As the popularity of slow cooker cooking has grown, the number of cookbooks on the topic has grown, as well.

Readers will benefit from over 120 fantastic, easy-to-fix recipes that are all beautifully photographed, and include everything from breakfasts and breads to main course and desserts. The recipes are easy enough that anyone can make them, and universal enough to appeal to almost any palate.

My wife and I have been working our way through the recipes in this book, and they've been fabulous. Everything is delicious, and they've also been very easy to make. The recipes are well written and easy to follow, and it's very nice to just put them together and let them cook over a few hours. This is the perfect recipe book for people who like delicious food, but who are constantly on the go.
