Fix-it and Forget-it Cookbook: Revised and Updated Fix-it and Forget-it Cookbook: Revised and Updated

by Phyllis Pellman Good

Book Reviews

"The Fix-It and Forget-It series is the country's bestselling crockpot cookbook series. . . . The six books in the series compile edited versions of recipes contributed by everyday cooks and have sold more than nine million copies. 2010 marks the series' 10th anniversary."
--Publishers Weekly, August 31, 2009

"The author who came in second to Rachael Ray in total foodie sales was Phyllis Pellman Good, who does not have a TV show."
--Summary of 2007 Bestsellers, Publishers Weekly, March 24, 2008

"One reason why the books are so popular is that they aren't intended for folks who dabble in cooking as a hobby or a whim. . . . 'The audience that I have in mind is those who have to cook every day of the week,' says Good."
--Los Angeles Times, January 7, 2009

"Good's books have sold more in the United States than the combined works of popular Food Network hosts Ina Garten, Giada De Laurentiis, and Jamie Oliver."
--The New York Times front-page feature, May 8, 2006

"'One of the losses in our lives is that it's so hard to sit down at the dinner table, night after night, and have parents and children eating together,' says Phyllis Pellman Good. . . . 'With the slow cooker, you can prepare food early and bring everyone together at the table,' she says. 'It helps immensely.'"
--The Associated Press, December 26, 2008
