The Family Table Slow Cooker is a cookbook that offers a variety of recipes that can be made in a slow cooker. According to the cookbook's introduction, the author's goal is to give busy families a resource to get healthy meals on the table in minimal time. You get all the ingredients in the slow cooker, go about your day (or night), and it's waiting to nourish you and your family/guests. The 112 recipes cover multiple cultures, dietary/nutrition needs, and offer tips for how to add textures to ...more

Author DeVito accomplishes what is promised on the cover: fairly easy recipes for items (not whole meals) using a slow cooker as the main cooking device. The recipes are beautifully presented with plenty of photographs of the finished items. The food is all very family-friendly with no strange or odd variations to make old recipes look 'new'.

There are roughly 100 recipes broken down into the following sections: Breakfas

If I had to choose between every single gizmo, gadget and small appliance in my kitchen and keep only one, hands down it would be my slow cooker. I have had too many jobs with long and unpredictable hours, so I know that I either set up the slow cooker before leaving for work or I would be picking up take out on the way home. I have a list of go-to recipes, however, some of the ingredients don't really 'scream ' healthy meals. The Family Table Slow Cooker provided me with many new healthy recipe ...more

When you've got a busy day ahead of you, the last thing you want to worry about is getting dinner on the table. If you've got a slow cooker, there's nothing to worry about. Dinner can cook itself, so to speak, while you take care of everything else that needs doing.

I love the convenience of using a slow cooker, so I'm always on the lookout for new recipes to try. The Family Table Slow Cooker is an excellent source for recipe ideas for everything you can think of, and a few things you would never

I was given a copy of this book through Netgalley and the publishers for an honest review.
I absolutely love slow cooking and I think if I had to choose one item to take to a desert island it would be my slow cooker. I have many cookbooks filled with healthy and easy recipes for the slow cooker that I have made time and again for my family for dinner and they love to eat these meals. That said I was very pleased to read and try some of the wonderful and very delicious recipes in The Family Table

And this just helps me get through meal times, usually dinner. So why the The Family Table Slow Cooker? I mean, don't you just chuck everything into the cooker and let it stew? Technically that is still true, but a slow cooker than do more than just stew okay!

One of the recipes that I fancy is the mashed potatoes. Don't laugh, but if you wake up early, chuck the potatoes in the pot and do what it says, by lunch time you would at least get mashed potatoes. All you have to do is grill some sausage

The Family Table Slow Cooker by Dominique DeVito is a free NetGalley ebook that I read in late May.

It's a little off-putting with a repetitive use of the same font (Garamond) and I'm not exactly bowled over by its originality.  There is a bright use of colors in photos of ingredients, finished products, and mood-making photographs (old cars, wheelbarrows, tractors, barns, dogs).  My personal favorite recipes are for banana bread, curried cauliflower, salmon chowder, baked ziti, broccoli rabe, ta

I received an ebook copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for a fair review

We do love our slow cooker in our house, so I'm always on the lookout for new things to try. I've never tried desserts in the slow cooker, and the rice pudding looked especially tasty. That will be my first one. Also the beef short ribs looked amazing. I think that one would make everyone happy too. There are lots of other really nifty recipes in this book. If you are looking to switch up your slow cooker repertoir

This book had me drooling at all the pictures. Some how they even made seafood (which I hate with a passion) look good. The recipes seemed like they would be easy to follow – your food should turn out perfect! I am seriously thinking about buying this book as I eat about 1/2 of what is in it. I have been having to use my slow cooker more often and this will be perfect!

I received this book from netgalley.com for a honest review.

Filled to the brim with easy to follow, beautifully delicious slow cooker recipes. There are many recipes in this collection that I can't wait to try. I am a huge fan of freezer meal prepping, and a lot of the recipes in this book with be perfect for that.

Let me tell you the problem with slow cookers: it might save you cooking time by setting one if you are out for a few hours, but working a twelve hours day with an hour of commuting time can run most recipes that call for a low setting for 8 hours, and the cooking time you saved is now being spent cleaning the slow cooker.

Following that, my problem with the recipes (as with most recipes) lies in the ingredients. There are too many items I can't find at Walmart with too few substitutions. I appre
