I received the Fix-It and Forget-It Kids' Cookbook: 50 Favorite Recipes to Make in a Slow Cooker and immediately Robyn started flipping through it and checking out ingredients for things she'd like to make! Robyn, at 12, is probably on the top end of the age range to be labelled a kid, but honestly when I flipped through it, there were recipes that appealed to me too!
Fix-It and Forget-It Kids' Cookbook: 50 Favorite Recipes to Make in a Slow Cooker is filled with some classic kid friendly dishes like Mac and Cheese, taco filling, Alphabet soup and Caramel apples, and it also explores some great new additions to your kids future favorites. Some of those new favorites might include Broccoli Corn Bread, Red Hot Apple Cider, Pumpkin Pie Pudding and Italian Chicken Nuggets!
Beyond the recipes , there are great tips like how to measure, cooking abbreviations, an explanation of the equipment list and safety tips. My favorite thing, other than the recipes is a little page at the back of the book to record how your recipe turned out - called "My Cookbook Diary", which I think should be an addition to any cookbook on the market because it helps you record how the recipe turned out!

The book also includes serving suggestions on each page - like the Chunky Chili recipe that suggests topping each individual serving with 'your choice of guacamole, sour cream, shredded cheese, sliced olives, fresh diced tomatoes, tortilla chips, and onions'
If you have a child, 8 and older who has shown an interest in the kitchen and you have a slow cooker - this is a must have addition to your recipe shelf!
Fix-It and Forget-It Kids' Cookbook: 50 Favorite Recipes to Make in a Slow Cooker retails for $19.99 and is available from Amazon.com for just $13.59
