I was eager to review Holiday Slow Cooker: Delicious Recipes for a Year of Hassle-Free Celebrations by Jonnie Downing. Separated into recipes for all of the holidays from New Year's Day to Christmas and Hanukkah. I know the big food holidays are still a while out – BUT, I am already stressed out about what to make, getting it all done, making sure all the food is made great even though I work full time and do not have days to prep. Product received for review. Post contains affiliate links.
Slow Cooker Recipes for the Holidays
Oftentimes, it seems hard to pull it all together, but with a slow cooker (or now that I have this book a slow cooker or TWO) on hand, at least ONE of the dishes can be put together and left to sit a while to cook while I am speeding around my kitchen finishing the rest of the meal. Just in case you were worried about your favorite holiday, here is what Jonnie Downing covers in the book: New Year's, Presidents' Day, Mardi Gras, Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Cinco De Mayo, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Fourth of July, Bastille Day (which now that I have recipes like Ratatouille and Squash Bisque I might start celebrating!), Oktoberfest, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Hanukkah.
Even though I have a month to prepare for Thanksgiving, I think I will start practicing by getting my slow cooker out and making some turkey soup with dumplings :). YUM!
Do you use your slow cooker for holiday cooking?
