F09606 - "Slow Cooker & Family Recipes" & "Casseroles & One Dish Meals"
Don't waste your money.
Wish I had opened the box sooner so I could have returned these within the 30 days, even though I hate to return cookbooks. The only nice thing I can say about these is that the covers are cute. Even so, I won't waste the space on my bookcase shelves...donating these to charity.
Worst Cook Book EVER!!
Bought 2 sets of these at Christmas to give as gifts and thank God I opened one first. I could not believe it. Like the other reviewer said who would ever dream of returning a cook book? Well, I did also. Both went back as fast as the box was dropped at the front door. Don't waste your time or money!!
I found many recipes in the Casserole & One Dish Meals I can't wait to try. On page 196 the Mushroom & Cauliflower Cheese Casserole came out very good. I have made it a few more times and changed to mixed veggies instead of just cauliflower. I have yet to study the slow cooker book, but I will.
I never imagined I would ever return a cookbook. There is nothing good to say about these cookbooks. They are not suited for new cooks, seasoned cooks or any cooks in between. Like others, I bought it for the slow cooker meals and was very disappointed on how few were offered. I had bought these for an intended gift but after looking through them I quickly changed my mind. I'm not for hurting anyone's feelings but these books are simply subpar.
I must say I wish I had read reviews before I orderd these books. I really enjoy cookbooks..new ideas on favorites, new dishes and I just enjoy reading them. THAT SAID...this is not the case with these two books. I will be returning them. I ordered them as a gift and I am glad that I took the time to look over before I wrapped and gave, I sure would have been embarrassed! Definately not up to QVC usual standards. I agree that the slow cooker book was my main interest and that there are few real recipies that are for slow cookers in the collection. Bottom line...don't waste your time and money!
Worst cookbook ever
Bought and returned these books in the same week. Horrible recipes, not at all for any cook, beginner or advanced. Don't waste your money!!!
Not my best purchase
I agree with other reviewers, recipes seem to have far too many ingredients in many of the recipes. I too found maybe one or two recipes out of two books ... And I do cook a lot! I may keep one and give one away (hoping they find something interesting or useful). This one was a waste of money for me. They only got 2 stars because they were nicely bound other than that ... There was way more on-air hype given this than it merits.
I really could not find one recipe that I liked in these books.... :( the books looked so much better on tv.
Sorry I purchased
Looked interesting during presentation but when the books arrived and I looked through them I was very disappointed to find duplicate recipes in the two books. Very few recipes that I would think about trying... these are going back. Poor value.
Also, just for your information... the books do not include nutritional information. Please QVC state this in your presentations or online in the descriptions for any cookbooks (not just these). Lots of us need that information!
worst purchase ever
completely disappointed-maybe one recipe in each book useable
SLOW COOK ER & FAMILY RECIPIES
I BOUGHT AS A GIFT BUT LOOKED AT THE BOOK BEFORE I GAVE AWAY. IT HAS SOME REALLY NICE RECIPES IN IT. I KNOW MY DAUGHTER MIGHT START COOKING DIFFERENT MEALS WITH THESE RECIPES.
Slow Cooker & Family Recipes
There are too many ingredients needed for these recipes, and many not normally in my cupboard. Because of the amount of ingredients, it takes too much time for preparation. I don't care for recipes that call for unusual ingredients that have to be bought and only used once.
