This cookbook is exceptionally great for those that love to use a slow cooker and want to learn the basics of Mediterranean cuisine. Each recipe seems to be healthier than the next, and the ingredients are all things you can find at local stores. I found the cooking tips/guidance of Mediterranean style cooking to be very informative. This is a great buy.

No recipes in sample

I don't know who decides the samples contents but a sample of a cookbook without even one recipe is worthless! If its the authors choice then stop being ridiculous. Giving away one recipe won't break you. To the contrary where I'm concerned. You lost a possible sale.

    This book tells you that you can make a lasagna without first boiling the noodles, how to cook soup in the oven, and that your slow cooker can be used for dessert making. Before reading this book, I had no idea how many uses a slow cooker had.  Additionally, I discovered new ways to add healthy grains (like Quinoa) and vegetables into my diet without a lot of fuss.  If purchasing, just make sure you have a big slow cooker because after 4-8 hours of cooking, you don’t want to end up with only a single serving’s worth. 
    Note (disclosure): I did receive this book for free from the publishing company when I was asked to review it, but I will enjoy using it.

    I like the easy of use and the access to the recipes as well as the variety of cuisines that are reflected here -- I can use this quickly and easily and there are no sacrifices in flavor or technique.  A good book to have on your device.

    This would be a good book for anyone looking for exotic Mediterranean recipe ideas to be prepared with their slow cooker for special occasions or everyday heart healthy meals regardless of their diet plan. It provides examples of foods and ingredients to keep around the kitchen for easy preparation of Mediterranean meals.

    The Mediterranean Slow Cooker Cookbook is a nicely writte

    The Mediterranean Slow Cooker Cookbook is a nicely written book that has plenty of recipes to choose from. All the recipes in the cookbook are done in a slow cooker. In the dessert section you use the slow cooker for some things, if not all. The book reminded me of times when my mother would cook something using a slow cooker, and made me remember how easy it is to use one. The book is worth having on your culinary bookshelf..

    The Mediterranean Slow Cooker Cookbook By Salinas Press Slow Coo

    The Mediterranean Slow Cooker Cookbook
    By Salinas Press
    Slow Cooking Takes Time
    The book was well organized and had a nice flow. The book helped me understand that slow cooking is simple but does take a bit of pre planning. Planning ahead and preparing a pantry that is well stocked will make it a bit easier. A few of the key take a ways were: thaw foods first or you run the risk of bacteria growth because foods are not cooking at their optimal temperature, cut foods into similar to balance cooking time, layer items,; place slower cooking items o the bottom. Books suggestion/tip: avoid the temptation to take a peek inside when thing start smelling good. Frequently opening the cooker allows essential moisture to escape, prolongs cooking time and may impact your meals flavor outcome. This is particularly important with Mediterranean recipes.
    The book has 7 chapters of easy to follow recipes: my favorite is the Tiramisu Bread Pudding and the Moroccan Golden Saffron Cake!!! Even though it may take a bit of planning the book is a nice to have in my kitchen library.
