Way better than I expected
March 5, 2012
Bought this on the recommendation of a friend and had no idea how great it would be. Brightens up the usual braises with fresh salads and salsas. Really interesting variations on the usual stews, brisket and pork, but best of all, amazing, unexpected seafood recipes. Halfway through the book and not a flop yet. You really need this book if you use a slow cooker.
Pros: Easy to Use, Time-saver, delicious

Great for Full Time Working Parents
January 10, 2012
My family has LOVED the recipes in this book. The instructions are easy to follow. It includes recipes that are inexpensive to make as well as ones that are for special occasions that require special ordered meats. The Posole cost about $22 using organic ingredients at my local supermarket and made about 4 quarts of a very hearty stew plus toppings - if the vegetables were in season and I were gardening it would have cost $10. The Chicken Paprika recipe was about $11 with a vegetarian fed/no hormones/no antibiotics/free range chicken. On one of my off days, I cook one recipe in my dutch oven while I cook another in the crock pot overnight. Considering I work 3 12+ hr shifts/wk, I LOVE that just one recipe feeds my family for days.
Pros: Easy to Use, Quality, Design, delicious, variety of flavors and ethnic recipes
