4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely putting some of these recipes on my menu! November 28, 2011
By Lauren
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
At first glance, I didn't think I was going to like this cookbook... It is fairly small (37 recipes in all), and many of the recipes use a lot of "cream of X" soups and other canned/processed foods. However, there are also several recipes that don't include so many processed foods, and look/sound wonderful! (I also realize that utilizing those canned items is what helps make the recipes quick-and-easy to make, which is what many people need.)

If you open the book at the beginning and start paging through, you won't find the table of contents, because it has been placed at the END of the book (I found this odd). So if you're anything like me, and like to look through the TOC first, you'll need to use the Kindle menu to navigate to the TOC. Not a big problem, just different.

There is a wide variety of recipes, given the smallish size, including a breakfast oatmeal recipe, a couple of beverages, 3 or 4 dips/appetizers, many soups-and-stews, some main dishes, meat sandwich fillings, and a couple of desserts. The recipe for stroganoff sounds great and will probably be the first one I make. I was also happy to see a recipe for Cabbage-Rolls, which is also going on my menu in the near future. (My Dad used to make the best cabbage-rolls in the world, and this is what I grew up calling pigs-in-a-blanket - imagine my surprise when I found out most people use that name for something completely different - sausages wrapped in pancakes!)

All recipes include good, clear instructions and complete ingredient lists. All recipes look very easy to make, and most don't use any hard-to-find ingredients.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great easy and quick recipes. December 7, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought the Kindle version of this book and tried half a dozen recipes. They have all been great and easy as promised. I hate slow cooker recipes that have numerous pre-cooking steps, brown this, saute that, let thicken overnight, etc. Not to mention the recipes with a zillion herbs, spices and assorted ingredients that raise the cost of your "easy" meal astronomically and often lack any real flavor enhancement to your meal. Seriously, do you really think I can taste 1/8 teaspoon of rosemary in a 6 quart chili recipe?

This book is great, if your like me and want recipes that can be prepared in less then 10 minutes, uses ingredients you typically find in every kitchen, clear instructions with cooking times in either Low or High setting. I have cut a number of recipes in half and all have turned out great. I too like the handy crock pot hints after each recipe. I also like that the format is very easy for grocery shopping for ingredients with your iPhone, (using free Kindle App), at the store.

If you fancy yourself a gourmet crock pot chef, an oxymoron in my opinion, then this book is not what your looking for. If you want tasty, simple and practical get this cookbook! You won't be disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slow Cooking (Classic Cookbooklets) December 4, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Yesterday I downloaded this Slow Cooker(Classic Cookbooklets) YEA!
Today, I am buying ingredients to use this cookbook often. These are recipes I had loved and forgotten or new ones to become loved recipes. I am certainly glad I got it as an e-book to have at hand to use for years to come.

This cookbook lost one star from me because it is hard to get the recipe all together. When I was writing my grocery list to buy the ingredients I had to scroll back and forth and make sure I got all of that recipe. The page devides most of the recipes. It could be an easy fix for the authors. They have added cute drawings and slow cooker tips. Each page should have one recipe. Where extra space (Short Recipe like dips) is available the tips and illustrations should go there and not divide the recipes. Even a lone page for one illustration and tip would help. I would like to see that fix made.

HOWEVER: I am going to use these recipes often so it will get to where I know what comes next and this problem will take care of itself.

I had gotten away from using my slow cooker. Now for health reasons I want to start using it again. Also better tasting food. I think this will become one of your favorite cookbooks for great food. ENJOY!

5.0 out of 5 stars Some of my favorite recipes! April 5, 2014
By Melissa
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is one of my favorite go-to cookbooks! I love all of the recipes in this but I must say the "Grandma's Chili" recipe is one of my top five favorites and it's the only way I make it now! It's definitely worth it and highly recommend it

1.0 out of 5 stars Buy a Pig in a Poke . . . March 30, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Once again, these authors do not think it worthwhile to show us a Table of Contents or an Index of the recipes in this book. I guess they think their readers are stupid enough to buy only three things: !) it is a recipe book and 2) it is written by them, and 3) They charge you money for some unknown recipes.

2.0 out of 5 stars good started cookbook February 4, 2014

Format:Kindle Edition
Lots of recipes with cream of mushroom or chicken. This makes things a little on the salty side for me. But very good starter book for parents on the go or college students.
