I love cookbooks! They are so much fun to pick up and read. I love reading them from cover to cover. My newest cookbook review is the Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook. This is the revised & updated version that includes 700 "Great Slow Cooker Recipes".
This is already a very successful cookbook. The original cookbook has already sold over 5 million copies! So you ask, what is up with the revised and updated book?? It has been enhanced, "flavor injected" so to speak with 100 new recipes. Each recipe now includes "Prep Time," "Cooking Time," and "Ideal Slow-Cooker Size."
Cookbooks are fun to review because you get to actually eat the words on the pages! I love trying out new recipes on my family! This cookbook is all about using your slow cooker! Read my post, "Use your Slow Cooker year round" and read some great tips on using your crockpot/slow cooker that is also included in this new book.
Stay tuned for more information on this book! I'm also going to share some of the recipes that I've made so far. The first recipe that I made was Texas Queso Dip, pg. 12. It was a perfect addition to my Quick and Easy Fajitas.
