too – one of my top favorite Filipino dishes! I know I have mentioned it before, but in case you don’t know, I’m Asian-American and was born and raised in the Philippines. Our family takes pride in eating home-cooked meals everyday and I credit that to my late mother who used to cook a lot for me and my siblings when we were growing up. I have fond memories of her cooking up a storm in the kitchen all the time and our house would always smell amazing… and she had the best recipe for Filipino Beef Afritada too!
What can I say? I love cooking and I love food! 🙂
I also love the fact that this cookbook offers small glimpses of John’s amazing story as a runner, single dad, cooking show host and CEO of the “Un-carrier” while weaving in some great advice and personal stories sprinkled with a lot of humor. You’ll agree with me on this when you find out about the “PAM Shuffle” from this cookbook. You’ve got to know what it means. It’s really quite funny!
Well, I don’t want to give away too much about this wonderful cookbook, so go grab your own copy today! It’s also great to know that John Legere and T-Mobile are committed to giving back so the net proceeds from the sales of this cookbook will go to Feeding America to support its mission to feed America’s hungry.
