Here's What's Cooking for Christmas

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
Cookbooks are always the perfect gift for Christmas! It's a gift they will enjoy all year long. 150 Best Dips and Salsas by Judith Finlayson and Jorden Wagman is packed with mouth-watering recipes that are easy to make.
This beautiful softcover book offers unique recipes like Roasted Onion Salsa,  Cilantro Lime Dip, and even Eggplant Caviar, plus recipes for Bagel Chips, Yogurt Flatbread, and Crisp Pita Bread. It's the perfect gift for those who love to entertain!
Busy families will love the Easy Everyday Slow Cooker Recipes book by Donna-Marie Pye! Loaded with 200 scrumptious recipes, this cookbook offers tons of full-color photos. If you have a slow cooker that you don't use often, this book will help you use it to its full potential with tips and techniques that will turn you into a slow cooker champion.
I love tossing everything in the slow cooker and walking away to come back later to a complete meal and this book includes recipes for meals like Steak Fajitas, Pesto Meatball Stew, Steak and Mushroom Pub Pie, Turkey and Cranberry Cobbler, African Lamb Tagine, and even a chapter on slow cooker desserts!

  3. I love slow cooker cookbooks .. I've been using some I have and "converted" them to the pressure cooker that Tupperware has in their upcoming Spring Catalog. Would love to have this one too (you can never have too many cookbooks right??)

  5. I would love to have more ideas for great dips and salsas, especially to have things to make for get-togethers.

  6. I would love to have better ideas for creating different salsas. My brother-in-law has a good recipe he makes. I remember when we first tried it. My husband misunderstood his ingredients and thought he said 20 cloves of garlic. I don't know how he mistook 2 for twenty, but we added the 20 cloves. It was a bit garlicky, but it wasn't too bad. Ha!

  37. These look like two fabulous cookbooks. A slow cooker is a super way to get your family an easy, healthy and delicious evening meal. I also like the way the Dip & Salsa cookbook also included flatbread and chip recipes, etc. That was very clever!
