The 5-Ingredient Fresh & Easy Cookbook offers over 90 recipes for busy cooks. My favorite part of this book is that it included a short list of easy to find ingredients along with simple preparation steps. The recipes also include tips and/or ingredient swaps. This cookbook is definitely geared toward those who are interested in avoiding processed foods while not spending all day in the kitchen. I marked several that I felt my family would enjoy which is always a sign of a good cookbook. I look forward to putting it to good use!
Fresh Flavors for the Slow Cooker promises reinvented meals. Some of the recipes included ingredients geared toward less than adventurous eaters. I found many of them had multiple steps. When I think of slow cooker meals, I want to use mainly just the slow cooker. I do not mind a few recipes with prep work, but these recipes just do not fit in with my life at present. That does not make it a bad cookbook. It is simply not what I need at this point in time.
