Holiday Gift Guide 2010: Fix-It and Forget-It Christmas Cookbook Review and Giveaway (Ends 12/23) CLOSED

Thursday, December 09, 2010 Posted by Dina N

The Fix-It and Forget-It Christmas Cookbook is the latest addition to Phyllis Pellman Good's series of bestselling slow cooker cookbooks. Since many people host parties and family gatherings between November and January, the book could not have come at a better time.

A slow cooker can help save time and effort - with the right recipes, of course! The Fix-It and Forget-It Christmas Cookbook has 600 holiday recipes to choose from. Just as the other Fix-It and Forget-It cookbooks, the Christmas cookbook is a collection of recipes submitted by real people - all tried and true. The sections of this cookbook cover appetizers, snacks, breakfast, brunch, soups, main dishes, desserts and more. Although this is a holiday cookbook, the recipes can be used throughout the year, not just around Christmas.

The Fix-It and Forget-It Christmas Cookbook follows the same format as the original Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook that I reviewed a few months ago. I am a visual person when it comes to cooking, and I like to see what the end result should look like. With the exception of three very mouthwatering photos at the front of the book, you will not find the colorful pictures featured in many other cookbooks. Of course, if all 600 recipes had illustrations, the book would have been thousands of pages long - rather unrealistic for a cookbook. Still, I would have liked a few more photos since this is a festive cookbook, and presentation matters - especially when I am entertaining.

If you are looking for a little inspiration about what to cook this holiday season, you might find it in the Fix-It and Forget-It Christmas Cookbook. It would make a nice gift or a great addition to your cookbook library - especially if you love using a slow cooker.

The Fix-It and Forget-It Christmas Cookbook is available in three formats: hardcover, paperback, and with plastic comb binding. Find out more about it and the other cookbooks in the series here.

    One of my many favs was actually from the "Fix it and Forget it -Lightly" cookbook. It is the Greek Chicken by Judy Govotsus of Monrovia, MD.

    I added green olives, and we savored every bite.
