  • My Take:

    I absolutely love to use my slow cooker. I even use it to just cook chicken to shred and use in other recipes.

    Winter, summer - it doesn't matter what time of year - the slow cooker is an easy way to make a home-cooked meal.

    It can be especially useful for cooking during the holidays, and this is where these Fix-It and Forget-It cookbooks come in handy.

    I realize that these cookbooks are focused on the winter holiday season, but I got a bit behind on some of my reviews. So I'm sharing my review now. Since I use my slow cooker all the time, then it doesn't really matter anyway. And my husband would celebrate Christmas every day if he could! J

    I haven't had the opportunity to make all of the recipes in these books, but the ones we did make were good. We especially enjoyed the sweets and desserts book. We often forget to use the slow cooker for desserts, too! My husband really liked the Easy Chocolate Clusters and the Cherry Cobbler (though we used peaches!)

    There were a couple of places where the formatting of the ebook was not great and we could not tell what some of the measurements were, but these were few and far between.

    I will give these Fix-It and Forget-It cookbooks ... 3½ BookWorms.
