Crock pot cooking is simple, and this cookbook follows that guideline. I like how the book is organized, and the pages are fun and easy-to-read. However, I was a bit disappointed at how many recipes were repeated. There are SO MANY recipes for pot roast, chili, beans, etc., and all of these recipes are incredibly similar. There are a few worthwhile recipes that I use over and over; however, there are better crock pot cookbooks out there. In addition, if you're looking for healthy foods or vegetarian-friendly recipes, skip this one. However, if you just need some quick, easy-to-use crock pot recipes, and don't mind wading through the duplicates, this one may be for you.
