This cookbook provided mealtime solutions made in the slow cooker, where one-pot meals come together with minimal effort. Slow cooking can be a challenge for those who eat gluten free since many thickeners are off-limits, but this cookbook offers tips and recipes to make slow cooking accessible once again.
This book takes slow cooking beyond dinner with a variety of recipes for every meal of the day. Appetizers, side dishes, and five ingredient recipes add versatility to the everyday menu. Kid-friendly meals, holiday recipes, and breads and desserts take slow cooking to a new level with approachable yet innovative recipes for the traditional slow cooker. With two chapters of advice for adjusting to a gluten free lifestyle and techniques for successful slow cooking, there's something here for cooks of all levels of expertise.
Here are a couple of other good books I can recommend if you're trying to do gluten free:

I rediscovered slow cooking last fall and fell in love with it over the winter. I got a Proctor-Silex 33043 4-Quart Slow Cooker (!!) in late fall and it got me back into it. Later I got a 360 Cookware Gourmet Slow Cooker to review. It's nice but not 0+ nicer than the Proctor Silex. I think some recipes tasted a tiny bit better in the expensive one but I'd recommend saving that money for excellent ingredients. But that's background. Pardon my digression and back to the cook book!
I got the Everything Gluten-Free Slow Cooker Cookbook because I'm living gluten-free (mostly) and the leg of lamb and the lamb with garlic, lemon and rosemary sounded great. But there is so much more. Next I went with the Yankee Pot Roast, then the BBQ Western Ribs and Mexican Port Roast... And that's just the beef lamb and pork chapters. You don't have to be living gluten-free to find a lot to like in this cookbook! For for anyone living gluten-free it's a recipe treasure trove.
In the last year I've tried way less than half the recipes. Not all of the recipes appeal to me which isn't surprising. It's nice that so many DO. There is a lot in this cookbook with enough variety for almost anyone. Best of all it's a great starting point to experiment.
Many other slow cooker cookbooks target 6 quart big family slow cookers. I like how book's recipes are mostly sized for a 4 quart like mine or smaller. This is great for folks living alone, couples or small families. Bigger isn't always better!
Here in New England slow cooking is more of a winter thing for me. Thinking about it there is a lot to like with slow cooking in the summer too. After all, what could be better for a care-free summer than care-free slow cooking while you are having fun outside?
The Everything Gluten-Free Slow Cooker Cookbook helped me rediscover the joy of slow cooking and get out of a culinary rut. For that and some very tasty recipes I'm giving it 5 stars.
I hope this helps someone!
UPDATE Mar 16, 2017:
It's been about 2 years since I got the Everything Gluten-Free Slow Cooker Cookbook. I tried most of the appealing recipes and not been once disappointed. It's been fun to experiment too - for me recipes, after the first successful meal, become more a starting point for experimentation and embellishment
It's been fun but there is a possible downside: I've gone up a good dress size since I got this cook book. Depending on your point of view that could be either an endorsement or a warning!
But seriously... I've been very pleased and during the winters this is my most used cookbook. If you are gluten-free and an avid slow-cooker this a good purchase.,I bought this as a gift for my mother who needs new recipes for her gluten free diet. The recipes in it are simple, easy to make, and look like things you would actually like to eat. The ingredients are mostly things that you can find at your local grocery store. I think this is a great book for people who don't have a lot of time or desire to cook but still like to eat things that have flavor and are healthy,,I have a 6 quart slow cooker, and many of these recipes are designed for 2.5 and 4 quarter slow cookers. These recipes sound so good that I'm going to head to the store and get a smaller slow cooker today. I love that there's such a variety of dishes. Already, I'm planning on making spiral glazed ham, curried lentils, lamb tagine, chocolate cobbler, Tuscan potato, kale and sausage soup, eggs florentine, crustless quiche lorraine... the list goes on.,I like this book very much. It is easy to use and has a great variety of recipes. While it is true that many of the recipes contain too much salt, sugar, and/or fat, at least there is nutrition information. It is easy to make adjustments. Some of the recipes have alternatives included. There are quite a few that are healthy just as they are. The ones I have tried so far have been very tasty. I love making bread in the slow cooker. I cook on the weekends and put things in the freezer - it's so great to have homemade gf meals ready anytime! The recommendation of using aluminum cans to bake bread isn't so good in my opinion, so I use glass ramekins and a 6 quart oval crockpot. Perfect bread every time!,My husband has Celiac and because of both of our work hours I use my crockpot a lot. We both like basic foods with not too many fancy ingredients, and this book totally fit the bill! Actually we tried it from the library first but there were so many recipes that looked appealing that is why we bought the book.
