Overview

Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook by Dawn Ranck Hower, Cheryl A. Benner

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.

I bought this book after reading some online reviews and have never been so disappointed in a cookbook. Just about every recipe includes high-sodium, high-fat, junky canned and/or processed food ingredients such as cream of mushroom soup. I simply don't eat that way and wasn't about to start just so that I could use my new slow-cooker. In all fairness, many crockpot cookbooks use these ingredients, I've learned, but this one doesn't even seem to have been put together by an expert. It appears to be a compilation of solicited reader submissions and reminds me very much of a community potluck fundraising cookbook. For instance, there are several recipes titled 'pot roast,' each submitted by a different person and no pictures, not that pictures would have changed my opinion of this book. When I purchase a cookbook, I'm trusting the author to have created or at least tried the recipes in the book and to present the best one. Not the case here. I went in person to my local B&N, returned the book and and sat there with a pile of cookbooks, reading through each to determine which one to buy. By the way, 'Fix it and foget it lightly' wasn't any better. My selection was 'Not your mother's slow cooker cookbook,' which presents recipes using only healthy ingredients that I would actually eat.

I was also disappointed with this book. Although there are a few recipes I would try, there are many recipes I wouldn't. Adding a jar of barbeque sauce or ketchup to chicken and calling it a home cooked meal isn't exactly appealing. Too many repeat recipes. I'm still looking for a good crock- pot recipe book.

If I wanted to spend alot of time preparing sauces and pre-cooking ingredients, I wouldn't be unto Crockery cooking. THANK YOU for giving me recipes with simple ingredients like canned creamed soups that when added to the right main ingredients and perked up with the simple herbs and spices that I keep on hand, make a delicious meal. I can put together a meal in 5 minutes on my way out the door!

For a cookbook with high ratings, I expected much more. I can't find anything I'd want my family to eat here. Lots of soups and prepackaged foods used as ingredients, creating conglomerations my family turns their nose up at. I wanted more good crockpot recipes, along the line of the ones in the tiny cookbook that came with my crockpot. These recipes are not the ones.

I'm so disappointed with this book. It should be called 'Fix it and forget it: with a can of cream soup and velvetta' There are at least 10-15 of the same recipes, just from different people. Almost all the recipes have a can of cream something that is added to it, and half have velvetta in it. I was looking for good recipes that would be hearty and warm for the fall and winter months. Filled with FRESH and tasteful ingredients, and a book that had various recipes. I did not find it in here.

I found this cookbook be very repetitive. How many pot roast recipes do you need? I ended up exchanging this one for the Fix-It and Forget-It Lightly Cookboook.

My husband bought the book to ge some different slow cooking ideas. We then bought it for our son away at college and I just sent one to my parents. Great for people on the go so many fix an forget meals, breakfast, lunch and dinner.

I bought it because it was on the NY Times bestseller list - big mistake. So many recipes call for canned soup, which is convenient but certainly not tasty. I couldn't bring myself to make a single recipe from this book. I gave my copy away. Luckily I got it on sale.
