I actually bought this by mistake since I don;t own a slow cooker. But I am able to modify some of the recipes.

I found this cookbook in a local gift shop, it was on a clearance table. I lucked out because it is full of amazing recipes and wonderful stories of her family and some history of New England. Stay tuned to my postings there will certainly be a lot from this book. Fresh Fish by Jennifer Trainer Thompson.

I haven’t met anyone who doesn’t like the barefoot contessa, Ina Garten. Did anyone buy her new book, Cooking for Jeffrey?  She’s also has a new cooking show that will be out in May on the FoodNetwork, can’t wait for that.
