My Thoughts on this Book
I love slow cooker recipes so I jumped at this book to review and I am very happy I did. This is by far one of the very best slow cooker recipe books I’ve ever seen. The recipes are ones you would use for your family meals. They are easy, fun and tasty, and I did try a few of them. And I love not having to slave over the stove for supper!
I really like the variety of recipes here too. You will even find Gluten-free recipes, Dairy-free ones, Vegetarian ones……along with so very many more.
I highly recommend this book for your recipe collection. Go grab a copy while you are thinking about it and have a blast cooking!
