    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.
    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. 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. 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, Moroccan-Spiced Tomato Chicken with Almonds, Lamb Stew with Lemon and Garlic, and Vegetable Polenta with Mascarpone Cheese. 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.

      Many what look to be great recipes. I'm anxious to start experimenting. Sadly, no pictures. We ALL like the pictures that inspire us and tantalize out taste buds. All cookbooks would benefit from pictures. BUT, since we buy a book for content, that part seems to be excellent.

      This cookbook gives us appropriately scaled dishes for two that we can set up and forget about. Slow cooker meals have always been on my wish-list but were never feasible because we don't need to cook for an army and though the idea of cooking & freezing sounds good, we live in town and don't have enough room in our kitchen fridge - so this cookbook is perfect for us.
