Savvy cooks know a slow cooker can make life a lot easier, providing a fast, hot meal waiting for you when you get home. This particular collection is a healthier, meat-free alternative to all those pulled pork, chicken taco, stuffed cheesy beef sausage soup diet bombs. Recipes heavy on vegetables infuse tofu, seitan, beans and other protein sources and are accompanied by beautiful pictures that will make you want to go buy a little slow cooker immediately. The author even instructs how to make many vegan staples as home, such as gluten crumbles and hazelnut coffee creamer (with real hazelnuts!). Meat and cheese fans may not adapt this book as a kitchen staple but vegetarians and vegans will be happy to have a slow cooker book to call their own.
The winter holiday season may be coming to a close, but that doesn't mean you can't celebrate all year long! The Pioneer Woman Ree Drummond, blogger and television host is known for making hearty meals for her family with lots of love, butter and cream. This recipe book is filled with pies, steaks, brunches and cheesy dips for every occasion. Each recipe is accompanied by gorgeous photos detailing the process, step-by-step. The guide is a fool proof way to celebrate every holiday, including Super Bowl Sunday, Valentine's Day and even St. Patrick's Day. Although this book won't aid in your New Year's resolution to get fit, it will make you a hit at your next holiday party or gathering.
