The Complete Slow Cooker: a paleo cookbook for everyday meals that preps fast and cooks slow, by Karen Frazier

Summer is finally upon us! How will you spend your time? Some like to go on vacation, or stay busy outdoors, with friends and family. Still more folk enjoy a laze-about in the hot, humid days. Whatever your plans are, they most likely do not include slaving away in the kitchen over a hot stove. That’s where Karen Frazier has your back, with her new book The Complete Slow Cooker: a paleo cookbook for everyday meals that preps fast and cooks slow.

If you’re looking for amazing pictures of glorious food, this is not the book for you. Close it and leave quietly. There are no photos, at all. But, if you are willing to look past that, you’ll discover easy recipes made with simple ingredients. The best part is not that this is a “fix it and forget it” book, but instead that most recipes include items in my pantry or already on my shopping list. It’s a relief not to have to buy a one-time-use item which ends up forgotten to molder and on a dusty back shelf. The recipes themselves range from “pretty easy” to “incredibly simple”. The steps are all quick, with prep work pared down to 20 minutes. Then, just set it and walk away.
