Rated 5 out of 5 by from A hit at my house My son has a wheat intolerance and with a hectic schedule coming home to a healthy meal that is ready to go and tasty is wonderful. The food has been tasty and very easy to prepare. I have used her blog before and it is very handy to have a cookbook that is the best of the best. My only suggestion would be to take it to an office supply store and have them chop off the existing binding and put on a spiral binding so it will lay flat. I have done that with many of my cookbooks. The cost is small but it makes baking much easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DEEE-LISH! This cookbook deserves the high ratings it has received not only on this website, but on as well. I started with the Butternut Squash soup, which was really yummy and so easy to make. Plus, I haven't found a recipe yet that requires a visit to a specialty store - all the ingredients can be easily found at your local supermarket. AND, the recipes are healthy and gluten-free. Other recipes that I have marked to try include: Brown Sugar Chicken; Coq au Vin (imagine - in a slow cooker!); Apricot Chicken; White Bean and Apple Chili, etc. She includes a "Verdict" at the end of each recipe, noting what she liked about the recipe - which I found very reassuring when trying to decide what to make for dinner. I also liked that she had made a year's worth of slow cooker recipes, and these were the best ones that made it into the book. The one drawback to the cookbook is that there are no pictures/photographs. So for those of you who like pics, you may be disappointed. However, she notes in the book that there are tons of photos on her website (the cost was too much for her to include pics in the book). In my vast cookbook collection (I - gulp - think I have around 300 cookbooks), this is easily one of the best slow cooker cookbooks (I have 10) I have and I know I'll be using it regularly.
