The Faerys View:

I have 3 slow cookers in varying sizes and I've used them for the standard items such as Corn Beef with Cabbage,potato's and carrots and certain cuts of roasts, etc...I like to use my slow cooker(s) for a lot of reasons - The meat comes out so tender, the flavors are infused with which ever herbs and/or spices that are called for in the recipe, knowing that dinner is already done before breakfast has even started and the aroma that fills the house throughout the day. As an RN working 12 hours shifts, I really learned to appreciate the art of slow cooking but never really found a recipe book that was easy to follow yet had fantastic recipes until Slow Cooker 101.

Slow Cooker 101 gave me a lot of really great recipes that were easy to prepare but seemed like I slaved over them (TeeHee - I never correct anyone either :o] )

The really cool thing is that in the beginning of the book it goes through the basics such as all the different herbs, seasonings and flavorings along with common cooking terms, general cooking tips and a basic ingredient list for slow cooking.

With Slow Cooker 101 I found so many unique yet simple recipes that my family loved. The recipes were easy to follow, as were the instructions. There are recipes in Slow Cooker 101 that will be passed down through the generations in my family.

Some of our favorites are Braised Short Ribs, Pork, Artichoke and White Bean Stew and Indonesian Chicken with Zucchini and that's just to name a few.
Oh, I don't want to forget the Ultimate Mac 'n' Cheese!

The Faery says that Slow Cooker 101 sets her wings a' flutter!

Never realized how many slow cooker recipes there were out there! I remember when my parents used to make food in a slow cooker, and I thought it was so old school but I decided to familiarize myself with one again. I bought one because I felt it would help me save money, and as a college student that is always beneficial. This is truly a wonderful and useful recipe book.

What I really appreciated was the variety. Now there are some definite fancy-smancy recipes that I probably will not be trying out any time soon (hello seafood entrees and anything wine-braised), but there are ones that I will be able to tackle. There are many that I was surprised to see, and I genuinely appreciated the inclusion of ethnic recipes.

Great book, and I can't wait to try some of these out.

I recently purchased a slow cooker and have been frustrated with the fact that most of the meals cooked taste exactly the same. The book has been helpful, giving me new imformation, recipes, and ideas to try.

I love my slow cooker! In fact, I have a couple of slow cookers that I use on a regular basis. Who wouldn’t want to come home to a hot and ready home cooked meal any night of the week? The convenience can’t be beat. When I saw this book on Amazon I debated before downloading it. After all, how much more can I learn about using a slow cooker? It turns out I still had some things to learn and some delicious recipes to try.

Slow Cooker 101 is filled with good advice. Some of it is extremely basic. Things like stocking your kitchen with the proper utensils, etc. Then there was advice that was so simple, yet so helpful I had one of those “now, why didn’t I think of that?” moments. For example, the author suggests creating tin foil handles prior to cooking roasts and poultry in order to facilitate removal later. I admit I haven’t tried this tip yet, and I do have to wonder how well it works on a super moist, falling apart roast or chicken but I’m willing to give it a try.

There are plenty of recipes in this book to appeal to a variety of tastes. Even the kids should enjoy the super simple Sloppy Joes and Cheeseburger Joes recipes. Apparently there’s even a way to make Polenta in your slow cooker (who knew?!) Definitely something I’m planning to try.

There are entrees, stews, sauces, dips, puddings, and meats designed to be used for sandwiches, so the recipes are suitable for lunches, casual family suppers and elegant sit-down dinners. As with almost all recipes, there is a certain amount of prep time beforehand, but this can easily be done the night before.

Good but not my favorite. The pictures are awesome but there are a lot of steps involved. Lots of ingredients. I am sure the the soups are great but for a girl with a busy lifestyle these are too time consuming. Would recommend anyway.

I rarely get excited about cookbooks, but this one has me running for my Hamilton Beach 33967 Set 'n Forget 6-Quart Programmable Slow Cooker!

101 Great Recipes is a great slow cooker cookbook. From its Introduction which helps those who are just finding their way around the kitchen, to all the delicious, well seasoned slow cooker recipes which work for all of us!

Commonly found recipes like: Beef Stew, BBQ Pork, Chicken Curry, and Paella, are side by side with Indonesian Chicken, Cioppino, and Irish Lamb Stew.

I liked the international flavors represented in this cookbook, and the colorful photos interspersed throughout the book were a mouth-watering addition.

Each recipe is clearly outlined (generally on one page) with Ingredients, Serving Size, and Directions.

Some recipes do have a lot of ingredients, and some require prep like chopping fresh herbs prior to putting them into the slow cooker, but nothing about this cookbook is what I would consider 'advanced'.

Variations are offered on some recipes like the BBQ Brisket variations which offer up two other recipes that can be made from the basic one. Simple instructions on how to tweak the recipe are given, as well as serving suggestions. Very helpful!

I also liked that these recipes are not geared for a large serving sizes. Most recipes in the book are for 4-6 servings; ideal for most families, but can be doubled if you want more servings.

There's a great deal of attention paid to seasoning each dish in this cookbook. A wonderful surprise!
