There are no pictures of the food, which makes me sad, but there are some great recipes Having borrowed this book from the library, I now want it for my own shelves. Other than the little snippets of ideas for celebrating Christmas that are scattered through the book, this cookbook is not particularly Christmassy The vast majority of the recipes are standard slow cooker favorites, of course emphasizingwintry stews, etc I was struck by two things first of all, Ms Good has quite a business plan she gets people to send her recipes, tests them and then includes them with credit, to give her credit in a cookbook At least, I m pretty sure she tests them because of occasional comments Second, the mostly women who send her the recipes are heavily of German origin not that surprising since it s one of the largest ethnic groups in the US that hardly considers itself ethnic anyand concentrated in the eastern midsection of the country and parts of the south Without actually counting, it appeared that Ohio, Indiana and Pennsylvania accounted for a great many of the recipes There s a fair amount of canned soup and other convenience foods called for You could probably get many similar recipes in any church cookbook and save some money though, I bought this used and it didn t cost much Your mileage may differ. This is one of my favorite slow cooker cookbooks I use it on a regular basis It is a cookbook I will be using throughout the year Slow cookers are awesome year round This book has many recipes that would work anytime as well as ones that are great for parties and holidays I love it The recipes are easy enough for beginners and there are recipes for the experienced cook. Some good recipes The thing I don t like much about the Fix it and Forget it series is that there are no photos and there are often nearly duplicates of some recipes, with only minor changes and no explanation on what makes one recipe different from the next.I haven t had a chance to make any of the recipes yet but I m hoping to try Taco Casserole page 125Glazed Carrots page 212Gingerbread Pudding Cake page 242 Most of the recipes in this book are not at all healthy, and don t sound that tasty, either I did like all of the recipes on holiday drinks there are probably some ones worth trying in that section There are a few party appetizers and entrees that might be worth a shot as well Still useful as a source of inspiration for Christmas recipes, but not a book I ll be buying anytime soon. A short cookbook that seemed to have a lot of recipes that have been around for ages At least one didn t even use a slow cooker to prepare the dish But it would probably come in handy for the hectic days leading up to Christmas when you need something easy for a holiday party. Some good ideas to make life a bit easier at busy times I bought a copy to keep around and enjoyed thumbing through and choosing a couple recipes I found that would appeal to my family Ingredients are easily available and recipes are not complicated. I m going to come off as a slow cooker snob here, but these recipes are too middle America for me However the Christmas Smells recipe on page 4 really does work That one s a keeper.
