WIN this Cookbook!

Phyllis Pellman Good, author of the Fix It and Forget It Series, just put out a new cookbook to raise awareness for Breast Cancer. A portion of the proceeds go to the Avon Foundation for Women Breast Cancer Crusade.

I had the good fortune to chat with Phyllis about the project, and about slow-cooking. We talked about why she is thrilled to work with Avon, what we can do if a friend or loved one gets breast cancer… and how to get those raw vegetables to cook better in a slow cooker!
