Recommended Foodie Kindle Books on Sale Today!

I'm attempting to get into looking for deals. Not so much couponing as that's a ton of work, but just being on the lookout for daily deals that might save a few dollars or introduce me to something new for a good price. Thus, I follow a number of blogs dedicated to posting the best deals of the day and I subscribe to a growing number of email lists such as Groupon, Living Social, Keekoo, Zulily, BabySteals, CraftySteals and Amazon's Deal of the Day which send me an email each day with their best sales. I discovered these Kindle books by following the Deals of the Day link from the main page, although I think there was an email earlier this week about Kindle books under $3.99. Two of the three books listed are definitely useful tools in your arsenal of slow cooker books and the third one, which I just picked up today, has some tasty offerings as well as food-related anecdotes. Here are the food-related book deals I recommend:

Make It Fast, Cook It Slow: The Big Book of Everyday Slow Cooking

This was Stephanie O'Dea's first slow cooker book after her blog, A Year of Slow Cooking, went viral in 2008 when she used her crockpot every day for a year. Although her books do not have pictures, they are easy to follow recipes that do not use canned cream of X soup. Most recipes do have pictures on her blog. I've tried a number of them with good results.

More Make It Fast, Cook It Slow: 200 Brand-New, Budget-Friendly, Slow-Cooker Recipes

This was O'Dea's second book which included a few fancier recipes than her first.

In the Kitchen with A Good Appetite: 150 Recipes and Stories About the Food You Love

I just picked this book up today, but already several recipes have caught by eye such as Decadently Bittersweet Chocolate Ice Cream, Buttery Polenta with Parmesan, Easy Stovetop Macaroni, Peas, Bacon and Cheese, and Spiced Chipotle Honey Chicken Breasts with Sweet Potatoes. Each recipe appears to be accompanied by an amusing anecdote. For $3.03, I couldn't refuse.
