You cannot go wrong with this book. Many recipes are super simple... you buy five ingredients, throw it in the crockpot and PRESTO CHANG-O RE-ARRANGE-O: YOU HAVE A GREAT MEAL WHEN YOU GET HOME!!!!!!!! I sound corny about this, I know, but you don't know how wonderful it is to do so little and come home to such great, home cooked meals. I hate cooking. I cannot cook. This book is my saving grace. So far my favorite is the Keilbasa Black Bean Soup... hearty, thick, satisfying. Love it!

* If you like to cook (some odd balls find it theraputic???) then this book is not for you. If you like to eat but either do not have the time to cook good meals or cannot cook them for lack of skill, then this book is worth its weight in gold. One thing I love as a Capricorn is something that has value and something that I can use. This book will be in my regular book collection for the rest of my life -- -- I'm sure of it. ;)

This is a great slow cooker cookbook, ESPECIALLY for "beginner" slow cooker chefs. I always feel free to vary the recipes (using more ingredients, usually) but they give be a good start from which to base a meal. Also, we travel A LOT in our 5th Wheel (RV) and this is the ONLY cookbook I bring... After a long day outside, we return to the RV and our nice crock pot. The recipe ingredients are easy to keep on hand (canned goods, frozen, etc) and so I can meal plan two-weeks worth of travel food from this cookbook without having to go back to a store in the meantime.

I was a bit skeptical but I am always looking for simplicity when it comes for dinner so I thought let's give it a try. I hate cooking and quite honestly am not very good at it so crock pot is always my favorite cooking method and 5 ingredients? What could be better!!!!! So far the recipes I have tried have been very tasty. My family really liked the lasagna. I do however sometimes make substitutions. For example when it calls for ground sausage i will usually do ground turkey. But the title says it all 5 recipes and the slow cooker is all you need.

I bought this as a present for a friend who is not a cook. She has to prepare food for her aging parents and I thought this would be perfect for her. Not! Each recipe is way overloaded with sodium Would have killed her parents and certainly not good for anyone else either.

I bought this book after I bought a slow cooker that comes with three different size crock inserts. Every recipe I've tried so far I would rate 4-5 stars. Most ingredients are already in my cupboard or local supermarket. Recipes are fairly true to size and have worked when I have cut them in half. I'm having a lot of fun working my way thru this book.

My wife and I have only tried a few recipies (maybe 5), but most of the ones we have tried we haven't really liked. Most of the recipies are for the 3-4 qt slow cookers and we have a 6 qt. slow cooker. Therefore it is kind of hard trying to make the recipie work without it burning.

This is a very good slow cooker recipe book. The recipes are very easy to follow, and pretty much everything we have made has come out good.
