Molly Makes $7 Slow Cooker Suppers Review by Maggi Beardsley

For those who are not familiar with e-books, you purchase the item and then download it onto your computer. You can view in on your computer or print it out. This e-book by Molly Green is Molly Makes $7 Slow Cooker Suppers. With over 140 recipes, it has sections for Stews and Soups, Beef, Poultry and Fish, Pork, Meatless, Sandwiches, Breakfasts, and Desserts as well as a Bonus Section. There is a handy index at the end too. These are recipes that people submitted and that were taste tested by a different group of people. Each recipe has a color photo of the meal and a breakdown of the cost of the meal. Sometimes there is a comment from someone who made the dish.

I knew that the slow cooker recipes would save me time in the kitchen. I hoped that some would be great tasting too. One thing that I was not expecting was that Molly Makes $7 Slow Cooker Suppers would be a home economics guide for my first grader. When I was wondering what to have for dinner, I had my daughter use the arrow key and find a picture of a meal that looked good to her. Then she had to write down the ingredients for our trip to the supermarket. She loved this activity. Now she could make dinner just like her big sister. It was wonderful knowing that any recipe my daughter chose I could afford to make, since everything was under $7 a meal.

We did find an occasional meal for which the meat prices in California were higher than those in the e-book. It was a reminder to us of how food prices differ in different regions of the United States.

All in all, Molly Makes $7 Slow Cooker Suppers is an e-book that fits mom's budget, dad's taste buds, and the younger children's desire to cook just like mom in the kitchen.
