Brings the slow cooker into a whole new realm! There are some seriously great recipes in here. And beautifully photographed! Broken down into several categories (breakfast, appetizers, side dishes, main dishes, etc), it's easily navigable when one is wondering what to make for the family. I had to try several! The "cauliflower italiano" was delicious! And I never knew that you could make rice pudding in the slow cooker! There are so many intriguing recipes in this book, it will take a long time to try them all. Challenge accepted!

Regular family dinner gatherings have been proven to achieve positive results in both the health and the general lives of children. But creating a healthy, tasty meal every night is difficult. For this, The Family Table Slow Cooker was born. Comprised of recipes from around the world, the food in this collection is designed to be easy-to-make, simple, and delicious. The brief introduction describes the recipes and philosophy behind this book. It also gives recommendations regarding ingredients and use of your slow cooker. It even provides a brief introduction to the inventor of the slow cooker, Irving Naxon. To those of us who live by our slow cookers, this is the man to whom we owe so much. The recipe categories are divided into: Breakfast Treats Appetizers And Finger Foods Soups, Stews, And Chilis Side Dishes: Pasta, Potatoes, And Rice Side Dishes: Vegetables Main Dishes With Meat Fish And Seafood cat dishes Delicious Desserts Each of the recipes includes a brief introduction and serving sizes. Some also include a tip for variations or substitutions. Most of the recipes do include a picture of the finished item, a few are not a full page pic but all are beautifully photographed. Some of the recipes may surprise, for instance, I had no idea that one could make kabobs in a slow cooker. Since these are supposed to be quick and easy recipes I would’ve been happier if the recipes also included the time required. The recipes may be delicious but I would like to know in advance the time required as far as prep is concerned. Excellent Selection And Variety There are very many recipes that I think would become family favorites in my household. Several of the recipes are classics, but with a slightly different take. It is due to excellent recipe collections like this that makes one want to use more than one slow cooker at the same time. Because there are so many recipes for excellent main dishes, side dishes, desserts etc. more than one will be helpful to make full use of both the book and your device. I was however very disappointed about the lack of an index in the book. There’s nothing worse than finding the perfect recipe only to forget what page it’s on. A good index saves you from searching for it forever. See the full review and the recipe for Herbed Pork Roast at The RecipesNow! Reviews And Recipes Magazine. This review is written in response to a complimentary copy of the book provided by the publisher in hopes of an honest review.

The Family Table Slow Cooker is a cookbook that offers a variety of recipes that can be made in a slow cooker. According to the cookbook's introduction, the author's goal is to give busy families a resource to get healthy meals on the table in minimal time. You get all the ingredients in the slow cooker, go about your day (or night), and it's waiting to nourish you and your family/guests. The 112 recipes cover multiple cultures, dietary/nutrition needs, and offer tips for how to add textures to the meal if so desired. It provides meal ideas and lovely photography for breakfast dishes, snacks, soups, side dishes, main dishes, and desserts. I bookmarked a few recipes I plan to try and it gave me a gentle reminder that the slow cooker can be used for far more foods than the few I associate it with. Thank you to the following for permitting me access to an advance reader's copy (ARC) of The Family Table Slow Cooker: Easy, healthy and delicious recipes for every day. This generosity did not impact my honesty when rating/reviewing.
