I have searched far and wide for a slow cook recipe book with some inspirational recipes. They all pretty much cover a small number of fairly basic dishes and, while good in their limited way, don't really inspire you to try something new - which is the fun of cook books. Step forward Make It Fast, Cook It Slow which is by far and away the best slow cooking recipe book I've found so far, albeit with one or two slight limitations in the British market.

I love this concept behind it. Stephanie O'Dea vowed to use her slow cooker every day for a year as a New Year's resolution. I love a bit of quirky when it comes to books. And unlike many recipe books, her character comes over with every page. Each recipe is presented with ingredients, directions and often the verdict of her family - her husband and two small girls. It could be cloyingly sentimental to British eyes - but it isn't. It's light and fun and utterly charming. The instructions are blissfully simple (mostly you are shoving a heap of stuff into the slow cooker and that's it) and although there are no photos, they really aren't needed.

The book is split into:
- Beverages (no, I don't know why all slow cookery books include this. If I want a gingerbread latte, I'm not going to wait three hours for it ... although certain high street chains seem to get close to that!)

- Appetizers
- Breakfast
- Baking
- Side Dishes
-Beans
- Pasta and Casseroles
- Soups and Stews
- Seafood
- Poultry
- Meatless Mains
- Meat
- Take out Fake out (where she recreates take out favourites)
- Snacks and Fondue
- Desserts
- Fun Stuff (incl recycled candles ....

The story of the 'genesis' of this book is as brilliant as the book itself - a New Year resolution made in December 2007 to use the slow cooker every day of 2008 turned into a phenomenally successful blog and ultimately into this book. This story is remarkable, not only because it's tangible evidence of the only New Year resolution I've ever known to have lasted beyond January but because it's a rare example of a spark of an idea growing to something which touches so many people in a profoundly positive way! The recipes vary from staple, everyday classics like shepherd's pie & traditional beef stew to a whole chapter devoted to "Takeout Fake-Out" - replicating takeaway favourites. O'Dea is a refreshingly unapologetic wife and mother with an infectious enthusiasm, her writing style is a delight, one of my favourite quotes being, "There are as many different variations of stew as there are missing Barbie shoes." The recipes are simple and delicious and a great reason to dust off that slow cooker or run out and buy a new one. I can't say I'll be using mine every day but this book certainly given me ample inspiration for at least a weekly outing!

I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to eat healthier, for less money, less time spent slaving over the stove and who likes yummy food. So basically everyone. Have tried about 10 recipes so far and every single one has been fantastic, and this is coming from someone who burnt boiled eggs!!

I have several recipe books for slow cookers and this American book is delightfully different in its selection of recipes. I would thoroughly recommend it for its choices and for the ease of the recipes it contains.
