 My Review

Fix-It and Forget-It 5-ingredient favorites: Comforting Slow-Cooker Recipes by Phyllis Pellman Good
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

The recipes in this book are Americanized versions of (mostly) European comfort foods. The book is geared for people on the go or people with limited cooking abilities.

I'm an intermediate-cook (and a kitchen witch!) who will happily dedicate an entire day to the kitchen. I love quick and easy recipes but I also like to challenge my cooking skills. This book didn't challenge me.

My house is flexitarian; we skip meat many times a week. Most of these recipes involve meat in some form.

My household works around strict diets of sodium (heart health) and carbs/sugars (diabetes), as well as food allergies. Most of the recipes call for pre-packaged/processed foods. There weren't many recipes that I could test because of the dietary restrictions. As for making substitutions, I would wind up making the original European recipes which negates the need for these recipes.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review.
