~LOVE this cookbook. Everything I have tried is fabulous! Lou Bain
~My husband got your cookbook. I tried your Taco Soup recipe. It was so good I can't wait to try more of your recipes. D. Lejeune, Iota, La.
~ I did the potatoes, green beans and sausage tonight. What a relief to have an easy, quick way to cook good food that is economical and doesn't require a whole lot of dishwashing!  Demetria
~ I made the Pizza Pastalaya tonight.  It turned out great, my husband went back for seconds.

I'm a lousy cook. My kids usually ask me NOT to cook! They say I can blacken anything. I picked up your books (both the rice cooker book and slow cooker book) because I wanted to make life in the kitchen easier and less "blackened" meals! I had made your Chicken Fried Rice from the Rice Cooker Meals and thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm out of rice today so I used spaghetti noodles and added frozen corn. Delicious! I'll be using both ways in the future! Even my pickiest eater liked it! Can't help but like something that makes me look good in the kitchen!

From the Author

NOTE! All three of my cookbooks are available as Kindle ebooks and paperbacks!

I have been doing book signings/rice cooker demonstrations for years. I love cooking a rice cooker meal in a bookstore. The mouth-watering aroma fills the whole store from front to back. When the customers walk in from outside they look around to see where that wonderful aroma is coming from, and there I am waving to them and offering them a free sample. Once they taste my Blackeyed Pea & Sausage Jambalaya dish, they are hooked, so they have to buy a copy, and since they make a great gift, they buy extra for friends.

  • ~I got your ebook. YUM -  Could cooking be any easier?  Oh - maybe - If I had a maid. :-) Thank you ! Eileen Eisner
  • ~Made the Chinese Stir Fry with ham and loved it!  Definitely want to work my way through Rice Cooker Meals! Elizabeth Broussard

This book is chock full of one-pot-meals that you can prepare and cook in your Rice Cooker appliance.

It's a poor excuse for a recipe book and a waste of your money.

If you like "Cajun Cooking", you will like the recipes in this cookbook ... please note the recipes are developed using the "old style" rice cooker ... the ones I have tried in the "new style" (Sanyo) rice cooker did not turn out well ... less water is required when using the "new style" rice cooker ... I'm still working on a conversion ... the recipes I have tried using the "old style" rice cooker turned out great and were very good ... but the recipes are great even if you decide to cook them in a standard pot using the stove top ...

Most of the dishes call for either sausage or cheese. "1 stick of butter" is also a common ingredient. So if you are watching your weight, you would not add these meals into your regular rotation.

My latest "kick" is rice cookers. I learned you can make entire delicious meals in them, not just cook rice. This cookbook makes rice cooking/entire meals easy. It's mostly a Cajun cookbook but you'll find many delicious other recipes too. I had a question, emailed the author, and he actually emailed me back with the answer!! Recipes are for 8 to 10 cup On/Off/Warm rice cookers, not for fuzzy logic cookers. Rice cooker recipes can be made in the fuzzy logic cookers but adjustments would have to be made. I'm also experimenting using olive oil instead of butter and the author has been helpful with that. I HIGHLY recommend this rice cooker cookbook for On/Off/Warm ricer cookers.

This is a great cookbook for those who like easy, inexpensive ethnic meals in their rice cooker. The book is almost entirely recipes, easy to read, with common, easy to find ingredients as well as recipe suggestions by readers on each recipe for adjustments or substitutions. For those who don't like spicy, just buy the tomato products without chilies, and as for the book not being low fat-it never stated it was a low cal cookbook!

If your looking for more recipes for your rice cooker, this books a bargain at $10.
Recommended-4 stars.

I wasn't sure I'd be able to get the hang of using rice cooker for anything but rice. But as soon as this book arrived I read it from cover to cover and could hardly wait to try his recipes. This book is a little gem. With a little imagination you can easily adjust ingredients to make your recipes more spicy, less spicy, beef instead of chicken, broth instead of canned tomatoes with chiles, less butter, etc. etc. This is a no brainer. To some people it might look too plain but that's fine with me. It's just a good, easy to follow, minimum preparation, delicious collection of recipes, some of which are typical of louisiana cooking....which is what the author himself did not dispute. I have never used as many recipes out of any cookbook I own..and I own a lot!!! I'm currently going through all the recipes but so far my favorites are Shrimp Jambalaya, Black Eyed Peas & Sausage Jambalaya, Tex-Mex Pasta, Chicken fried rice, and Mexican Rice. There are also soup recipes, yams, potato and cabbage recipes but haven't tried these yet. Mr Bertrand I'm anxiously waiting for your next cookbook, if there is one, but in the meantime thanks for this one!

I love cajun food and this cookbook has alot of great easy recipes. It has quite a few everyday recipes like chili's and spaghetti, too. I use this cookbook more than any other one I own for the ricecooker.

I would not buy this book again. I like to cook from scratch instead of all the processed foods out of BPA lined cans, but it wasn't advertised as healthy recipes, so my mistake. Those who like to use canned soups, velveeta, rotel will like these recipes.

I purchased a rice cooker several years ago while visiting the Konriko Country Store in New Iberia, LA. I used it a few times, then put it away and pretty much forgot about it. This past weekend I was back in New Iberia and saw this cookbook and was intrigued with the idea of using the cooker for something besides rice. After reading a little of the book in the store I purchased it and read all the recipes through. I couldn't wait to get home to try it.

The next day after arriving home, I made the Red Beans and Rice dish, and loved it. The following day I made the Ball Park Casserole for a neighborhood gathering. Needless to say, there was none left. I'm looking forward to trying all the different recipes, and I also intend to buy Neal Bertrand's stainless steel cooker, as I believe the stainless steel is safer to cook with than aluminum.

For anyone who loves spicy food, as I do, you can't go wrong with this book. If you don't own a rice cooker, you could make the recipes in a pot the traditional way.
