AND NOW...THE FIFTH CHAPTER (click on pages to enlarge):
I have been starting to cook with a slow cooker more and more and was looking forward to this cookbook in hopes to add more recipes to my collection. Unfortunately I have been disappointed with this cookbook and I am not sure how often I will try recipes from it. Some of the things that I disliked was there were no pictures, the spiral binding was not constructed well which makes it hard to turn the pages and too many recipes that did not interest me. This is not a basic meat, veggie, and potatoes cookbook and found many odd and strange combinations. Many of the recipes you really do not need to use a slow cooker for and require a lot more prep then dump a bunch of stuff in it and walk away. I am sure there are some people who will enjoy the recipes if there taste is for different. Final rating 2 out of 5 stars.
