So I’m cheating on baking a little bit, but when I find a really good cookbook I’m inclined to share! My sister has an undying love for her crockpot, would make every meal in a crockpot if she could. So when I saw this cookbook I immediately thought of her and knew I had to try it!
Obviously my blog is all about the sweet things in life, so I focused in on that in the cookbook, but the whole book is so good! The fact that we are heading into fall which is the perfect time for crockpot recipes also doesn’t hurt either. I’m always a fan of a Martha Stewart cookbook, they are always so well put together and the pictures are so beautiful. This one did not disappoint, the pictures are great and its separated into different sections that make looking for a recipe super easy.
I zeroed in on the dessert section right away and the first thing that caught my eye was the crockpot cheesecake. Never thought of doing a cheesecake in the crockpot? You are not alone, I was puzzled by this as well but their claim that the top wouldn’t crack was to good not to give a try! Anyone else know the frustration of spending time and energy attempting to make the perfect cheesecake only to pull it out and there is a big crack right in the middle!(I feel your pain, trust me) So I set out to prove this cookbook wrong no way a crockpot is better than an oven, right?
Wrong! It was perfect! So to start with this recipe is super simple and the instructions are well written and easy to follow! And the cheesecake even tastes amazing! The indirect heat of the crockpot works wonders on this cheesecake it came out great with no cracks! I personally can’t wait to try all the other recipes in this book, fall is off to a good start!
