Fabulous -- this book is for everyone!

The recipes will work in many different sized crock pots and serve as few as 2-4 and as many as 20-25. The "Ideal Slow Cooker Size" along with Servings, Prep Time & Cooking Time are listed at the top of each recipe.

I copied approx. 30 recipes from the book including a new one for making ribs in the crock pot (I already do this) and making "Bob's Favorite Chicken" (called something else in the book) in the crock pot (instead of baking it for 3+ hours in

A recipe for every occasion

This book is filled with a huge variety of recipes. The biggest problem is which to choose, as it all looks very yummy. Please keep in mind that this book was written for a US audience, so most measurements are imperial. I have put a conversion table on my fridge to make it easier. The book is suitable for the beginner and the seasoned user alike.

There's so much here, even when our family diets rule out all the recipes with dairy products and those with ready-made food products. Unfortunately, the recipes are also hit-and-miss ... and it's hard to tell until you've made them. Dear book editor: I'd love for you to compile a slightly less big cookbook with the duplicates and duds weeded out.

The recipes I've tried have all turned out great. I don't like how many recipes require browning on the stove or precooking ingredients. While I understand you will get better flavor, to me the whole point of a slow-cooker is to save me time. And precooking does not.

Wow

Yummy recipes, but unfortunately they don't include serving sizes or calories per serving.

Lots of good recipes

Great tips on using a slow cooker well. Many options to convert traditional recipes into slow cooker classics. A great find on the Kindle daily deal.

There were a good number of recipes that have a "cream of X" soup or velveeta cheese. I'd rather use less processed foods.

I am a fan of this series and of slow cooking.

I found a few dozen recipes worth trying, so I am pleased overall. There were several handy tips and tricks sprinkled throughout, but many repeated or even contradicted one another: "When using fresh herbs you may want to experiment with the amounts you use..." vs "Beginner cooks should always measure carefully" vs "Don't be afraid to experiment and make changes in recipes." I enjoyed the recipes I got to try from the first volume of this series, so I'm looking forward to the same quality. It mi ...more

I got this book when I was in college. I thought it would save me. I made 16 recipes from this book and was disappointed in all of them. There are a scant handful of vegetarian recipes. None of the vegetarian recipes were worth writing home about. The majority of the mammoth book contain recipes that follow the Standard American Diet. Almost all the recipes call for processed or canned foods. Not a healthy way to eat.

Since I am not a cook, I would have preferred more general directions about crock pots instead of jumping almost straight into the recipes.

However, there are scattered little tips throughout in light blue boxes.

Still, most of the recipes presumed pre-existing knowledge of terms and techniques.

I finally ended up just scanning the light blue boxes and ignoring the recipes.

Recommends it for: families, busy people, writers,
I love this cookbook and use it often. The recipes are simple, easy to find, and affordable. This is the book I would recommend for families, busy people, and writers. When I have a busy day with a strict writing schedule, this is my go-to cookbook. :-)

If you're going to buy one of the Fix it and Forget it cookbooks, this would be the one. Most of the other books overlap this one.

While I really like her books, it's really diappointing when there's a lot of overlap of recipes.

It's too bad this is a library book, there were tons of good recipes I'd love to try.... And they'd probably be good for leftovers.

The recipes and tips look amazing. There is so much overlap in the recipes,though, I found the number 1400 deceptive. The lemon-barbeque chicken that I tried today was very, very yummy.

Great cookbook. A good variety of recipe choices for the slow cooker. Recipes for all size cookers along with "light" recipes. Love it!

I love this book. I never thought about using soda in my slow cooker but now use it all the time for very juicy meat!
