    I needed more info. about times to cook-low and high and amount of liquid to add. These recipes have not answered all my questions.

    I don’t do the cooking in our household and I don’t count carbs or things like that – which explains why most the recipes in this scrumptious book won’t be made in my house.


    My favorite chapter was the 51 pages of meat stews. All of them sound delicious. There is little concession here to eating super-healthy. And gourmands who use only fresh grown ingredients will definitely not like this book. But for those of us who enjoy filling, tasty meals – this book is a slice of Heaven.

    All of the recipes are designed with time and convenience in mind. There are no sophisticated techniques here. Somoe of the recipes are a tiny bit adventurous, like beef, cabbage, potato and rice stew.

    There are seven (!) chapters of soups, chowders and chilis. Some them sound like they would be quite tasty.

    In all, 16 chapters cover meat, poultry, fish and seafood and vegetarian stews, side dishes and other entrees, appetizers, breads and sandwiches and desserts.

    For anyone with a slow-cooker or, as it more commonly known, a crock-pot, this is a recipe paradise. Our crock-pot is used more days than not. Now I guess I just have to do some begging to get one or two of those wonderful beef stews on the menu!

    The book has one small omission: there isn’t a single photo of any of these mouth watering recipes.

    I think that this is a fantastic cookbook! I have loved every recipe that I have tried! None of them are overly complicated. It does use a lot of canned goods but this is probably for convenience (fresh is always an option and can substituted if you know how and have the time). The inclusion of the nutritional information is great because I can use the weight watchers recipe builder to convert these recipes to a point value system. Other small recipe substitutions (like olive oil for the butter/margarine or whole wheat flour for the white flour, whole wheat pasta, etc.) can make for a healthier, more low fat dish. This is a good price on this cookbook becausee I paid $19.95 from a different source. This one is definitely a keeper!

    Lots of recipes, but not as many healthy veggie ones as I expected, and I thought most were a little too complicated. I am not a great cook (to put it nicely) so this book might be perfect for someone more talented than me or who has more time.

    I have several slow cooker books, as I love using my crockpot at least twice a week for the convenience. I was very pleased with this new book.

    It’s organized very nicely, which makes it easy to browse. There’s something for just about everyone in this book.
