Yesterday morning I launched my newest cookbook – Mixing It Slow. Combining your thermo mixer and slow cooker to create delicious family meals has never been easier. Mixing It Slow contains 50 delicious recipes from pies to pastas, to stews and casseroles and even desserts.

Much to my surprise Mixing It Slow sold out within 4 hours. Today I opened up the second print run preorder (and I have less than 80 copies left! I might need to see if I can add some more on to my order at this rate) so if you want to purchase a copy for yourself be sure to jump on the website tomorrow to secure your copy. 

Tonight Im sharing my chilli con carne recipe from the book. This makes for such a great winter meal teamed up with rice, with a Mexican salad, in burritos or over nachos. Its is so very versatile.
