    This was another one of my "so glad I grabbed it" deals out of book bub! My only sadness is that I didn't grab it in print (and may still do so). Author offered a nice variety of recipes in several courses, such as: Soups Mains, including vegetarian and/or meatless Beans and grains Desserts Breakfasts While some recipes have crossed over from other cooking for two books I have, most I haven't seen before. I have not had the opportunity to try any of the recipes yet, so I can't judge cooking times excep This was another one of my "so glad I grabbed it" deals out of book bub!

I have not had the opportunity to try any of the recipes yet, so I can't judge cooking times except to say that they seem awfully long for the number of servings. They are the same as some of my recipes serving a larger amount of people. My other cooking for 2 slow cooker books normally go 6 hours and that is at the longest. Average is 3-4 hours. What I loved most about this book was the nutritional information. Not just limited to light recipes, this helps me with weight loss and just having a general idea of how many calories I am putting into my body. WELL worth the $2.99 I paid for it.

    I’m a novice to slow cooking and wanted to dabble in it to simplify my life and reduce my dining out. However, most recipes make 6 or more servings and it’s just me. Thankfully, this book came across Bookbub at the perfect time. I really appreciated the introductory chapters which explained how slow cooking works and gave suggestions for choosing the correct slow cooker for you. I also appreciate the nutritional information for each recipe.

I also appreciate the nutritional information for each recipe. These are a huge help as I strive to manage type two diabetes with diet. I’m now armed and ready to jump into the world of slow cooking? My first task - choosing a recipe to try, which will be hard because of all the delicious sounding choices.

    I waited a long time to receive this title from inter library loan and was disappointed when it finally arrived. The receipts were not appealing tome. So if quickly skimming the recipes is reading it I read it and found no inspiration.

    Perfect for two person household or just when you want a smaller portion for crockpot cooking. There are a variety of recipes: broths, sauces & condiments; soups, stews and chili's; beef, lamb & pork; poultry; seafood; meatless meals (this would be a dinner); beans & grains; vegetables & sides; breakfasts; and desserts. The tips for cleaning your crockpot, measures, and substitutions will help anyone in the kitchen. I've added several recipes to my monthly rotation.

    Good recipes. Flavorful - just shy of awesomely flavorful like Slow Cooker Revolution, but that often has a lot more prep work. Unique on trend recipes that are made with easily located ingredients if you don't already have them. That being said, easy prep time. Most recipes require a max of 15 minutes of prep work. Good portions. I often actually had enough for 3-4 meals.
