Contrary to the review above, I adore the recipes in this book. However if you want to live on a bland boring diet, don't bother! Some of the recipe titles sound quite exotic, but 'Vermont baked custard' is simply a baked custard flavoured with maple syrup, 'hoki fish balls' white fish (recipe states you can use haddock or cod instead) in an easy tomato sauce. Other recipes include Lancashire hot-pot, tapioca pudding, baked stuffed apples and chocolate chip and banana pudding - this book offers plenty of basics and plenty of slightly more exotic recipes to choose from.

I needed a book on recipes for my new slow cooker as the one that came with the device featured only 4 recipes! I have now made several of the dishes featured in the book and found them very simple and easy to follow. My cooker seemed to cook faster than was suggested in the this new recipe book but that's okay. I've only had the book a few weeks so have not made much more than soups (delicious) and a meat dish. This has been mainly because the weather has been rather hot for the type of meals we normally consume. Iwould recommend this book both for experienced users of slow cookers and novices like myself.

I was looking for recipes that are not the usual stew or chilli. I like to put my slow cooker to work, while I am at work, so I get home to a ready meal. You can not do so with these recipes. For most of them you have to be present in the kitchen as they require adding ingredient mid-cooking. Also the preparation is quite long for many of the dishes. You get to put the ingredients to the slow cooker very late in the process.
But...I'm slowly starting to realize, that if you want to cook anything other than stews or chillies in the slow cooker, it takes a bit more work in order to make it taste right. I'll keep this book for days, when I'm at home and want to prepare something nice. For my work-days I'll stick to other books. The recipes are interesting and the pictures are really appetizing. I could debate about the "step by step" thing; it means you get an extra one or two photos of the food in preparation, but that's about it. The book also includes basic slow cooker information.
So, if you are looking for recipes, that are simple, "throw it in, plug it in and forget about it", this is not the book for you. But, if you are looking for a bit different slow cooker book, it's worth a try!

edited to add:
after a closer look I'm really curious, what recipes allowed one of the reviewer's son&daughter in law, to have their meals cooked while at work-there are no such recipes. Cooking times are very short and practically ALL of the recipes require adding ingredients at various stages of cooking and extensive preparation before you can put food in the slow cooker. It's not a recipe book you can use to prepare food in the slow cooker while you are away from home.

Try the beef in horseradish sauce recipe - ok there is a bit of prep involved but you won't be disappointed - it was worth the extra effort - my children loved it. My dad regularly cooks the meatball recipe for his friends. If you have a slow cooker you must own this book.

Bought this book for our Grandson & his lovely lady, they were really happy with it as they work long hours, yet come home to a cooked meal. The recipes are easy to follow, & very adaptable.

Format: Paperback
This book has 7 sections, soups and appetizers, fish and shellfish, poultry and game, meat dishes, vegetarian and side dishes, desserts and cakes, preserves and drinks. 95 pages.
Page 12 starts with the 1st recipe: French onion soup with cheese croutes. Many of the recipes sound delicious but be prepared to stock up your cupboards with many of the ingredients.
Its for the adventurous slow-cooker cook. Not many of the meals are family orientated eg, Spinach and Nut stuffed herrings, Hoki balls in tomato sauce, Creamy anchovy and potato bake and thats just the fish section. In the poultry section however, you could make Spring chicken slow-braised in smoky bacon sauce or the old english fave Caribbean peanut chicken. Failing that there`s Chicken in a cashew nut sauce !! (granny would raise an eye brow or two!) meat dishes consist of braised beef in a rich peanut sauce, hot and sour pork. vegetarian and side dishes consist of Mushroom and Fennel hot-pot (yummy) or you could grace your meal plate with the Coconut, tomato and lentil Dhal with toasted almonds recipe(only 18 ingredients in that one).
Should I go on with the Vermont baked Maple custard dessert or Poached Pears in Red Wine?
I think you may have got the message by now.
If you want simple family cooking there are about 8 recipes in this book that would suit both adults and children and most of them are in the meat and dessert dishes.
However, on the other hand if you are cooking to impress, then this book is for you Delia.... !
