Cons: There are recipes that I will never use, including a whole chapter on breakfast and toast. Many of the recipes use unusual ingredients--and a small amount of them--so there is always either a bottle of something in my pantry that I will never use again, or a bunch of partial ingredients that will spoil before I find another recipe for them. But my biggest complaint is that the slow cooker recipes are almost in name only. They require lengthy preparation, such as pre-cooking the meat or vegetables. Some require attention in the middle of the cooking time, followed by an additional 1-2 hours of cooking. And overall they are supposed to be cooked for odd lengths of time. For example, I'm making the slow cooker spaghetti and meatballs today. I would never have enough time in the morning before work to prepare the meatballs (shred zucchini, roll 24 meatballs) or sauce (pre-cook the garlic), so I had to do it last night. But now I'm faced with instructions to cook on low for 4-5 hours. How am I supposed to do that from work? I could use an outlet timer, but then it will sit on my counter for 5 hours either before or after cooking. I was looking for a slow cooker cookbook which would accommodate how I want to use a slow cooker: throw in the ingredients in 5 minutes, leave for 10 hours, and come home to a finished dinner. This cookbook is not that. However, if you are at home during the day and want to make healthy, delicious meals in your slow cooker, then it would be great for you.
