Carrie Forbes was raised in Botetourt County, where her mom and dad (retired Roanoke Times reporter Cody Lowe) instilled in her a love of good food. But she never knew how much she enjoyed cooking until she grew up and moved to North Carolina.
There, the James River High School graduate also decided to start a blog about her attempt to switch to a gluten-free diet, which eventually would relieve her of some miserable health problems. It happened that Forbes’ switch to the gluten-free lifestyle came as more and more Americans were making the same choice.
Forbes’ blog caught the attention of a publisher, who asked her to write a cookbook. “The Everything Gluten-Free Slow Cooker Cookbook” was released in October.
I asked Forbes to tell us more about her experience and share a couple of her favorite recipes.
