The Everything Gluten-Free Slow Cooker Cookbook

I love to read cookbooks!  I especially love to read them when they are written by someone that I have chatted with over the years about all things gluten-free.  The Everything Gluten-Free Slow Cooker Cookbook is one awesome cookbook written by Carrie Forbes of the Ginger Lemon Girl blog.  Carrie has put together a wonderful resource for all things gluten-free, with a plethora of recipes that can be made in your slow cooker!

The cookbook begins with the basics of the gluten-free diet.  What is safe, what isn’t, baking ingredients, pantry makeover and cross-contamination concerns.  Great information not only for those newly diagnosed, but for veterans as well. If slow cooking is new to you, the next section will answer any questions or concerns that you may have.  I know when I first began using my slow cooker I was very concerned about the food not being heated to a high enough temperature, especially if raw meat was involved.  I now know that there are precautions that must be taken, but if done correctly, the food is perfectly safe.

Slow Cooker 101: Recipes is a section chock full of basic recipes, including broths, roasts, stews, granola, applesauce and much more.  Then comes the good stuff – recipes for everything you could possibly think of:

  • Breakfasts
  • Appetizers
  • Soups, Stews & Chilis
  • Casseroles and Gluten-Free Pasta Dishes
  • Poulty
  • Beef, Lamb & Pork
  • Holiday Recipes
  • Kid-Friendly Meals
  • Five Ingredients or Fewer
  • Gluten-Free Breads & Desserts
  • Beverages

I never had any idea that some of the recipes in this book could be made in a slow cooker.  Bread?  French Toast?  Omelettes?  I love the variety and creativity that shines through in each and every section of this cookbook.  Recipes that are on my list to make in the very near future are:

  • Shrimp Risotto
  • Tamale Pie (loved this dish as a child – can’t wait to try it in the slow cooker)
  • Butternut Squash and Walnuts with Vanilla
  • Vegetable Stew with Cornmeal Dumplings
  • Easy North Caroline Cheesy Grits Casserole
  • Orange Chicken
  • Old Fashioned Chocolate Cobbler
  • Crustless Apple Pie
  • One-Pot Spaghetti and Meatballs
  • Pizza Pasta

The Everything Gluten-Free Slow Cooker Cookbook can be found on Amazon.com for $8.74 right now or Barnes and Noble.com for the same price.  What is your favorite dish to make in the slow cooker?
