I purchased this book about a month ago and couldn't wait to try it. I own a decent slow cooker and I love the idea of putting my meals together and not having to watch them while they cook, or have them ready by the time I get home from work. Unfortunately A LOT of slow cooker recipes I've tried in the past (recipe books and online) yielded bland results, and a couple times I had to just throw the whole meal away just because it tasted so bad. So I was on a hunt for a good slow cooker recipe book.
So far I have tried about 10 recipes and I have to say, hands down, this is THE BEST slow cooking recipe book I've seen so far. As usual the authors go into details regarding why they made certain modifications to the recipes and why traditional recipes would not work as well. I love reading the science behind cooking, but if you are not into that then it is very easy to skip. Almost all of my recipes, except for one, turned out amazingly delicious. However, the reason why one recipe did not turn out was likely due to ingredient substitution (I had to sub out heavy cream for dairy free option).
Farmhouse Chicken Cornchowder, Chicken Broccoli, Lazy Man's Stuffed Cabbage, Stuffed Bell Peppers, Meatballs and Marinara Sauce have all become instant favorites and will stay on the "go-to" recipe list.
I was also able to successfully covert some of the recipes into a regular stove-top recipes.
It's a very versatile book and I definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a great slow-cooker recipe book.
