To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Slow cooker is a new purchase, so bought this book for some basic recipes. Extremely good value and would have had 5 stars, but for one thing. There is no index, so it will be necessary to write down the location number for any recipe used, otherwise it will mean going through the whole book to find it...Because of the genre of this book, it is an unfortunate oversight.
Many many good recipes that make slow cooker cooking easy and tasty. Thank you Karen for a well thought out and tried recipe book! Nutritional meals that are made very easy and ready in the slow cooker! Try Karen's Instapot recipes on her 365 website.....very comprehensive, explanatory and easy too.
I have been tough on "so-called" cookbooks that feature a couple of dozen recipes or less. You can't call it a book when you can read through the whole thing in less than a half hour.
Ms. Petersen gives us a legitimate real life full book here. What is more she has taken slow cookers to new heights of cooking. I had no idea you could make breads or cakes in a slow cooker. I honestly learned things here after spending 40 years cooking.
Now this cookbook is VERY BASIC with little cooking skill needed. Now although the recipes are basic, they combine good ingredients that will appeal to most appetites. Most of the ingredients are simply toss in and cook.
It is also a full cookbook featuring recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and desserts. My only problem with the breakfast recipes is that most of them require 2-3 hours of cook time. What mom is going to get up that much earlier than her family to put the breakfast on. On the other hand these recipes definitely work for BRUNCH.
The food photography is better than average featuring pleasant bokeh (this means that the dish is in focus but the background is blurry, it makes for great food photography) My only complaint about this is that there were not nearly enough pics. With e books there is no additional cost to add photos and I encourage her to add more pics to the book. That is another advantage of e books, they can be modified with no cost and improved.
Kudos maam, I am impressed and the .99 cents is highly undervalued. I would have gladly paid $2.99 for the book
