  • Recipes are nothing earth shattering

    BUT the instructions for each are pretty easy, and they give helpful hints throughout the cookbook. I've seen a lot of these recipes in other slow cooker books before, but I do like the simplicity of this book. It's great for someone who is a beginner or novice to using a slow cooker. I have not tried any of the dessert recipes, it just does not seem right to cook those in a slow cooker. I did however make my mother the pork chops with apples and sauerkraut (she loves sauerkraut)--it was a hit! As far as the pulled pork recipe, it was nothing exciting. I have a better and easier one than that; but if you're looking for some different recipes to try then this is the cookbook for you.

    Very well written and easy to read and understand. If you are really looking for tasty meals that are easy to prepare and good for you all at the same time, give this book a try. I really like the chapter on Casseroles, as that can be a challenging dish for me to make, the right way. However, the book gives you pinpoint details of how to prepare Casseroles the right way. They have a "soups and stews" section that is really good to read too. I like making and eating soups because they can be more healthy than fried or baked dishes. This book offers some really easy tasty recipes for soup and stews and more. Check it out to be a more healthy eater.

    The Slow Cooker Cookbook has good solid recipes and gears them towards the slow cooker. It’s well put together and will be a favorite whether you are new to slow cookers or use them regularly. It covers the basic information on slow cookers to bring the new up to speed, and provides lots of tips for turning out a great meal.

    Let your imagination take control of your menu! The Slow Cooker Cookbook outlines easy, yet delicious, menus anyone who can turn a dial can make. The cookbook provides the traditional slow cooker meals such as stews but also includes recipes for halibut and risotto, but breads and dips would have been a nice addition as well. In the end, I’m excited to give my slow cooker a new workout!

    The Slow Cooker Cookbook is a good solid collection of recipes, as well as providing some basic information for those new to this type of cooking. I love the slow cooker method, as putting a meal together early in the day and being able to come back to a finished meal is invaluable on busy days, and it makes for easy cleanup! We tried the Shredded Buffalo Chicken recipe yesterday and loved it!

    This book is useful and easy to read, particularly if you are already a little familiar with slow cookers. While not particularly conducive to more varied lifestyles, these recipes can be helpful for those with a 9-5 who also have to put a filling meal on the table for others. Not always healthy, but this book has some great ideas for parties.
  • A Little Effort Serves Hot Meals

    This book offers many wonderful recipes that you’ve never thought could be made in a slow cooker, and that shows how much owning one comes in handy. To have the ability to set it and go for hours at a time, when you’re ready to eat, breakfast, lunch or dinner is served. One of the best inventions ever created, and the author highlights on the background history of this device, the basics, and how to use it well. Overall a great recipe book to add to any collection.

    Using a crockpot is so easy but I was stuck in a rut. I would only use my crockpot for typical meals like a roast or stews. I never even thought about doing dessert or breakfast in it. This book gives a great variety of meals and recipes that I'm excited to try. I only wish there had been photos to accompany some if the recipes.
  • Keep cooking!

    This cookbook has a lot of recipes that would help a new home cook get started, such as BBQ Pulled Pork, Tuna Noodle Casserole and a classic Pot Roast. It’s also got a selection of recipes for fall and winter including a number of soups (the Baked Potato Soup looks yummy, as does the Butternut Squash Soup) and holiday beverages (Wassail, anyone?) Seasoned home cooks might not out of this cookbook, but it could make a great gift, tucked into a crockpot with some cooking staples, like soup beans and broth.
