To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
What a huge disappointment this book was. It has so much focus on “clean” eating, and not enough focus on foods that are easy to digest. There were almost no usable recipes for us. In fact, we did not use anything f4om this book. Instead, I will give it away. The font was small, and several items were printed in a color that was difficult to read. This is more of a “trendy” book rather than a usable staple in our kitchen. What a shame.
I've only tried one recipe so far, so I don't want to knock the product to much. That said, the food was bland. Reading through the other recipes, I now plan on adding herbs, various peppers, and etc to add flavor in the future. It will be an "idea book for days that I need a set it and forget it meal." If your not a cook and want a book that you can follow the recipe exactly (and turn out tasty), I'd recommend another book.
When I got my slow cooker I had no idea how to cook in it. I was confused with the portions and the timing. This book was a great introduction to cooking healthy delicious food with a slow cooker. The recipes are easy to make and healthy doesn’t mean that the flavor is compromised, it just means that they are low in salt and oils. The recipes give about 8 servings, which is great for families. My favorite recipes were the herbed pork loin with fruit, the salmon ratatouille, the Thai pork with peanut sauce, and risotto with green beans, sweet potatoes and peas. You will feel like a professional chef once you start cooking with this book.
