I asked to review this book because I thought it was a slow cooker book - well, it's not, though there are a few slow cooker recipes in the book. I also got it because I'm always on the search for a good, easy, new vegetarian recipe.
Well, unfortunately, there's no real "new" recipes here. Most of them are pretty easy, though when the book starts with a complicated recipe, you start to wonder just how much you can "fix it and forget it". All in all, the book falls short on its premise, and falls shorter with the recipes. One of the few slow cooker recipes, for example, is a basic mac & cheese recipe - gee, I've never seen that before (insert sarcasm) - I mean, who really needs a recipe for that?
I think the book would be good for a beginner cook - say, a college student - or someone who either doesn't have access to the internet or doesn't want to print out recipes from the internet.
I received a review copy of this book for free from netgalley in exchange for my honest review.

I thought this would be a slow cooker recipe book, but its not. There are several pasta recipes. There are many recipes in this book that I want to try. An estimation of preparation and cooking times, a clear ingredients list, simply-written instructions and even many suggested variations on a theme.Was this review helpful?
