About the author:
Christina Dymock is a graduate of the University of Utah. She has had careers as an editor at an advertising agency, an adjunct instructor at Salt Lake Community College, and author.
An avid cook, Christina divides her time between the kitchen, her computer, and books and her family of six. (Naturally, the family gets the biggest share.) Because she reads everything, she also feels compelled to write in several genres. Her latest book, Blue Christmas, reached the Amazon top seller list in 7 categories as part of the Christmas anthology, Christmas in Snow Valley.
Christina attends multiple writer’s conferences each year, is a part of several critique groups, and enjoys learning about writing. She has been featured during the cooking segment of several local morning shows, published in Woman’s World Magazine and the Deseret News, quoted in Womans’ World Magazine and Parents’ Magazine, published in seven Chicken Soup books, and has published clean romantic fiction under the name Lucy McConnell.


I first read this book on a road trip out loud to a friend.  We both loved the tips above the recipes, the pictures and that anyone can do these recipes.

The first one I made was how she just can defrost and cook frozen hamburger right in the crockpot.  I will do that again.  I like all the fat that was left behind, how easy it was.  Next time I will double the amount of hamburger and freeze it ready for next meal.

Now I want to try some of the soups but it is a little too hot right now for soup.  The carrot soup sounds different I want to try it.

This has a good variety of recipes for chicken, turkey, pork and beef.  It also has some meatless dishes, sides and even desserts.

Another recipe I want to make is mashed cauliflower.

These are healthier recipes with lots of flavor that I would make for my family.

One thing I like when making most of these dishes you don't have to heat up your house with the oven or stove.

I was given The Healthy Family Slow Cooker Cookbook to read and in return I agreed to give a honest review and be part of it's blog tour.
