What's good recipe book for a 3.5 quart slow cooker?

Asked by gailcalled (54570points) November 12th, 2007

I don’t mind small amts of animal protein but need more veggies, beans, grains.

The recipe book that came w. it is awful…flour, butter, bacon fat, processed ingredients…all recipes use meat, chicken and fish. Any ideas?

Is the recipe book you have “Fix It and Forget It”? It has a lot of the old favorites like Super Bowl Dip with pounds of Velveeta (ew!), but I’m pretty sure it also has some more healthy options, like veggie soups. It might be worth checking out from the library.

Slow cooker is made by Kalorik…6 recipes arrived in a little pamphlet from them…and let’s not forget the heavy cream, sour cream and Armagnac everyone has hanging around the house. ..I believe also that the recipes were translated from the German, since the amts were odd and one ingredient was chive – maybe originally in the metric system.

I just ordered a remaindered copy from Amazon of ”- Not Your Mother’s Slow Cooker Recipes for Two: For the Small Slow Cooker..”. But checking at the library is a good idea. Thanks, Emily.
