really liked it

The Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook is a great resource for those of us who can't always fix meals in the afternoon. Many people are busy at work and have little time, once they get home at the end of the day, to fix a proper meal.

This cookbook is one option for such people. I don't use the crockpot more than once a week or so, but for those days when a slow-cooked meal is called for, this is a very helpful cookbook.

One of the nice aspects of this volume is that it is, in a sense, a "populist cookbook," based on recipes submitted by people throughout the country.

Some of the recipes that I have used and found satisfying include "Cherry Pork Chops," "Italian Chops" (this recipe could not be simpler--but the outcome is tasty), "Pork Chops and Mushrooms," "Barbecued Pork Ribs," "Chicken in Mushroom Gravy," "Pork Chops in Orange Sauce," "Autumn Pork Chops," "Chicken with Applesauce," "Saucy Apricot Chicken," "Chicken a la Orange," "Elegant Chicken with Gravy," and so on.

Crockpot cooking will not be for everyone. However, for those for whom the crockpot makes sense and serves their needs, this is a very helpful resource and is worth considering for their cookbook library.
