    One of my favorite cookbooks that I use regularly! Loaded with lots of great recipes to try.

    Oh my fucking god, I love these cookbooks. They take recipes from, like, a 1980s call-in radio show, or something, and bind and print and put them forward, untested, with no comments, no advice, and almost no organization. Its glorious! There is something so female about it, and I love it. Stephanie, from Chagrin Falls, did you put Manwich sauce in your kidney beans, *and* Velveeta, *and* hot sauce? A little liquid smoke? Fuck Yeah You Did, Sister, and I love you for it. Oh my fucking god, I love these cookbooks.

    A revised and updated version with 700 recipes. This version has more "words of wisdom" interspersed with the recipes and a few more recipes. If you haven't read the earlier versions, just read this one.

    Skimmed through it a couple of times. A LOT of canned or processed food is required to do nearly all of these recipes. Likewise, ground beef seems to be a huge staple and Im not big of that either. Lastly, It says 700 recipes but so many of them are one ingredient off from being the same.

    A lot of the recipes seem to be for slow cooker smaller than 6 qt.

It’s a New York Times Bestseller, and it’s no wonder. I will never get rid of this cookbook! It’s been updated since I bought this on a whim at Sam’s Club for a little more than $10.00. During a very busy stage in life with little time for meal preparation, my slow cooker was a life-saver, and not just for Sunday dinners but for every occasion. When the day is going to be a busy one, a crockpot meal is the way to go. It’s easy and most recipes are hearty and filling and I didn’t have to worry about burning anything. These recipes were compiled from real favorites from avid slow cooker users. You get to see the name of the contributor and where they’re from at the top of each recipe. Many of them are Amish or Mennonite recipes, so you know they are good! Not only was it a help to me to get some meals started, but it also educated me! As I look back on my cooking skills now (10 years removed from being a newlywed), the book has helped me learn how to make a big hunk of meat taste good. And for that, I’m eternally grateful. Fix-it and Forget-it is different from most cookbooks in that many recipes use very similar ingredients that it almost seems redundant. More than 700 recipes from appetizers, breakfast food, breads, soups, main dishes, side dishes, beverages, and desserts. It seemed odd to me at first to have five or ten recipes for beef stew and thirty recipes for baked beans. How many ways can you make stew? Well apparently, there are several ways. The author helps you out by grouping similar recipes together. There have been many times that I didn’t have much in the pantry, but I knew a bit about how to throw the ingredients together because of this cookbook. So for me, when I’m searching for a recipe for the crockpot, I look for the ingredients I have on hand and go from there. Let’s say I have ground beef and some carrots, potatoes, tomato sauce, a can of beans and some other pantry basics. I look in the main dish section where the beef recipes are, and I would also look in the Soups & Stews & Chilis section. Then I’ll look to see what kinds of foods go well with those ingredients and in what portions. I look at what kinds of seasonings are used. I look for what kind of thickener is used, what kind of starch, etc. Often, my own recipe is not exactly like any one recipe in the book, but it’s a compilation of several. A HINT: To adjust amounts for your family size, just remember that a slow cooker works best when it is filled at least 3/4 of the way up. Most of the recipes in the book are for large slow cookers for large families. You could halve most of the recipes to fit in a medium sized crockpot, which is what I do for us often. Get the book and use it. The book comes in a Kindle version, but I really like my comb-binder edition. I’m planning to purchase the other editions as well. There’s one for diabetics, one for light-cooking, one that is just with 5-ingredients or less, and more. Definitely worth the money, and I don’t usually say that about cookbooks!

    I have used the original "Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook" for years. It is one of the most used cookbooks in my kitchen library. I jumped at the chance to be able to review the "Revised and Updated" version, because the first was a great cookbook. I was a little concerned, as I thought that the revisions would end up removing recipes or changing them to a more "healthy" and possibly less flavorful versions of those that made the original great. The "Revised and Updated" version is definitely worth I have used the original "Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook" for years. It is one of the most used cookbooks in my kitchen library.

I was a little concerned, as I thought that the revisions would end up removing recipes or changing them to a more "healthy" and possibly less flavorful versions of those that made the original great. The "Revised and Updated" version is definitely worth getting! After putting both the original and "Revised and Updated" books side by side and comparing them, the "Revised and Updated" wins hands down. There have been recipes eliminated, but only those that I found that were redundant or very similar. One hundred new recipes were added in their place. The "Revised and Updated" edition contains hints and tips that are wonderful, beautiful mouthwatering photos, and what I found really useful was how large of a crockpot to use. Many times, I had to move up to a larger one, because I underestimated the amount. Now no more guesswork! Another useful hint I really liked tells how to find out what temperature your slow cooker cooks at. Now, with this information, you will have the perfect dish instead of one that may come out underdone or overdone. I learned quite a bit from this book, plus all my favorite recipes like Pirate Stew (p44), Full-Flavored Beef Stew (p85) and Cherry Delight (p250) are still included. I have retired the original "Fix-It and Forget It Cookbook" and passed it on, replacing it with the "Revised and Updated" edition. It really is a better cookbook than the last! This is a must have for anyone that loves to come home to a good home cooked meal. I highly recommend it!!!

The revised and updated version contains the same recipes my family loves with an additional 100 recipes totaling 700 Slow Cooker recipes for those who love their crock-pots. Anyone who knows me is fully aware that I detest cooking, however, crock-pot cooking is foolproof and so quick and easy, especially following the recipes from Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook. In addition to adding more recipes, each recipe includes the prep time, cooking time, and ideal crock-pot size. Pellman also included tip pages for substitutions, using a crock-pot, measurement equivalents, necessary kitchen tools, helpful advise and a greatly improved index. I have yet to find a better cookbook than Good's Fix-It and Forget It Cookbook and I would not hesitate to recommend to everyone.

    I feel like I'm blaspheming something universally beloved but....bleh. I'm not militantly anti-processed-food, but there's something processed in almost every recipe, from the ever-present condensed soup to a disturbing amount of recipes calling for a can of pop. I mean, there's a baked beans recipe that calls for...a can of baked beans. And a queso dip recipe that calls for...condensed cheese soup and a jar of salsa (why not just buy a jar of queso dip?).

So it's not to my taste, but on a more positive note, the recipes all list cooker size, prep time vs. cooking time, and suggested side dishes, which is handy.

    Tons of recipes for just about any dish or ingredient you could envision. With three recipes to a page, this book is packed. The author also includes tips, equivalent measurements and substitute ingredients. None of these recipes are fancy or gourmet, but all are easy and meals that everyday people would enjoy. A great book to start with, or just to revitalize your current crock pot recipes. As is my request of all cookbooks, I would have loved a spiral binding and more photos!

    I love this cookbook! It was a gift for Christmas, and my aunt says it is her slow cook bible (and she is definitely the slow cooker queen!) I have made four recipes from it, and I must say I love it already! You can easily alter the recipes listed or just follow the instructions. And there are lots of varieties for all of your favorite foods. Also, there are vegetarian sections which I love! I'm going to try the french onion soup this weekend.

    Love this cookbook! I checked it out from my local library & it's definitely on my "to buy" list. Tons of simple recipes with ingredients you can actually find in a small grocery store. Highly recommended!!!

    Tons of quick and easy recipes but not many on my diet plan. Need more without cream soup, potatoes & rice. I guess it did quick crockpot recipes not healthy ones.

    A good cookbook but there's a lot of overlap of recipes with all the other Fix it and Forget it books. Buy the Big Fix it and Forget it book.
