A lot of moms lean heavily on the slow cooker for weekday meals. It’s particularly appealing when you are out of the house all day, cruising in right around the time your kids are about to start gnawing on the furniture if you don’t get a meal in front of them. Key in using a slow cooker is great recipes. It just so happens that two of my “go-to” magazines for healthy cooking inspiration, Eating Well and Cooking Light, happen to be featuring the slow cooker at the moment. The recipes are a little lighter in fat and meat and heavier in beans and vegetables than is often the case with crock pot cooking. You can find the Eating Well recipes online here and the Cooking Light ones on the newstand.
If you have a favorite slow cooker resource, please share.

    I recommend the Art of the Slow Cooker by Andrew Schloss. I was given this cookbook last year and I love it. Many slow cooker recipes start all tasting the same. This cookbook has great variety, including: Salmon with Herbs, Braised Pork Sirloin, Marrakech Chicken Stew and Tunisian Lamb Tagine. There are also many vegetarian options, too.

    I like The Gourmet Slow-Cooker, which is a Williams-Sonoma book. It’s organized by ethnic foods.
