    1. I bought this book (on ) nearly six years ago, and am just getting around to using it. I wish I had perused it sooner! My third recipe from this book is cooking as I write this (or #4 if you count the one somebody stole from this book and added to a published cookbook of her own). These recipes are incredibly flavorful. Most of them do require some advance prep, but since I'm retired I have the time.It should be noted that the first chapter of this book, which is entitled "essential slow cooker" [...]

    2. We are in a season of life where the crock pot is a must. I pull it out three nights a week so dinner is ready when we get back from kids' activities. This cookbook is loaded with great family friendly recipes using healthy, whole ingredients. I am borrowing this from the library, and as of this review I have had it out for six weeks. In that time I have made 12 of the recipes, and we have enjoyed every single one. The book is well organized and the directions are very clear. All of the ingredie [...]

    3. My wife and I have long trusted Cooking Light's delectable recipes, most of which are simple to prepare. We are also big fans of the slow cooker (no, really: bit/syxDV5). It's great to have a volume of 57 slow cooker recipes constructed with the same delicious simplicity that Cooking Light brings to its regular recipes.Here's a breakdown of contents: * Essential Slow Cooker * Meats * Poultry * Vegetarian * Soups & Stews * Sides & DessertsFrom an Maple-Hazelnut Oatmeal (wake up to the aro [...]

    4. So I am sooooo excited about my new slow cooker and am still trying to figure out the coolest ways to use it. This book had a chapter of vegetarian recipes that looked pretty good, but most of the book was dominated by meat recipes. (I guess meat tastes really good when you slow cook it but I wouldn't know!) I made the veggie red bean stew which was pretty awesome and yummy. Also made the oatmeal - steel cut oatmeal you cook overnight and have warm to greet you in the morning! Definitely going t [...]

    5. French Beans and Sausage - Love this, will make each winter at least onceThai Style Pork Stew - quite tasty, would like to make againCheesy Spinach Artichoke Dip - tasty, but a bit on the sweet side. Don't know that I'd make this againAlso good, but have in other cookbooks:Company Pot RoastBeef Daube ProvencalStill want to try:Pork Chops & GravyCaribbean Seafood PotBeef Burgundy

    6. I love this book. I barrowed it years ago and made the bean barrito, the barely and cabbage, the caramel cake, the chocolate caramel cake and the shiitake mushroom meatloaf. I think this is the book I made my first potato soup from too. YUM to say the least. I love how good the other recipes in this book look tooSo we'll be making the turkey sub sandwiches, the turkey and cherries, and the others I mentioned before again. Get out that cooker for the summer and have fun with this book. We did.

    7. I thought this book was perfect. Exactly what I'm looking for in a weeknight cookbook. My only issue with it is that there are only 57 recipes! I just found out there's another; I'm going to have to get it. If you use your slow cooker a lot, this is a really great book. The recipes are pretty easy, healthy, and appeal to a broad range of tastes (though nothing is too exotic).

    8. The first selection for the Cookbook Club at the Westerville Library!I tried the Roasted Squash Soup. May have gotten some of the measurements wrong, but it turned out ok. Could have run it through the food processor a couple more times to make it smoother. Not my favorite, but good!

    9. Soup is my staple during the fall/winter and there are some really good recipes in here. I even made huge batches and canned them for future use.
