Description


The James Beard Award–winning author follows up the best-selling Not Your Mother's® Slow Cooker Cookbook with Not Your Mother's® Slow Cooker Recipes for Two, a collection of 125 new recipes specially designed for the small slow cooker.

Nearly 60 percent of American households today consist of only one or two people, yet most cookbooks don't reflect this trend, with recipes designed for large families, yielding 6–8 servings. For individuals and small families who want to cook hearty, healthful meals but don't want to deal with all the leftovers, Beth Hensperger has the solution with Not Your Mother's® Slow Cooker Recipes for Two.

As always, Hensperger's innovative recipes call for fresh, healthful ingredients and continue to prove that the slow cooker can produce amazing meals. While the recipes yield the perfect amount for two or three people, there is no shortage of flavor with dishes such as:
  • Quick Hominy and Zucchini Chili
  • Fennel Potato Leek Soup
  • Moroccan-Spiced Tomato Chicken with Almonds
  • Lamb Stew with Lemon and Garlic
  • Vegetable Polenta with Mascarpone Cheese
  • Cabernet Short Ribs of Beef with Apricots
The slow cooker is an essential countertop appliance for busy cooks, and this is the only book on the market specifically written for the increasingly popular 1 ½–3 ½-quart slow cooker. Not Your Mother's® Slow Cooker Recipes for Two is great for the growing population of empty-nesters, working couples, singles, and small families who want the convenience of small slow-cooker cooking without sacrificing wholesomeness and flavor.

Discover even more modern takes on classic techniques and dishes from the Not Your Mother’s series: Not Your Mother's Microwave Cookbook; Not Your Mother's Fondue; Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbook, Revised and Expanded; Not Your Mother's Casseroles Revised and Expanded Edition; and Not Your Mother's Make-Ahead and Freeze Cookbook Revised and Expanded Edition.
