Award-winning author, Cynthia Graubart shows home cooks how to make the most of their food budget by using a slow cooker in her cookbook, Slow Cooker Double Dinners for Two. These days, life moves faster than ever, but thanks to slow cookers, home cooks can still achieve great tasting food with very little effort. Slow cookers tend to be large enough to prepare food for multiple people, and if it's only you, or you and your partner, you may stray away from this method as a means of not wasting food. That's where Graubart's book come in very handy -- she's devised the genius concept of "double dinners." By using two slow cooker liner bags in a 3.5- to 4-quart slow cooker, she show us how to cook two different meals at once. This concept is perfect for someone who wants to prepare something for dinner, while preparing something to eat the next day, at the same time. It will also put an end to any dinnertime arguments between you and your spouse. You can have one dish, while your spouse enjoys an entirely different one. And, they'll be ready at the same time. Everybody wins.

The hardcover cookbook, which retails for $19.99, will save you time and energy by doing two things at once. This method makes it super easy to take the meals you've cooked, and freeze or refrigerate them to last you all week long. Simply defrost them using your slow cooker or microwave, and you're ready to go!  All of the recipes included in Graubart's cookbook are extremely easy, and don't require any additional steps, like browning meats ahead of time. Additionally, they don't require any supplemental appliances or cookware, such as a stovetop or blender. These are just straightforward recipes that allow home cooks of all skill levels the opportunity to make delicious slow cooker meals. Many of which, stem from the same animal-product base -- such as pork -- but taste completely different when they're done.
