I had high hopes for this book - it appeared to be slow cooker recipes inspired by international flavors. However, I wonder if these recipes were actually tested.

I am scared to try more recipes from this book. I tried a thai-inspired pork recipe, and it was only so-so - the recipe called for way too much peanut butter for my taste.

I also tried a tamale pie. Maybe a crust was supposed to form or something, but it didn't so instead the cornmeal ended up mixed in with the other ingredients which made the dish look very unappetizing and gave it a gross texture.

There are also a lot of chili recipes (which I guess is to be expected for a slow cooker book), but I didn't try those... other slow cooker books have similar chili recipes, so there was nothing innovative in that chapter.

Hopefully you will have better luck with this book than I did. But, as I said, I am scared to try more.
