Cookbook for the crockpot lover
Meat and crockpot lovers will like this book. Being a vegetarian I didn’t get too much out of it, as all main dishes, except two (Arroz con queso and Minestra di Ceci), are with meat or seafood.
From what I understood Phyllis Pellman Good collected those recipes from other people and edited them for this book. Every recipe has a name and town at the top, so I assume that is the person who contributed the recipe. A good sign, as those meals tend to be more “real life” as some you can find in the cookbooks from professional cook book authors. All ingredients are common and easy to find, no recipe has an impossible amount of ingredients and all you do is put them in the crockpot and let it do its magic.
Some recipes come with a photo and those also look like real life pictures taken in a real environment – not the kind where the food stylist has created a “dish” that nobody will ever be able to produce.
If I were a meat eater I’d cook several of the recipes. Here are some that would have appealed to me in my previous life.
- Barbecued Ribs
- Ham with sweet potatoes and oranges
- Garlic with lime chicken
- Turkey Fajitas
The veggie factor
|Recipe ratio (non.veg./veg)||40/60. Almost all main dishes are non veggie, the sides are without meat.|
