It starts off with an Introductory chapter, and a "Tips & Tricks" chapter. Then itis divided intothe five following chapters...

-- VEGETABLES
--CHICKEN, TURKEY & PORK
--BEEF & LAMB
--SEAFOOD
--BREAKFAST & BRUNCH


Each chapter has eight to ten recipes. Each recipe has easy to follow instructions and there are "SLOW COOKER JUMP STARTS" and "TIPS" sprinkled

Who doesn’t love using a slow cooker to make meals? Fresh Flavours for the Slow Cooker provides 77 great new recipes for your to try.

There is a quick intro with “tips and tricks” then the book is divided by chapters that separate the recipes by categories like Breakfast and Brunch, Vegetables and of course specific meats.

Easy to follow, well describe instructions and lots of color photos, which is a must for me with any cook book.

Fresh Flavors for the Slow Cooker by Nicki Sizemore is a recipe book that will help to give you confidence in using a slow cooker.

“Fresh Flavors for the Slow Cooker is not your average cookbook. Author Nicki Sizemore has family-tested these recipes and throughout the book she informs us which ones are the home favorites. The book is sectioned to allow readers to go right to their preferences: Vegetables, Breakfast, Seafood (!), and two meat sections (Chicken/Turkey/Pork and Beef/Lamb). Along the way, the author has dressed up the pages with many full color pictures of her creations.

Ms. Sizemore offers hints and suggestions

This is a great recipe book, and for once everything for a slow cooker isn't sludge! Some of these recipes sound so vibrant and fresh and I can't wait to give them a go.

When I usually use my slow cooker it all ends up tasting pretty same-y, but the recipes that are in this book have me excited to really test what I can do.

I must immediately say this book has mouth watering photos.. and it is not conductive to a Kindle book so please buy the actual book! it starts off as a book you pick up if you have no idea how to use your slow cooker or which kind to use. it also let you know how to freeze and reheat said creations. For me I have failed and succeeded at many a crock pot meal so I chose to skim past all that. the recipes allow for options such as . how to prep the recipe ahead of time and if you

I absolutely love cook books, so I was so excited to receive a copy of Fresh Flavors for the Slow Cooker by Nicki Sizemore. Not only are the pictures great, but the recipes are wonderful. I don't use my slow cooker nearly enough, but I plan to make some of the recipes in this fantastic book over the next couple months.

Fresh Flavors for the Slow Cooker by Nicki Sizemore offers updated recipes as the author was searching for ways to improve slow cooked recipes. Her cookbook is the result. Sizemore writes the slow cooker has become “a weeknight warrior.”

She writes the majority of the recipes found in her cookbook use a 4 to 7-quart slow cooker to prepare the recipes. The recipes will be tagged with both the prep and slow cooker times. Some of the recipes you'll find include:

As someone that only uses their crockpot occasionally I was intrigued by this cookbook and hoped it would inspire me to use it much more often. I really liked this cookbook. It delivered a array of recipes for many different occasions. There are many tips, tricks and short cuts offered which I found to be very helpful and informative. The book feature beautiful photos that had plenty of visual appeal. I really liked that these recipes used so many fresh ingredients as so many of the other ...more

I’m new to using a crock pot or slow cooker, I cook 7 days a week for a family of 4 that includes 2 eighty year olds (my grandparents) - both that have trouble chewing and to different degrees handling utensils. Prior to jumping on the slow cooker bandwagon we had been down to about a dozen meals that they could easily eat and liked. I’ve been able to bring back roasts and other meals that were too unpredictable in an oven but it is a different way of cooking and that’s where Fresh Flavors for ...more

It took me a bit of time to get to this review because I wanted to make a decent sampling of the recipes to be fair about things.

Having now done so I can safely say that this is a fantastic cookbook if you are a slow cooker fan like me. I love nothing more than to have the crockpot up and running before I head out for my day. The only thing that threw a wrench in this? A lot of the things have a similar texture and sometimes taste so they can get pretty boring.

This cookbook is fantastic for a

Anyone who knows me in real life or on Facebook knows that I adore my InstantPot and will proselytize on it’s wonders at the drop of the hat. I am the Kool Aid Man of the electric multicooker. As much as I love my InstantPot, it does not slow cook well, and I would be happy to use my slow cooker more often. I like my kitchen toys. When I saw Nicki Sizemore’s Fresh Flavors for the Slow Cooker: Reinvent the Slow-Cooked Meal offered on Netgally, I was excited to put my slow cooker back in rotation. ...more

Not the same old slow cooker recipes! I love the addition of some side dishes or accompanied dishes that don’t take long but really make each dish a meal. We tried the chicken tikka masala and can’t wait to try a few more! I have a love/hate relationship with my slow cooker so hopefully this book will tilt it more to the love side!

I just love this book I use my slow cooker often because we usually get home so late so I am always on the lookout for new recipes to try. I am incredibly happy and I love this book! I expected to see the normal range of all casseroles and stews but this book is filled with new and inventive meals to enjoy and even includes recipes for sauces and sides. The Overnight Pumpkin-Brown Rice Pudding with crunchy pecans is a healthy and a delicious breakfast.

One of the reasons I love reviewing cookbooks is because it takes me out of my comfort zone and gives me a chance to see if a particular recipe can make me look like a genuine cook, which I am not. I was especially excited about this cookbook as I love using my slow cooker.

I picked Carnitas Tacos for my test recipe. The instructions were detailed and easy to follow. The flavor of the pork was amazing and when topped with the avocado and feta cheese and folded into a corn tortilla, the first bite

I love the convenience of using the slow cooker to have a hot meal ready when we get home after school, work and activities. I jumped at the chance to check out a review copy or "Fresh Flavours for the Slow Cooker". So many slow cooker recipes are along the lines of "put chicken in the crockpot and dump a can of xyz in with it and hit START". This book does not have any of those sort of recipes. The cookbook is full of recipes that use fresh ingredients and many of the recipes have steps that ...more

I have always had a slow cooker since I first got married 34 years ago. Over the years I have pulled it out to use on occasion. But I'll admit, I don't use it as often as I should or could. In going through all my gadgets and appliances, I decided that I needed to start using them more often. So was extremely excited to get a chance to look over this new cookbook,Fresh Flavors for the Slow Cooker by Nicki Sizemore.

Thank you NetGalley and the publisher for the opportunity to read and give an honest review of this book.

Frequently, slow cooker cookbooks are filled with ho-hum recipes. Not this book. The photos are bright and they make the recipes appear mouthwatering!
Along with the slow cooker recipes, the author includes recipes for taste tempting side dishes, homemade breads, and fresh salads, making for a complete meal. This makes the recipes great for company as well as a midweek dinner at home. Included

I was really pleased to get a copy of this book as I find the slow cooker invaluable when I don't have much time.

I was a bit disappointed as I am vegetarian and the vegetarian section of the book seems to have mainly stews and soups, which I was hoping to avoid. I did learn some good tips such as baking sweet potatoes in the slow cooker, which I didn't know was possible!

Sadly I am in the UK and all the measurements for all the ingredients in the book are in American measurements, with no

Fresh Flavors for the Slow Cooker by Nicki Sizemore is a free NetGalley ebook that I read in late September.

Suggestions for slow cooking veg, meat dishes, seafood and breakfast; it has a semi-irregular breakdown of recipes, but okay. It also tips the scales of freshness strongly towards dinner and special-occasion/party recipes from Mexico, India, and Asia against a frequent backdrop of denim and muslin fabric with in-recipe highlight colors of olive green and Nero purple.

Fresh Flavors for the Slow Cooker intrigued me. Considering that most slow cooker recipes are ho-hum and traditionally are repetitive. The book is broken up into five parts: Vegetables, Chicken Turkey and Pork, Beef and Lamb, Seafood, and finally Breakfast and Brunch.
Each recipe out of the 75+ in the book has wonderful instructions and many with explanations. The breakfast section is extremely interesting because the ingredients can be assembled the night before so breakfast is ready in the

A great easy to follow cook book for slow cookers. I had a slow cooker many years ago but I never really used it to it’s full potential. Recently my cooker broke and while awaiting a new one I purchased a new slow cooker to try again. I found this book to be the best one out of the ones I looked at for easy to follow recipes. There are recipes for all types of meat and even fish. I’ve not tried out the salmon recipe yet but will do soon. This book even gives you great tips for example if you’ve ...more
