Gluten-Free Book Giveaway EXTRAVAGANZA – The Everything Gluten-Free Slow Cooker Cookbook

Update: This giveaway is now closed and the winners have been notified. Thank you!

Welcome to the first day of the Gluten-Free Book Giveaway EXTRAVAGANZA! Every day this week, I will be sharing with you a wonderful gluten-free book, and give you a chance to win!

What could be better than that?

Today’s book is The Everything Gluten-Free Slow Cooker Cookbook by Carrie S. Forbes. Carrie is the genius behind the blog Ginger Lemon Girl. I’ve “known” (as in, we’ve never met face-to-face, but I’ve followed Carrie’s blog for several years and we’ve had multiple conversations online) Carrie for several years now, and I love her style. She’s a Southern girl, so there’s definitely a dose of comfort food in her repertoire. We also share the fun that comes with balancing a blog, healthy gluten-free cooking, and a full-time career. So when I heard that she was writing a gluten-free slow cooker cookbook, I was head over heels.

A slow cooker is something every busy cook should have in their arsenal. What’s better than dumping some ingredients in a slow cooker, turning it on, and leaving, only to return hours later to a meal? Of course, knowing just what to dump in and how can mean the difference between a so-so meal and an excellent one – and this book definitely is the way. For recipes from breakfast (think pull-apart cinnamon raisin biscuits) to main meals (lamb with garlic, lemon, and rosemary, perhaps?), to holidays (such as candied butternut squash), this book has it all.

I opted to make the Rotisserie Style Chicken (page 164). I generally roast a chicken about once a week and use it for two meals – one time as a main course, and the leftovers for salad, tacos, or enchiladas. I wanted to see if this version measured up.

Oh boy, it did! I’ve tried to cook chicken in the slow cooker before, only to find it dry and overcooked. Not this one – it was moist, tender, and flavorful. It was a simple, comforting main course, but also was perfect once deboned and used in another recipe. I love that I now have this reliable alternative to my usual roasting – especially when I am using the oven for other things, or am in a time crunch.
