I have never been a fan of any recipes involving a slow cooker, mainly because the meals never come out tasting freshly made and usually involve opening cans of some type of creamed soup. This cookbook has changed my mind. You put fresh ingredients in and when it's time to serve your meal, it tastes like you've spent a lot more time in the kitchen than you have. It has simplified meals for me as a working mom!
This cookbook is the total package: it has delicious recipes that work, stunning photography, and easy-to-follow instructions. We have busy lives with work and kids and hardly any time for home cooked meals. The author clearly wrote this cookbook for the family on the go!! We can see this wonderful cookbook earning its stains through repeated use.
With the availability of recipes on the internet I don't usually buy cookbooks, but I believe this one is worth it. Most slow cooker recipes end up calling for processed ingredients. It's nice having a collection of recipes that are simple and tasty and turn out well as written with no adjustments. At this point I've only made a few of the recipes, but so far they've been great and I'm looking forward to trying the rest.
