With fresh ingredients and imaginative recipes, you can create delicious meals to serve with pride to your guests.

    • gormet slow cooker

      Ive tried several recipes in this book, and overall they have been quite good. I may not be the best person to review this book, because my husband and I don't eat red meat , and many of the recipes in this book are for that.. The curry chicken under Indian was great!

    • Great dinners even my children love!

      I am very impressed with this book. As a busy mother of two boys under four, I use my crock pot at least 4 times per week. This book gave us some new favorites, like the chile verde. So easy to make and delicious.
