The American Heart Association Healthy Slow Cooker Cookbook - Review

I had the pleasure of reviewing a copy of "The American Heart Association Healthy Slow Cooker Cookbook."  The book contains a wide variety of recipes, from Soups to Desserts.  Most of the recipes are fairly straight forward and most use common ingredients.

I made the "Chicken and Bean Soup with Lemon and Basil" earlier this week.  I was actually out that evening and my husband served the soup before I got home.  He didn't know he was supposed to add the lemon zest and basil before serving, so told me the soup was just "ok."  I came home to full bowls of soup on my table.  Before I sat to eat, I added the lemon zest.  (I didn't have fresh basil) It REALLY made a difference in the taste!  There really is nothing like fresh lemon zest!  My son sat on my lap and ate it RIGHT up!  My daughter say how well he was eating it and asked for a new bowl.  My son and I share 3 bowls!!!!  LOL  It was a hit!

I also made the "Coffee Kettle Pot Roast" and it was incredibly delicious!  We ate ALL of it!  Instead of serving it over wheat pasta, we had it will a side of Couscous and we all cleaned our plates....two nights in a row!

With more than 200 easy-to-prep and delicious recipes low in saturated and trans fats, cholesterol, and sodium, HEALTHY SLOW COOKER COOKBOOK offers time-saving tips to make simple, satisfying dishes including:
