~LOVE this cookbook. Everything I have tried is fabulous! Lou Bain
~My husband got your cookbook. I tried your Taco Soup recipe. It was so good I can't wait to try more of your recipes. D. Lejeune, Iota, La.
~ I did the potatoes, green beans and sausage tonight. What a relief to have an easy, quick way to cook good food that is economical and doesn't require a whole lot of dishwashing!  Demetria
~ I made the Pizza Pastalaya tonight.  It turned out great, my husband went back for seconds.

I'm a lousy cook. My kids usually ask me NOT to cook! They say I can blacken anything. I picked up your books (both the rice cooker book and slow cooker book) because I wanted to make life in the kitchen easier and less "blackened" meals! I had made your Chicken Fried Rice from the Rice Cooker Meals and thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm out of rice today so I used spaghetti noodles and added frozen corn. Delicious! I'll be using both ways in the future! Even my pickiest eater liked it! Can't help but like something that makes me look good in the kitchen!

NOTE! All three of my cookbooks are available as Kindle ebooks and paperbacks!

I have been doing book signings/rice cooker demonstrations for years. I love cooking a rice cooker meal in a bookstore. The mouth-watering aroma fills the whole store from front to back. When the customers walk in from outside they look around to see where that wonderful aroma is coming from, and there I am waving to them and offering them a free sample. Once they taste my Blackeyed Pea & Sausage Jambalaya dish, they are hooked, so they have to buy a copy, and since they make a great gift, they buy extra for friends.

  • ~I got your ebook. YUM -  Could cooking be any easier?  Oh - maybe - If I had a maid. :-) Thank you ! Eileen Eisner
  • ~Made the Chinese Stir Fry with ham and loved it!  Definitely want to work my way through Rice Cooker Meals! Elizabeth Broussard

If you like "Cajun Cooking", you will like the recipes in this cookbook ... please note the recipes are developed using the "old style" rice cooker ... the ones I have tried in the "new style" (Sanyo) rice cooker did not turn out well ... less water is required when using the "new style" rice cooker ... I'm still working on a conversion ... the recipes I have tried using the "old style" rice cooker turned out great and were very good ... but the recipes are great even if you decide to cook them in a standard pot using the stove top ...

Most of the dishes call for either sausage or cheese. "1 stick of butter" is also a common ingredient. So if you are watching your weight, you would not add these meals into your regular rotation.

My latest "kick" is rice cookers. I learned you can make entire delicious meals in them, not just cook rice. This cookbook makes rice cooking/entire meals easy. It's mostly a Cajun cookbook but you'll find many delicious other recipes too. I had a question, emailed the author, and he actually emailed me back with the answer!! Recipes are for 8 to 10 cup On/Off/Warm rice cookers, not for fuzzy logic cookers. Rice cooker recipes can be made in the fuzzy logic cookers but adjustments would have to be made. I'm also experimenting using olive oil instead of butter and the author has been helpful with that. I HIGHLY recommend this rice cooker cookbook for On/Off/Warm ricer cookers.

I wasn't sure I'd be able to get the hang of using rice cooker for anything but rice. But as soon as this book arrived I read it from cover to cover and could hardly wait to try his recipes. This book is a little gem. With a little imagination you can easily adjust ingredients to make your recipes more spicy, less spicy, beef instead of chicken, broth instead of canned tomatoes with chiles, less butter, etc. etc. This is a no brainer. To some people it might look too plain but that's fine with me. It's just a good, easy to follow, minimum preparation, delicious collection of recipes, some of which are typical of louisiana cooking....which is what the author himself did not dispute. I have never used as many recipes out of any cookbook I own..and I own a lot!!! I'm currently going through all the recipes but so far my favorites are Shrimp Jambalaya, Black Eyed Peas & Sausage Jambalaya, Tex-Mex Pasta, Chicken fried rice, and Mexican Rice. There are also soup recipes, yams, potato and cabbage recipes but haven't tried these yet. Mr Bertrand I'm anxiously waiting for your next cookbook, if there is one, but in the meantime thanks for this one!

This is a great cookbook for those who like easy, inexpensive ethnic meals in their rice cooker. The book is almost entirely recipes, easy to read, with common, easy to find ingredients as well as recipe suggestions by readers on each recipe for adjustments or substitutions. For those who don't like spicy, just buy the tomato products without chilies, and as for the book not being low fat-it never stated it was a low cal cookbook!

If your looking for more recipes for your rice cooker, this books a bargain at $10.
Recommended-4 stars.

I hesitated before buying this, because I don't really need yet ANOTHER cookbook. But I caved in and purchased it in Kindle format. Of the three recipes I've tried so far, two are definitely keepers (Red Beans & Rice and Cheesy Noodle Goulash). The third might be salvagible (for my tastes) if I leave out the potatoes. The recipes call for readily available ingredients from the cupboard or grocery store (OK, maybe NOT roux mix....I'll have to special order that from Amazon). I do wish that the prepared meals were smaller, since I cook for one and don't want to eat the same thing for a week. I think the target audience will be singles or couples that work long hours and don't want to mess with deciding on dinner every night. The recipes, so far, are very easy to put together (although, I don't quite understand cooking spaghetti & meatballs in the cooker when I can cook it faster on the stovetop.)

The Kindle format for this is what I've come to expect for cookbooks: the pictures are bad on my Kindle but show up very well on my computer. There is a good reference section that you can skip back and forth between the table of contents and individual recipes (you don't have to flip thru the whole cook book to find a particular recipe). All in all, I would recommend this cookbook in general and the Kindle format in particular

Rice Cooker Meals is a small book. However, within its limited number of pages are many good meals, tips, and cooking pointers for the rice cooker owner who is looking to expand on the utility and flexibility of their rick cooker. In all, I would say that its a pretty good value.

Still, Rice Cooker Meals is somewhat limited. Most of the recipes it contains are focused on Cajun-style dishes. For those sensitive to how spicy their foods are, there is plenty of room to accomidate mild to wild tastes. Moreover, the Cajun-style focus is not as limiting as it might first appear since many of the recipies are rice or pasta-based, insuring that they work well with the rice cooker.

While the recipies alone insure that the book is a good value some of the tips and suggestions are real gold. For example, the author makes an excellent case for using the rice cooker to brown meat before using the meat in the core of some of the recipies included. Before I read this I wouldn't have considered the idea. However, I tried it and it works out well. The time and effort saved in clean-up alone made this suggest worth the purchase price of the book alone.
