The lower scored review isn't for the recipes themselves, but based on the format of the book itself. I purchased this book because I have tried a few recipes from Stephanie's blog over the last few years and liked them. I make freezer meals for my slow cooker monthly and have been doing this for two years now. I usually make my own menus and modify recipes myself, but going back to school I wanted some tried and true recipes so I could stock the freezer.
Every page of recipes has a note to refer to Assembly section for preparation instructions. I guess this is because she has general instructions for multiple cooking formats in there - slow cookers, dutch ovens, etc. So, it makes sense, but even as a seasoned person, it was a little annoying to have to go find this information. I also wish there were suggestions like serving certain recipes with suggested sides. I find some of the meat and fruit combinations to be more exotic than my family is used to, and I don't know what to do with them.
Another thing is that the book has very few pictures or colored tabs on the pages. That means if you are looking for a certain meat section, you have to go to the front where there is a recipe list to find the chicken or pork recipes. The new meat doesn't have a separate page or even a different colored tab on the side so you can easily find a recipe. And, the page numbers are in the center bottom of the page.
These are formatting things that are not an issue with an ebook where you can hit CTRL + F and search the document, but in a real book it makes things less user friendly. The two 'free' books included have far more colors and are much more visually appealing, but I didn't buy the book for those parts. I guess the best news is that it was cheaper to get a hard copy shipped with prime shipping and paying tax to amazon than buying the ebook from her website.
The meals wouldn't fit into the crockpot the day of because they were frozen in a large square and the crockpot is a circle. The options are to either 1) take up more freezer space by breaking up each meal into 2 or 3 bags 2) smash the frozen bag on the ground to break it into chunks that will actually fit into the crockpot (that's what I did) 3) reserve an additional 30+ minutes in the already busy morning before heading to work to let the frozen bag thaw in water just so it gets loose enough to dump into the crockpot.
So, all in all, we bought the ingredients for 7 meals, have only prepped 4, eaten 2 and spent $500 (groceries and chest freezer) all for some silly freezer meal cookbook. I don't recommend making that kind of investment to make this work.
