We just got given a slow cooker as a wedding present and I absolutely love it. So far I haven't been too adventurous with it, just a few stews and chili etc so this audio book totally blew my mind as to what is possible in a slow cooker, I had no idea how versatile it was. I cannot wait to try these recipes.
This audio book will definitely motivate you to start using the slow cooker more often. I was almost never using the crockpot but I decided it’s time to try something new and I enjoyed trying new dishes. As the author says I was also inclined to believe that crockpot is for main dishes only but I was surprised to discover a large selection of recipes for soups, side dishes and desserts. The recipes are easy to prepare and very tasty and I would definitely recommend trying the chicken noodle soup and the rice pudding.
With 125 recipes from which to choose, you will have a hard time deciding what to make for dinner. The best thing is, everything from appetizers to condiments are made in a crock pot. Just put everything in in the morning and let it cook while you are at work. A minimum of time is spent getting dinner ready and it should be on the table within minutes. Need to take something to a pot luck dinner or need appetizers to stay hot. Use the crockpot and the recipes in this book for a no fuss experience. The book starts with appetizers and you must try the Buffalo Chicken Dip. The soup and stew chapter is great for winter eating and if I had to choose one of my favorites, it would be the French Onion Soup. My favorite from the beef and lamb chapter is the creamy and delicious slow cooker stroganoff and I had no idea you could cook a glazed ham in a crockpot, but you can and it is delectable. My family went crazy over the Louisiana Gumbo recipe in the seafood chapter and the stuffed manicotti was beyond delicious in the pasta section. There is even a chapter of vegetarian dishes and I love the curried couscous and vegetables. I did not know you could French toast in a crockpot and this one has chocolate chips in it. This is just one of the delicious breakfast recipes and for lunch you should try the roast beef sandwich recipe. I was impressed with the peanut butter fudge and bread pudding recipe in the dessert chapter and I have been making my own ketchup, spaghetti sauce, salsa and taco sauce found in the Sauces and Condiments chapter. You can make just about anything with a crockpot and this book proves it.

I have just recently got married and I am having to cook a lot more than I have ever had to before. I'm not an experienced or confident cook but I am a huge fan of slow cookers, they just work perfectly with my busy schedule so I was super happy to find this audio book which was full of delicious and simple recipes that I cannot wait to try. I have a bunch of old favorites that I always do in the slow cooker but this really opened up my eyes to how versatile a cooking method it is and how much more I can use it.
I really liked the tempo of the narration as it gave me enough time to make notes of the ingredients and method.
