Slow Fast - The Australian Women's Weekly
This clever two-in-one book has lots of recipes to suit your lifestyle. When time is precious, flick through Fast for plenty of quick recipes that won't sacrifice flavour, texture or nutrition – ideal for cooking during the week. We lead such busy lives, especially during the week when it's full-speed ahead with work, school and other activities. With little time left to get food on the table, it's all too easy to go for the quick-fix, takeaway option. These recipes provide fast and easy cooking solutions - from cutlets and salads, to pasta, stir-fries and burgers, they're ready to eat in 40 minutes or less. The key is great food with minimum fuss, so take advantage of store-bought shortcuts for a helping hand. When the hustle and bustle finally winds down, it's time to relax and embrace the slower pace of the weekend.
On weekends when you can relax, flip the book over and thumb through Slow for recipes such as stews and casseroles – those that benefit from a bit of attention and longer cooking times. The slower pace of the weekend brings with it time to relax and enjoy life. And when it comes to getting food on the table, it's the perfect time to cook the recipes that need more attention than usual. They don't have to be complicated or difficult, just a few added steps in the process for marinating or pre-soaking, or simply a longer cooking time. Slow-cooked roasts and vegies are a Sunday favourite, as well as lasagne, risotto and puddings. Take the time to savour your family feast, as all too soon, the weekend hours are over and the hustle and bustle of the week ahead becomes a reality.
Fast or slow, you're going to love this book. Please note - does not specifically have slow cooker recipes, but many of the 'slow' recipes could be adapted to cook in a slow cooker.
