“True to its title, offering recipes that can be effortlessly made day after day and are consistent with a low-carb lifestyle. Although there is no doubt this is a cookbook, the surprising amount of useful information it provides for readers who have limited knowledge about how to use a slow cooker and low-carb eating enhances its appeal. This cookbook provides simple and creative ways to prepare a wide variety of food and should be a welcome addition to the cookbook collection of any novice or even more experienced chef.”

Say no more my meat-eatin' bretheren! The Everyday Low Carb Slow Cooker Cookbook was literally the answer to my prayers some months ago. As a mom of two small boys and wife to a very picky man I was having a hard time keeping everybody happy at the dinner table while I watched my weight; the "two-entrée meal" was becoming the norm and it took way too much time. In my high carb days I had used my blessed time saver, the crock pot, regularly but recently it was gathering dust on the top shelf. Thank the Lord I can put it to work again and regain my time/sanity.
Now I have to try a minimum of six recipes before I feel that I can review a cookbook with fairness. The recipes that I have completed from TELCSCC are:
Seafood Crustless Quiche (I didn't miss the crust and neither did they - Fabulous!)
Sausage and White Bean Soup (my dh literally told me it was the best soup ever, bar none)
Chicken with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Artichokes (rich and hearty, a complete meal)
Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic (yes, really!)
Pesto Beef with Grape Tomatoes and Fresh Mozzarella
I think the genius of this cookbook is that the authors recognize that low carb dieters are not only just as busy as everybody else, but also come in a variety of skill levels in the kitchen.Read more ›
I've been on the diet for several years now, so I do use low carb cookbook recipes a LOT and am very careful to follow the instructions. I use my slow cooker weekly and have found better recipes for free on the net and from Dana Carpenter's books (though I haven't seen Dana's new slow cooker book yet).
A few points:
-- the thai-flavored dishes don't taste anything like thai food.
-- only partial carb/nutritional listings are given.
-- spent money getting special ingredients like canned cheese soup, tapioca, red and green thai curries, etc., only for the dishes to be subpar.
-- too many carbs in many dishes.
-- not enough use of herbs/spices to liven up flavors.
FYI - A few other reviewers have said this, but slow cooker temps really do vary by maker and model these days and the cooking times were way off for my newer expensive Rival 5 qt. with the removable crock (recommended by the authors). Everything burns if you don't watch it - which is a common complaint about the new machines when compared to the classics. Times were more accurate after I went out and bought a much cheaper second crockpot (West Bend, I think). Still, the results were just so-so.
I just got this book a week ago but have already tried a handful of recipes. The kicked up French Onion soup is spectacular - rivals any restaurant's version - even includes a crouton on top and still low carb. Being able to roast flavorful chickens and turkey breast without heating up the house (or having to tend to a grill) will be great in the summertime - and it makes great leftovers for the next day's lunch.
The helpful introduction tells you all you need to know about slow cooking and each recipe is written with practicality in mind - no scouring the special foods isles at the store - they have really made it easy. After all, isn't that why you want to use a crock pot in the first place??? My slow cooker is now on my countertop instead of hiding in the back of my cabinet somewhere.

Not a lot of recipes I could eat. I am on the restricted LCHF so I can only have 20 carbs a day and I would have used up over half of those on just one serving of most recipes. Read morePublished 12 days ago by Kathleen
Okay, but I'm a very visual person, and I like pictures. I have used a few recipes from this book, but it is definitely not one of my favorite well used cookbooks.Published 3 months ago by Amazon Customer
At first I was dissappointed there was no photos. Then I started reading the recipes. Already have my first recipe in the crock pot now!Published 4 months ago by Dora Dougherty
