America's Test Kitchen - Great Recipes to Adapt to Gluten Free

We often talk about the America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook which we love.  We found another version from the America's Test Kitchen team specifically for slow cookers and we think we hit another gold mine for easily adaptable recipes.  The book is called America's Test Kitchen Slow Cooker Revolution.

Amanda's mom introduced us to the America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook pre-Celiac.  In general this is a great cookbook.  A lot of the recipes are easily adaptable to be gluten free recipes, and most are naturally gluten free which always makes things easier.  When ever they ask for flour, we simply substitute with Bob's Red Mill All Purpose Gluten Free Flour.  But we are certain you can use any gluten free flour blend you have in your pantry.

What's great about these books is that the instructions are laid out clearly so anyone can prepare the recipe.  Not only are the instructions clear, but they have pictures, not just of the final products, but preparation methods as well.

As well part of America's Test Kitchen's recipe writing process is finding out the best way to prepare an item. They talk about several ways they try to prep an item, and show you the best way, and often with pictures. Often in a recipe it will tell you to turn to a different page to show you how to prepare a certain item.  As an example, for our Gluten Free Buffalo Chicken Fingers, they go through the proven and most effective way of coating the chicken that works so well for this recipes and others.

We recently purchased the Slow Cooker Revolution cookbook, and although we have only tried one recipe so far, we were not disappointed.  All of this, simply reaffirms the usefulness of the America's Test Kitchen series.
