Make It Fast, Cook It Slow is the first cookbook from Stephanie O'Dea, the extremely popular slow cooking blogger: affordable, delicious, nutritious, and gluten-free recipes to delight the entire family.

  • Breakfast Risotto
  • Vietnamese Roast Chicken
  • Tomatoes and Goat Cheese with Balsamic Cranberry Syrup
  • Falafel
  • Philly Cheesesteaks
  • Crème Brulee
--and much more. Make It Fast, Cook It Slow is the perfect cookbook for easy, quick prep, inexpensive ingredients, and meals that taste like you spent hours at the stove.
