Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Recipes for Two - A slow cooker cookbook with recipes for smaller, 1.5 to 3.5 quart crock pots.

Finding recipes for a small slow cooker like this one can be a challenge. I have seen it written that that slow cooker recipes are fairly forgiving and cutting a large one in half often proves to be a good solution. However, I also discovered this cookbook, Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Recipes for Two, by Beth Hensperger which contains 125 recipes designed for the popular small slow cookers from 1.5 to 3 quarts in size. It features recipes with quantities to feed one or two people.
