Everyday Gluten-Free Slow Cooking: Cookbook Review and Giveaway | Rachel Begun, MS, RD

With the holidays behind us and (for most of the country) cold winter months ahead, it’s time to pull out the slow cooker to make warm, comforting foods.

Thankfully, there’s Everyday Gluten-Free Slow Cooking, by Kimberly Mayone and Kitty Broihier, MS,RD, as this collection of slow-cooked recipes will make it easier to get through the long winter.

Here’s what I love about this cookbook:

  • with the Breakfast and Brunch recipes, spend a few minutes at night putting the ingredients into a slow-cooker and voila…wake-up to a warm meal that is ready to go.  No more excuses for not getting the most important meal of the day in.  This chapter includes hot cereals, granolas, frittatas and other egg dishes, and delicious spreads for gluten free breads
  • the Appetizers and Snacks recipes can be enjoyed by all, so there is no need to make separate gluten free dishes when entertaining a crowd. These recipes will carry you through Sunday afternoons of football and warm nights in front of the fire

Parmesan Chex Mix

  • it wouldn’t be winter without Soups, Stews and Chili, and here there are 17 recipes to choose from
  • many don’t equate vegetarian fare with comfort food, but in the Vegetarian chapter that’s exactly what you’ll find, from black bean and lentil soups to chili, baked beans, risotto and polenta dishes
  • whole chapters are dedicated to Seafood, Poultry, Pork and Beef dishes that incorporate the flavors and traditions of a variety of ethnic cuisines

New England Fish Chowder

  • the Sweets chapter includes a unique selection of recipes, and several are made from healthful ingredients.  Some of the recipes that stand out to me include: vanilla poached pears, cinnamon-walnut stuffed apples, coconut rice pudding, and almond and amaranth pudding
  • the Quick and Easy Sides for Slow Cooking chapter is a great way to get your veggies in without long preparation time

    I would love to win the book Everyday Gluten-Free Slow Cooking. I purchased a new crock pot for my daughter and received one myself for Christmas. I eat gluten free and we are both determined to eat healthier and cook more at home.

    I would love the Cookbook. I am 51 years old and have been having problems with Abdominal pains and nausea. I have decided to go gluten free to see if this helps with my pain. Also after researching about gluten and wheat, I realize this it the way to go. I have a slow cooker that I really don’t know what to make in it. THis way I can eat gluten free with the slow cooker and eliminate my abdominal pains.
