This was a rough. I’m not sure I can ever do something like this again. Do you know how hard this was? I had to look at all of these wonderful pictures of all of this fabulous looking food showing up in my email, and I didn’t get to actually eat any of it. Now, I have to write all about it, and I still don’t get to eat any of it. This sucks!
OK, I did get to eat the Chicken Enchilada Casserole and Shredded Beet Salad that I made, but I really want the Beet Hummus, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Zucchini Tomato Basil Bake, Spinach Roasted Beet Zucchini Pizza, Chocolate Chip Cookies (Take 2), Banana Muffins, Sweet Sesame Noodles, and Crepes (Savory and Sweet).
And, all of it is gluten-free!
Look at the pictures. It all looks so good, you could almost eat the pictures.
And, it is all from recipes created by some fabulous gluten-free bloggers. In turn, made by some more fabulous gluten-free bloggers, who happen to come up with some great recipes themselves. If you haven’t gotten the hint, yet, you should make sure to visit the site of each recipe creator and each recipe maker because you will come away with some fabulous food to make yourself.
So, without any further ado, on with the round-up.
First and foremost, I would like to extend a hearty thank you to Sea from the Book of Yum for starting this wonderful idea. Normally, Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger is held on her site every month, but, since she has been mighty busy as of late, a few of us have been hosting for her. Iris of The Daily Dietribe (featured below) hosted in May. And, I offered to host for July. If you don’t remember from the other post, here is our list of adopters and adoptees.
- Shirley of gluten free easily (adopted by Tia of Glugle Gluten-Free (me))
- Elana from Elana’s Pantry (adopted by Maggie of She Let Them Eat Cake)
- Melissa of Gluten Free for Good (adopted by Wendy of Celiacs in the House)
- Carrie of Ginger Lemon Girl (adopted by Kim of Cook It Allergy Free)
- Dan Kohler of Renegade Kitchen (adopted by Tinsley of Celiebo) (Unfortunately, Tinsley was not able to participate this time. Be sure to check out her vlog when you get a chance, though. And, I’m sure she will be participating again, very soon.)
- Iris of The Daily Dietribe (adopted by Valerie of City Life Eats)
- Wendy of Celiacs in the House (adopted by Shirley of gluten free easily)
First we have Shirley of gluten free easily
(adopted by Tia of Glugle Gluten-Free)
I made Shirley’s Chicken Enchilada Casserole. It was absolutely fabulous. I also, informally adopted Heidi of Adventures of a Gluten-Free Mom when I wanted a salad to go with our leftovers. Her Shredded Beet Salad is wonderful. Please check out the link to the post about me making Shirley’s Chicken Enchilada Casserole and Heidi’s Shredded Beet Salad.
Next, we have Elana from Elana’s Pantry
(adopted by Maggie of She Let Them Eat Cake)
Maggie chose to make Elana’s Beet Hummus and Chocolate Chip cookies. I can say for sure those cookies are great. And, the hummus? I’m sure it tastes great, but it’s also cute. You can’t beat that. Check out Maggie’s post for her new party idea and admiration of Elana. (Who doesn’t admire her?)
Third is Melissa of Gluten Free for Good
(adopted by Wendy of Celiacs in the House)
Wendy made Melissa’s Zucchini Tomato Basil Bake and Spinach Roasted Beet Zucchini Pizza. (I have a feeling beets are still in season.) I haven’t read Melissa’s blog, yet. But, after looking at these pictures and reading Wendy’s post, I think I’m going to have to. By the way, does Wendy photograph for Martha Stewart in her spare time?
In addition, we had Carrie of Ginger Lemon Girl
(adopted by Kim of Cook It Allergy Free)
Kim decided to make Carrie’s Chocolate Chip Cookies. I think plenty of people in the world agree with me when I say, “We can never have too many chocolate chip cookies. Especially good ones.” And, just a side note. I also like my chocolate chunks frozen. You’ll have to read Kim’s post to find out what I mean.
Valerie made Iris’ Banana Muffins and Sweet Sesame Noodles. She had breakfast and lunch. Or dinner and dessert. Either way, it looks like she had a happy tummy. You can take a look at Valerie’s happy tummy post here.
And, last, but not least, is Wendy of Celiacs in the House
(adopted by Shirley Braden of gluten free easily)
Shirley decided to make Wendy’s Crepes. Savory and sweet versions. I haven’t had crepes in forever, but I think I’m going to have to try this out. Seriously, couldn’t you just take a fork to your computer screen, right now. According to Shirley’s post, this was a dinner and dessert combo. I wish I had been there, but she’s, like, 3000 miles away. 🙁
So, there you have it. The July round-up of Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger. Hop on over to all of these sites and give them a read. You will not be disappointed. Not only are the recipes and pictures amazing, they are all wonderful writers. Very entertaining to read.
Until later, here’s to…Living better, easily!™
