Enjoy delicious, multicultural recipes that are less expensive and healthier than fast food. Includes Mexican, Italian, Tex-Mex and Cajun recipes! And one-pot cooking means less mess to clean up! You'll see how easy it is to cook jambalayas, seafood dishes, pastas, "casseroles", soups, rice side dishes, and various vegetable recipes including potatoes, cabbage, and sweet potatoes. "IN A RICE COOKER?" Yes, they're all cooked in a rice cooker. Here are a few recipes from the book: Easy Chili, Mexican Rice, Tex-Mex Pasta, Shrimp Jambalaya, Cabbage Casserole, Cajun Pepper Steak, Chicken Fried Rice, Rice & Shrimp Pilaf, Chicken & Sausage Gumbo, Chicken Fajita Stuffed Potato, Black-eyed Pea & Sausage Soup, Candied Yams with Marshmallows, Easy Smothered Potatoes & Sausage, and Black-eyed Pea & Sausage Jambalaya.

It includes short articles about time-saving tips on food preparation, how a rice cooker knows when the food is cooked, how to teach children to safely cook with a rice cooker, how to brown meat in a rice cooker, plus many more.

This book is packed with great recipies. But you might want to avoid the nook version. No table of contents, no page numbers. "Go to" only has one chapter listed, the hompage. There is no easy way to navagate this book except for your own bookmarks and turning the page. Want to find a chicken recipie? Start clicking the turn page button... This alone makes the nookbook version nearly useless for refrence. Great recipies though. I might pick up the physical copy. I have since deleted this from my library. Please try the sample (which i wish i would have done first) or avoid the nook version altogether.

An ingenious new way of cooking has been discovered by Neal Bertrand. Through the use of a rice cooker he reveals how to create mouth watering meals in minutes. This book is ideal for those who are limited on kitchen space or who are challenged by cooking. Each recipe is easy to put together and requires no advance culinary skills. I was amazed at the overall content of this book. Each recipe was so simple to prepare and produced delicious results. I must admit that all these years I thought a rice cooker was just to be used to cook rice. Now through this one book I have found a quick and easy way to create meals fit for a King. The recipes that I couldn't resist to try included: "Crawfish Boil" Potatoes Cabbage "Casserole" I Candied Yams with Marshmallows There are many unique features about this book. It allows you to experience a true taste of Louisiana cuisine through dishes such as: Crawfish Jambalaya, Crawfish Etouffee, and Cajun Pepper Steak. In addition it provides a helpful resource entitled the well-stocked rice cooker meals pantry that lists the ingredients you will need to have available to make the recipes in the book. Rice Cooker Meals: Fast Home Cooking for Busy People is a must have for anyone who is looking for a fresh new approach to cooking. It offers a wealth of scrumptious recipes that will quickly become some of your all time favorites. This book would make an excellent gift for that special someone who you know deserves a home cooked meal.

This is a great book for learning how to make great-tasting healthy melas with your rice cooker. I saw this book on this site while searching online for rice cooking recipes. After awhile, I decdided to purchase it. I'm glad I did. Like the author himself, I don't care for standing around a stove for long periods of time. Why do that when you can just dump the ingredients into the cooker, press "COOK", and go off to do other things? From front cover to back cover, this book is excellent. In the mood for a jambalya? Then look for the "Black-Eyed Pea and Sausage Jambalya" recpie, or the "Crawfish or Shrimp Jambalya" recipe. If you'd rather have pasta, there's the usual "Spaghetti & Meatballs", or you could try the "Pizza Pastalaya" Other recipes include soups & gumbo, rice side-dishes (my favorite is the mushroom rice), meat, and even vegetables. Also included are useful tipes such as how to make white or brown rice in the cooker, how to brown meat in a rice cooker or skillet (and the pros & cons of each), tips to save time while preparing food, even a list of websites where you can order spices, seaonings, mixes, etc. This book doesn't have as many recipes as larger cookbooks, but it still has a decent variety. And the recipes are easy enough for anyone, from the busy parent, to the beginning cook. Get a rice cooker, get this book, and get cooking!

This was a gift given to me along with a rice cooker, as a house warming gift. It was a great start to learning how to cook. The recipes are very tasty and are also very simple, and easy to follow. They gave me a feel for cooking the same recipes with or without the rice cooker. Careful, some of these recipes can be rich. One thing that the chef should know, is that you may want to buy a non stick type of rice cooker. The recipes that do not have a water base tend to stick to the bottom of the pot, due to high heat. This is a good first cook book. I would recommend this book for a gift or for saving time.
