The Great American Slow Cooker Book: 500 Easy Recipes for Every Day and Every Size MachineThe Great American Slow Cooker Book: 500 Easy Recipes for Every Day and Every Size Machine by Bruce Weinstein
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Genre: Non-Fiction/Cookbook


Cooking for me is a very visual hands on experience and so I thought that this review for a cookbook should be a lot more visual than a book review would be for me, so here goes!
he recipes really vary there are some fairly easy ones that even your mother or grandmother might have a similar recipe to but the majority of them are what I would consider fancier, basically gourmet slow cooker recipes. So if you love your crock pot but want to try new recipes this is a very good source for that.

The authors of this cookbook do have quite the introduction about slow cooking and slow cookers and I found it very informative even though I have been using a crock pot to cook with for more than a decade.
Okay so as you can see by the recipe name this is what I was talking about earlier when I said this is a great book to try new recipes out with your crock pot. So another great feature of the recipes is that each step is numbered, I love when it is broken down like this in a recipe and not just all jumbled together in paragraph form, this makes it so much easier to read while you are preparing the dish.

I loved everything about this cookbook except for one thing the lack of pictures, I am a very visual recipe picker, if I see the picture and the food is visually pleasing I am more likely to try that recipe with that being said this cookbook really lacked pictures there is a total of 8, front to back, pages of pictures that to me is just not enough for me even though the pictures they do have are gorgeous food pics.
It is hard to try to figure out how to rate a cookbook because they don't have the same criteria to me that fiction books do so I am going to still give it a go though.

Thanks for coming by,
Amy
