That’s What I Think (TWIT) Review
Today is a review day of this wonderful cookbook and all that it has to offer. This cookbook helps you party plan using your slow cooker. I personally only pull my slow cooker out for Monday to Friday cooking but there is a raft of ideas to help you out with entertaining!! And how easy is that!!
They have menus for all types of occasions. Great time saving ideas and make ahead tips scattered throughout the cookbook. Menus have been set up to help you with parties from the Super Bowl to the Oscars. All the holidays are covered too!! Recipes for appetizer to dips and fondues to soup, main courses and dessert. Everything is covered in this cookbook for slow cooking.
I decided to try the Bourbon Barbeque Beef Sandwiches that would feed a crowd. Great summer sandwiches where you don’t have to be slaving over the BBQ!! Perfect for Calgary with Stampede coming. These turned out delicious!! With a few salads you are ready for summer entertaining and it CAN be this easy!! ENJOY!!!
