Product Description

Saving time and money never tasted so good!

Why slave over a hot stove when slow cookers are a great way to cut your kitchen time-and meal budget-without sacrificing taste. Fill your slow cooker with simple ingredients, turn it on, and relax as it does the work for you and fills your home with mouthwatering aromas. Sandra Lee, host of the Emmy-nominated "Semi-Homemade Cooking" on Food Network has added "Sandra's Money Saving Meals" to her television line-up, and her new book, Sandra Lee's Semi-Homemade Money Saving Slow Cooking provides plenty of affordable options that taste like they were made from scratch.

Slow cooking is a great way to turn inexpensive, overlooked cuts of meat into tender, juicy main courses with minimal effort. You will be amazed to learn what you can create in a slow cooker. There is traditional slow cooker fare like chilis, soups, and stews, but the book also includes party foods like Adobo Wings and Red Hot Curry Ribs, before moving on to desserts like Red Velvet and Chocolate Coconut Cake and Caramel Marshmallow Brownies. Plus, there are tons of creative ideas inside, including Crocked Penne with Black Olives and Mushrooms or Beefy Baked Ziti.

  • Offers quick, easy, and affordable dinner options for every taste
  • As always, these recipes follow Sandra Lee's popular Semi-Homemade philosophy using seventy percent ready-made products and thirty percent fresh ingredients

I have several of SAndra Lee's cookbooks and find them all great. The Semi-Homemade Money-Saving Slow Cooking book fits its title. I find it so handy in making meals while I am busy with other things and am still able to present a nurishing, economical meal. This is so important during this particular economic time. Sandra has proved to be a great help with her ideas.

I bought this book because I like the fact that it had pictures for almost every recipe. I am a visual type of person and I like to see the finished product, and this book offered that, so I bought it. I have made some recipes from it already and they seem pretty accurate to the pictures. I am very glad I found this book. I am not a very good cook and this book showed me that I can make more than meat dishes. Who knew you can do desserts in a slow cooker!

I highly recommend this Slow Cook Book to any beginner! I made the beef stew and when I ate it, I felt like I was a GREAT cook! Worth the money!

I got this cookbook because I started working full time and am never home before 8:30pm. To make this short, it's a good cookbook, but the cooking time are too short for what I had in mind. I was hoping for recipes that took 8 to 10 hours and most of these are for only 3 hours or so. But the recipes that I have made have been good. It was worth Amazons price of $13. If I had paid the bookstore price of $20 I would have been mad!

I have a 2 quart crock pot and I bought one for my son, he's leaving the Navy soon and still needs to eat well. The recipes in this book can be adapted to the smaller pot. My example would be the Beefy Cheesy Ravioli, it calls for two jars of pasta sauce along with other things, but I use one and it works well and tastes great. I highly recommend this cook book to anyone with a smaller crock pot.

I enjoy reading through the recipes of Sandra Lee's. I especially like her cookbooks/magazines as they are simple; plus one can create a recipe with what we have in the pantry. All recipes are money-saving and inspirational. It's like gourmet cooking without going to all the expense and labor...plus, fun.

I recently purchased this cookbook looking for some new slow cooker recipes for my family. I made two recipes, the Fiesta Mac'n'Cheese, and the Irish Pub Brisket. The Fiesta Mac'n'Cheese was so disapointing, there was a really weird flavor, I think it was the combination of the shredded beef in BBQ sauce, chili seasoning mix and the mild chiles. The whole dish just tasted off, and my two sons wouldn't eat it at all. The brisket was even worse. The use of pickling spice, beer and horseradish was absolutely disgusting, and with the cabbage created a stink that I am still trying to get out of my house. You know it's going to be bad when your children gag as they walk in the door from school. My husband who will eat just about anything, quickly dumped the potates down the disposal, they were infused by the most disusting, bizzare, bitter flavor. Now I know why Sandra Lee is so thin, there is no way she is eating more than a bite of any of these dishes. There is an entire chapter of desserts including many cakes where you are supposed to make a foil ring and add water to the crock pot and bake a cake in a 8x3 inch round cake pan. Why wouldn't you just use the oven? This is way more work that is necessary for a simple cake. I am very disapointed in this cookbook and I won't be making any more of these recipes. It is not that much more work to chop garlic or onions instead of using frozen onions or canned and the results are so much better. If you are looking for easy and delicious recipes for your family I would recommend Rachael Ray Top 30 30-Minute meals Kid Food.

I really like her shows and everything looks easy. Choose the slow cooker recipe books because it seemed it would be nice to prepare meals simply. The recipes look nice, but just don't turn out tasty. Tried several across the many books I ordered. Each recipe was a disappointment. I was really surprised at that, and disappointed.
