So here's what I've been doing...



This is the reason you haven't seen many recipes on GLG in the past 6 months... I've been a bit preoccupied. If you've read any of my meal plans in the past year you know I like my slow cookers.

And the folks at Adams Media picked up on that too. I'm thrilled to be writing my first cookbook for them! The recipes are coming along. I have a band of faithful readers and friends who are helping me test, test, test recipes.

To say I'm proud of this book, would be an understatement. I've wanted to write a book for years. A few years into blogging gluten free.. I REALLY wanted to write a cookbook, but I honestly didn't know where to start.

This process has been hard. It's brought tears, frustration, and absolute joy. I'm really proud of myself for making this book happen. And more importantly, I'm thankful for my friends who have inspired me, uplifted me, and been tough critics when necessary.

I'll share some more details very soon, but seeing the book actually listed on Amazon today is an incredibly good feeling.

Have a great week!!

  5. Congratulations! Wishing you the best. Actually holding a copy of the book for the first time and then seeing it on the shelves at a bookstore are also experiences you will never forget.

  6. Congratulations, it is a labor of love, hard work, and great determination to write a book of any sort, but especially a cookbook. I'm in that process myself and it is harder than I ever imagined, though I am confident the reward will far surpass the rest. Happy for you, it must be a great relief and wonderful feeling.

  17. The book sounds good. I've never really used a slow cooker before, but your pictures on the site always look so good. I'll have to check it out, and will definately give it a +1 on google plus and a link from our FB page.

  18. I got behind on my reader and am just seeing this. Congratulations! We need to do more slow cooking! Eating this way takes so much time to prep and cook... gluten-free slow cooking is genius :)
