I absolutely COULD NOT WAIT to review this cookbook!  The title has my two favorite cookbook words in it,  “Gluten-Free” and “Slow Cooker”!  Or is that four words?  Anyway, I knew I had to get my hands on a copy!  I was not disappointed!

The EVERYTHING Gluten-Free Slow Cooker Cookbook” is written by Carrie S. Forbes, who has been gluten-free since 2007.  She writes the very popular blog,!  I adore Carrie’s writing style and her no-nonsense approach to gluten-free living.

With autumn upon us and the holidays right around the corner, I am always looking for easy meals to feed my family and any company that happens to trickle in.  This cookbook delivers.  There are also many recipes that would be great to make to bring along to any “bring a dish to share” gatherings!

My favorite chapter in this cookbook is “Kid-Friendly Meals”.    I am certainly going to try these out on my family ASAP!


  • One-Pot Spaghetti & Meatballs
  • Pizza Pasta
  • Cheesy Potato Wedges
  • French Fry Casserole


Another great chapter is titled, “Five Ingredients or Fewer”.  Brilliant!  Some of the recipes you can find here are:


  • Super Easy Chili
  • Pinto Bean-Stuffed Peppers
  • Pesto Chicken


There is even a chapter on “Beverages”!  These would be perfect for holiday brunches.


  • Maple Pumpkin Spice Lattes (YUM!)
  • Salted Caramel Mocha Lattes
  • Slow Cooker Chai Tea


Doesn’t all of this sound delicious?  Wouldn’t you love a copy of this cookbook for your very own?  Of course you would!!!
