I love this book...I lost it in my house and I am going crazy cause I can't find it....I need another one...
I love this book so I bought one for my sister !
From my blog...As soon as I discovered my all-time favourite, foolproof cookbook was being released in a revised and updated version I had to have it! The Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook by Phyllis Pellman Good is now even better than before, and personally I did not think it could get better. The revised and updated version contains the same recipes my family loves with an additional 100 recipes totaling 700 Slow Cooker recipes for those who love their crock-pots. Anyone who knows me is fully aware that I detest cooking, however, crock-pot cooking is foolproof and so quick and easy, especially following the recipes from Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook. In addition to adding more recipes, each recipe includes the prep time, cooking time, and ideal crock-pot size. Pellman also included tip pages for substitutions, using a crock-pot, measurement equivalents, necessary kitchen tools, helpful advise and a greatly improved index. I have yet to find a better cookbook than Good's Fix-It and Forget It Cookbook and I would not hesitate to recommend to everyone.
For anyone with a slow cooker, the Fix It And Forget It Cookbook Series has been an absolute staple in your cookbook library. The newest 2017 edition, the “Fix It And Forget It Cookbook – 700 Great Slow Cooker Recipes” is the newest revision of the best-selling book. Starting with a quick welcome and a few tips on how to use your slow cooker effectively this huge tome dives right into the 700 recipes. The beauty of the recipes in the Fix It And Forget It Collections is that they are home-cook tested. That means that regular everyday people have created or tested these recipes and cooked them over and over again so you know that they’ll turn out exactly as expected. As with most slow cooker recipes, they are exceptionally easy and with 700 recipes the variety is excellent. Chapters include: Appetizers, Snacks & Spreads Breakfast Foods Breads Soups, Stews & Chilis Main Dishes Beef Main Dishes Pork Main Dishes Pasta & Pizza Main Dishes Chicken & Turkey Main Dishes Bean Main Dishes Seafood Main Dishes Meatless & Other Main Dishes Vegetables Desserts Beverages In order to assist you with your recipes, the back of the book has several auxiliary pages with information on Equivalent Measurements, Metric Equivalents, Substitutions and your Must-Have Kitchen Tools. The excellent index not only gives you an alphabetical list of each recipe but also groups items by the main ingredient. For instance, if you have a chocolate craving you just need to look under C for Chocolate to find a list of all of the recipes that include your favorite ingredient. The recipes themselves are very short, sweet and to the point, as with most slow cooker recipes. They all include the information on how many Servings, Prep Time, Cooking Time, and the ideal size of slow cooker pot to use. Many recipes also come with Serving Suggestions, and Variations. I love variations because that means you can personalize the recipe so much more easily because you know what variations will work. Some of the recipes even come with a little note from the contributor or somebody who’s made the recipe giving tips on how to use the recipe effectively. Not all of the recipes have a picture, it looks like about one in three recipes have one. I was so happy though to see the pictures are either on the same page with the recipe or they have a lovely nice label. Having the picture show the name of the recipe is so helpful. I hate it when I see pictures in a recipe book of a dish I have never experienced before and I don’t know what I’m looking at therefore I don’t know which recipe to use to make it. One of my favorite things to do with the slow cooker is Soups. It is especially good when it’s cold out to have a nice warming soup. I was thrilled to find 112 pages of Soups, Stews, & Chilis in this book which means variety! Your Imagination Is The Limit But Soups and Stews are not the only things you can make with a slow cooker. Quite literally your imagination is the only limit... See the full review and the recipe for Slow Cooker Pizza at The RecipesNow! Reviews And Recipes Magazine.
