Description - The Farmer's Wife Slow Cooker Cookbook by Lela Nargi
The early twentieth-century world of The Farmers Wife may be vastly different than our own hectic, high-tech times, but some things never changelike a taste for the kind of food thats cooked all day, the long-simmered stews and chilis, pot roasts and soups and puddings that savor of comfort and care. Culled from the pages of The Farmers Wife and adapted for contemporary lifestyles and kitchenware, these recipes help todays cook recapture the full rich flavor of slow-cooked food steeped in the traditions of Americas heartland. With a modicum of preparation in the morning or even the night before, anyone can come home to the kind of meals that yesterdays farmers wife prepared; the slow-cooked beans and barbeque, casseroles, and hot dishes that could serve a few friends, a big hungry family, or a whole community. For party dishes that let a host focus on guests; for meals that wont heat up the summer kitchen; for hearty, delicious fare to satisfy gatherings big and small with leftovers to store for later meals, these slow-cooker recipes are the perfect time-wise, money-saving way to dish up a great helping of farmland history.
