My thoughts:
I do not own this book yet but I am thinking seriously about buying it. A friend recommended Stephanie's blog on Facebook. I've made three of her recipes so far and I love that I can put things together and walk away until later. I feel like I am always making the same thing in our crock pot so to have some different ideas is wonderful. The drawback for me is that there are a lot of things I don't like and my kids are somewhat picky. I wish I had some idea of what recipes are in the book so I could see if they are ones that would appeal to my family. I guess next time I am out at a bookstore I will have to look for it and flip through to get an idea of whether it is worth it to me or not.
