Fix-It and Forget-It is the series of cookbooks responsible for getting slow cookers out of cupboards and back onto kitchen counters, selling more than 11 million cookbooks since the series launched.
Now, after years of developing and testing hundreds of recipes, Stage 2 of the successful series has launched with Fix-It and Forget-It NEW Cookbook, in full color, by New York Times bestselling author, Phyllis Good.

Phyllis Good believes that slow cookers are helpful appliances for both beginner and experienced cooks alike. The recipes in the book that require very little prep time or skills are labeled “Quick and Easy.” (Those recipes even have their own Index!). The unmarked recipes are a little more complex, but they aren’t hard to prepare.
Fix-It and Forget-It NEW Cookbook is a big, full-color, useful cookbook, which, in addition to recipes, offers:
“Your Slow-Cooker Guidebook—Things You’ll Be Happier Knowing!”
Answers to “FAQs”, such as: Which slow cooker is best for me? How hot and fast does my slow cooker cook? How can I keep foods from overcooking?
Simple tricks for cooking more delicate foods in a slow cooker, such as pasta, chicken breasts, and fish.
Charts of safe cooking temperatures for meats, and approximate slow-cooker temperatures.
“Your slow cooker is capable of a lot more than you might have imagined,” Ms. Good emphasizes. “Remember, it works for you!”
