We live in a fast paced world. We want everything easy and quick especially in preparing delicious meals for our family. But sometimes, going slow can be quite advantageous. Slow cooking is a cooking method that utilizes low heat for an extended period of time. The food prepared using this method will become oh-so-tender and more flavorful. In the past, slow cooking involves putting a pot in the stove over a low fire for several hours. Unfortunately, this leaves room for the homemaker to do anything else since the flame needs constant supervision. If not, the pot may over boil, dry out, and cause a fire if left on for too long even on low. Fortunately, this won't be an issue anymore since the slow cooker has already been invented. The Slow Cooker: The slow cooker, also known as a crockpot, is a special electric pot with a glass lid and inset ceramic bowl. It typically has two temperature settings such as low (180 degrees F to 200 degrees F) and high (280 degrees F to 300 degrees F). It uses indirect heat to cook food in a steady and moderated temperature that doesn't result in food, or worse, house burning even when left on for most of the day. You can turn it on it on the morning before you leave for work and come home to a warm and perfectly cooked dish. You may also turn it on before sleeping at night so you'll get to enjoy a delicious meal as soon as you wake up! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Millian Quinteros.

Book two in the Bad Boyfriends series What does it take to bring a slow simmer to a rolling boil? Sean Rourke is hiding in plain sight as a Bad Boyfriends A-list escort, hoping to dodge the bullet from a few career missteps. Mike Douglas' financial backing and very special negotiating skills have him partnering not-so-silently at Bad Boyfriends, as well as running a training center for athletes and gym rats. Eying each other at a distance is all they've allowed themselves until a joint special project at a seaside retreat in the Hamptons, entertaining a wily Boston attorney, shows them exactly how well they fit together, in more ways than simply business as usual. 1.

Elizabeth Moon is back with the fourth adventure in her bestselling fantasy epic. Moon brilliantly weaves a colorful tapestry of action, betrayal, love, and magic set in a richly imagined world that stands alongside those of such fantasy masters as George R. R. Martin and Robin Hobb. The unthinkable has occurred in the kingdom of Lyonya. The queen of the Elves-known as the Lady-is dead, murdered by former elves twisted by dark powers. Now the Lady's half-elven grandson must heal the mistrust between elf and human before their enemies strike again. Yet as he struggles to make ready for an attack, an even greater threat looms across the Eight Kingdoms. Throughout the north, magic is reappearing after centuries of absence, emerging without warning in family after family-rich and poor alike. In some areas, the religious strictures against magery remain in place, and fanatical followers are stamping out magery by killing whoever displays the merest sign of it-even children. And as unrest spreads, one very determined traitor works to undo any effort at peace-no matter how many lives it costs. With the future hanging in the balance, it is only the dedication of a few resolute heroes who can turn the tides . . . if they can survive. Praise for Limits of Power 'It's easy to become fully immersed in, and absorbed by, the narrative: [Moon's] great strength lies in the patient accumulation of telling detail, yielding an extraordinarily rich picture of the world's politics, philosophy, military structure, history, magic and alien cultures, where men and women stand as equals even in force of arms.'-Kirkus Reviews 'Thoughtful and deeply character driven, full of personal crises as heartbreaking and hopeful as any dramatic invasion . . . Moon deftly avoids big literary explosions, preferring instead a slow boil that builds pressure without relief. There are plots within plots, but the complex story is never confusing. Fantasy fans will be delighted by this impressive foray.'-Publishers Weekly (starred review) Praise for Elizabeth Moon 'This is an excellent series, and Echoes of Betrayal is particularly well done. [Elizabeth Moon is a] consistently entertaining writer, and this book lives up to her standards.'-San Jose Mercury News 'Moon's characters navigate an intricate maze of alliances and rivalries. . . . Close attention to military detail gives the action convincing intensity.'-The Star-Ledger, on Kings of the North 'A triumphant return to the fantasy world she created . . . No one writes fantasy quite like Moon.'-The Miami Herald, on Oath of Fealty
