The first thing that struck me about this book was how comprehensive it is. Carrie Forbes covers what to look for in a slow cooker, recommended sizes, suggestions for care, a wide variety of strategies, and also just about every food I could think of to put in one, plus a few more. Oh! and they're all gluten-free!
I've been a fan of the slow cooker for as long as I can remember. I use them year-round and own several. Still, I'd never thought of salmon fillets or blackberry preserves as options for my trusty Crock Pot. For all these years, the only thing I have really done with mine, aside from hot cider in fall, is long, slow cooking. And I must confess, my favorite recipe in this book so far, Dijon Beef Roast, is one of those longer-cooking recipes. What can I say? I just love recipes like this with moist, tender meat and the possibility of leftovers for lunch the next day.
Still, I have had such fun playing with Ms. Forbes' recipes that take only two hours. I have never done that before. It's created a whole new way of looking at these little machines. Now I want all sizes. I think I may have to order more.
Of course, many of us for whom gluten-free is crucial, are really in for another treat. It's so nice to have all these options, breakfasts, desserts, breads, and main dishes of all sorts, that are safe for us and won't cost a week's wages.
This cookbook provided mealtime solutions made in the slow cooker, where one-pot meals come together with minimal effort. Slow cooking can be a challenge for those who eat gluten free since many thickeners are off-limits, but this cookbook offers tips and recipes to make slow cooking accessible once again.
This book takes slow cooking beyond dinner with a variety of recipes for every meal of the day. Appetizers, side dishes, and five ingredient recipes add versatility to the everyday menu. Kid-friendly meals, holiday recipes, and breads and desserts take slow cooking to a new level with approachable yet innovative recipes for the traditional slow cooker. With two chapters of advice for adjusting to a gluten free lifestyle and techniques for successful slow cooking, there's something here for cooks of all levels of expertise.

What I love even more about this book is that it's perfect for ANYONE! Whether you need to be gluten-free or not (which we are, so added bonus!)the book is an amazing tool! The ingredients are not things that are difficult to find, which is often the case with gluten-free replacements. If you are not gluten-free, it's easy enough to use regular pasta, flour or bread and have an amazing dish.
Whether you know how to cook or are just starting, this book is perfect! I highly recommend it and plan on buying copies for friends and family. Thank you, Carrie, for such a fun and useful kitchen tool!
