Love it, it's great, delicious, love to eat soup, yum, eat good food, soup is delicious and good for you...

They include a variety of international flavors and use ingredients easily found in larger grocery stores, and most have color photos which is always a plus.
Books and Chocolate
The book is spiral bound so that it lies flat and the pages are glossy, easily wiped in case there's a drip or two.

I love soup and this little cookbook is full of recipes that I will actually make. The recipes are vegetarian (not vegan since cheese and other dairy foods are used) but meat can easily be added if desired.

I made the Potato, Broccoli, and Cheese Soup and enjoyed it. Other soups I look forward to trying include the Cream of Artichoke, Cuban Black Bean and Sweet Potato, Enchilada, Tuscan White Bean with Olive Oil and Rosemary, and Curried Butternut Squash soups. A few use coconut milk and I'm curious about how those will taste as well. There are also some dessert type soups such as Swedish Rhubarb Raspberry and Spiced Apple Pie. I like the convenience of crock pot cooking and the recipes can easily be doubled or tripled to make extra for the freezer.

The recipes are simple so beginners will enjoy them as will more experienced cooks. They include a variety of international flavors and use ingredients easily found in larger grocery stores, and most have color photos which is always a plus. The spiral bound format makes it lay open nicely while in use.

I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicited, nor was a positive review required.

Format: Hardcover-spiral
Have to admit that I'm inordinately fond of subject cookbooks - that is a cookbook focusing on a specific dish such as a dessert cookbook, a salad cookbook or as in this case a soup cookbook. I really like the idea of not having to pore through my cookbook collection if I'm looking for a chicken or vegetable dish, but love to have one book to which I can immediately turn. So, when I saw this soup collection I was delighted and then near cheering when I noted that all the soups are prepared in slow cookers. Many thanks to Lynn Alley for these tempting recipes all in one book!

50 Simple Soups for the Slow Cooker is full of not only recipes but also helpful hints to make preparation easier and quicker - aren't we all on speed dial at mealtime? These are vegetarian/vegan recipes and as tasty as they come! How about Sliced Apple Pie Soup brimming with Granny Smith apples and flavored with cinnamon, cloves and honey? Yes, cool weather is almost upon us, and nothing tastes better on a chilly day than a warm bowl of soup.

It's impossible to pick a favorite from this tasty assortment but do have to give a high five to the Black Bean Chili with Cornbread Crust and the Enchilada Soup.

The book is spiral bound so that it lies flat and the pages are glossy, easily wiped in case there's a drip or two.

So happy to add this book to my collection!

We've made two soups from this cookbook now and both were awful. So disappointing as I was really excited to get the book and the recipes look delicious. We'll keep trying, but don't think you're just going to pick it up and create a wonderful meal.

Not really what I was hoping for, most combinations of soup seem odd... Would not suggest to anyone else to buy this

I really liked the info in the beginning of the book, however, I would have appreciated if the title included the fact that this is VEGETARIAN cookbook. It should be "50 Simple Vegetarian Soups for the Slow Cooker". In addition, I can't eat dairy and a good deal of her recipes have sour cream, butter, half& half or cheese. A bit of a disappointment.

We love most of the recipes we've tried so far, but we have had to modify them. There's an issue with the bean recipes - if you add acid to dried beans before they're cooked, it causes the skins to stay stiff. This cookbook calls for the beans and the tomatoes to be put in at the same time, and the beans in our first recipe never got soft. If you cook the beans first, THEN put the recipe together, the recipes are tasty and easy. We approve.

Very well written and ingredients can be found locally. I heard about this cookbook via an NPR interview with the author and was pleased to find it at Amazon. Good cookbook with yummy recipes for those who like soups and like to minimize their time in the kitchen.
