Introducing: 365 Slow Cooker Suppers Cookbook

I've been working on a new cookbook, and I'm happy to announce that it will be available in bookstores everywhere this September 24.

This was a tough book to write --- it has been a 3 year process to recipe develop and test 365 brand new dinner recipes. A few that appear in the book have been showcased on the site, but my contract stipulates that only 10% of the book content can go online.

And there are PICTURES!!

don't worry. I didn't take them.

Tara Donne, a fabulous food photographer, was in charge, and I just couldn't be any more pleased. The food looks FANTASTIC, but it was all made in a slow cooker (no funny food prep, my directions were followed) and to boot, all the food was photographed using gluten free ingredients, since Tara (and my editor) both just-so-happen to be gluten free.

I think you're really going to like this one. Some of the recipes from the book that you'll recognize are:
Not Your Mother's Meatballs
Matzo Ball Soup
Korean Soft Tacos

But there are tons of others that I'm sure will be a new regular in your meal plan rotation, such as:
Honey-Lime Chicken Soft Tacos
Barbacoa Beef
Snowy Brisket with Baked Sweet Potatoes
Brown Sugar Pork Tenderloin with Mustard
Roasted Grape and Goat Cheese Sweet Potato Bake

I stuck to all main dishes for this book because while it's certainly a ton of fun to make cheesecake and greek yogurt, most people still really need good, solid, tried-and-true dinner recipes.

I've broken the recipes into chapters: Soups & Stews, Beans, Poultry, Beef & Lamb, Pork, Sandwiches, Meatless, and Fish & Seafood. There is also a full index.

Thank you for your support, and for your kindness these past five years. I never, ever, could have imagined that I'd be able to play with my crockpot everyday and consider it work.

Thank you.

I am working with the publicity team at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt to help "get the word out" about this new book. I'm happy to learn that Sam's club and Costco will be stocking copies, but I'm not sure which regions.

If you'd like to help with publicity, I'd love to hear from you --- I am certainly open to any and all ideas! I wish I had the foresight to take a marketing class instead of so much English Lit in school!!

If you are out and about in a place that sells books, it would very much be helpful if you could mention my name and the book title to a manager.

And of course, this book will make an excellent gift to anyone on your Holiday list! If you'd like a signed bookplate, I will send one your way! Just email me.

Thank you again, and happy slow cooking!!

What they say about this article

  1. yay and congrats! I don't have much of a following on my blogs yet, but I will certainly give a write up to this. I have loved the recipes we've used from your site and several have become family favorites. This will be out just a little after my birthday, so I know what I will be asking for :)

  2. Congratulations Miss Stephanie! I have been a follower of yours for some time and will certainly purchase a copy immediately. I will review it on my site and I have no doubt that it will be a glowing review. Much wishes for your continued success!

  3. One suggestion: I have taken to downloading books on the iPad due to the convenience in the kitchen. Will Harcourt offer an ebook format?

    Oh, WOW! Congrats, I hope everyone loves it!

  6. oooh, I hope Costco in Canada will be getting this!

  7. Yahoo!! I pre-ordered a copy from Amazon.

    Look forward to many happy meals.

  8. Hi Stephanie

    Hey, this is great news and I would love to review a copy on my blog as I have done this before. I have sent an email.


  9. Awesome, you just made some of my Christmas shopping easier! Can't wait to see this new book, use your other cookbooks all the time.

  10. Congratulations!! Definitely let us know as soon as it hits the stands. *smile*

  11. I will have to take a look at it when it available. The Honey Lime Chicken Tacos sound good. Saw that you taught a kids class at the Millbrae Library. I have requested that you teach an adult slow cooking class for adults there. I hope you do one soon.

  12. Amazon has the book on kindle too! So excited and happy for you.

  13. Awesome! I can't wait to get my hands on a copy! I'm confident many of your recipes will end up on my weekly menus (as your current website recipes already are!). Congratulations!

  14. Congratulations, Steph! I hope it sells like hotcakes (slow cooked, of course)!

  15. Your new cookbook is going to make great Christmas gifts for my sister-in-law and aunt! And for me too of course!

    I can't wait to try out all the great recipes.

  16. I'm so excited for the gf recipes. I recently had to go gluten-free and it's hard to keep things interesting!

    Hi Stephanie, just a quick observation in my review copy: in the "Meatless" chapter, your recipe for Potato Casserole calls for "4 smoked chicken and apple sausage." This ingredient is not listed as optional. I'm guessing that my favorite meatless sausage (Field Roast Apple Sage) would also work (sadly it is not gluten-free!).

  18. Woo hoo! I have your other two books, and they are both well-worn from much use. Can't wait to have a third!

  19. I'm not a bookseller or a marketting person... just a lowly Mom who loves cooking in the slow cooker. But I will be adding this to my "wish list" and purchasing copies as gifts! Congratulations on the new book.

  20. Congrats on the new cookbook! Can't wait to see it!

  21. Congrats Steph!

    I'm so happy for you and your continued success! You deserve it. You make cooking accessible and fun, which is how I think it should be.

  22. Congratulations on the new book! I will definitely be purchasing- and as soon as I do, I'll be reviewing it on my blog. Good luck with it- I can't wait to see all the new recipes. Only 10% can appear here on the blog? That's a HUGE ratio of new-to-me recipes. Looking forward to it.

  23. Yay! Ive been using your recipes for over a year now. Im going to get a copy of this book for both myself and my in-laws! I hope this book does as well as it deserves!
