Her latest collection, Fix-It and Forget-It Christmas Cookbook: 600 Slow-Cooker Holiday Recipes, will fill your head with menu ideas, give you gentle guidance with each recipe, and deliver dishes that your friends and family will love.

"Stop your fretting. Put an end to the nightmares. Get out your slow cookers!" Good urges.
"These are 600 stand-out, slow-cooker recipes — all from home cooks from across the country.
"These are 600 manageable, slow-cooker recipes — from cooks who want to feast with their loved ones without being exhausted and frazzled."

"Most of us prepare dozens of meals during the 60 days between early November and early January. Your slow cooker and these recipes can come to your rescue — whether you're making late suppers, family brunches, hot drinks in the afternoon, or scrumptious meals of celebration from Thanksgiving to New Year's."

One More Thing:

I just got into cooking a couple of years ago.  Before that I preferred to eat out because I didn't have time or the confidence to make a meal at home.  Now, I have taken a total 180.  I would much rather spend time perfecting my own meals and now, when we go to a restaurant, I'm like "I could make this better".  So what's my secret?  I turn to what I call my "Cookbooks For Dummies".  The step by step directions are so easy that anyone can make the perfect meal.  The Fix-It and Forget-It Christmas Cookbook has become my bible in the kitchen.  It contains all the recipes you could ever need, for any occasion.  Appetizers, entrees, snacks, deserts, it's all there.  The Holiday Spinach and Artichoke Dip is amazing!  One thing I really love about this book is that you can make little changes and have exactly what you want at that moment.  I made Chicken Tortellini Soup instead of using sausage and it was phenomenal!  I love this book!  It would make the perfect present for the holidays.
