Finally inspired to buy a slow cooker to make cooking huge batches of beans easier, I had to get a cookbook to go alongside. The layout of the recipes is helpful, telling you if you need a smaller cooker or to double or triple a recipe if you only have a larger one. She also includes simple steps (like sauteing) that need to be done the night before.

I haven't made very much yet, but there are a ton of recipes that look good. So far I've made:

~Dry Beans from Scratch 5*
~Split Pea & Lentil Soup

I also like that she included how to make staples like beans and seitan with a slow cooker, not just stews and soups. I am looking forward to cooking up a sto ...more

I like the recipe write ups, and there are a lot of recipes I want to try. I've got a slow-cooker now, so I'm going to give these a go!

Makes me wish I had a slow-cooker, I have my eye on one and am hoping it will go on sale soon! Love the sound of a number of these, particularly the breads - didnt realise you could make them in here!

Dry beans from scratch! What a great idea. I no longer need to buy canned black beans!
