This is an American cookbook using American ingredients, American names for foods and American measurements.
I have American conversion tables for measurements and food names on my fridge and I shop in an American Navy base supermarket, but I still struggle with these recipes. In addition many of the recipes require quite a lot of different ingredients, so you are unlikely to have them all in your store cupboard without prior planning.

I bought this book with very low expectations, but what a brilliant book. Not only is is vegetarian, it is vegan and low fat. I have worked my way through some of the book creating tasty and satisfying main meals and still have loads of things to try. Everyone was a winner, even the recipes I thought might not be to my taste! On the strength of this book I have bought more of Robin Robertsons cookery books and have not been disappointed. One word of warning though, this is an American cookery book and has American cup measures which scare some people. No problem, go and buy a set of American cup measures and you're away. It's actually a lot easier than weighing everything!

I got given a slow cooker and was expecting to make nothing but stew and soup. I did some internet searching and came across this title. After seeing it had Bourbon-Spiked Pumpkin Bread Pudding in it, I clicked "BUY". And am totally glad I did. Still not made any puddings but working my way through it. Everything so far has been really tasty, I even bought another slow cooker !

Today I made "Mac and Cheese Florentine" (though it has no cheese in!) and was thoroughly impressed.

Everything in it is Vegan too, which is unusual for "vegetarian" cook books, they usually get as much eggs and cheese in as they can.

I live alone and do a lot of cooking "ready meals for one" for the freezer, this is the perfect companion.

I wasn't 100% sure this would be a good purchase, but went with it because of the promised tips. I love the great section on cooking basic beans, and the fact that she gives slow cooker sizes (so you know how to adjust ingredents before you fill it up and see that it's overflowing, or hardly full at all). Less useful is that it's all in American sizes, and some recipes call for funny ingredents. When I first bought it, I was frustrated that it seemed like yet another cookbook for SAHMs, rather than real people who are out (you know, the ones who use their slow cookers?), but then I actually looked for recipes that take 6-8 hours to cook, and gave up after bookmarking about 15 or so. While that seems like pathetically few in a book of 200 recipes, given that there's about 15 recipes in the "apetizers and snacks" section, and 11 in condiments-- who knew you could make chutney in a slow cooker?, and 20 in the deserts section and 9 in drinks, it's not such a small proportion of mains that can take all day vs mains that you have to fuss with, and there's plenty of random cool things you could do with your slow cooker. I'd also recommend this to meat eaters, too, for interesting additions to the menu when a veggie comes to visit. Put a roast in the oven for yourself, and one of these dishes in the slow cooker, and off you go. I've made 3 of the recipes in the 3 weeks since i've had this book.
