A cookbook featuring over 700 great slow cooker recipes by author Phyllis Pellman Good.
I am not a chef. I admit it. If it is a recipe that calls for tons of fancy ingredients and tons of time, then I forget it. I would rather it be a recipe that I can throw together quickly and with little effort. We live where it is hot as well, so I don’t like staying in a hot kitchen for hours to cook one meal.  When I received this book, I was curious to know if it was going to be a cookbook that would help me with my dilemma.  
Surprisingly, it did help!  There are tons of recipes in this book that even a beginner on a low budget can do with little effort.  Now granted, it does require you to have a slow cooker, and it does ask for certain things such as certain kinds of soups, yet you could always substitute the ingredients to your own liking.  There were a few that I have already made with my slow cooker in the past, so I know these recipes are reliable and great!
Here is just a sample of the recipes you will find in the book:
Pizza Fondue, BBQ Beef Sandwiches, Chili, Chicken Soup, Spiced Coffee, Hot Fruit Punch, Gingerbread, Lemon Bread and Pot Roasts!
I was amazed at some of the things you can actually cook in a slow cooker.  For instance, I didn’t even know you could cook bread in a slow cooker!  It also gives a list of substitutions, conversions, and hints on how to use your slow cooker better. I loved this cookbook and it makes it easy to just fix it and forget it!

Outstanding Book That Will Stay On My Bookshelf
For Rereading! 5 STARS

    I have teenage boys (they eat A LOT), so any time I can use the crockpot for an easy meal–count me in! Thanks Amy!
