Stephanie O'Dea's Green Bean Casserole

Rachael Ray was spot-on when she used the word "lovely" to describe two savory Thanksgiving slow cooker dishes my talented friend, Stephanie O'Dea, whipped up on the Rachael Ray Show yesterday.

Stephanie is as delightful in person as she is here on the show. A few years back I shared a room with her at a blogger retreat and seriously, she emits the same positive energy off camera as she does on camera! She is a gluten-free trailblazer and I commend her for proving time and time again that gluten-free can be just as mouth-watering as gluten-full. Stephanie is the gal who set out to use a slow cooker every day for a full year and documented it on her blog.

Stephanie recently released her fourth book 365 Slow Cooker Suppers. I haven't seen it yet but can't wait as every recipe is written with gluten-free options (not sure about the dairy).

For today I just wanted to give Stephanie a shout and tell her that, once again, she's made the gluten-free community proud and to thank her for one drool-worthy green bean casserole recipe!
