Overview

Who’s hungry? EVERYONE. Who has time to cook? NO ONE.

Dig out the slow cooker. Add a second and a third if you wish. Fill one with main-dish fixins and the others with go-alongs. Do it in the morning—or between work and after-school events.

Come home to richly-flavored, ready-to-serve food.

Slow cookers are having a comeback. With good reason. They are friends on a day of running errands. They allow easy entertaining with no last-minute preparation. And vegetarians won’t find a better way to work with dried beans.

Slow cookers are gentle with the food budget—less expensive ingredients flourish in their slow, moist heat.

Fix-It and Forget-It offers the range of recipes slow cookers do well: Appetizers and Snacks, Soups and Stews, Main Dishes (with and without meat), Vegetables and Go-Alongs, Desserts and Beverages.

Bring an element of simplicity—and quality—to your pressured life! Let your slow cooker work for you.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
You might have relegated your slow cooker to the slow lane or, worse, earmarked it for a tag sale, but it's not too late to put it back to work. Slow cookers have made a big comeback recently, and for a good reason -- they are the multitasker's best friend and produce delicious hot meals while you're busy doing something else.

This surprise bestselling cookbook is the slow cooker bible, and one look inside will tell you why. Here are more than 800 tested recipes from slow cooker enthusiasts all over the country. These are not recipes to pull out once a month for show; these are recipes that will work hard for you every day -- recipes for meat loaf, different kinds of chili, pork chops with mushroom sauce, pot roasts, bean dishes galore, and chicken cacciatores, all made in the slow cooker. There are even some surprise slow cooker recipes for rice pudding and holiday wassail drinks. What are you waiting for? It's time to put time on your side. (Ginger Curwen)

    Own the paperback copy. My favorite thing about it is the variety of similar recipes.

    If I want to make beef stew, I can usually find a recipe using what I have in the pantry, without making a trip to the store. I like to try recipes that are submitted by more than 1 cook from different parts of the country, thinking this must be good.

    A So-So Cookbook

    Was a bit disappointed in this cookbook, some errors in spelling and makes you wonder if other errors were made. I have the Fix-It and Enjoy-It Cookbook and really like that one. There were not many recipes in this book that I want to try. I do like to use my Crock Pot, but would recommend other books for recipes.

    Couldn't be easier

    Hundreds of fixable recipes to suit every skill level of cooking. I dare you not to find recipes that will become instant classics with your family..and the house smells so good when you get home after a long day.

    The Best Cookbook I have

    I have over 500 cookbooks and this is the best one of all. I love the quick recipes and the desserts. I made the Cherry Delight and brought it to work. Everyone wanted a copy of the cookbook. I have now picked up 22 copies for friends and to give as gifts. When my son came home from college he looked at it and wanted a copy because he loves crockpot cooking. I highly recommend it to anyone who is busy but still wants to make yummy dinners for their family.
