The recipes are listed by people who have submitted them, so there are some variations on the same recipe. I welcome this; the variations help people who have allergies or when you are missing an ingredient.
This book would make a great wedding present.
It was as though the authors asked for recipes and then didn't want to offend anyone by leaving any of them out of the cookbook. Reading the recipes was confusing to me, some of them were so similar I thought at first some of the recipes were printed twice.
The index is a disaster. For instance, Apple Butter is listed under *Appetizers*. Apple Butter is a breakfast spread. Most people would think of it that way. It's not listed under *Breakfast* though. This doesn't make sense because some of the recipes are double-listed. There's Apple Cake listed under *Cakes* and then listed again under *Desserts*. It would have been less confusing, IMO, to list under Cakes, and then have other separate categories for the other desserts.
Aside from the negative, I have had this book a couple of weeks and I've cooked three meals from this book. All of the meals were great. My family raved about them and none of the food went to waste (great for the food budget). My family's reaction was the reason I gave the book three stars.
I have since looked in the stores for other crock pot cookbooks. Unfortunately, all the ones I've seen are full of *gourmet* recipes, which my sons, ages 20 and 16 refuse to eat. This book, even with it's flaws, is the only one out there with real home cooking. But, I wish the authors would re-do the book by taking out the duplicate recipes and fixing the index.
