review:
Didn’t get a chance to make too much from this. My one quibble just from skimming recipes is that most of them fall into 6 hours or so (many quite a bit less) of cooking, which doesn’t work for me on weekdays. That, and if I’m using the slow cooker, it means I’m feeling LAZY (and/or are trying to cook before work), so I can’t handle a whole lot of pre-prep.

All that said, I made chili, and it was DELICIOUS. Also appreciated the tip of "poaching" frozen chicken for use later. (Would cook a little less time (was almost overdone at 6 hours), maybe add some Johnny’s Seasoning Salt to the broth.)

Definitely want to get my own copy to try out more recipes.

  1. I made the Senator Goldwater Chili, and actually just made it again on Sunday. It reminds me somewhat of a canned chili, but in a good way.

    (BTW, the poached chicken breasts were really only good in enchiladas. It needs something really moist to keep from being appallingly dry, or at least that was my experience.)
