Let's have a party! In the past, those simle words might have invoked anxiety, but no more. Thanks to the innovative triple slow cookers now available--one slow cooker with three stoneware vessels--throwing a terrific party just got much easier. This cookbook contains over 100 recipes along with 30 party plans including menus and planning tips. I'll be honest; I don't own a triple slow cooker, just a normal one crock slow cooker. I was still interested to see what kind of recipes it contained. It is an interesting mix. There are party plans/menus for everything from Overnight Guests to Baby Showers, Mother's Day, Italian Dinner, Christmas Evening and many more. Many of the recipes sound scrumptious, and I can't wait to start cooking! Vidalia Onion Dip (only 4 ingredients and still sounds heavenly!), Cuban Pork with Cilantro Mayonnaise, Chicken con Queso and many, many more. Some of the other recipes--well, not so much. I made the Overnight Fruited Oatmeal last night, and it was really bland. It definitely needed something else added to it. The recipe for Queso Dip calls for pepper jack and white american or other processed white cheese, which seems odd considering that actual queso cheese is so widely available nowadays, and is very affordable. Family Mac 'N Cheese actually calls for cheez whiz. Seriously?!? My kids won't even eat that stuff. The Chicken and Mushroom Alfredo Sauce calls for 2 jars of store bought alfredo which seems a shame when it is so quick and easy to whip up a true alfredo. It would have been nice to maybe add the recipe for real alfredo sauce underneath to allow people the choice. Many dishes call for barbecue sauce, but there isn't a single recipe for barbecue sauce in the book--you're just expected to use store-bought. Yes, I realize this is a book to help you throw a party with less work, but it would be nice to have the option of spending 2-5 minutes more and making a better dish if you wanted to. Those issues dropped the rating for this cookbook somewhat. I received a copy of this cookbook from Robert Ross Inc. for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
