5 Ingredients or Less Slow Cooker Cookbook

Additional information

Publication Date: November 1, 2015 • ISBN: 0544284224

Sometimes recipes can seem overwhelming and daunting when there is a long laundry list of ingredients. I get it.
This book is my fourth published slow cooker cookbook and I have simplified the recipes so that anyone can make them — whether you are limited on time, patience, or a mixture of both — you can have a delicious and family-pleasing meal with hardly any prep work.

Like all my recipes, the ones included in this cookbook are gluten free due to a family allergy. If you are not gluten free, simply ignore my notes or file them away in case you are ever in need. Thank you to Tara Donne for the food photography!

What People are Saying

  • As usual, author comes through. Simple, quick recipes for a busy day that she has tested on her own family. If you think you can’t cook, or if you need something quick to throw in the slow cooker before you leave for work in the morning, this is the book for you. For more complicated recipes (but still not crazy difficult) I also love her other cookbooks. She doesn’t require bizarre ingredients and she avoids all the prep work some cookbooks require before you put the food in the slow cooker.

  • Great cookbook for someone lazy like me. I hate grocery shopping, I hate cooking and I hate ordering out. Now I could probably live off of all of the recipes in this book. I even bought myself a bigger crock pot to get on the “freezing stuff” bandwagon. Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes. I feel grown up.

  • This book is amazing and it’s become my most-used cookbook. I use it 2-3 times a week at least. There is a really good variety of recipes, and I love that they’re only 5 ingredients. There are no complicated steps. The only thing you have to do is sometimes brown meat. I also love that very few of these recipes used canned soup mixes. There are fancier recipes, but a lot of them are very budget-friendly, too. So glad I ordered this one!

  • I love LOVE love this book. I’ve made 5 or 6 recipes already & every one was excellent. I bought another slow cooker recipe book that had 16 or more ingredients and was a PIA to do in a busy morning. This book hits it out of the park. Fast prep and yummy.
