My wife and I have long trusted Cooking Light's delectable recipes, most of which are simple to prepare. We are also big fans of the slow cooker (no, really: It's great to have a volume of 57 slow cooker recipes constructed with the same delicious simplicity that Cooking Light brings to its regular recipes.

Here's a breakdown of contents:

* Essential Slow Cooker
* Meats
* Poultry
* Vegetarian
* Soups & Stews
* Sides & Desserts

From an Maple-Hazelnut Oatmeal (wake up
So I am sooooo excited about my new slow cooker and am still trying to figure out the coolest ways to use it.

This book had a chapter of vegetarian recipes that looked pretty good, but most of the book was dominated by meat recipes. (I guess meat tastes really good when you slow cook it but I wouldn't know!)

I made the veggie red bean stew which was pretty awesome and yummy. Also made the oatmeal - steel cut oatmeal you cook overnight and have warm to greet you in the morning! Definitely going t
I love this book. I barrowed it years ago and made the bean barrito, the barely and cabbage, the caramel cake, the chocolate caramel cake and the shiitake mushroom meatloaf. I think this is the book I made my first potato soup from too. YUM to say the least. I love how good the other recipes in this book look too..So we'll be making the turkey sub sandwiches, the turkey and cherries, and the others I mentioned before again. Get out that cooker for the summer and have fun with this book. We did.
French Beans and Sausage - Love this, will make each winter at least once
Thai Style Pork Stew - quite tasty, would like to make again
Cheesy Spinach Artichoke Dip - tasty, but a bit on the sweet side. Don't know that I'd make this again

Also good, but have in other cookbooks:
Company Pot Roast
Beef Daube Provencal

Still want to try:
Pork Chops & Gravy
Caribbean Seafood Pot
Beef Burgundy
I thought this book was perfect. Exactly what I'm looking for in a weeknight cookbook. My only issue with it is that there are only 57 recipes! I just found out there's another; I'm going to have to get it. If you use your slow cooker a lot, this is a really great book. The recipes are pretty easy, healthy, and appeal to a broad range of tastes (though nothing is too exotic).
The first selection for the Cookbook Club at the Westerville Library!

I tried the Roasted Squash Soup. May have gotten some of the measurements wrong, but it turned out ok. Could have run it through the food processor a couple more times to make it smoother.

Not my favorite, but good!
Soup is my staple during the fall/winter and there are some really good recipes in here. I even made huge batches and canned them for future use.
There are some great everyday recipes in here. What I love most is the caloric info with each recipe!
The recipes are simple to follow and include calorie counts. Soup can be enjoyed any time of year.
Everything I have made out of this book has been EXCELLENT. Timeless.
Yup - another BYU Bookstore bargain!
Lots of good recipes.
