Gluten-Free Holiday Gifts: The Everything Gluten-Free Slow Cooker Cookbook

I've been using a slow cooker for about a year now. I've made approximately three dishes in it. Bone broth, soup, and apple sauce. 

Over and over. 

It never occurred to me how many other dishes I could make. Dishes like: Gluten-Free Millet Bread, Classic Italian Risotto and Blueberry French Toast Casserole. 

When I received a review copy of The Everything Gluten-Free Slow Cooker Cookbook from Carrie Forbes of Ginger Lemon Girl, I learned that all of these dishes and more are possible. All gluten-free. All made with minimal fuss. All in a slow cooker. (Obviously.)

The Classic Italian Risotto has been my favorite so far. Rich and creamy, with a hint of Italian herbs. A perfect side dish that went so quickly I never got a photo! Many of the recipes in this cookbook use dairy, but I can tell you from experience that they were easy to adapt using dairy-free substitutes. My only problem now is that I gave away my old slow cooker when I moved out of my apartment. Guess I'll have to buy a new one when I get to my next permanent landing spot. I have so many more recipes to try!

On my must-try list? 

  • Eastern North Carolina Cheesy Grits Casserole
  • Crustless Quiche Lorraine
  • Apple and Sweet Potato Casserole
  • Carrot Nutmeg Pudding 
The Everything Gluten-Free Slow Cooker Cookbook is the perfect holiday gift for the gluten-free foodie in your life. And if he/she doesn't have a slow cooker? Well, wouldn't it be so nice to find a brand new slow cooker and slow cooker cookbook with your holiday gifts? 

Signed copies available from Ms. Carrie herself here.  
Also available at Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com

I would love to be able to make homemade doughnuts, like the store bakery kind, gluten free or buy them somewhere for fun.

I've been thinking a lot about Christmas comfort foods, and I would love to find a way to make a low-starch gluten-free spritz cookie.

Oh wow! Would I love to win this...in ten years of being gluten free, I've never gotten around to getting an actual cookbook, just bread books.
I would love to see pop tarts...
croissant, and something with the texture of grapenuts for cereal, all g/f!

Thanks for doing this great giveaway!

I would love to be able to make a crusty, perfect gluten-free veggie pot pie. I have yet to make it taste like a traditional one.

It's not really in the realm of home cooking, but I would like some cereals to be gluten-free. It gets kind of boring only having Chex. I used to love cereal (all kinds) and now the selection is so limited. Probably better off though. LOL They aren't usually very healthy. :)

My favorite gluten filled comfort food is sourdough bread. I could eat it every day and lots of it and never get tired of it. Gluten free versions are a distant substitute. Thank you for the awesome giveaway. Slow cookers are fantastic and I need to use mine more!

Mac and cheese with a little crunch (used to be bread crumbs sprinkled on top)! Mmmmm!

My favorite comfort foods are soups (Chicken Noodle, Pasta e Fagioli) and hot cereals, so any gluten-free varieties of those would be great.

It's not a crockpot food that I want to learn to make gluten free. The one I want to learn the most is bread! A good one! I will get better at it. But, I need many more idea's for other foods as well. I love using the crock pot. I have 3 of them. lol
