Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

In today’s fast-paced world, convenience is a key ingredient to any good recipe. With Pillsbury Doughboy Slow-Cooker Recipes—and a little bit of planning ahead—you can serve savory meals that took “hours” to cook and still have time to spend with your family. For success in your kitchen, the Pillsbury Kitchens have double-tested each recipe in various slow cookers. Check out the introduction, which is packed with helpful information, from how to adapt your favorite recipes to food safety and cooking at high altitude. And, with more than sixty mouthwatering color photographs, you can almost smell the wonderful aromas!

There’s a reason these are called “fix-and-forget” recipes. The recipes require minimal, easy preparation, and while you spend the day in class, at work, running errands, or driving carpool, the slow cooker does all the work. When you come home, a bubbling, fragrant, one-pot meal is ready and waiting! And the slow cooker is useful all year round—in the warmer months, this small appliance won’t heat up your entire kitchen the way an oven does.

You’ll find chapters starting with Meaty Main Dishes, like Caramelized Onion Pot Roast, and ending with Very Easy Vegetables and Sides, like family-favorite Au Gratin Potatoes and Onion. In between are Busy-Day Chicken and Turkey, with recipes like Thai Peanut Chicken, which is great for casual entertaining; Super Soups, Stews and Chilies, including Spicy Vegetarian Chili; and Slow-Cooked Sandwiches, like So-Easy Sloppy Joes. With this much variety, you are certain to please everyone in the family.

Each of the 140 easy-to-follow recipes includes a useful sidebar with a tip for serve-with items, suggestions on how the kids can help, or ideas to make it special. Set the table, whip up a fast salad or side dish, if you like, and sit down with your family to a real home-cooked meal. When a hot, hearty meal is what’s needed, Pillsbury Doughboy Slow Cooker Recipes is just the ticket!

This is a good basic starter slow cooker recipe book.
It contains recipes: main meat dishes, chicken and turkey, soups, stews and chilies, sandwiches, vegetables and sides.
Most of the beef recipes require browning in a skillet first or cooking bacon or noodles initially. The vegetable recipes are the usual: black eyed peas baked beans, scalloped corn, etc.
Most recipes are not what I would call `company' fare with the exception of the Mediterranean steak roll which makes a nice presentation.
You do have to search down through the instructions to find the size of slow cooker recommended for the recipe, it certainly would be better to list this at the top with the ingredients. There are some slow cooker hints and a few pictures, but would be a book good for an introduction to slow cooking.

This is an oldie but goodie crock pot cookbook. Most of the receipes are simple to make and no exotic or hard to find ingredients. We especially liked the pork chops with spiced fruit stuffing. They have these tips on the side with the Pillsbury Doughboy that are really helpful too. Like I only had a different kind of dried fruit and the tip said use whatever dried fruit you have and it was delicious. I retired this year and love to cook. The slow cooker is new and fun to me because when I was working I never had time to set it up before work, I barely made it to work some days. If I had only read this book I would have discovered that you can prepare some receipes the night before and then just throw it in the cooker in the morning without thinking and it only takes minutes.

This large cookbook has color photos with some of the recipes. It starts with an introduction that explains basic slower cooker tips (timing, flavor, altitude adjustments, basics, etc.) It has 5 categories:

1. Meaty Main Dishes

2. Busy-Day Chicken and Turkey

3. Super Soups, Stews and Chiles

4. Slow-Cooked Sandwiches

5. Very Easy Vegetables and Sides

Plus it has an index in the back of the book that is helpful.

Some interesting recipes such as "Key West Ribs" that has a citrus flavor and "Thai Peanut Chicken" for something new. There are also favorites like "Bratwurst and Sauerkraut" and "Family Favorite Beef Stew." This cookbook is well worth buying because of the wide variety of recipes.

We love this slow cooker book! Before buying it we borrowed this book from the library and tested out a few recipies. So far everything that we have cooked has turned out great. Many of the recipies use the same spices or ingredients so most things you only have to buy once and have around for future use.
