Usually I buy a several cookbooks every year, but this year I have found that pinterest and blogs have provided me with quite a few great recipes, and I have not bought as many cookbooks. In fact, I think I only purchased two over the past year. One of them is my new favorite fall/winter cookbook, and the other I have not tested out yet.
Update: many of you have emailed asking for a crock pot recommendation. The author's of Slow Cooker Revolution tested many brands, and like the Crock Pot programmable touch screen model (seen above). Amazon has an excellent price on it, click here for link.
My crock pot is made by the Crock Pot brand, but I bought it a long time ago so the model is not made any more. The size seems to be the same as the one above, and it has the time set and high/low/warm function. The ability to set the time to the half hour is key. When the time is over, the crock pot goes to warm, preventing the food from being overcooked.
I like to read cookbooks almost like some people read magazines, so this is making me want to order some cookbooks and get some inspiration!
