REVIEW for Sandra Lee Semi-Homemade Slow Cooker Recipes 2

Thank you to Deanna at HarperCollins for sending me this recipe book!






TITLE: Sandra Lee Semi-Homemade Slow
Cooker Recipes 2

AUTHOR: Sandra Lee

GENRE: Cookbook

RATING: 3 Stars


I am a hopeless, hopeless cook - so when I discover Slow Cooker Recipe books, I always jump on them. This book was okay - most of the recipes were simple enough to prepare, but some of the ingredients were a little doubtful to me. Too many condensed soups (fatty, fatty) and some very specific items that were not always that easy to find at the supermarket.

Part of the reason I hate cooking is the shopping aspect and with this book, you have to shop. I am still trying to find a store that sells bacon crumble. The diversification of the recipes is somewhat limited. I thought there were alot of meat recipes - and if there is no meat, there is some other fatty ingredient.

I tried a few of the recipes such as the beef and root vegetables stew (although I don't really eat meat very much) and frankly, although I followed the recipe, the stew came out tasting average. I don't dislike this book, I just thought it would be better than it was.

Maybe that book's geared more to the US market - you can buy crumbled bacon in every store here.

IGA, Metro......etc sell bacon crumbs in a bag or bottle.
