converting recipes for slow cooker?

mariettapeashoot | Dec 29, 2010 05:59 AM

I have a new slow cooker that I want to make the most of. And so I have two questions for everyone:

1)Recommendations on a good slow cooker cookbook? I love the concept of slow cookers, but often the style of recipes for them doesn't quite appeal...I'm hoping for something a little more foodie/hipster.

2)How can I convert recipes that call for oven roasting to use in slow cooker? I like to think that it's as simple as doing the same recipe, but just putting everything in the slow cooker. But I'd hate to waste a big cut of meat finding out that I'm wrong.

Thanks for the help!
