Fab Blog From A gluten-free Crockpot Goddess

Recommended Posts

I've seen this link once or twice on the forum already, but I decided it deserves a thread of its own because it just rocks that much!

This woman's 2008 New Year's resolution was to use the CrockPot every single day for a year, no repeats-- and her family is gluten-free! She does a lot of experimental stuff, and I've found tons of thing I want to try already. She also has a great sense of humor in her writing. :lol:

A new gluten-free CrockPot recipe every single day?! It's my personal dream come true.

Click here to check it out!!!

--My mother has Celiac Disease, dx'ed by Positive Blood Tests and Biopsy. Diagnosed Sarcoidosis 6/08.

--Myself, Gluten-free since 8/07

Thanks for the complement about the blog! I am excited about it this week 'cause I have 2 excuses to make fancy birthday cakes. I'm going to add photos and recipes for them after I bake them. Let me know when you try the Satay sauce, I was really happy with it and particularly on the bean thread noodles. I didn't add any additional spicy stuff to it, but my hubby added a lot of ground red pepper to his and he said it was good that way...just in case you like it hot!

I'm going to have to get the crock pot out and try a few meals in it in the next few weeks. I sort of forget about it in the summer and use it a lot in the winter!

Me too, she is really phunny! :P

I actually like to use the crockpot even more in the summer, because it doesn't heat up the whole kitchen like the oven does, AND I'm usually a lot busier in the summer.

I'm making one of her recipes for tonight . . . Cream Cheese Chicken (May 23rd Recipe). I think it looks fabulous!! The kids will probably turn their noses up at it because they've never "seen" it before. Might have a chance since there are no visible vegetables. :lol:

definitely agree with you on this one too! so much nicer. my mother in law and i were just talking about how you can make baked potatoes in the crock (she didn't believe it could be done, i showed her this blog). some great ideas for cool kitchens!!

WOW! I got a Crockpot for Christmas and love it but I typically only use it in the fall and winter because I associate it with heavy, warm, winter meals, but not any longer. I can't wait to try several of these recipes!

Whole chicken doesn't work so well. It cooks fine, but it's totally pale, and mine didn't have the infusion of flavor I was hoping for. I did cook it on high, so maybe a longer, slower cook would work better.

I'm in! Anything I can do easily and don't have to think about too much is great. I can't believe anyone could think to do this. My husband will also be happy that I am cooking again.

Thanks!
