From Reidhead Randomness:

Easy. Yummy. Quick!  The recipes are easy, yummy and quick to put together.  My family and I have been feasting from the slow cooker in preparation for this review!  My kids aren't really picky eaters, but they LOVED everything I have made from this cookbook.  They did complain about the smell of the cooking broccoli in the recipe 'Cheesy Chicken and Broccoli' but they ended up loving the taste after it was all done.

The calico baked beans were fabulous! My daughter (Mac & Cheese fanatic) loved the Mac & Cheese in the crock pot! 

There is a big variety of recipes...Breakfast, Party Foods, Side Dishes, Soups & Stews, Chilies, Main Dishes, and Desserts!

If I had one complaint, it would be that there are a lot of "premade" ingredients.  For example:  Rather than use spices in the cupboard, it calls for "dry spaghetti sauce mix"....or other "seasoning mixes."  I know they are meant to save time and make things easier, but I would like to have the spices list as a foot note as another option. 

I can't wait to try more of these recipe creations....I have so many pages book marked!  EVERYTHING was super yummy, and very easy!  I really liked this cookbook! 

I received a copy of this book to review, however all opinions are my own.
