This is the easiest slow cooker cookbook. It describes each meal, and even if a few of the recipes sounded kinda strange - the 20+ that I tried were A+

I am a bit of a slow cooker fanatic and this is by far my favorite slow cooker cookbook. Every recipe is delicious and simple. They are often wonderful platforms for jumping off and creating your own recipes. If you only read one slow cooker cookbook, this is the one.

I liked this cookbook overall, after trying a number of the recipes I found, like Tturbo that I had to figure out some things for myself. I also found some of the seasonings for some items were a bit bland. I really liked that there were many things to choose from including this really good fudge cake.

Some great recipes but a few that need some adjustment to put less liquid in otherwise the finished meal was too watery
