Early reviews are starting to come in:
I love and use all of Randy’s Graham’s cookbooks and have been looking forward to “Ojai Valley Slow Cooker Cookbook” after trying some of the delicious new recipes. I highly recommend this and all of his cookbooks. Great food for friends and families. Always a popular and appreciated holiday gift too! – Rae H.
I’m not a single mom, but I love this book. Nineteen slow-cooker recipes, many paired with a quick alternative. Brilliant concept! My favorite is Curried Vegetable and Chickpea Stew. And then there’s Alphabet Soup for the kids (of all ages). Even Mikey likes it! – Lol S.
Just made the Sausage, Bean and Spinach soup! It was easy, quick to make and delicious. Love all of Randy’s cookbooks and intend to use them forever. Keep ’em comin’!! – Lynn G.
I am always on the lookout for slow cooker recipes and I was excited to receive my copy of Randy’s new Slow Cooker Cookbook. It’s nice that there are two versions of the recipes…the “nutritious” version and the “quicker” version. Let’s face it, as busy as we are these days, it’s nice to have something that can be put together in a few minutes. I made the Chili Verde (nutritious) for dinner tonight and it was the best I’ve ever eaten. The house smelled so good I could barely wait for it to be finished. An added bonus is that the recipes don’t call for hard-to-find ingredients! I’m looking forward to making more of the recipes this week…next will be Risotto with Barley and then Apple Butter! Thanks for such a great book! – Heather R.
Chef Randy’s latest cookbook in the Ojai Valley Vegetarian Cookbook series is what every person who works hard and doesn’t always have time to cook nutritionally. I have cooked 4 of the 19 “nutritious” meals and enjoyed each one. My favorite so far is the Navy Bean Soup recipe because it is so easy to make and is the freshest, tastiest soup I’ve had in a long time. If you are a single mom, do yourself and your children a favor: buy this book. If you have no children at home but just like to eat healthy and hearty, do yourself (and perhaps your partner) a favor and cook from this book once a week. You won’t be disappointed. – Robin G.
Great recipes for the slow cooker. It includes vegetarian recipes as well as recipes for the same dishes with meat. It also gives a quick version and a nutritious version for each recipe. Very easy to follow, filled with lots of great tips for basic recipes. – Stacy A.
I was so pleased with this Book , Ojai Valley Slow Cooker Cookbook . It is so easy to read and follow recipes and makes it FUN . I really enjoyed the little bits of info and history about the slow cooker. I have to say, the 2 different (quick or nutritious ) options is my favorite part of this cookbook. I look forward to trying all the recipes over time. If I’m in a hurry or have spare time to enjoy the longer recipes , I know I’ll have a yummy recipe that suits my needs . Great Book ! – Pat F.
