Fix-It and Forget-It Lightly: Healthy, Low-Fat Recipes for Your Slow Cooker by Phyllis Pellman GoodI wasnt such a fan of this, although it did have its good points too.
For the good: there is a wide variety of food, including main dishes, soups, and desserts, even vegetarian. There is a variety of cooking times so you can always find something for however long you work that day. The nutrition info is clearly labelled after the recipe, including fiber which is usually omitted, and they all are very low calorie and fat, but slow cookers bring out the flavors, so they should still be good tasting.
For the bad: this is a cookbook where people submit their own recipes, which I find to be hit or miss to begin with, but additionally there is a lot of overlap-you can sometimes find 4 or 5 different recipes for the same dish, which to me seems like a waste of space. Also, I dont consider myself to be an overly picky eater, but it seemed like almost every recipe either had pork, or mushrooms, or bell peppers, or celery-blegh. Plus there are no pictures at all, and I am highly visual when it comes to choosing a recipe to try from a cookbook.
On second thought, I think I was too focused on the negative everytime I flipped through looking for something to try out. Perhaps Ill check it out again later, and try to find a recipe that looks good at a later date, as big as it is, there has to be something! Besides, I dont want to be that person who has a slow cooker theyve never used (you know who you are out there!) So, this review might be updated later.
