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 deserve¾delicious, home-cooked meals straight from your slow cooker.


Christina Dymock graduated from the University of Utah with a B.S. in Public Relations. She has been published in Woman’s World Magazine, several Chicken Soup for the Soul books and is the author of “101 Things to do With Popcorn” and “Young Chefs: Cooking Skills and Recipes for Kids.” She resides in Central Utah with her husband and four children. You can follow their cooking adventures at          


I don't normally review cookbooks, mostly because I'm not much of a cook.  But this one appealed to me because the recipes sounded simple enough for a cooking amateur like me.  And I was right.  The recipes are great and many can be prepared in a matter of minutes and then left to cook while you do other things. In addition to the great recipes, the book is beautifully designed with gorgeous photographs that just make your mouth water.  Each recipe is easy to read and the personal comments the author provides make for a more personal touch as well as presenting ideas for how she uses the different recipes.  As an amateur I also appreciated the safety and care tips at the front of the book.  All in all a wonderful cookbook for amateur and professional alike.
