I love using my slow cooker and it gets a workout at least a couple times a month in the summer, in the winter it's much more often. So I am always on the hunt for new and interesting recipes to try out.
I tried the Moroccan Chicken Baked with Spices, with a couscous side dish.
Man, was it ever good! The chicken fell apart from the bone, so you had to be careful, but with the tomatoes, spices and apricots, it was a nice sweeter flavor. Now don't think it was so sweet, it had 6 onions in it, along

This cook book is a winner! Comfort food with a sophisticated edge. Instructions include the slow cooker method and the stove top method for each recipe. There's a nice introduction that demonstrates preparation techniques, and a section called "The Slow Cooking Pantry" that lists ingredients, by category, used in the recipes, from flavorings to canned and jarred ingredients to sauces and stocks, beans and spices. Recipies I tried were flavorful and not difficult to make.

Full of lots of easy to follow imaginative recipes full of flavour such as Tagines, Texan style pot roasts, vegetables roasts, the Beoif Bourguignon was heavenly: and clear instructions on how to use the slow cooker to cook desserts such as apples wrapped in pastry. Until I bought this excellent book I had not realised it was possible to cook desserts in a slow cooker. There are recipes for every palate. There are also instructions on how to prepare each dish by conventional methods, with an adj ...more

This is a great book with 200 yummy recipes.
It gives step by step instructions for lovely curries, soups, casseroles, risottos, stews, roasts etc etc. Not only is it a slow cook recipe book, but for each recipes it also gives instruction for the hob or oven giving the reader the choice which suits them best.
I cannot wait to try many of these dishes.

The Slow Cook Book features recipes for both slow cookers and more traditional slow cooking methods. There are recipes for soups, stews, casseroles, curries, chilis, pot roasts, and even a few desserts.

This is a really good cookbook. I don't use my slow cooker as much as I should, but this book has encouraged me to use it more often. I love that there are so many delicious sounding recipes to try. I made a number of them so far and each of them has turned out pretty good.

Excellent slow cooker book. This is a major step up from the usual 5 ingredient collections. No processed or packaged food is required to make these meals, and the flavours are complex, balanced and sophisticated. Winners so far for me are the chicken mole and chickpea tomato tagine. The intro also features fantastic photos of how to prepare ingredients and slow cooking theory. Looking forward to trying more of these suppers!

A really good slow cooker recipe book. I made 2 recipes from this book and they both were very good. DK books always feature lots of high quality photos and the instructions for the recipes were easy to understand. There were also instructions given to make the recipe in a traditional way not using the slow cooker. Some of the ethnic recipes featured ingredients that might be difficult to acquire in non urban areas. I would recommend this book for adventures chefs.

This book was interesting, but not very practical for a rural Midwest home cook. There were tons of ingredients I'd have to special-order in, and a LOT of things my kids are not going to eat. I bet some of these recipes would indeed taste good, but the long unusual ingredient lists rule out my trying many of them.

Wonderful cookbook for the cook in a urban area with the opportunity to purchase rare foods and spices. You have to be willing to try new foods and risk expanding the the palliate of your families taste buds. I did find several recipes worth trying and learned alot about the technique of slow cooking.

Fanciest slow cooker cookbook I've ever seen - but everything looks straightforward and simple enough to make! I would totally buy this book. I want to make everything in here.
(Only criticism is that there could be more pictures in here.)

This is a nice beginner cookbook. But it doesn't have anything new or ground breaking. It would be a good gift for a young adult.

I'm making my second dish from the book today. Last week's was the pork roast with butternut squash and it was fantastic! Today is chicken fricassee and it smells great!
