*Starred Review* Featured review One excellent reason to buy the latest cookbook in prolific food writer Good’s best-selling Fix-It and Forget-It series is that the publisher is giving at least $1 from the sale of each copy to the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade. Consequently, the color pink, which universally denotes awareness of the disease that kills more than 40,000 American women each year, appears on every page. The opening section of this welcoming and brimming volume features recipes and moving stories from women active in the movement. Eloise Caggiano, the program director for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, for example, shares her family recipe for pot roast with gingersnap gravy and talks about how she was diagnosed with the disease at age 33. These early pages also present sobering information, such as the fact that 43 percent of breast-cancer patients skip treatments because they can’t afford them. Good correctly notes that weight gain can increase breast-cancer risk, but that doesn’t preclude put-on-the-pounds ingredients in some of the book’s more than 700 easy slow-cooker recipes. Among the decadent but comforting dishes are seven-layer bars made with sweetened condensed milk. Of course, there are plenty of healthy recipes, from Chunky Vegetable Chili to Autumn Chicken and Veggies, Squash Casserole, and Wild Mushrooms Italian. A thoroughly useful, supportive, good-hearted cookbook. --Karen Springen
