Screen shot 2013-03-09 at 9.36.50 AM.png
Easter is approaching and traditionally is a meal similar to winter holidays. Holiday Slow Cooker: A Year of Hassle-Free Celebrations is not a vegetarian cookbook, but it does have many recipes I would like to try.

With the perfectly adapted recipes in this book, you can prepare all the holiday classics without spending hours in the kitchen! Simply toss the ingredients in your slow cooker and go enjoy the festivities with family and friends while dinner is cooking in the other room. From tasty appetizers and delicious sides to enticing entrées and heavenly desserts, Holiday Slow Cooker teaches you the easy, hasslefree way to make all the traditional favorites, including:
• Piquant Black-Eyed Peas
for New Year's
• Easy N'Awlins Slow Cooker Gumbo
for Mardi Gras
• Lobster Bisque
for Valentine's Day
• Classic Corned Beef and Cabbage
for St. Patrick's Day
• Leg of Lamb
for Easter Sunday
• Caramel Flan
for Cinco de Mayo
• Breakfast Quiche
for Mother's Day Brunch
• Buffalo Chicken Wings
for Fourth of July
• Autumn Pork Stew
for Halloween
• Pumpkin Butter
for Thanksgiving
• Candied Sweet Potatoes
for Christmas
• Challah Pudding
for Hanukkah
With full-color photos and great recipes, this book allows you to craft perfect dinners with minimal stress. Plus, the benefits of using a slow cooker go beyond tasty meals, they allow you to free up space on the stove, let dessert cook while you are enjoying dinner, and keep dishes warm for fabulous party dips, fondues and more.

I love cooking in my slow cooker, as it takes away the pressure of dinner preparations in the busy evening time.

I find it odd that the recipe for Maple Carrots has no maple syrup in it. Hmmm. There are very few vegetarian recipes included.

It is interesting that this cookbook is arranged by holiday, and I would love to make the chocolate fondue.
