Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Book This is a really good slow-cooker recipe book. I like this one because the mels are healthy, easy to prepare, and have some personality to them. I find most slow-cooker recipe books or magazines have the "usual" standard, boring recipes...the recipes in this book are fantastic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cost and time saver! This is the BEST book. It made me drag out my husband's 30 year old orange crock pot and plug it back in! It's low voltage so we save energy instead of using the oven. The cuts of meat are cheap so I'm saving money. I throw the nutritious vegetables in the pot in the morning go off and do chores or shoot baskets with my son and we return in time for dinner and it's ready! I love things that are cost and time efficient. The book is chock full of beautiful photographs. The recipes international ... the thai green chicken curry is delicious ... and it's cheap itself. A great gift for yourself. Your university son/daughter. Your mother. Your husband. A shower gift....I could go on and on. Get one and try it! Oh and if you don't have an old crock pot the new slow cookers are gorgeous and a variety of prices from $18 to $150. Bon appetit.
