The one gift that I really wanted for Christmas, I didn’t receive this year. No, it wasn’t fancy jewelry (although jewelry is always nice…) or a new car. I really just wanted my own copy of Stephanie O’Dea’s Make it Fast, Cook it Slow Cookbook.
I originally checked this book out from our library in early December and tried several recipes.
Everything I tried was great and I had many more bookmarked to try but my renewal limit was reached and I grudgingly had to return the book.
The recipes I tried while I had the book included:
Chai Tea Latte – pg. 8
Peppermint Hot Chocolate pg. 13
Pumpkin Spice Latte pg. 15
Buffalo Chicken Dip pg. 25
Five-layer Brownies pg. 64
Peanut Butter Brownies pg. 72
Coq Au Vin pg. 256
A-1 and Dijon Steak pg. 297
Chex Party Mix pg. 386
Crunchy Roasted Garbanzo Beans pg. 391
Pumpkin Pie pg. 421
Stephanie recently released another cookbook – More Make it Fast, Cook it Slow and I’d love to own her new book as well.
Crockpot cooking is ideal for my life. I can make it early in the morning or during nap and it’s ready without a lot of prep during the “witching hours” at our house. Even the baking recipes (I made the banana bread from the first book on Tuesday for a playdate!) are no-fuss. I like being able to put it all together and walk away. With real baking, if I’m in the midst of a diaper derby, a few extra minutes in the oven can quickly ruin the recipe. A few extra minutes in the crock — no big deal!
Stephanie’s recipes are family friendly and even gluten-free. The newest book is budget-friendly as well!
