Great Cookbook

It’s 4:45pm and you haven’t the foggiest idea what you are going to make for dinner. You open the fridge and the only thing jumping out at you are leftovers. You don’t want to serve the same thing as the night before, but defrosting something would take too long as well. Ordering out is an option, but you want to serve low calorie and low fat foods to your family…ordering out doesn’t usually get you that.

If that sounds anything like you, then you really need to pick up this cookbook, The Busy Mom’s Slow Cooker Cookbook by Jyl Steinback. It has more than 320 low calorie and low fat recipes. Each recipe includes the nutritional information, as well as a shopping list of ingredients that you would need for the recipe. So while you will be ordering out today, since you didn’t plan ahead, you can plan the rest of your week while eating your take-out!


My local grocery store had this cookbook, but I have also seen it on and at the major chain bookstores like Barnes and Noble and Borders.

Enjoy! A must try recipe is the Sweet and Sour Chicken. My whole family, including my 4 year old and 1 year old, loved that dish.

    So at 4:45pm you can cook a recipe out of this cookbook that is for SLOW COOKERS???? What time do you eat dinner, midnight?

    The point of a slow cooker is that you put the food in it in the morning and let it cook all day. Therefore you would not have the issue of it being 4:45 and not having dinner ready. THAT is the point of getting the cookbook and using the slow cooker.
