Best of Bridge: The Family Slow Cooker FALL 2016


Best of Bridge is back with an all-new book and an all-new group of ladies.


The Best of Bridge ladies, like so many of you, have fallen in love with slow cookers all over again. Life is getting busier, money is getting tighter, and people aren’t any less hungry! So the satisfaction that comes from assembling a few ingredients early in the day, pushing a button and not having to worry about dinner until it’s time to eat just makes the day feel more manageable.

Whether you’re looking for a hearty stew or a gooey, cheesy dip that will stay warm throughout your party, simply call your slow cooker and these recipes into service — you’ll be glad you did.


Elizabeth Chorney-Booth is a Calgary-based blogger and freelance writer with over 15 years of professional writing under her belt. A former music journalist, Elizabeth now focuses on writing about parenting, lifestyle, local events, entertainment and, of course, food. She appears regularly on CBC.

Sue Duncan grew up in Calgary, cooking and eating at every opportunity with her best friend, Julie. She now lives with her husband and daughter in the Okanagan Valley, where she acquires far too much produce at the farmers’ market but manages to eat it all anyway.
