I've read several of Sara's cooking and baking related books and they are all exceptionally well done, as is this one. I was impressed by how she sequenced each recipe's ingredients and instructions in a way that would enable a user to actually use the book while preparing a meal. I also like how she organized the recipes into three main categories; Chicken - Beef - Pork, which also makes the book easier to use. If you are interested in learning more about "slow cooking" you'll enjoy this book. Highly Recommended!

This is another canned, bottled and packaged cookbook. I don't keep things like that in the house. I keep looking for a crock pot book that doesn't use many of those things.

The slow cooker is your best friend in the kitchen, especially when you are a working parent. When I was a working mom, I was always happy to come home to a slow cooked meal as there was little to do but set the table. Also, slow cooking helps tenderize tough cuts of meat while allowing flavors to blend.

Author Sara Winlet has compiled a well-rounded selection of slow cooker recipes that should help prepare many tasting meals ready-to-be served when you arrive home from work after a long day at the job.

Some of the recipes you will find in her cookbook, Working Mom Easy Slow Cooker Meals, include:

Cheesy Chicken
Apple Pork Roast
French Dip Sandwich
Easy Pot Roast

There is an active table of contents making navigation easy.

Recommend.

Buy this book if you just want to eat. Don't buy this book if you want to eat healthy meals.

I think this is definitely a slow cooker recipe book for anyone who likes to throw stuff in their slow cooker and then be off doing whatever. However, I really would not recommend this book to any mums who want to feed their child a nutritious meal. There is a lot of use of "cans of" soup and most of these recipes contain no vegetables whatsoever (I don't count the celery in a can of cream of celery soup as a vegetable).
The description states "We need meals that are nutritious, easy, and delicious." - I have not cooked any of the recipes so can only say they look easy, sound delicious, but are definitely not nutritious. I imagine the sodium content would be about equal to take away meals.

Great, easy to do recipes. Wait till you see what could be for dinner tomorrow night. Yum Yum. Chicken Parmesan easy 10 minutes to the crock pot and 15min. To get noodles cooked and dinner is ready. Roast beef enough to make 3 meals can finish out the work week meals. Sunday lunch or dinner no problem for you and your crock pot. You'll enjoy these family friendly meals. Only cooking for 1 or 2 no problem freeze the left overs.

This is my kind of cook book because meatloaf (all from scratch) is the only dinner that I make. And, truthfully, I'd much rather somebody else do the cooking. The author assures you that these recipes are perfect for the mom who works all day and shouldn't have to come home and cook a meal. For those of us moms who work from home, we shouldn't have to cook dinner either! There are 25 recipes with helpful hints about how to choose the right kind of ingredients. I can't wait to try the Bayou Chicken Pasta!

There's some wonderful recipes in this book. There's even a recipe that only requires 3 ingredients, and sounds delicious! Great book at an even better value.

Gee, I don't understand the 2 star reviews here...maybe these folks had a slow cooker that didn't heat evenly. I had that problem after my 20 year old slow cooker died...bought a new one, and every recipe I tried SUCKED big time. Got a Caliphon for Christmas...voilà! No more ruined meals. Sorry for them and...every meal I tried so far has been terrific. Can't wait to make the Easy Chicken &Dumplings for my Granddaughter (it's her fav at Cracker Barrel). So I wouldn't let the couple of low reviews stop me from getting Sara's GREAT collection of slow cooker meals. Look at the other reviews, and you'll see most of them agree with me. I think I'm trying the Chicken Cordon Blue for Sunday dinner. ENJOY!
