Fish begins with general guidelines on how to store, prepare, and cook fish, whether sauteing, frying, grilling, or smoking, and you will find easy-to-follow illustrations of such important basics as how to gut and fillet a fish. Fish also includes up-to-the-minute information on the health benefits of fish in our diet.

Crock Pot Cookbook: 440 Slow Cooker Recipes


Robert Wilson - 2010
    It was pretty obvious that people found something on the internet for free and put it on Amazon to sell, but for only 99 cents I figured there wasn't much to lose so I bought one. Turned out to be totally useless. There was no table of contents and there were two or three blank pages between each recipe. That meant a lot of clicking on the Kindle just to see what's there. I didn't bother trying to click through all the recipes - I was afraid I'd wear out my little clicker. Instead, I went to google and immediately found what people were downloading, a .pdf file with 470 recipes in alphabetical order. Hence "Artichoke Chicken and Olives" was next to "Artichoke and Cheese Dip" but if you want to browse all the chicken recipes you're out of luck. So I converted this .pdf file to something I could work with and proceeded to reorganize the recipes into categories and build a table of contents. Now if you've got a chicken sitting in your fridge screaming at you to do something before it gets too old you can go to the "Chicken and Turkey" section of the table of contents and scan through the titles or click on the first one and start glancing at the recipes until you find something that strikes your fancy. I also standardized the recipe formats and abbreviations and included a little information about converting the U.S. measurements for those of you that have advanced on to the metric system and now only use teaspoons for stirring your tea. Some of these recipes mention brand name products. If those products aren't available where you are you're just going to have to call me bad names and either wing it or try another recipe. There are plenty of recipes that only call for natural and/or fresh ingredients though. Revised: 30 August 2011
