Frequently Bought Together
This book is gorgeous! It's one of the best looking slow-cooking cookbooks I've come across. I was very excited my library had it so I could preview it in person before purchasing it. There is a huge array of things to make and I love the spiral covered binding - top notch! Ms. Petersen has several pages of tips and hints in the front of the book which I found very helpful even tho I'm a seasoned slow-cooker user. I love that there are color photos throughout the book. It's helpful for me to see the finished product. In a perfect would there would be a photo of everything, but I realize that would drive up the cost of producing such a book. My only qualm, and the reason I gave the book 4 stars instead of 5, is because none of the photos are labeled. Some are very obvious what they are, others I'm not so sure about. Overall, a very nice slow-cooking cookbook!
I have been tough on "so-called" cookbooks that feature a couple of dozen recipes or less. You can't call it a book when you can read through the whole thing in less than a half hour.
Ms. Petersen gives us a legitimate real life full book here. What is more she has taken slow cookers to new heights of cooking. I had no idea you could make breads or cakes in a slow cooker. I honestly learned things here after spending 40 years cooking.
Now this cookbook is VERY BASIC with little cooking skill needed. Now although the recipes are basic, they combine good ingredients that will appeal to most appetites. Most of the ingredients are simply toss in and cook.
It is also a full cookbook featuring recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and desserts. My only problem with the breakfast recipes is that most of them require 2-3 hours of cook time. What mom is going to get up that much earlier than her family to put the breakfast on. On the other hand these recipes definitely work for BRUNCH.
The food photography is better than average featuring pleasant bokeh (this means that the dish is in focus but the background is blurry, it makes for great food photography) My only complaint about this is that there were not nearly enough pics. With e books there is no additional cost to add photos and I encourage her to add more pics to the book. That is another advantage of e books, they can be modified with no cost and improved.
Kudos maam, I am impressed and the .99 cents is highly undervalued. I would have gladly paid $2.99 for the book
Sorry I wasted my 99¢ on the Kindle edition--No chapters, no table of contents. No way to view the recipes except thumbing through one page at a time. Frustrating process beneath Amazon's standards...looks like possibly good recipes but too tedious to look!
This is the best slow-cooker cookbook I have. It has recipies from appetizers to desserts and they are not complicated. I bought this for my three daughters also, as they use their slow-cookers frequently, and they love it and use it as least once a week. Everything I have made has been a success.

Th original form of this book had a Table of Contents and some good recipes. It was clunky to find things but I just bookmarked recipes I liked. The update took The Table of Contents away. There is no way to access a recipe except for paging through the entire book. Makes it quite useless!!

I bought this book for $1, and in terms of helping me understand cooking times and procedures for using a slow cooker, the book will be useful. However, many many of the recipes utilize processed foods such as canned soups, dried spices and commerical mixes, and this is not how I want to eat or cook. I will be seeking out another book that utilizes fresh and unprocessed foods. I think you can still cook simply and easily if you go with fresh ingredients, it just takes more time to plan out your menu and have the food on hand.
