     Welcome to Stage 2 of the Fix-It and Forget-It brand! After selling more than 11 million copies of her beloved cookbooks, New York Times bestselling author Phyllis Good is launching her first full-color cookbook in the Fix-It and Forget-It series. Fix-It and Forget-It NEW Cookbook is coming October 1! All new recipes, fully tested and perfected for making in the slow cooker. Full color, cover to cover. But the same "I can do this" quality, the same quick and easy promise, and the same marvelous food which will please family and friends alike. 
     1. Phyllis shares her tricks and tips about how to get the most out of any slow cooker when you need it most—for weeknight suppers, during busy weekends, and when serving guests.  
     2. This new book gives you choices—Each chapter includes Basic Recipes for when you have no time to think. And each chapter offers more Challenging Recipes for when you're in the mood to experiment. Choose the ingredients that work best for you. Either make the recipes with convenience foods—or if you steer clear of them, flip to the "Make Your Own Staples" chapter. Find recipes to prepare from-scratch cream soups; hash browns; cornbread mix; beef, chicken, and veggie stocks; dried beans; applesauce and apple butter.  
     3. This new book gives "Good-to-Know Essentials." Answers to FAQs, such as: Which slow cooker is best for me? How hot and fast does my slow cooker cook? Can I keep foods from over-cooking? Does cooking on Low give better results than cooking on High? Simple tricks for cooking more delicate foods in a slow cooker—chicken, pasta, fish, and more. How to wow everyone with slow-cooker desserts. Side dish suggestions for Main Dish recipes. Chart of safe cooking temperatures for meats. 
     4. Phyllis Good's abiding commitment is on every page of this Fix-It and Forget-It NEW Cookbook: "To offer delicious and easy-to-prepare recipes, so that each day you can gather your family and friends together around a table of food. "You can do this, even if your lives are crowded and chaotic and your cooking skills are minimal!"
