A SALUTE TO Crock-Pot Cookery. Also, here’s a good slow-cooker cookbook, and here’s another.

UPDATE: Reader Duke DeLand writes: “Those who do not own a motor home probably would never know that crock pots are ideal for those of us who travel by motor home. In the morning you place the crock pot, with its contents, in the sink so it won’t tip over and plug it in…..When you finish the day on-the-road your dinner is hot and ready….and the delicious smells from the last couple of hours travel give you all the appetite you need.” I did not know that. But I’ll bet Clarence Thomas did.
