This is why, when I was given the opportunity to review Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook Revised & Updated by Phyllis Pellman Good, I jumped at the chance! After all, this cookbook has 700 slow cooker recipes including appetizers, snacks and spreads, breakfast foods, breads (who knew you could make bread in a slow cooker?), soups, stews and chilis, main dishes (includes beef, pork, pasta, chicken and turkey, bean, seafood and meatless), vegetables, desserts and beverages. Not only are there recipes in this cookbook, there are also tips for using your slow cooker, information for substituting ingredients and equivalent measurements as well as a few other things that will help you when using your slow cooker. I actually learned a few things about substitutions that I will use in my kitchen.
With all 700 recipes, I had a hard time choosing which one I wanted to try first. I went out and bought some stew meat so that I could make Beef Burgundy which is found on page 100 of the cookbook. The hardest thing about this recipe was slicing up the onions! The rest of the recipe was dump into the pot. Now that's my kind of recipe! Here's what my beef burgundy looked like:
Oh, I should mention that I love to use those slow cooker liners because it really makes clean-up easy! The beef was so tender that you could cut it with a fork! Phyllis Pellman Good recommends that you serve this over cooked noodles, but I didn't have any so we just ate it by itself. I think this would be great over egg noodles or even rice. This is one cookbook that I will use many, many times. There are a few other dinner meals that I plan to make in the near future and I'd love to try out some of the breakfast and bread recipes in here.
I'm so excited to tell you that one lucky reader of Giveaways and More will win a copy of Fix-It and Forget-It by Phyllis Pellman Good!
