Can everyone cook? That's a question I've frequently been asked. It seems prepared food marketers have been ultra-successful in convincing many that preparing a meal at home requires a culinary school diploma and a whole lot of time. To me, it's not whether or not you can cook; it's whether or not you have the desire, the confidence and the inspiration. If you have those traits, learning to cook, or improving the cooking skills you already have, can be much easier than you think and a rewarding, taste filled experience.

I'll be honest. I got my slow cooker 7 years ago as a gift, and never used it much. Books I've used (in the past) resulted in unappetizing, dry, bland dishes which was a waste of time and food. I was intrigued with the positive review of this book in our city newspaper this year. I decided to order the book, and have not regretted it since. The author uses the slow cooker properly, and instructions are clear. I love the pictures, the variety of dishes, tips for substitutions and alterations, and the added section on suggested side dishes to accompany the main slow-cooker dishes. I've gone through 1/3 of the recipes so far, and every one of them have been incredibly delicious and flavorful. Thank you for making me love the slow cooker again. I've been suggesting this book to a lot of friends and family with slow cookers. If any one of you are planning to get someone a slow cooker as a gift, this is a wonderful accompaniment. The only mild negative I have to comment on is the binding of the book makes it hard to keep the book open.
