    So it would seem that with the latest updates Goodreads not only puts any book that I purchase from into my currently reading ueue it also pays attention to when I finish those books Which normally would be fine I guess but when I get a cook book I flip through to take a look at the menu item names and then go back and read them well if like in this case the author says something about the various recipes and the places that they are pulled from Now to be fair there are some good recipes in this book but I have never considered Boston Bake Beans a Gourmet food Guess I will have to try the recipe out and find out if that is an incorrect assumption on my part The recipes are pulled from various corners of the World The US England Italy Greece and India a wide mix if not comprehensive Still it has a good mix although sometimes it seems the book is geared to selling wine along with giving you recipes to cook Think I will skip that part never developed a taste Some good recipes though that I am looking forward to trying out

    The sub title of this book is Simple and Sophisticated Meals from Around the World and I have to say it is perfect subtitle This book is great way to use your slow cooker but in a way that adds just a little to the meal Any of the recipes would be great on any night of the week but also for a dinner party The recipes are delicious but the author also offers up drinking suggestions to go with it The layout style and photos of the cookbook just make it a lovely read It is a cookbook I would like to own And I know it is one I would open uite a lot as I use my slow cooker year round Favorite recipes Chicken and dumplings Pork Stew in Tomatillo Sauce Dublin Coddle Beef Burgundy Provencal Beef Stew Chicken Piperade Tarragon Chicken Artichoke Risotto Chicken Cacciatore Apricot Chicken Beef Biryani and just on and on as you can see

    We were given a crock pot as a wedding present and its been pretty fun trying it out We used the internet for recipes for awhile but I saw these and love cookbooks with beautiful pictures I also like how it tells the history of each dish and what wines are best for the dish

    This is a good read and has some lovely recipes Unfortunately they all involve cooking parts of the dish outside of the slow cooker The tips section has this sentence In many cases the outcome of the dish would not be adversely affected if you skipped this step and simply combined all of the ingredients in the slow cooker at once The recipes do not indicate where this might work and where it probably does not work however So this book is not going to save anybody any time which in my view is one of the primary reason to think about using a slow cooker Still it's a very nice book The recipes are well chosen and interesting the photos are beautiful the layout is terrific the prose is well written and the drink suggestions are thoughtful

    This little volume presents some very luscious international meals for the slow cooker with recipes representing the United States Mexico Great Britain Ireland France Italy Greece and India Most main dish recipes contain meat and there are a number of side dishes as well as desserts included My family will attest to the deliciousness of the Beef and Guinness Stew Also appreciated are the suggestions for beers wines and beverages to accompany the recipes including the dessertsMany of the recipes reuire some sautéing of ingredients before putting in the slow cooker but that does improve the uality taste of the finished product All in all a nice variety of recipes that are not just the average crockpot dish

    What a great tool I recommend the volume 2 vegetarian cookbooks too I've bought them all This book was a fun impulse buy that has been worth every penny It's wonderful for people who really want from their crockpot than the unfortunate status uo cannedbottledpackaged food and meat combos The purchase is of a coffeespice grinder is needed The homemade spice mixes add a lot to the recipes I do also recommend that you adjust each recipe to suit your own taste and food on hand The key to success with these books is to use the best ingredients for the best result Buy spices in bulk inexpensively at Whole Foods

    This book is not for the faint hearted one time chefs or those who want to just throw stuff in and get on with it This is a book that has taken time to slowly develop into an awesome round the world trip You have to try at least one recipe from one country Find your favorite and invite your neighbors Also a must have on your shelf or kindle

    i usually don't like slow cooker recipes but this cookbook is well worth the 12 from it's so relaxing to put these recipes together in the morning while rhys is sleeping and then be able to actually enjoy dinner without getting stressed out

    Not only are the recipes interesting but the Tips for the Slow Cooker invaluable It's the only book of this type that I've read that includes fundamentals in slow cooking which I found very helpful
