The Hungry Family Slow Cooker Cookbook Blog Tour

It's every busy mother's dream-come-true: dinner that makes itself! With the help of your trusty slow cooker and these healthy, easy recipes, like Peppery Cilantro Salmon, Sausage Stew, and Dark Chocolate Mini Cakes, you can put dinner on the table even on the craziest of days. Don't let the whirlwind of life stop you from feeding your family the food they deserve -- delicious, home-cooked meals straight from your slow cooker.
Bio (from Amazon):

Christina Dymock was once at a dinner party where her husband was teasing her about the frosting-to-cupcake ratio on her dessert. The woman sitting across from them sniffed her delicate nose and said, "If my husband gave me a hard time about my frosting I'd quit baking. That'd show him." To which Christina's husband replied while pointing at his speechless wife, "Try to stop her!"

Christina divides her time between the kitchen and her computer and books and her family of six. (Naturally, the family gets the biggest share.) Because she reads everything, she also feels compelled to write in several genres.

Christina is the author of The Hungry Family, Young Chefs, 101 Things to Do with Popcorn, and the Widow's Mite.

Bloggy note:
Unfortunately, AimeeKay who is going to review this book, did not receive the book in time for the review, but I know she is excited to get started and even make some of the great things in the book for her family! So... check out this book in the meantime and her review will be coming!

  1. I (can't) don't cook. Fortunately, I established very early on in all of my relationships that my place was NOT in the kitchen, and as a result I've always been well-fed. I can manage slow cooker cuisine though; it's one of the very few skills I've acquired. LOL So, thanks for introducing me to this new book. I'm looking forward to checking out the author's recipes.

  9. Just looking at those pics is making me hungry beyond words. I cook, but mostly I bake because baking, for some reason, works as anti-depressant for me. Cooking makes me nervous occasionally, but never baking.

  10. I'm in love with my crock pot, the husband and I are big fans of pulled pork, chicken, beef etc., so we love just being able to drop whatever it is in in the morning and then letting the slow cooker do all the work for us. Looking forward to AimeeKay's thoughts on the recipes:)

  13. I have two slow cookers since I have two teenaged boys. I had to upgrade to a bigger size. And I love mine. But most of the recipes I find seem to be the same version of the same thing. I'm interested in Aimee Kay's review of it.

  14. Hmm, I'm curious. We are always on the go but everyone wants a home cooked meal. This might be the answer. :)
