Q. Stacey Asks: First, let me say that I LOVE your books – I have them all and cannot wait for the latest one to hit the stands. My brother is a vegetarian so I’ll be picking up one for him as well. I’m a busy mom with 2 small girls (2 & 5) and am finally surrendering myself to the crock pot. As easy as some meals are to prepare, nothing beats the ease and cleanup of a crock pot meal. My question is – do you have a formula to use for making crockpot stews/soups/casseroles? Like I said, I have all your books, but wasn’t sure if your formulas would work for the crock.
A. Fist off Stacey, I loved hearing from you. About soups, stews, casseroles in the new book… Most of the recipes in the book are for on-the-fly weeknight cooking, but if you’re used to the crock-pot I think many of the soups in Cook Without a Book: Meatless Meals could easily be adapted. Best of luck with the crock!
