Most of the recipes involve very little prep work, and you can just sort of throw the ingrediants in and go. Some slow coooker cookbooks have you cook and prepare for 1 1/2 hours before you even start slow cooking- and that sort of defeats the purpose for me. I slow cook because I work a 9 hour day and commute 1 1/2 hours each way. After being gone 12 hours, and getting home late, I can't always cook a full meal. These recipes are so easy I can throw the ingrediants in the slow cooker at 10pm at night and put the slow cooker in the refrigerator overnight. Then, the next morning, I pull the slow cooker out of the fridge, plug it in and go to work. Dinner is ready by the time I get home.
This is a good beginner slow cooker cookbook. It doesn't have anything in it that I would call innovative or groundbreaking, but it's a good place to start. I have some other cookbooks with more unusual recipes in them (for example "Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbook") but I still prefer this one for just your basic slow cooker meal.
