Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger!

Welcome to the July Edition of Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger!

No. I am not Sea, which I am guessing you have figured out since you are not on her blog site, Book of Yum. I am Tia, which I am also hoping you have figured out since you are on my blog site. Sea is a busy, busy woman (baby and PhD, Whew! How does she do it?). So, in honor of our birthdays being so close together, I am helping her out and hosting. Actually, I thought it would be fun to try after seeing Iris at The Daily Dietribe host it. Unfortunately, I didn’t figure out that Iris was hosting it until it was over. But, I am participating this time. No excuses since I’m running it.  Anyway, I hope you participate, or at least come back and read what happened. Here is what I copied from Sea’s site to remind people how it goes.

Here’s a reminder of how the event works:

Participation is simple.

1) Pick a gluten-free blogger whose recipes you admire and adopt them by commenting on this post with your name, blog name and their name and blog name.

*Blogger’s recipes must all be gluten-free or have a way to sort and read ONLY gluten-free recipes
*Please pick a different blogger every time you participate

2) Pick one (or two!) of your gluten-free blogger’s recipes to try.

3) Make the recipe, photograph it and write a post in your blog introducing the blogger and their recipe. Link back to this event announcement in your post.

*Follow the recipe as written, as closely as possible. And, please don’t print their recipe on your post- just provide your reader a link to their original recipe.

4) Email me at glugleglutenfree[at]gmail[dot]com with your photo of the recipe, the URL of your post, name of the recipe and the URL of the original blogger’s recipe post.

*Note: If you have general questions, please don’t email me at this address but post them here so everyone can read the question (and answer). Companies are NOT welcome to email me at this address, unless a representative is planning to adopt a blogger and write about it. 😉

5) Post YOUR POST’s URL in a comment to this post, and if possible please try to visit two other blogger’s posts that are posted here (and comment!).

*The goal is to make this event more interactive and fun!

Sign up BEFORE July 25 (loose deadline; late sign-ups are ok)
Post your Review and Email me by August 3rd (firm deadline, no foolin’)

If you don’t have a blog, you are still welcome to adopt a gluten-free blogger. Sign up to adopt a blogger, write a review of one of their recipes, including your name (or pen name), the recipe URL and recipe title. Then take a photo of the completed recipe (if you can) and EMAIL ME the review and photo. I’ll create a special page just for our non-blogging participants and post it for you.

I’ll start the ball rolling by adopting Shirley Braden of gluten free easily, because she is rad and because our birthdays are also close together. I am on a birthday kick because it’s right now. Or, yesterday, since I am setting this to post the day after.

Adoption Sign-Up Sheet:

  1. Shirley Braden of gluten free easily (adopted by Tia of Glugle Gluten-Free)
  2. Elana from Elana’s Pantry (adopted by Maggie of She Let Them Eat Cake)
  3. Melissa of Gluten Free for Good (adopted by Wendy of Celiacs in the House)
  4. Carrie of Ginger Lemon Girl (adopted by Kim of Cook It Allergy Free)

  1. Hey Tia – Thanks for hosting! I’m going to try really hard to do it this month. I think I’ll choose Elana from – in case you didn’t know 🙂 – Elana’s Pantry. I’ve always wanted to try her recipes because I love how she just uses simple ingredients. I’ll look for the best dairy and egg-free ones on her site.

    • I think I may have heard of her. ;P Thanks for signing up. I was starting to get worried that I might let Sea down. Now, I feel better. I can’t wait to see what you make, Maggie. I have to try more of Elana’s recipes besides just cookies (which I just made earlier today for my sick boy).

    It’s been a long time since I adopted a gf blogger. I’d like to adopt Melissa at Gluten Free for Good. I just found her blog and not only is it full of the facts and figures and science, she cracks me up with her great writing and humor. The recipes look delicious too.

    • Yay! Now, there are at least two. (Well, three if you count me.) I am so looking forward to seeing what recipes are going to be made. Thanks for signing up, Wendy.

  3. Oooh! I would love to adopt a gf blogger! I’d like to adopt Carrie at Ginger Lemon Girl. She has a few recipes that I have been wanting to try! Here’s a perfect time!!! Count me in, please!! ;0)

    • Welcome, Kim! I have been looking at Carrie’s blog lately and thinking of trying some recipes. Can’t wait to see what you do.

    • Hi Valerie,

      Welcome! I’m glad you found it. Others seem to be doing a much better job of promoting it than I am. I need to get in gear. Can’t wait to see what you make.

  4. Okay, I had in my brain the date July 25 not the “before” part. 😉 Thanks goodness you’re okay with signups that are a little late! I’m adopting Wendy (Celiacs in the House). 🙂 And, thanks for adopting me, Tia! I didn’t even realize that’s what you meant when you were telling me you had to choose a recipe. Duh.


    • Oh, that’s ok. Didn’t want to be too hard about the deadline. It really doesn’t make a difference if sign-ups are a bit late. That doesn’t take too much work.

      And, I figured out the perfect recipe to make. I’m excited because it should be a great dinner for us this week. One less to think up.

      Can’t wait to see what you make. This is so fun.

      Tia 🙂
