Slow cooker recipes are always the most popular with clients. About 15-20 minutes of preparation time in the morning yields a welcoming aroma when you walk in the door and a nutritious, tasty meal to enjoy with your family at the end of the day. Many of the recipes provided in this book can be easily adjusted/modified to include less fat and sodium for healthier meals. There are many cookbooks out on the market for slow cooker recipes, but Neal does such a good job of focusing on recipes with Cajun “flair” that home cooks in Louisiana (and many other places, for that matter) want to provide for their families!” Quincy L.
