Stephanie O’Dea is a New York Times best selling author, award-winning blogger, and a mom of three and she likes shortcuts. A LOT. She shared her number one cooking shortcut in 2008 when she made a New Year’s Resolution to use her Crock-Pot slow cooker everyday for a year. That project turned into her award-winning blog, A Year of Slow Cooking. Here latest book is More Make It Fast, Cook It Slow: 200 Brand New Recipes for Slow Cooker Meals on a Budget.
