    Great & Simple Slow Cooker Recipes

    I'm a (mostly) former carnivore who evolved to eating a Mediterranean diet and I found this book to be the perfect slow cooker book. It's geared towards healthy food but also has some nice meat recipes for my occasion indulgence. All recipes made so far have been delicious.

    Sample is worthless

    18 pages of acknowledgements and how to choose a slow cooker. Nothing at all that gives me clues about actual recipes.

    A Step in the Right Direction

    I bought this ebook as a healthy addition to my slow cooker library. The dishes are nutrition-conscious, heavy on the vegetables, and very tasty! I still have a lot more exploring to do with this cookbook, but I'm enjoying the recipes so far. Older slow cooker recipes relied heavily on ingredients like condensed soup, and soup mix powders--for "convenience." I tend not to use ingredients like that in ordinary cooking; why would I want them in my slow cooker? There are several vegetarian, even vegan, recipes, along with the "requisite" beef, pork and chili recipes, using fresher ingredients than many of the older books. (Some canned ingredients are preferred and called for, like tomatoes and evaporated milk.) Understand that there is real cooking involved here: slicing, chopping, sauteing, browning, etc., not just tossing everything into a crock. But the results are worth it. My biggest problem is that the recipes tend to have high yields, serving 6 to 8. I'm primarily cooking for myself, and although I enjoy leftovers, there's a limit. I would have liked to have seen some smaller dishes, without having to risk halving a recipe and taking a chance on the results. (I can highly recommend Beth Hensperger's "NOT Your Mother's Slow Cooker Recipes for Two" and the others in that series.) Bottom line: I would recommend this book as an addition to your slow cooker library. I don't believe this should be your first cookbook, or your only cookbook, but it's a very nice cookbook! Bon apetit!

    Out of the ordinary!

    I love this recipe book because it spans a wealth of dish types and flavors, yet each one is healthier than your average slow cooker meal. Some of these recipes are downright genius and some are a unique take on something familiar. Great recipe book!

    Good recipes but challenging as Nook Book

    I have made a few items in this cookbook and they have been very good! I gave it three stars because I was disappointed that there were no pictures. It's always inspiring to actually see what the food will look like! The other reason I gave it three stars is that I expected that each recipe would be on one complete page (like cooking magazines do that are made for the Nook) so that I could set it and look at it the entire time I was preparing the dish. Instead many of the recipes start at the bottom of the page and continue on to the next which doesn't make sense when your hands are goopy with food and you have to touch your elelctronic Nook to find out the rest of the recipe. There are a few recipes that you can get on one page but most require turning no matter what size text is used.

    Good recipes!

    This book has many good slow cooker recipes. I especially liked the chapter For Couples which has many main dish recipes for 1.5- and 2-qt slow cookers.
