Didn't get a chance to make too much from this. My one quibble just from skimming recipes is that most of them fall into 6 hours or so (many quite a bit less) of cooking, which doesn't work for me on weekdays. That, and if I'm using the slow cooker, it means I'm feeling LAZY (and/or are trying to cook before work), so I can't handle a whole lot of pre-prep.

All that said, I made chili, and it was DELICIOUS. Also appreciated the tip of "poaching" frozen chicken for use later. (Would cook a little less time (was almost overdone at 6 hours), maybe add some Johnny's Seasoning Salt to the broth.)

Definitely want to get my own copy to try out more recipes. ( )

I got a slow cooker after my son was born but I didn't really know what to do with it. This cookbook has shown me that a slow cooker is good for cooking a lot more than just soup, stew and meatballs. I now use mine to make stock, tomato sauce and beans. While not every recipe I've tried has been successful, this cookbook has helped me learn how to use my slow cooker in more ways than I thought possible and improvise recipes for it.

Standout recipes: Minestrone; Potato Soup; Salsa Chicken; Mexicana Tomato Salsa ( )

Yes, this was the slow cooker cookbook I was looking for. Real food. Most of the ingredients, I can get. (And the others are very California specific.) The authors treat their readers as other cooks - they encourage using the recipes creatively. ( )
