When you come home, after a long day at work, wouldn't you love to have a delicious, healthy dinner all ready and waiting, filling the air with an irresistible aroma? You can--by tossing some vegetables, meat, or fish into a slow cooker in the morning and then just letting it simmer into a robust stew, light soup, or pasta sauce. Not only do these recipes require little preparation time, but each has an incredible marriage of flavors that results only from lengthy cooking. And, they're low in fat and sodium, too! You'll get simple instructions on how the equipment works so that you'll feel like a real chef as you whip up such mouthwatering temptations as Grecian Beef Stew, Winter Vegetables with Cheddar and Croutons, Italian Tomato Soup, Twice-Cooked Almond Potatoes, Easy Turkey Meatballs, Rainbow Trout with Orange, Banana-Almond-Maple Custard, and more--all marvelously yummy.
