Book Description

28 May 2014
This is a great cookbook with jazzy New Orleans flavour - it's slow cooking Big Easy style! New Orleans has always had a tradition of slow cooking - great dish after great dish from the Creole-Cajun kitchen gets to be that way by spending time over low heat, letting the seasoning and vegetables work magic and the spices do their delightful job. Sisters-in-law Lauren and Patrice are impressive in the way they take this New Orleans tradition, this authenticity, and use modern slow cookers to let busy people enjoy these world-famous flavours. In a While, Crocodile is a collection of more than fifty Southern slow-cooker recipes compiled from a combination of cherished family and proven restaurant recipes.

5.0 out of 5 stars YUM! New Orleans In Your Own Home! 15 Feb 2014
By Dad of Divas - Published on Amazon.com
The women who wrote this cookbook were born and raised in New Orleans. They gathered recipes from friends and family and also invented some on their own. The chapters include: appetizers, soups and stews, entrees, sides, and desserts. All of them use the slow cooker.

As I read each recipe, I found that most recipes required ingredients that could easily be found outside of the New Orleans area. The directions were well written and easy to understand. There are several recipes I will note here that I want to try with my family soon: Charters Cajin Bean and Sausage Soup, Baronne Street Bruscialoni (similar to the Italian version of stuffed steak), Prytania Potatoes, and Blueberry Cobbler.

The recipes in this book are meat based and vegetarian.

If you are searching for a cookbook that is easy to use and bring a flavor of New Orleans into your kitchen and taste buds, I suggest you take a look at this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Slow Cooked Specialties from the Big Easy 17 Feb 2014
By Dee Long - Published on Amazon.com
Cajun-Creole cooking is among the most flavorful, colorful and creative of any ethnic cuisine in America, and authors Patric Keller Kononcheck and Lauren Malone Keller make it possible for you to put your slow cooker to good use, adding many of these specialties to your home menus. Among our favorites in this easy to follow, nicely illustrated cookbook, are the recipes for Jammin' Jambalaya, Crabby Chicken, Mock Turtle Soup and a Muffuletta Mambo Pasta. There's even a recipe for slow cooking Twelfth Night King Cake to make any Mardi Gras celebration complete!

5.0 out of 5 stars great book! 24 Mar 2014

I am cajun and love to cook. I also love collecting cookbooks. I didn't think I would enjoy this particular book as much as we have but its seriously ~ its amazing!

Super easy recipes for days when you don't feel like cooking but still want a good cajun meal. So far I have made the shrimp etouffee (a family fav), the jazzy jambalaya and the crabby chicken salad. The only bad part is there is no leftover after my family of 5 is done eating!

Are there fancier creole recipes? Sure. That's not the point of this book. 5 minutes in the kitchen in the morning and by dinner time you have a great meal without all the fuss.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally a true taste of home... In a Crock Pot!! 24 April 2014
By Ali - Published on Amazon.com
I absolutely love this book! I had been searching for a crock pot cook book with authentic and real New Orleans recipes for a long time, not those cook books who say "Cajun and Creole Cooking" and its really the poor imitations and failed attempts at being New Orleans cuisine. Not to mention all the other ones are chocked full of garbage ingredients and didn't have any photos of how they were supposed to come out, leaving me to guess what it was supposed to look like when it was done. After being stationed overseas with my husband who is in the Army sometimes the voltage difference affects the cooking time, now I know exactly what it is supposed to look like, and to top it all off the recipes are FANTASTIC! Real New Orleans flavor with real ingredients and high quality photos of each recipe. As an addition to this review I cook a lot and primarily cook New Orleans cuisine, which requires a lot of tasting along the way for the flavors to be just right... these authors took all that guess work out of it and all the recipes are perfectly seasoned the first time around. It truly is a fix it and forget it until dinner time cook book. I highly recommend it. Where else can you find Authentic recipes for Jambalaya, Bread Pudding, and Gumbo for a crockpot! Love Love Love it!!
