I love using my slow cooker especially during the winter months. I can say after having used Fix-It and Forget-It Christmas Cookbook for a whole weeks worth of meals, that whether you’re just starting to use a slow cooker, or are a veteran with this small appliance, you will find hundreds of new favorite dishes to make in it.
The book begins with tips for using your slow cooker. What to buy, learning it, maximizing its use, debunking the myths, safety and adapting recipes.
From there the recipes are divided into sections, literally covering every food you can think of. Breakfast, lunches, suppers, desserts, including really easy recipes, and others that include ingredients that might take a little hunting to find at your grocery store! A huge selection of 600 recipes, it makes it possible to find something even the pickiest eater will like.
One of the great things about this book is that it gives how many servings the recipe yields, as well as the ideal slow cooker size. That’s invaluable to me, as I have a couple of different sizes, and am often unsure of which one I should use.
All in all if you use your slow cooker on a regular basis and want some new and proven recipes to use with it, Fix-It and Forget-It Christmas Cookbook is a must in your kitchen (cough, cough, it would also make a good Christmas gift..)
The only improvement I can think for it, is that it would have a binding that would lay flat, so that when you are using it in your kitchen, you don’t have to worry about the pages flipping over. * I have since been informed that there is a spiral bound version of the book, that allows for it to lay flat on your counter! Woot, Fix-It and Forget-It thought of everything apparently!
Our favorite recipe that we tried from a week’s worth of meals, was the Easy Ravioli. It is SERIOUSLY easy, but so yummy, and perfect for a potluck or for supper on a busy day.
