Nearly 60 percent of American households today consist of only one or two people, yet most cookbooks don't reflect this trend, with recipes designed for large families, yielding 6-8 servings. For individuals and small families who want to cook hearty, healthful meals but don't want to deal with all the leftovers, Beth Hensperger has the solution. The James Beard Award--winning author follows up the best-selling Not Your Mother's® Slow Cooker Cookbook with Not Your Mother's® Slow Cooker Recipes for Two, a collection of 125 new recipes specially designed for the small slow cooker. As always, Hensperger's innovative recipes call for fresh, healthful ingredients and continue to prove that the slow cooker can produce amazing meals. While the recipes yield the perfect amount for two or three people, there is no shortage of flavor with dishes such as Quick Hominy and Zucchini Chili, Moroccan-Spiced Tomato Chicken with Almonds, Lamb Stew with Lemon and Garlic, and Vegetable Polenta with Mascarpone Cheese. The slow cooker is an essential countertop appliance for busy cooks, and this is the only book on the market specifically written for the increasingly popular 1 ½- 3 ½-quart slow cooker. Not Your Mother's® Slow Cooker Recipes for Two is great for the growing population of empty-nesters, working couples, singles, and small families who want the convenience of small slow-cooker cooking without sacrificing wholesomeness and flavor.

Lots of info on how to get started. Some of her recipes are vegan or vegetarian, others have meat. Some are traditional American food, and others are from other cultures. If you buy just one slow cooker cookbook for one or two people, I'd pick this one. For one thing, the info on getting started seems the most useful.

I've owned this cook book for a number of years and it is worth owning. The sloppy joe recipe in this book is excellent! It is true (what the other review said) that many of the recipes require preparation time but it is worth it.

For me, a couple of the recipes were overcooked at the end of the cook time. I doubled a recipe for a medium cooker for my large cooker, but it was a little burnt in the end (without adding the additional time they recommend when increasing sizes). It is because of this that I give this cookbook 4 stars instead of 5.

This is a meat focused cookbook with only a couple chapters that have vegitarian dishes. The bean recipes usually call for you to pre-cook the beans, which means it can take almost two days to make the dish.

By far my favourite slow-cooker cookbook author because of the good balance she strikes between nutritional value, ease of preparation, and flavour.
