February's Cookbook Review Preview

Gluten Free Slow Cooking: Over 250 Recipes of Wheat-Free Wonders for the Electric Slow Cooker
by Ellen Brown

Celiac disease shouldn’t hold you back from the diversity of cooking! Whether you are strictly wheat-free, or just watching your diet, this book is the first of its kind, specializing in gluten-free slow cooking. Ellen Brown, the author of the highly acclaimed Complete Idiot’s Guide to Slow Cooker Cooking and Gluten Free Christmas Cookies, has created more than 150 new and original recipes for the first book to meet the needs of anyone suffering from gluten intolerance.

I picked up this particular cookbook because I have been meaning to use my slow cooker more, but usually can't be bothered.  And so it sits, under the counter, waiting to be used.  It's a nice slow cooker, though nothing fancy.  We received it as a shower gift from someone I worked with at the time, almost seven years ago.  So there are certainly more up to date models on the market, but I still think mine is cute.  I'm hoping this book will put it to good use. 

The second reason I picked up this book is because it is written by a well known author of cookbooks, Ellen Brown, including one devoted entirely to gluten free Christmas cookies.  Although I am familiar with her cookbooks, I have never owned one or tried her recipes.  This is my chance to remedy that, and I'm hoping it goes well. 

The book already has a few things going for it.  The price was reasonable, at under $20.  There are photographs of every recipe, which I love, and the recipes themselves look delicious.
