Review

This book...will help you to prepare some truly savoury dishes that are guaranteed to satisfy family members and special guests alike.... I tried the book's heart-healthy recipe for Spicy Lentil and Wild Rice Soup with Caramelized Onions. It was simply stunning. And as with many of the slow cooker recipes, the soup made for fantastic leftovers, too.... Superbly "comforting".... extremely satisfying, just as the title promises. (Cindy Matthews Guelph Mercury 2009-11-21)

From Judith Finlayson, a Toronto writer with five other slow-cooker books to her credit [comes] this beauty. (Favourite Cookbooks of 2009, Montreal Gazette 2009-12-04)

According to Finlayson, every meal stands up in the slow cooker.... Color-coded labels make selecting a recipe easier. Recipes can be designated vegetarian friendly, vegan friendly, can be halved, and/or entertainment worthy. Colored photos, make-ahead suggestions and other tips are scattered throughout. (Julie Gilkay Oshkosh Post Crescent 2009-09-16)

(Julie Gilkay Post-Crescent (WI) 2009-09-16)

This book is packed with recipes for everything from breakfast dishes and snacks to soups, meat dishes, bean-based entrees and desserts... Superbly "comforting" indeed. (Cindy Matthews Waterloo Region Record 2009-11-01)

These recipes could keep a busy family going for quite a while. Although recipes do not include food and nutrition information the author cleverly denotes recipes if they are "vegetarian," "vegan friendly," "entertaining worthy" or can be halved. (Barbara Quinn Tampa Tribune 2010-12-11)

I just checked this book out from the library and am so glad I did not waste any money on it. I can't even pronounce half the names of recipes in this book, I'm sorry but this is not at all my idea of comfort food or slow cooking. Most of the recipes call for skillet pre-cooking and then adding a bunch of new ingredients at the end. I understand browning the sides of a large roast (though honestly I've never found that to improve the end product). But making a meringue for jalapeno corn bread? And cooking said corn bread in a separate pan in the slow cooker????? REALLY???????

This book is RUBBISH!!!
I want comfort food, not gourmet crock!

These recipes taste great and have kids and adults lining up for seconds. The images provided on Amazon are very typical of the recipes throughout the book. While some prep is necessary for most all of the recipes, it is minimal and to be expected as a part of cooking a meal.

The author provides a sidebar of tips that contain helpful ways to minimize cooking and prep time, as well as alternative ingredients that may be fun to try out.

This is not a "dump and go" slow cooker book - surely we all know how to do that without the aid of a cook book. This is a great cook book for those times when you want a really great tasting meal that can be cooked in a slow cooker.
