A Year of Slow Cooking

Thursday, June 18, 2009

Make it Fast, Cook it Slow: The Big Book of Everyday Slow Cooking



Make it Fast, Cook it Slow: The Big Book of Everyday Slow Cooking contains 338 tried-and-true slow cooker recipes.

The book is the best of the best of my "Year of Slow Cooking"----these are recipes that have been tested in my own home kitchen using my own slow cookers, and have been tasted by my own (sometimes picky) family. The recipes have also been tested by home cooks from around the world, with their notes and results documented under each recipe on the website.

The book is set up the same way as the blog, with detailed instructions and a short "verdict."
To keep the price of the book down, and to include as many recipes as possible, I have opted to not include photos.

I don't like cooking before I cook, and prefer to not brown meat on the stove top before throwing it into the pot. Many people prefer to pre-brown meat---they like the color and texture this step provides. Whether or not you pre-brown meat is a personal choice, and unless I've specifically included pre-browning in the instructions, assume that the meat has gone in raw (sometimes frozen!) and undoctored.

We are a gluten free family. Gluten is found in wheat, barley, and rye. Oats are off limits, too, unless they are from a specified gluten-free source. Everything in the book has been made completely gluten-free. If you do not need to worry about gluten, feel free to ignore my notes or file them away in case you ever need to cook for someone with a gluten intolerance. As always, read labels carefully on your own since manufacturers have been known to switch ingredients without notice.

If you'd like to learn more about going gluten free, I recommend the following websites:
Sure Foods Living
Gluten Free Easily
The W.H.O.L.E. Gang (whole healthy organic living everyday)
Karina's Kitchen, Recipes from a Gluten Free Goddess
Elana's Pantry

Because we live with allergies, and because I'm a crazy Californian, I try to balance the amount of fat, sodium, and processed foods our family ingests. I'm certainly not a purist, and definitely enjoy a good dose of Velveeta now and then, but the recipes I've included in this book are not your typical "cover with cream-of-whatever soup" slow cooker fare.

Thank you so much for your support, it means so very much.

Any questions? Email me directly at crockpotlady AT gmail DOT com.

How exciting!! I've just popped on over to Amazon and pre-ordered by copy. I hope it's a huge success.

~Sarah said...

When did you change the name of the blog? I just noticed it, and although "slow cooking" is probably more appropriate as the ol' "CP" is trademarked, I loved the use of "crockpotting" as a verb!

Congrats on your book! I confess to sometimes reading old posts just for the pure entertainment value. Sometimes I think you're a little whacko with the stuff you throw together, but it's always good for a laugh, and more often than not stuff tastes pretty darn good!

Lisa said...

Congratulations! Off to order.....

Laura said...

Congratulations! I love your website and have tried many of your recipes. Thank you!

Laura said...

Congratulations-it IS a pretty book! I have tried many of your recipes-thanks!!

Congratulations! I pre-ordered. I can't tell you how much I've enjoyed trying out recipes from your website. Taco Soup has become an all time family famvorite, and makes for a fantastic lunch in my thermos.

Jamie said...

That is so great Stephanie! Congratulations!

Karen said...

Wow, that looks great!!! Does it have all of your recipes in it or just some of your favorites? Did you come up with all the recipes yourself? Congrats!!!! You are awesome!

Michelle Cato said...

October??? Must we really wait that long? Oh well with the rate summer is flying October should be here before we know it. And the cover looks magnificent!!

Michelle said...

It is so pretty ;) Congratulations Steph !!!!

Lynn said...

So happy for you...I was wondering...is the "slow cooking" title change for the blog your idea to just freshen it up a bit or has it ecipsed "crockpotting" as being politically incorrect ? Is crockpot now a outdated word ? Is it considered "low brow" by the masses and therefore unacceptable ?

I know how Martha Stewart feels about crockpots...she snickers and looks down her nose with riducule on them ! ( not funny to those of us who love our crockpots )...errr...slow cookers !
LOL

sweetpea_path said...

MANY CONGRATS, you sure have worked hard for this...what a LOVELY book!!!

Walden said...

Congrats!

Jenny said...

It's really, really beautiful:) Congratulations!

gfcfmom said...

I am so excited to see the book. The cover is great. Also, what would be your fantasy island crock pot??? Have a lot of manufacturers sent you crock pots? Just curious. I lost my lid and need to buy one. I am turning 40 this year and might celebrate by splurging on a new, fancy crock pot. Any ideas. I need something non toxic and as green as possible--if that exists in a crock pot.

Nik said...

So very well done, you! Congratulations!

Theresa said...

Hi, I awarded you the Kreativ Blogger award. Check out my blog:)

Alicia said...

Congratulations!

I am curious - why did you change your site to "A Year of Slow Cooking" from "Crockpotting"?

Beth said...

The cover is beautiful! And, from the past year, I know the contents will be amazing as well. I'll look for this one for Christmas presents! Congratulations!

Stephanie O'Dea said...

Hi Alicia,

it was a publishing decision----they wanted the site to reflect the book.

Carmen O. said...

I can't wait for your book to come out! I made the BBQ Pulled Pork this week. We love it and usually freeze some of it for another day, that is of course if it doesn't get all gobbled up!

I love this site and use it loads so a book would be like always being logged in!

Good on you and congratulations! I hope all your hard work pays off.

Jana and Family said...

Congrats!!! And thanks for making crock potting fun again. Please don't stop now, you can take a nap but I don't want the new tries to stop. I have learned a lot of new and fun things from you.

Lydia said...

Congrats Stephanie! This cookbook will definitely be on my shelf!

Jennifer said...

SO happy for you! I too love the cover. Will all the recipe's in the book be gluten-free?

Angie said...

Lori Stoia said...

Jessica said...

Congratulations! I noticed there is no Kindle version. Do you plan to offer a Kindle version? I love my kindle. I've just started popping it into a ziploc bag and using it to show me recipes in the kitchen. No need to find something to prop the pages open to keep the book from closing

I immediately pre-ordered this. After all the countless hours you have saved me, it's the very least I could do. Aside from an incredible reference for meals, I hope I can, in some way, contribute back to you! Thank you, thank you, thank you, for all your hard work. My stomach thanks you, too!

KimboSue said...

I recently stumbled on your blog via a link from www.cheaphealthygood.blogspot.com. Congrats on the book. I will be getting a copy for myself! Love the recipes - and you're a good read too!

mare said...

Absolute congrats on the book and on the newbie!! (Reverse the order: Congrats on the babe and on the book :-)

What portion or percent of the recipes are GF? I can make my own adaptions for vegetarian and vegan.

Stephanie O'Dea said...

Hi Mare,

they are all gluten free. The book is set up similarly to the site---I've included how I've prepared the meal or dish gluten free, and those who don't need to worry about gluten can simply ignore my notes. ;-)

May you have much success with it!

Kim said...

Stephanie
We are a gluten free (and dairy free) family and I was so completely excited to find your blog! I preordered the book and read it this weekend. My family thought I was weird reading a cookbook, but oh well. I'm surprised that the harvest soup didn't make the book, it's one of my favorites!! Thanks for giving me a sane dinner hour back :)

Burnice said...

I have the book and have read it cover to cover. Clear, funny and easy to read and the recipes are clear and easy also, Thanks Stephanie!

Alexis said...

My copy just came yesterday, I am sooooo excited! Already using the ham recipe for out turkey day spiral ham (we are not turkey fans) and I have big plans for a ton of the recipes. Great job!

J-M said...

I just want to say thank you. I have been searching for exactly this slow cooker cookbook -- one that uses fresh ingredients and has more than just soups and stews and foods that come out looking completely unappetizing (gray meat, blech!). You have created recipes that I actually want to cook and eat. I also appreciate your humor and honesty with "The Verdict" for each recipe.

dolci said...

I bought this book for myself last week and brought it home; one of my roommates got REALLY upset with me. Turns out she had bought it for me as a Christmas gift. Oh well! Anyway, made the Indonesian Peanut Chicken during the snowstorm this past weekend and I have been bringing it to work for lunch. It is AWESOME. First time I have ever used a slow cooker and I am hooked.

karen said...

Got it for xmas, as requested, and am about to go make Lemon Chicken, which will be the 2nd recipe I make - I made Turky/Wild Rice Soup w/the leftovers from the holidays, and it was delicious. Glad I have some stocked in the freezer now for another time. Have reco'd the book to many.

Bonnie said...

We love this cookbook! Recipes are great! Thank you!!!!!

Heather said...

I enjoyed your year of crockpot recipes and just picked up a copy of your cookbook. Thanks for the hard work! I was happy to see that the book carries your "voice" and comments on recipes.

deborah said...

Just want to say THANK YOU for creating this fantastic, practical & mom friendly cookbook. I had been looking for a good crockpot cookbook for a few years now. We're a family of 4 and I work out of the house 40-50 hrs a week in a family business. I do all the cooking (my husband does the clean up) and thought the slow cooker could be a valuable asset to get a healthy dinner on the table at a reasonable time. However all the books I found were boring & old fashioned. Your book is fresh & inventive. Your "verdict" section is both humorous and helpful. I've told all my family and friends to go buy one! I have a lot of cookbooks and have never had one with so many recipies marked to try. Everything I have made has turned out great. Congratulations, thank you and if you ever publish another one, I'll buy that too!

Ruby said...

I am anxiously awaiting receipt of this cookbook. Since I found your blog I'm using my crockpot far more. Also I'm using it for things I'd never have thought to make in a crock - roasted garlic; onion soup.

Amazing - thank you

Amy said...

I read about your book over on www.balancingeverything.com and decided to take a look at it. I went to B&N and scoured over it for an hour or so and the verdict was YES! So I came home and just ordered my copy today! Can't wait for it to arrive!

Anonymous said...

Finally got your first cookbook as a Christmas gift this year (after spending 2+ years utilizing your blog). Now I can make your recipes without dragging my laptop into the kitchen! :D

If you ever do another edition, it would be great if the index could include recipes by size of crock.

Other than that, I love it just as much as I knew I would. Maybe next year I'll get the second book!
