4.0 out of 5 stars A good cookbook for small slow cooker meals July 19 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I have been searching for a slow cooker cook book that gives recipes for smaller cookers. The author has lots of great recipes and suggestions for smaller servings and what to do with leftovers. The recipes look to be well tested for optimum outcome. This book would be a welcome addition to a solo or for two cook's collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful for cooking with fresh ingredients in the small slow cooker April 23 2008
By E. Hedler - Published on
This was an extremely helpful book for a single person who likes to cook, and who just bought a small (1.5 quart) slow cooker. Some of the recipes I haven't tried yet, but I'm looking forward to the cheese fondue! The beef burgandy came out great, as did the lentil and butternut squash stew. The recipes use mostly fresh stuff, and don't rely on weird canned products (no adding a can of cream of something soup). It is a British book, so some of the expectations of which ingredients are common aren't quite accurate for the US (they give special instructions on where to find sweet potatos, but have about six recipes for lamb dishes, for example). There is a good selection of meat and vegetarian recipes.

4.0 out of 5 stars great book to expand your repertoire Jan. 8 2009
By J. Godsey - Published on
It may be a British cookery book, but it has much yummyness in it. It DOES have American ad well as UK measurements in it. The recipe sizes are for 1 and 2 servings, decent amounts for any solo cook. the extra information in it is quite valuable. I would recommend it to anyone who is NOT a beginner.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good slow cooker recipes Dec 16 2008
By Any Mouse - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have enjoyed many of the recipes in this book. It has more lamb recipes than you'd usually find, which is wonderful for people who love lamb stews, etc.

I do find myself altering each recipe to my own individual tastes and ideas, so, after using the first couple of recipes, I'm not so sure I NEED the book any more --- slow cooking is a rather broad skill, and precise measurements are usually not needed.

So if you are a decent cook, this book may not be for you. If you are a beginner cook or have never worked with a slow cooker before, an investment in this book might be worth it.

Experienced slow cooker cooks could browse this book on the shelf, get the general idea, and not spend the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars The best cookbook for mini-slow cookers March 24 2010
By Ann in Amherst - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I selected this book because a friend in England had been using it. Although it's a UK item, it is readily avaiable on Amazon. Do note the prices, however -- they vary greatly, in part because shipping costs also vary, depending on whether you are ordering from a stateside merchant or one actually in England. Besides recipes, the book discusses features of mini slow cookers, information that I found very helpful. This book is specifically for 1 1/2 or 2-qt cookers, which for me was an asset -- there is another -- Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Recipes for Two -- that is designed for slow cookers up to 3 1/2 quarts. One item to be aware of -- it's good to be comfortable with both metric and U.S. measuring systems. Both are given, but some are not accurate -- for example, the recipe for Irish stew starts off with 450gm (2lb) lamb shoulder; later, it lists 450gm (1 lb) potatoes, sliced thin. 450 gm is about 1 lb; you'd never get the 2 lb of meat in! I actually found that 1 lb for each of those was a bit much; my package of lamb chops was about 0.8 lb, and even after cutting into cubes just fit into the cooker, on top of about 3/4 lb potatoes.

2.0 out of 5 stars not that slow, actually Feb. 18 2011
By KayDee - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was hoping that this book would contain recipes that I could leave to slow-cook all day, and be ready to go when I return from work. Unfortunately the bulk of the recipes take between 1.5 and 3.5 hours to cook, so I'm not sure most would be possible to make on a weekday if you work. Disappointing.
