Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbook (NYM Series) - Beth Hensperger, Julie Kaufmann This is a great cookbook if you like the crock-pot but hate the thought of throwing in a bunch of cans of condensed soups and calling it home cooking. Some of the recipes do require more effort than what some slow-cooker enthusiasts would prefer, but I think it's worth it for the end result. There are also a few recipes that are complete misses but that hasn't happened often. I also think that perhaps the slow-cookers the authors used weren't as new or varied as the current models available--another friend of mine has this book and she agrees that some of the cooking times are actually too long if your slow cooker gets very hot (even set on low). Otherwise, it's been a wonderful resource for me and one of the most-used cookbooks on my shelf.
