I am so excited to be able to introduce the readers of Ditch the Wheat to my newest ebook, Real Food Slow Cooker Recipes! I have always been a huge fan of the slow cooker – it’s arguably my favorite and most-used kitchen tool – and this cookbook is a true testament to everything your slow cooker is capable of.
Readers of Ditch the Wheat are no strangers to the slow cooker – Carol’s Slow Cooker BBQ Ribs and Easy Shredded Chicken Taco Meat are old favorites of mine. But I hope Real Food Slow Cooker Recipes will teach even the most seasoned home cook a thing or two about the versatility of their slow cooker.

This recipe for Chorizo Spiced Pork is one of my personal favorites from the ebook. The blend of spices compliments the pork perfectly, and you can really dress up this dish however you like! One of the best parts? Leftovers!
