Make delicious meals in your slow cooker with these new recipes from the Fix-It and Forget-It cookbook.

Fix it and Forget it- Slow Cooker Magic
Fall is quickly approaching which means I am going to be doing a lot of cooking in my slow cooker. I cook with my slow cooker year round, but I actually start to use it almost on a daily basis in the Fall. I love being able to throw ingredients into it, turn it on and hours later have a hearty and delicious dinner fit for my entire family. The new Fix-It and Forget-It Slow Cooker Magic by Phyllis Good is the perfect addition to my cookbook collection. This new cookbook was just released at the beginning of August and features a vast selection of recipes, 550 recipes to be exact!

The cookbook is perfect for everyone from college students, people on a budget to large families. There are recipes for everyone including vegans! The recipes are compiled from Ms. Good’s fans and tested by a selected group of home cooks so the recipes are tried and true. I certainly appreciate that about the recipes. I have some cookbooks that require unusual ingredients or skills that a normal at home cook does not have. I know I purchased a child’s cookbook once and tried to make the recipes, and they were absolutely terrible. I am positive no-one had made the recipes before they were put in a cookbook, and some of the techniques required to make some of the meals were not practical for an adult little alone a child.
The ingredients and techniques in this remarkable book are practical, affordable and something that anyone can make.

The table of contents include recipes for the following categories:
Appetizers, Snacks, Spreads, and Beverages
Breakfast and Breads
Soups, Stews, and Chili’s
Main Dishes: Chicken, Turkey, Beef, Pork, Pasta, Grains, Meatless, and Seafood
Vegetables and Side Dishes
Sweets and Desserts
Everyday From-Scratch Basics
There are several full-color images of some of the featured recipes included in the book. Additionally each recipe includes serving size, prep time, cooking time and Ideal slow cooker size. I love the fact that it includes the ideal slow cooker size. I think this is crucial because if you only have a 4-quart slow cooker the 6-quart recipes are not going to fit. Plus if you have more than one size you can use the proper size for the recipe.

Here are a couple of fantastic recipes from this book.

Fix-It and Forget-It Slow Cooker Magic Cookbook
Raspberry Chocolate Chip Bread
Rosanna Martin
Morgantown, WV

Makes 10 servings
Prep. Time: 25 minutes
Cooking Time: 3-4 hours
Ideal slow-cooker size: 6 qt.

1 cup whole wheat flour
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup rolled oats
2/3 cup sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
3/4 cup fresh or unsweetened frozen raspberries (do not thaw)
2/3 cup chocolate chips
1 egg, lightly beaten
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup canola oil
1 tsp. vanilla extract

1. In large bowl, mix flours, oats, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Gently stir in raspberries and chocolate chips.
2. Separately, mix egg, buttermilk, oil, and vanilla.
3. Gently stir wet ingredients into dry until just barely mixed—streaks of flour are fine.
4. Make sure your loaf pan fits in your oval 6-quart slow cooker. Grease and flour loaf pan. Set it on a jar ring or other heat-resistant thing to keep it off the floor of the cooker.
5. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
6. Put lid on cooker, propping it open at one end with a chopstick or wooden spoon handle.
7. Cook on High for 3-4 hours, until tester inserted in middle comes out clean.
8. Wearing oven mitts (to protect your knuckles!), remove hot pan from hot cooker and allow it to cool for 10 minutes. Run a knife around the edge and turn loaf out on cooling rack to cool for an additional 30 minutes before slicing.

Tips:
Serve with butter or cream cheese, if you wish, but I love it by itself with a glass of milk.
