No doubt that you will find several recipes to your liking. But the drawback is the duplication with 50 different oatmeal recipes and 10- 20 each of roast beef, lamb, pork, ham and meatball and a whopping 92 meatloaf recipes. And that's all before you get to the poultry, soup, vegetable, and sauce sections. Not to mention snacks, cakes and drinks, you will find many simple, slow cooker recipes to suit your tastes.
This slow cooker cookbook serves as a guide as well as a recipe book. The introduction gives a lot of good tips about using a slow cooker to help prepare you for the upcoming recipes. Rather than giving one straight recipe for “oatmeal” it gives you tons of variations so that you always have different options available without having to experiment yourself. This book basically does all the legwork for you when it comes to adding variety to your favorite basic recipes. What I love most about the recipes (and what I look for first before buying any cookbook) is that the ingredients are simple and basic. Most people have the ingredients in their kitchen already, or can easily attain them at the store without having to go to specialty shops for that one “special ingredient.” The spices and herbs are probably already in your cabinet, just the basic items; the foods are simply meats, fruits and vegetables, everything your local grocer carries. So with the basic ingredients paired with the variety of recipes based on favorite dishes, this is really one of the best slow cooker cookbooks you can get. It’s both time and cost efficient for the modern day cook.
Soft cover. 340 pages, clear simple instructions in a good sized font, but no pictures. A good selection of meat, seafood, chicken, vegetable, sauces, drink recipes with a complete chronological index in the front. Good value.
Because I'm used to hard-copy or "real cookbooks", I found it hard to browse effectively. I will not give up, but it may just be a matter of "old dog, new tricks" if you know what I mean. Any tips would be welcome. How can I find breakfast items? What about putting together an entire menu for a dinner? Is it possible to just plug in some ingredients on hand and find a main dish or dessert that matches with those items?
I have been purchasing author Emma Katie's recipe books for over a year and have always found them to be well-written, organized, and filled with some pretty awesome recipes. This one is no different. When the weather cools down, we pull out our slow cooker and I was thrilled to get my hands on this massive collection of slow cooker recipes. There are recipes for breakfast, drinks, main dishes, and desserts. We've made the pepper steak and several of the drink recipes. Excellent book!
