Rated 5 out of 5 by Amanda1969 from Hands Down, best slow cooker cookbook!!! I have the original version of this cookbook, and have owned it for about 3-4 years. I own about 10 slow cooker cookbooks, and this is BY FAR, the very best one, and my "go to". There is a little more prep involved with this book...no question. Meats often need to be browned, and veggies sometimes need to be sauted. But the results you get, for an extra 5 minutes of work are absolutely professional! My favorites are the soup and bean recipes. The herbed lentil soup with goat cheese crostini is the absolute best version of lentil soup I have ever made, and that is with omitting the ham! What is also really great about this book, is that there is an addition of "freshness and crunch" added to many of the recipes, that elevates these dishes to an entirely different level. So, if you don't mind putting in an extra 5-10 minutes into your slow cooker meal prep time, and you want restaurant quality dishes, this is THE slow cooker cookbook to own!Date published: 2015-07-04Rated 5 out of 5 by KenE from Very Nice But..... This is a very nice book and I love it. I use it quite frequently. However, I don't think I am unique in that I use a computer software program for my cookbook. It allows me to search based on what I have in the pantry or refrigerator or by title, etc. So, it would be very nice if we could buy an electronic version of your cookbooks. I can enter them by hand but that is a drag. I entered all my Mother's and Grandmother's. I'm tired of entering them by hand. When I find one in a cookbook that I like, I search the internet for it and then suck it into my software and make changes. lolDate published: 2015-04-19Rated 2 out of 5 by ChrisCWVUPGH from Not Impressed I was disappointed in the lack of variety in this cookbook. I would try another one.Date published: 2012-11-13Rated 5 out of 5 by IvanNYC from Way better than I expected Bought this on the recommendation of a friend and had no idea how great it would be. Brightens up the usual braises with fresh salads and salsas. Really interesting variations on the usual stews, brisket and pork, but best of all, amazing, unexpected seafood recipes. Halfway through the book and not a flop yet. You really need this book if you use a slow cooker.Date published: 2012-03-05Rated 5 out of 5 by NurseTealy from Great for Full Time Working Parents My family has LOVED the recipes in this book. The instructions are easy to follow. It includes recipes that are inexpensive to make as well as ones that are for special occasions that require special ordered meats. The Posole cost about $22 using organic ingredients at my local supermarket and made about 4 quarts of a very hearty stew plus toppings - if the vegetables were in season and I were gardening it would have cost $10. The Chicken Paprika recipe was about $11 with a vegetarian fed/no hormones/no antibiotics/free range chicken. On one of my off days, I cook one recipe in my dutch oven while I cook another in the crock pot overnight. Considering I work 3 12+ hr shifts/wk, I LOVE that just one recipe feeds my family for days.Date published: 2012-01-10
