    Beth Hensperger, a New Jersey native who has lived in California since her teens, has been educating, writing, and demo-lecturing about the art of baking for over 30 years. In the last few years, she has shifted focus to countertop appliance-driven cookbooks that embrace adapting traditional and professional recipes for the home cook: the bread machine, the rice cooker, the microwave, and a four-volume compilation specifically for use with the electric slow cooker, stressing personal creativity in preparation and selection of ingredients. Hensperger is the author of over 22 cookbooks, including the best-selling Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbook series, which includes NYMSC Recipes for Entertaining, NYMSC Family Favorites, and NYMSC Recipes for Two, along with the blockbuster first volume, Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbook. Her other books include highly-acclaimed titles such as The Bread Lover's Bread Machine Cookbook, The Ultimate Rice Cooker Cookbook, NYM Microwave Cookbook, and NYM Weeknight Cooking. She is also the author of The Bread Bible (Chronicle Books), winner of a James Beard Award in 2000. She has twice been nominated for the Julia Child/IACP Cookbook Award. Hensperger wrote a San Jose Mercury News food column for twelve years, ?Baking with the Seasons.? She is a contributor to dozens of national and online cooking & lifestyle magazines, such as Food & Wine, Rachael Ray Magazine, Veggie Life, Cooking Light, Working Woman, Victoria, Prevention, and Family Circle, and is a sought after newspaper and radio interviewee speaking on slow cooking, bread baking, and entertaining. She lives in the San Francisco Bay area. Visit her website at www.bethhensperger.com and blog at www.notyourmotherscookbook.com. Julie Kaufmann, a native of Albuquerque, New Mexico, has lived in California since 1979. She is an editor of the food section of the San Jose Mercury News. Before becoming a food editor, she wrote ?Kids in the Kitchen,? a twice-monthly food column for kids, also for the San Jose Mercury News. She previously worked on West, which was the Sunday magazine for the San Jose Mercury News, and spent a decade on the paper's business section. In addition to her work at the San Jose Mercury News, Kaufmann has taught editing in the Communications Department at Santa Clara University, in Santa Clara, California. Until recently she co-wrote a monthly mystery novel review with her husband for the San Jose Mercury News. She is an avid home cook who has coauthored several books with Beth Hensperger. Kaufmann lives in Palo Alto, California, with her husband and two children. Web: NotYourMothersCookbooks.com; Facebook presence.
    You probably own a slow cooker—80 percent of American households do. For more than thirty years, its unbeatable convenience and practicality have made it a staple of busy families, enabling anyone to return to a home-cooked meal at the end of a hectic day. Many slow cooker recipes, however, have relied on less-than-healthy convenience products.

    Now, Beth Hensperger and Julie Kaufmann’s Not Your Mother’s® Slow Cooker Cookbook takes a completely fresh look at cooking with this popular appliance. This comprehensive collection of 350 recipes combines the ease of slow cooking with the fresh, wholesome ingredients and exciting flavors of today’s kitchen.

    For days when there’s just no time for prep, there’s Orange and Honey Chicken Drumsticks or Country Ribs with Onions, Apples, and Sauerkraut. For (slightly!) less hectic days there’s Tangy Tomato Brisket or Lentil and Red Pepper Soup. Stay out of the kitchen when guests arrive with Duck Breasts with Port Wine Sauce or wake up to breakfast with Hot Apple Granola Oatmeal. Hensperger and Kaufmann offer dishes for every time frame, without compromising on taste, quality, or variety. And Not Your Mother’s® Slow Cooker Cookbook showcases the best of home cooking while taking advantage of a global melting pot of flavors—so cooks can serve Chicken and Shrimp Jambalaya one day and Japanese Beef Curry Rice another. All the classic slow cooker recipes are here, plus many more adventuresome and innovative dishes. There is also practical information on the different types of slow cookers, their latest accessories, and what sizes are best for what purposes.

    • One ot have on the bookshelf
      Verified Purchase

      I had borrowed this book from the library, and renewed in a few times, so I knew what i was getting--a good slow cooker cookbook, with some recipes you don't find other places. I checked out various sites to buy this book, and, considering shipping costs, Overstock was the best value.

    • DIsappointing
      Verified Purchase

      The recipes in the book seem good enough, but if you like to see pictures (which I do), you will be disappointed in the book. There is not a single picture thoughout.

    • Surprisingly Excellent
      Verified Purchase

      I didn't have high expectations for a slow cooker cookbook. However, I was very excited to read so many interesting, delicious recipes. The book is well organized, has a lot of interesting notes and stories to correspond with the delicious recipes. The book was an interesting read, and taught me about the fundamentals of slow cooking. And, the recipes are outstanding. I highly recommend this book.

    • Excellent Cookbook
      Verified Purchase

      I wasn't sure what to expect - this was an impulse purchase! We have since cooked out of this book every single week since it arrived with excellent results. I feel like my crockpot is now a permanent fixture on my counter. Recipes range from breakfast cereals to soups to main dishes with very original meals and many easy to prep items.

    • Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbook
      Verified Purchase

      This cookbook fits the current gourmet tastes in food and has preparations that are sophisticated but doable. And equally important to cook book collectors, it's a good read of food history and culture. It is truly not your mother's version of crock pot meals.
