Publisher's Weekly Review

In the worthy latest addition to the Fix-It-and-Forget-It series, Comerford, along with a handful of contributors, offers 150 easy slow cooker recipes for all tastes and occasions. Although she fudges a little on her five-ingredient rule (spices, water, accompaniments like pasta or rice, and optional additions don't count), Comerford offers an impressive span of reliable dishes the can be created with a minimum of fuss. Though some recipes feel unnecessary (Comerford spends four hours preparing a gluten-free Chex Mix in a slow cooker when a microwave version takes less than 10 minutes), most of the selections are worth the wait-like a rich butternut squash soup; a spicy beef roast; chicken cacciatore; raspberry balsamic pork chops; pears in ginger sauce; and sage turkey thighs. Ingredients are easily sourced, preparation is a snap, and readers with dietary restrictions will appreciate the book's recommendations for salt-free, gluten-free, and fat-free variations, when applicable. Nutritional information is also provided for each dish. This is another solid, go-to cookbook in the stalwart series. (Jan.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.


Booklist Review

Blogger and prolific author of the Fix-It and Forget-It series of slow-cooker cookbooks, Comerford has built a brand franchise based on her aspirations as a mom and professional, and her limited availability which means zero time to cook. This iteration of the series focuses on healthy quick meals requiring five ingredients or fewer. (Spices, water, optional ingredients, and serving-suggestion items do not count.) Every dish enumerates nutritional information, prep and cook times, and the ideal size of slow cooker for the job, all packaged with a quality photograph. Selections are fairly pedestrian, ranging from oatmeal in many forms, split pea with ham soup, and chili to beef pot roast and applesauce. Occasional creativity pops up in contributions from outside (and credited) home chefs. Back-of-book material includes metric-equivalent measurements.--Barbara Jacobs Copyright 2018 Booklist
